  • A more correct version…

    <div .class="BioContainer" style="float:left;margin-bottom:20px">
    
      <Your Image code here aligned left from the insert image page> 
    
      <div class="BioContent" style="float:left">
    
        <ul style="list-style:none">
            <li><b>Name: </b>Steven Paul</li>
            <li><b>Age: </b>51</li>
            <li><b>Born: </b>May 16, 1959</li>
            <li><b>Occupations and Titles: </b>Director, Writer, Actor, Visual Effects Producer</li>
            <li><b>Filmography: </b></li>
            <li>code for info button</li>
        </ul>
    
    </div>
    </div>

    If your page is going to repeat the “Image/Bio” format that you have on that page, then you should create yourself a Template.

    Something like this…

    <div .class="BioContainer" style="float:left;margin-bottom:20px">
    
      <Your Image code here aligned left from the insert image page> 
    
      <div class="BioContent" style="float:left">
    
        <ul style="list-style:none">
            <li><b>Name: </b>Peace Keeper Jack</li>
            <li><b>Bio: </b>Bla bla bla....</li>
        </ul>
    
    </div>
    </div>

    When you want to add another Producer/Author/Person and their Bio, you just insert this template into your post, then fill in the info.

    The whole thing will float left under the bio above it, and will add 20px(or whatever you set it to)of margin to the bottom to put some space between bios.

    You can clean it up a bit, by assigning a class to the elements that have in-line styles, and place the style info in the style.css, but either way will work.

    The nice thing about having the styling in your style.css is that once you have it styled the way you want you never have to edit the styling again, you just paste it where you want it, then insert the image where it goes and add the bio info in the unordered list items.

    Instead of putting everything in it’s own p tag, you should take all the parts of that bio, image, text, the info button, and put it in it’s own div, float the image left in the div, and float the div left.

    You might try adding <param name="wmode" value="transparent"> to the object tag.

    and wmode="transparent" to the embedded tag.

    Having a navigation bar with external links in a theme? I’m not an SEO expert, so I can only offer my opinion on that, but I certainly would not presume so at first inspection.

    My interpretation was that he wanted to create a page, and have the link for the new page redirect to an external site, as opposed to going to the new page it’s self, which seems odd to me; Why not have the gallery on the same site?

    Anyhow, google calls such a redirect a gateway page, and they issue penalty for doing it.

    So my question is; Why do it that way and receive a penalty from the search engines, when you can simply create a direct link to the gallery and get credit on the gallery site for an incoming link?

    I can think of more/better reasons to NOT do that sort of redirect than I can reasons to do that redirect.

    Why would anyone insist on a redirect when the penalties out weigh the benefits?

    No, it’s just a link to an external URL. Are you suggesting that all external links are bad for SEO, that by (for example) linking to your domain from your profile here you are irreparably damaging wordpress.org’s SEO?

    No a link out is not the same(in google’s eyes)as a page link that takes you away from the site that contains the actual page.

    Maybe google can tell the difference between someone linking to cheap Viagra/porn/gambling and someone linking to their gallery.

    Maybe the user wouldn’t notice much that they’ve been taken offsite to view the gallery, but they might find it odd to discover the menus are all different from the page they were just on. Or does he have his gallery set up with menus that lead back to the original site?

    Lol, a multiple server website, with every page on a different server you can handle way more traffic.

    Anyway,

    My question still stands; Why didn’t he just say he wanted to link to his gallery?

    I asked why he wanted to link to an external site and he just replied “Why not”?

    Then, after the fact he says he wants to link to his gallery.

    To me that looks suspiciously like a hidden agenda.

    That’s my official statement.

    The user has a navigation bar on his blog that automatically lists all pages. It’s a common feature in most themes. The user wanted to know how to add a page (so that it appeared in the nav bar) that redirected to an external URL (the gallery).

    Isn’t that bad for SEO?

    I thought the search engines considered that a gateway page, and hand out negative points for doing it.

    You both must be psychic.

    Anyway,

    How can he have another site with his gallery on it when he can’t even put a link on the one he has?! LMAO

    And would he have to use a plugin to put a simple link up???

    Lol, what next; Plugins to put punctuation on your sentences?

    Seriously, it’s getting so that you can’t throw a dead cat around here without hitting a plugin.

    Are all webmasters of today unable to write simple html and css?

    I could start a new blog on the subject. I call it Read More…

    No, do this…

    // <?php the_permalink() ?>

    Lol

    So now what are you going to do?

    You are overthinking this.

    I just need a button which takes the user to my gallery.

    So why didn’t you say that to begin with, instead of trolling?

    Anyway,

    Did you read the help page I suggested?

    I’ve tried everything short of moving the video down to give the drop down room, but nothing works.

    I’m guessing YouTube is running a script to insure that their vids stay on top no matter what you set your menu’s z-index to. So you’re going to have to force the vids to behave, and the help page I linked to is the only reference I’ve found on how to do that.

    Yeah, but you’re using deception to do it, and the search engines will likely ban your for life for doing that.

    Why not just add a link in the sidebar that describes the site, or mention it in an article if it’s relevant to your content.

    Are you asking me to help you link farm? No Way Jose!

    Why would you do that?

    You don’t need a new page to link to different website.

    Do you mean how do you link to the new page from a different website?
