How do I make a banner appear at the top of any page on my site?

For example, if I give someone some space, it says "Hosted by domain.com" on a banner along the top.

Here's an example, http://www.phpbbhacks.com/ (the iFroggy bit at the top)

Sorry for all these questions lately. Thanks.

Have you got your banner made yet? Can you use Server Side Includes (SSI)? What code have you done already and do you have your pages online yet? There are different ways so not giving any code here yet for banner.

What technology are you using? You could in any instance use an includes file to have on your page tables top row..? Otherwise if you are using .NET you could integrate it into your masterpage template

I want the banner to be 100% width (maybe image at left and image at right, with pure black in the middle that gets stretched 100%?), and about 10 pixels high.

I can use PHP, and have unlimited MySQL databases. The web host says, "Apache/2.0.54 (Fedora) Server" on a 404 page.

Thanks

Are you talking about two images, one left and one right, with a 10px high black bar between them? There are still many ways of doing this and, without the image(s) you are working from, it's hard to visualize what you want. The link you gave shows one image at the left.

So, I would use PHP to display the banner, and then the HTML would show under it?

I use SSI (or will as I'm still converting files) for all my pages. If you want to use SSI, find or make an .htaccess file. Put it in your root directory. On the file put:

AddType text/html .shtml
AddHandler server-parsed .shtml

Make a plain file that contains the banner code that you want to use. Mine, if you want to use it, but you need to transfer styling to a separate CSS file that you use for all pages. Name file whatever you want with an HTML extension. Do not use the doc type, <html>, <head>, <meta>, <title> or <body> tags. Only what you would need to put banner on each page.

You will have to rename all your pages from *.html to *.shtml.

Say, you named the file _a_banner.html, you would then place the following where you want the banner to appear in one of two ways:

File in same directory: <!--#include file="_a_banner.html" -->

File in different directory: <!--#include virtual="/_a_banner.html" -->

Test it online to see if you have done it right and banner is where you want it on the *.shtml file(s).

NOTE: I named my files with " _a_ " to keep them alphanumerically at the top in my editor's window. Name them as you like.
