I wanted to put a main category 'nav' type bar near the top of my pages. I can do this easily by adding a nav bar (FP nav bar looks like crap and doesn't give me the links I want in it for some reason by default; however, I if I cut out the default crap and paste in what I really want to show up there, that works); however......
I have two separate pages that I use for the background. One is a solid color with a decoration down the left side for the main category pages, and one is a solid white page with only a left border that matches the same decoration that is on the solid pages.
I use two different colored fonts for the pages involved. The solid color page uses a beige colored font even for the links because the background is a very dark burgundy. The white page uses a navy blue font against the white which shows up very nicely but has burgundy links to match the other pages.
If I try to create the nav bar with my copy/paste method to get the text links for the categories...it immediately defaults to whichever color font the page is already formatted to use......however because it's a shared border, it goes to the white page the same way with the cream colored font that you can barely see. If I use the burgundy color for those hyperlinks on the white page, it tries to use the same color on the burgundy pages, and it all disappears because the color is identical to the background on those pages.
So, even though the shared border would then apply to all the pages on the site at one time, I can't use a shared border.
If I use a table row instead, everything lines up in the right spot with exactly the right color text hyperlinks and the templates are perfect for now using for any new pages. But it means I have to manually create the table on every existing page before I publish the site.
Anybody got a hint on how I can get the table inserted into the pages I want (two different tables based on font color alone) without having to do each one manually?
