I want a customizable, custom side bar that I can change and such. I want to make a website with all custom, or requested HTML. As in, I don't want to put text into fields on pages then have sites arrange it automatically for me. Any help?

I know basic HTML/XHTML, I know how Javascript works (but I'm in need of practice with it), and I know how CSS works (but also in need of practice with it).

ex. of a side bar I'd like to be able to have a similar one of:

(or any other, any facier side bars. I just have no clue how to have my pages centered off to the right and have info on the sides.)

I'm not sure if I am understanding what you are wanting.

I looked at the example and that is a pretty basic layout (header, left navbar, content) and since you said you have coding experience I am wondering what you are actually wanting.

If you have some knowledge of CSS just setup a basic structure as follows:

#header {
}
#leftnav {
	float: left;
	width: 25%;
}
#content {
}

This would give you a header area, a left navigation area of 25% of the browser screen, and a content area of 75% (the rest) of the browser screen.

Now you could create a seperate div inside the navigation area and create your menu system like in the example you presented.

Again, I don't know if that is what you are shooting for...

Ahh! I think it is! I'll go take a look and see sometime soon. Of the tutorials I read online, they never really explained how to set up navbars or whatever you'd like to call them. And I'm a little rusty, it's been awhile. Thanks for the help!
