I'm new to sandvox and currently have just the free download from the web, though I will be purchasing it if I can wrap my head around the things I need to do with it. So here's where I am and what I need to do.
I'm building a ministry website that currently has 25 or so different Bible studies. Each of those Bible studies has its own page, but... I need one page that lists all 25+ studies so you can easily see what studies are available. The current website is wordcenterministries.org/Bible_Study.html there you can see what we did through iWeb, (but the problem with iWeb is the Navbar is to big, no drop down menus, and we need to add a YouTube page now and there is no room.) Anyway, as you can see we have thumbnails for all of our Bible studies (showing the front cover of the book) next to the link to that book's page.
In short I'd like to make 2, 3, 4, or even 5 columns of links. 25+ links right on top of each other wouldn't look right. I've seen some stuff about css and html (but that stuff makes me seasick) though I am willing to try to learn some, I don't understand what has been said about it in other posts on this forum. Is there anyone who could help me with this? I only need this column stuff for a couple of pages.
I think you can steal the photo album collection and bend it to your will, and leave out the custom html stuff.
I gave it a try with your site elements, and it looks reasonable. Here's an instruction sheet on how to do it: http://kofrojl.clarify-it.com/d/x9zf4n
Thanks! I think that will work! I'll keep going on my site now and make sure I don't have any other problems that I might encounter before I commit to sandvox. Hopefully there isn't. I have all week to see if I can convert everything over.
Again, thank you very much for the quick response and a reasonable way to accomplish what I was going for. I guess I know what I'll be doing tonight now.
I concur with Jim. Photo Album is very flexible, you just have to think outside the box a bit. I just updated our church website to have a more graphic look and used Photo Album extensively.
Just take a few minutes to sketch out what you want your page to look like and you should find it fairly easy to accomplish.
Good luck with your design!
