How do I center the Music top bar/frame (See picture above). The Music top bar/frame is not center aligned with the pictures frames below, it requires to be moved to the right of the screen.

Pictures frames Code:

<div align: center>
  <table style="Width: 800px; HEIGHT: 122px" cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 rules=all align=center border=0>
  
<TBODY>
  
 <tr>
      
<td vAlign=top align=center width: 800px height: 122px valign: top><img src="../Web-Site-Album-Pages/userfiles/MW-Head-800X130.gif" width: 800px height: 122px></td>
    </tr>  </TBODY>   </table>  </div>


Any HELP is greatly appreciated. THANKS.

Let's see:

1. <div align: center> - invalid code. No such attribute exists as "align". The attributes must be used this way: attibute="value" - equal sign, double quote, no spaces, preferably small letters.

2. valign="top" alig="center" style="width:800px;" - please refer to the allowed HTML attributes and don't mix them with CSS values which must be used as style="attribute:value; attribute2:value;". Separate the attributes with semicolons and use double quotes again.

I suggest you to learn some HTML and CSS before making such customizations. The code you provided is junk, and I couldn't even figure out what you'd like to achieve.

The phrase that comes to mind is "tag soup."

Monte, a link to an actual album that shows what you're trying to accomplish would be a help.

Your question refers to a music bar, but the code you've provided has nothing about a music player in it - it's just pointing to a GIF file somewhere.

You refer to "pictures frame code," but there is no such thing. Where are you plugging this code into Tiger, and where do you want the custom content to appear?

Your screenshot doesn't look like anything from Tiger at all.

OK
The following is what I want to create using the Tiger Skin if it is possible.

My family Web Site comprises single (one) “Main Web Page” and many family albums. What I was attempting to do was to create a new “Main Web Page” which points to a “Main Index of Albums”, I have recompiled all my albums using the “Tiger Skin” and utilizing the “Music” option and all seems to be working just fine. So my question is, can I generate a single page with the ability to points to the “Main Index of Albums”

The “Main-Web-Page” Comprises of four items:
1. The “Music Top Bar” Generated by the Skin.
2. The “Montanaro World” MW-Head-800X130.gif.
3. The “Family Picture” DCP_0467.jpg.
4. A small Table which contains the link to the “Main Index of Albums” and some text.

The four Items above should be placed in single line in the center and vertically.
I hope the above is somewhat clear as to what I’m trying to accomplish.

Any HELP is greatly appreciated. THANKS.

By the way this “Main-Web-Page” were previously compiled using the “Chameleon Skin” and “Turtle Skin” and NO PROBLEMS were incurred.

Ah, much clearer. Now I get it.

I can also see why doing this with Tiger is almost certainly the wrong approach. Tiger doesn't produce a simple page of HTML and CSS that can easily be tinkered with. It produces pages driven by a JSON database file, using scripts that format the page "on the fly," as it were. Trying to force it to create a very different kind of page is like using a nuclear power plant to power your flashlight - not really the right tool for the job.

The kind of page you're talking about creating would be very simple using just a text editor. It's basic HTML/CSS. I can cobble together a quick demo page. It shouldn't be difficult to give it a "look and feel" similar to your Tiger-generated index of albums. Which style of Tiger are you using for that? That will tell me things like what to use for the page background and for the font, for example.

Thank you jGromit for your prompt response.

I’m on Windows 10, I use jAlbum Version 14.1.10 and Tiger Skin Version 1.4.1. If you can supply me with a demo page it would help me greatly, I’m sure that I could manage the rest.

Tiger <body bgcolor="#E6D4BA">
TBody {border:4px solid #B58757}
img {border:4px solid #B58757}

The Page picture should give you a better Idea. Again Thank you very much for your help.

Here are some files for you to play with. I've included a couple of stock images, just so you can see how it works - you'll want to make some changes based on the actual dimensions of your images, both in the HTML and in the CSS. All of the files go into one directory - the HTML file, the CSS file, and the image files. You'd have to provide your own MP3 - just plant it in the same directory.

We need to be clear about some things. First, this really has nothing to do with Tiger. The Tiger skin just isn't built to create this kind of simple HTML page. This is something that isn't even created in jAlbum - it's just hand-coded in a text editor.

However, taking this approach, you can't really get the Tiger "drop-down" music controls - that would require a bunch of Javascript, and probably isn't worth the effort. After all, people aren't going to be lingering over your home page for more than a few seconds, and once they follow the link to the galleries, the music will stop anyway (and/or be replaced by the music track in the galleries).

If you want the music to start automatically and/or to loop, just add those attributes to the <audio> tag:
<audio src="something.mp3" controls autoplay loop></audio>


I've given the page some simple responsiveness (like what Minimal does for its slide pages), so the images and the link box at the bottom will shrink in width to fit into a small browser window.

I put a little padding around the images, just because I think it looks better. You can easily change that in the CSS file, along with a lot of the other stuff. If you're uncertain about how to do something, post back.

Let me begin by thanking you for the code you have provide me (monte.html and monte.css).

Because I do not give up easily, I have taken the opportunity to integrate the code that you have provided me into the Tiger Skin. One thing I can tell you it works very well, there is only one small issue which I must admit that I can’t resolve and it is the “Montanaro’s World” dos not appears in “Italic” font and the color is not correct the page is displayed (see Picture2.jpg). The top portion of the page is fine (see Picture2.jpg).

Finally, I could use help in resolving the “Font and color) issue. I would be much appreciative and thank full for help and/or suggestion you can provide. Again thank you for all your help.

If you're going to try to take some nice, clean HTML and CSS, and shoehorn it into a database-driven skin like Tiger, you're on your own. It's a bad idea.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support and help. I would also like to take this opportunity to reiterate the quote from my last posting “I do not give up easily”. Thus, I would like to take the opportunity to share with you and anyone that reads the posts that I was 100% successful integrating the code (html and css) that you have provided me into the Tiger Skin. I now have a web site page that looks great and working very well.

Again, I like thank you for your help and support.

Well, there was no reason to give up. The simpler solution was to keep your own home page out of jAlbum, since it's a completely different animal. I certainly wouldn't dream of trying to use jAlbum to generate the opening page of my skin demo site. You're using a screwdriver to sink a nail. Congratulations on coming up with a considerably more difficult solution, but it's a mystery to me why you would go down that path.

One last favor, will you PLEASE remove my attachments from the previous posts, I’m not able to do that, Thanks.

Why? I don't like scrubbing out history that might help another user. There's nothing personal that's revealed in any of that material, and your site is password-protected, in any event (a source of real frustration to anyone trying to help you, I might add).
