I tried to use CRZ's suggestion for the HTML in my header and got close, but if I didn't close the tags it completely and totally mangled the thread to the point that I wound up deleting two posts and now I can't post in it because it thinks I still have the last post.

This the relevant HTML I found in the source for what I need:

[tr][td bgcolor=0c024a valign=top width=80% height=220 colspan=2][font face=arial size=-1 color=E0E0E0][table][tr][td bgcolor=#ff0000][FONT COLOR=#FFFFAA FACE=Geneva]

I edited it to this to suit my font/color scheme:

[tr][td bgcolor=0c024a valign=top width=80% height=220 colspan=2][font face="MS Sans Serif" size="-1" color="#CCFFFF"][table][tr][font face="MS Sans Serif" size="-1" color="#CCFFFF"]

I don't know why the [font] tag repeats, so I didn't remove either of them. Now, without [/table] at the end, the thread would be mangled. But with the [/table] at the end, the header didn't even affect the post. WTF is going on here.

To CRZ (who was kind enough to help) or Guru Zim: feel free to tell me to "shut up and deal with it" if this is too hard to bother explaining or if I'm just being stupid. Also, if there is an appropriate forum for this, feel free to point me in that direction.

//EDIT: I absolutely suck. Seriously. Brackets have been changed to protect the thread.

It took me awhile, but I finally got mine to work. I hat to hit CRZ up a couple times on AIM to ask a couple dumb questions, then I tweaked and tweaked and tweaked the code a little (ok, a lot), then it finally started cooperating.

And when I say "tweaking", I mean the kind where you dont know what the hell you're doing and you just keep going back and making changes (and changes and changes and changes) until it finally looks like what you want it to look like.

I almost have it, but the problem seems to be that I have to put quotations around the name of my chosen font face. Problem is, when I put quotation marks in the HTML font tag, it causes the thread to be mangled.

I have NO idea.

If it helps, here's the header I use:

[table background="http://home.earthlink.net/~ironcladlou/pic2.jpg" width=100% height=231][td][font face="OCR A Extended" color=lime]

Unless you're trying to do columns with your text (like I used to), this should work for you.

Looking at it, I think I see your problem. You've got a td tag before the table tag. Here's how it should look:

[table][td bgcolor=0c024a valign=top width=80% height=220 colspan=2][font face="MS Sans Serif" size="-1" color="#CCFFFF"]

Then in your footer (after your sig):

[/font][/td][/table]

I think the tr tags are superfluous, unless you're trying to do something wacky with your text. I don't think you need the valign in the td tag, and I think you might have to put the bgcolor in the table tag. If you do all that and it still looks weird, try matching your height and width to mine.

edit:// I'm using your tags on this post...is this what you want it to look like?

I do believe, after many attempts and much appreciated help, I finally freakin' got it.
