I have made my school's Website, which needs to update every single day some news or events.
So I decided to divide the Home page in 2 columns: News & Events.
These 2 columns should be 2 positions x & y; they should show just the articles which have been told to display in that position, OR each position should show all the articles of a specified category.
Anyway, my biggest problem isn't to assign a category to an article or to give a position to this one; but my real problem is:
How do I create a position of the exactsize I want and to 'position' it (sorry for this word-joke) in the exact place I wish it to appear?
I already know I need to modify a file via FTP to create a new position, but how do I 'customize it' in this way? In addition I'd like to make them appear just for a limited time, after that they all will be displayed in a general article in another menu voice.
I am leaving you my Website page. I really know you'd need maybe my template file? If so please do not rate this post yet but ask me for the exact file you wish to have before helping here, thanks!
Consider that right now we have 2 columns but they're not 2 positions but 2 articles side by side which is horrible and not dynamic!
