Please upload your pictures of rods/paddles/beads on the individual colour pages to illustrate the glasses.



Not sure about all the separate pages for each colour... Wouldn't it be better to put the descriptions into this page, otherwise there is an awful lot of clicking to do...

okie dokie

How about I link only to the colours that I have much more information on/ do interesting things? I am thinking that when people add images/further info at a later date this page could become v.crowded


Is this something that we want here though... I'm not sure... How useful is a whole load of pictures of the colours... maybe it is.. maybe it isn't. I'm not sure

creating a table

I see your point Dickie, you could visit any glass suppliers website to see that sort of thing. I was more thinking of pictures of colour reactions/effects between the glasses, effects of striking glass, which are most effective with silver to make organic beads etc. with the thought of spin off pages to interesting articles.

The resource I have works better in table form but I can't manage to cut and paste it in here in its current form or to create a table from scratch her in the wiki


You can't really import tables from other things. Tables are a bit quirky, but are actually not that hard once you understand what you are doing with them. This is an example of a simple table

{| class="wikitable"
! header 1
! header 2
! header 3
| row 1-cell 1
| row 1-cell 2
| row 1-cell 3
| row 2-cell 1
| row 2-cell 2
| row 2-cell 3

This will look like this

header 1 header 2 header 3
row 1-cell 1 row 1-cell 2 row 1-cell 3
row 2-cell 1 row 2-cell 2 row 2-cell 3

I need to add some CSS to make them look nice...

I'll hold fire on adding more to this page for a little bit and pop the info in as table in once you have worked your magic ;)

CSS Added

I have added the CSS now to the site... so tables will appear properly !!!, as you can probably see

Info entered

What is CSS?

I have entered some basic info for vetro now - it looks so much better now there are columns, thanks Dickie. The widths look off from catogory to catogory, is there a way to fix this esily?

just logged in using internet explorer instead of mozilla - looks brill now that I can see it properly. Just need to suss out how to standardise the column width.


CSS is Cascading Style Sheets Wikipedia:Cascading_Style_Sheets It's the language that defines how to style web pages and make them look nice. This Wiki did not have the settings to make tables look nice, so I have just added the relevant bits. Which is why they look better now...

Oh and I did the column width as well !!
