    Hello, first I want to thank admin for providing excellent support for this product. Now for my question. This is in regards to creating master pages to be used as a template. I have downloaded a HTML template from a website. Is there a way to convert this into a master template? I can open it up in Visual Basic 2008 and save it as a .master template. But I notice that no "master.vb" file is created which I believe is the code behind file I need in order for the template to show up correctly. Any suggestions?  Thanks, Don

    Hi don collins,

    The code behind of the master page is not required. If  you are not going to add any server logic to the master page you can remove it.

    All the best,

    Hello, well I have learned how to make a master page using visual Studio. Now here is the problem I need to fix as far as my layout. I want to make a page that has a cell down the middle for content and has a sidebar on each side of it. I used a one row table with content placeholders in each cell. The height is not specified so that each cell expands vertically as content is added. The problem is that if I put content into a cell...the remaining cells move down the page in relation to how much vertical content I put into this cell. I would like each cell to have a position which is independent of the content placed in any other cell. Here is a link to the the look I am going for in regards to layout.  http://www.fringeparanormal.com/links/test.aspx  (note: the blue spaces between the cells are just cells I have colored as blue)

    So, basically the way it is now, if one cell has 5 lines of content, the other cells will post their content starting 5 lines down the page as opposed to starting their content at the top of the page.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Don

    Hello don collins,

    Thank you for getting back to us.

    You should define the look and feel of your master pages, and in this case the tables which you have used with CSS rules. You can set CssClass property of your table and then provide style rules for this class. The best approach is to build ASP.NET Themes for your website, which Sitefinity will detect automatically and you will be able to assign them you your templates/pages through the Sitefinity page editor.

    A good learning resource on styling your Sitefinity website is the following webinar: Designing & Skinning with Sitefinity
