sorry i had to abbreviate the topic title to get it to fit.
ANYWAYS. basically ive been skinning for a while now, and im loving it. BUT ive come across my first issue out of all my skins thus far. Just using fireworks, i made a background image that includes a faux navigation, if you will. its links to the xanga homepage, etc etc etc, but its not actually a toolbar - its just part of the image. Ive been using this technique for a while. I simply used image mapper to map those parts of the image. interestingly, though, i can only click on those areas when the left margin of the main text body of my blog is set at 150 pixels or more, like so :
HOWEVER, in order for everything to look right, i need it to look like this: (Remember, the differences between these 2 is in the left margin.)
when i enter it in like that, the text moves to the correct spot, but my navigational links are completely null and void. Im wondering if there is a way around this. if it helps, the basic image for the skin is here....
this is my test xanga - you can see the problem.
as another interesting note, the top links (myspace, facebook, aim) , and the "osnapiheartthat2" link on the alarm clock (that links back to my main page) work just fine.
here is all of my coding, just in case.
