    Hi you guys I am new at both at this forum and at designing webs. Actually I do not have any formal training just manuals, books, and a lot of google. At this momnet I am designing my own website using Expression web 3. I created a master page with two content regions. There is one of the pages that I want to list all the shows that I have been in (I am a sculptor) in one of the content regions. But also I want to create un mouseover effect that when the user put the pointer in one of the items on the list a picture of the show appears on the other content regions. I know how to link and everything but I do not know how make the picture appear on the content region that I want. First of all, is that even possible? and if it is how can I achieve it.
    Thank you so much
    Alfredo

    There are a number of ways, but I personally don't know anything about Expression Web 3.

    I would use PHP/MySQL for a database of shows, and the gallery .... and use
    Javascripting (JQuery) to do the mouseover thing. But I don't know if you can do
    server-side scripting with Expression, and how you would do that offline and online
    at the same time. You might also want to use Flash. Artist websites are a good
    match for Flash presentations.

    So, you'll have to wait until someone with Expression knowledge responds ... maybe they
    have some better ideas of how to approach this. But welcome to WDF anyhow.

    I'm not a sculptor myself, but I was involved in the programming for the
    Society of Minnesota Sculptors: http://www.mnsculptors.com

    They use a lot of PHP to allow members to control their own galleries (login system).

    Forget the server-side stuff, you don't really need it for what you're trying to achieve. I wouldn't really recommend doing what you're trying to do with a rollover event. This can be quite annoying to users. I would recommend displaying an image when the user clicks then you can do a simple javascript to populate the source of an image

    function showImage(imgPath){
    var container = document.getElementById('imgHolder');
    container.src = imgPath;
    }

    The link would look like this:

    <a href="javascript:showImage('image/path/here.jpg");">

    and you would have an image like this:

    <img src="path/to/image.jpg" id="imgHolder" />

    I'm not really sure how comfortable you are with getting down to the code level, but I always code everything by hand because the code that wysiwyg programs produce is garbage.I especially dislike Expressions, because it uses some really misleading terminology that will really just confuse you further as you move into hand-coding things. It's all about having maximum control over your site.

    You must keep attention toward the links and the target, there should be a very good usage of the anchor text, your keyword should be strong and the design of your website should be great and it should be more appealing for the visitors so that the conversion rate of your website can increase...
