View Full Version : background image in left column - how to in mAX?

09-10-2003, 05:17 AM
hello all,

I'm trying to work out how to place a background image in the left column - i'm now using ms2 max, and the code is obviously drastically different, and the old help info doesn't seem to apply anymore.

Can anyone help me with this please? I image it to be a CSS issue - and if so maybe someone could point me in the right direction so i can try and figure out how to create and add a class -and to where - to enable me to do this.

thanks a lot, tim

MAX uses a template system. The left column (along with the right column and content column) is now on the main_page.tpl.php file found in the templates directory.

Open that file and find:

!-- body //-->
<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="3" cellpadding="3">
<td width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" valign="top"><table border="0" width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">
<!-- left_navigation //-->
<?php require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'column_left.php'); ?>
<!-- left_navigation_eof //-->
The code:

<td width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" valign="top"> is for the left column.
