View Full Version : Problem with a FORM
12-26-2000, 09:02 AM
Hi everyone - I have been challenged with a problem, and DAAM it's annyoing. Take a look at this page:
The problem is that the form tag for soem reason makes the upper row of every entry thicker! Why - and more importantly: How do I prevent it?

It is a pet peeve of mine to visit a site for the purpose of helping and to get hit with pop-ups...grrrr.
Anyway, the only form I saw was the search at the bottom. Am I missing something?

Well, actually it's a pop-under, but that does not matter much for a pop-up hater like me and yourself. The window makes good money though, and pops up only once per unique user, so I have decided that it was a decent tradeoff. Anyway, I mistyped the url, I realize that now - it should be http://www.smartsmartsmart.com/downloads20.php3?Category=1
There! I would be glad if you could help!

Grrrrr, I had the same problem with my site. I don't know the HTML solution to the problem, but I created a "go" button in Photoshop that had some transparent space above it to push it down to the right place. I could also color it, which is pretty cool. To see, go to http://www.yeahbuddy.f2s.com/home.html and scroll down to my newsletter signup. Hope that helps.

I'll have a look on your page as soon as I've finished downloading on my nice 33.6 modem.. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif Argh - cannot wait until we get broadband coverage.
Anyway - the most annoying part is that I actually managed to fix it by mistake when I was debugging the PHP code, but it didn't seem too important to me at the time, so I ignored it.

Went to the new link...I do not see the problem?

Ah, darn, I have disabled voting for user that is not regisered. Anyway - the problem was that the submitboxes makes the table cell grow thicker, and that look very ugly.
I think that I have to live with it - it was a purely cosmetic thing, anyway.

If you would like to send me the source code I can take a lok at it. It is most likely caused by a <p tag> frontpage likes to throw those in, or it could be a simple matter of placing the from tags outside of the <td>

ME DO NOT use filthy FrontPage.
Frontpage = EVIL
ME use TEXT EDITOR. WUSS use frontpage, real men write the code by hand.
Me put form tags outside <td> it now works fine - you are god of HTML - thank YUO

Glad you got it working. I am not ashamed to say I use front page when setting up the general table layout, then break open wordpad clean up the mess and begin the real work.
