Is the page a domino page, form or a static html file on the server?

Hi

You can do it by changing the design of the form.For that use background HTML tag to accomplish this task. Embed the html tag into the form like

[<BODY TEXT="000000" BGCOLOR="ffffff" BACKGROUND="<Path to ImageFile(GIF/JPG)>">]

This would open the existing documents with the specified background on the form.


PS: You can also use the background property of form to paste or import the graphic.

Good Luck

It is an existing HTML doc. I didn't make it in domino (it is UNIXhelp1.3) i downloaded it from Internet. but my boss wants to have the same background as in the rest of the page i am making.

I know i can paste a graphic to the background of a domino page but before i can do that i must open the HTML in Domino.

Thnx for the speedy respons

AFAIK you cannot use notes to edit html files.
What you could do is create a form in a database with a rich text field on it.
The create a doc in notes using the form.
Import (File -> Import) the html file into the Rich Text field.
Save the Doc.
The orgional html file is nolonger needed and the page can be edited in Notes.

Any good to you?

Cheers,
Sam

But then the problem would be that i would have to edit 200+ documents in that way which would take me hours. I only want to view and edit the HTML

In that case you'd probably be best writing a script to run on the machine with the files on it to insert into the body tag on the html the required html to produce the correct background.

Or do the notes based solution and write a little bit of code that imports all html docs from a specific directory and converts them to notes documents (probably not easy as IIRC import is part of the UI in notes)
