Add a Footer like Creators.ning.com - - overall look and feel.
A few notes first:
Below is an example of the Footer like Creators.ning.com, and the results of the code from this tip.
Writer Chick inspired me to get this done! =) I have documented the HTML as clearly as possible. When you first look at the code, it may look overwhelming. But trust me, it's easy to edit. I have written this so all code goes in the Bottom Instant Ad Box. You will not have to add any code to Advanced CSS or Custom Code Box.
Since I am including the CSS in the Instant Ad Box, it should load faster, not take up space in your Advanced CSS, and hopefully override Custom Profile Page settings.
Instructions to add Bottom Instant Ad Box:
I could have left out the ability to change the attributes like color, font-family, font-size for: Column Header, Links, background color, etc... It would make it easier to install, but much less control over your look.

As if I don't have enough to do LOL! Thanks for the tip Jen - I can't wait to add it to my network:) *Sigh* My network is looking a little tired so maybe this will help spice it up a bit;)
Janettee, Great! Good to see you. =)
Good to see you as well:)
Oops! Don't have a clue what I could have done wrong- But I have vertical columns all in one nice long row!!!- not laid out horizontal??? Yikes! Help please!
OOPs again- I should have addressed my question to Diane since she is the one helping folks! Sorry!
Also I noticed the member with my same problem- was advised to check the code- I made absolutely NO changes to the code- the columns are just in one list....?????
After you start fresh, or remove those odd header span tags, I believe you will be fine if you do as MyCreationz has suggested. Never click on "return to visual mode". And of course the safest route is to edit a text file, and copy/paste into Instant Ad Box using HTML button.
Exactly! Perfect, and thanks. I was just about to suggest this. When you click on "return to visual", this is typically when the code like the header example I gave to Susan, occurs.
Oops, didn't know that, but that is very good to know!
Still better to do what you're doing, Diane. Edit your text file. ;-) It's so easy to forget and click on "return to visual".
So cool - I just had the same problem (came out as long list) so went back to text file, copied and re-pasted and looks fab. Great tip - thanks.
Thanks so much! I have no clue what a header span tag is- but I will figure it out!
Also for the tip on returning to HTML- I always return to visual! Ooops!guess I best stop that!
