I totally missed this amazing tool recently while checking out all of those rounded box demos Smile

I must say, this is the most impressive thing I've seen yet in the wild world of css. Treva you're a bloody unsung legend Wink

Anyway, tinkering around with it and unfortunately have found a bug of some kind. When I preview the layout it looks fine in Firebird 0.7, but when I copy the code it messes up when I view it again.

Very strange, maybe a difference in the preview page and the output source?

Anyway, if necessary I'll hack the code from the preview page, this tool is exactly what I need to do my first XMambo template Smile

Cleva Treva's tableless CSS 2/3 column page generator

Ah, I just has a look at the source and realised I didn't have the external css file "noodle_real.css", without which it doesn't display properly.

Maybe this should be available for easier download on the generator page, or the css put into the output source?

Either way, this thing is great Smile

Cleva Treva's tableless CSS 2/3 column page generator

Hi

Well, the code isn't finished yet.

The only 2 errors I know of in the code as it stands are:

1. A missing </div> before the </body>
2. If the left and right columns are different widths, the fake background for mozilla (called mozfudge.... ) on the right column, placed with margin-right sits in the wrong place. It's easy to alter.

What I am doing at the moment (hence the testing of 3D shapes for backgrounds) is how best to apply styling to it for design. I have nearly finished that, then it will take a week to modify the code, then you can make your page ready for all the fancy graphics.

I am certainly going to have to do some tutorials too Laughing out loud

But, I designed the tool because I thought there was a need for it.

On the design, if you want it full width, with the center column fluid, it's relatively easy to do, but as IE won't allow a min-width, it (as all other fluid width ones do) falls apart on overly narrow window areas.

Trevor
