Many web site designers use a table format with navigation tools on the left side of the screen, and content on the right. It's not immediately obvious how to do this with Web Crossing, but in fact it isn't difficult.
In 5.0+ this is easily done by using the built in Themes and their various options.
Previous versions, in the "banner" section of the control panel or the banner macro use something like:
<table border=0 cellpadding=10 width=100%><tr>
<td width=145 align=left valign=top>
<a href="http://www.mysite.com/firstlink.html">First Link</a><p>
<a href="http://www.mysite.com/secondlink.html">Second Link</a><p>
<a href="http://www.mysite.com/thirdlink.html">Third Link</a><p>
</td><td align=left valign=top>
Since you haven't closed the cell or the table, Web
Crossing will fill in the second table cell. Then you
close off the cell and the table in the "footer"
section of the control panel or the footer macro:
When you're doing this kind of work, be sure to back
up your database first. If you fail to close a table
properly the page will not display and it will be
difficult to fix your error. Restoring a backup
database is much easier.
