Okay, who is it these days? Going to need a little help as it seems things in the page-making process may have changed a bit. Let me know who I should be talking to and I'll message them.

Or feel free to post your question here. But in my experience, a PM works best.

Sarah is always (rather eager) to assist the befuddled html-challenged contributor ... OMG, she changed her name back to Simon!

I'm also a CSS Guru. 8) I'm very approachable and even wrote an article on this kind of stuff. :wink:
You can contact me in private which is fine. But if you contact me in public other people benefit from it as well.

I had multiple questions. But here's the first. When hyperlinking pages, I used to just do this: <a href=//http://www.summitpost.org/mount-bigelow/710530> to get the person to go to - in this case - Mt. Bigelow's page.

but now, that sends the person to a suddenlink search page:

You need to remove the first to slashes after the equal sign. This is the correct code:

Code: Select all
<a href=http://www.summitpost.org/mount-bigelow/710530>LINK TEXT HERE</a>

or

<a href=http://www.summitpost.org/mount-bigelow/710530></a>

Following the recent site changes, I can see the default background for pictures is sort of a dark gray, or not quite black. For a table with multiple pictures and one caption spanning all pictures, I am trying to make my caption formatting match the default.

In HTML terms, what bgcolor should I enter below in place of "black" to create the same background color as the default for single pictures?

<tr bgcolor=black><td colspan=3><center><span style="color:white;">
