    </table>

    (im calling my boxes: News, FAQ, Support forum, intro section)

    7. Click the a/A ( ) button again (After you've pasted the code though)

    this should pan out to be something like




    Save here if you wish to

    8. Fill in required information
    Small boxes (Squares) = pictures
    Long boxes (Rectangles) = words

    Do not worry about links just yet, we will do that a little later Idea

    Remember : You can change the size of the boxes by changing the table width

    9. Add (or move) the new forums to it as a SUBFORUM to the one you named

    As an alternate : You can move forum's and make them a subforum via the provided tools

    10. Go to Tab 3 (the one at the index of your forum) and find your desired forums

    As an alternate : Navigate to the desired forums using the tool:



    Example: navigate to "News" and copy the URL (link)

    11.
    I)Turn back to Tab 2
    II)Return to your table and go to your boxes.
    III) find the one you have selected (lets use "News as an example again) Highlight it and click on the Hyperlink button ( ) and Paste the URL (link) there.

    12. Repeat for the remaining 7 boxes

    13. Insert image links (Don't worry about the [img] tags)

    Remember : If you wish to remove that god forsaken ugly border hit the a/A ( ) again
    and find the code

    Code:
    width="100%" border="1" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="5"

    and replace it with

    Code:
    width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="5"]

    Exclamation Remember: you can also alter these to make the box larger

    Ensure you have the name as : &npsp; Again please.

    To make a description


    14.Go back to the table view, hit the enter [Enter] button to make a NEW line, and type text in there.

    15. Save :002:
