    can anyone help im using this on my website for a subscribe got it all uploaded and working but dont know how to edit the little window it applys for people subscribing.

    <iframe src="http://mysite.com/OpenNewsletter/includethis.php" frameborder="0" width="200" height="100" style="border:1px solid #CCCCCC"></iframe>

    it come up with scroll bars and a whbite background is it possible for me to edit the colour and remove the scroll bars completly or is there a possible way for me to create the form again and send it using an actio n on a submit button

    thank you

    You can add
    Code:
    scrolling=no
    to the <iframe> tag - the scrollbars should then disappear.

    The colour is defined by the src file (http://mysite.com/OpenNewsletter/includethis.php), so you must change the background colour there.

    scrolling bit works great thanks i had alook last night i assume that the default colour is white as no colour is define would it work to integrate a css style into the coding or would it have to be a seperate sheet is is it alot more simple just changing the back ground colour

    the coding i have from opensource documents is

    <?

    session_start();


    require_once("config.php");







    if($_GET["action"] == "subscribe")

    {

    $fp = fopen("$db_file", "r");

    $file_text = fread($fp, 999999);

    fclose($fp);



    $subscribers = explode(",",$file_text);

    foreach($subscribers as $subscriber)

    {

    if($subscriber == $_GET["email"])

    {

    $result = 1;

    break;

    }

    else

    {

    $result = 0;

    }

    }



    if($result == 1)

    {

    print "The email you provided alreay exists. <a href='javascript:history.back(-1)'>please try again</a>";

    }

    else

    {

    $fp = fopen("$db_file", "a+");

    fwrite($fp, $_GET["email"] . ",");

    fclose($fp);

    print "<font face=arial size=2 color=blue>congratulations, your have successfully subscribed to the mailing list</font>";

    }

    }

    print "

    <form action='includethis.php'>

    <input type='text' name='email' size='26' value='Enter your email' onfocus=\"this.value=''\">

    <br>

    <input type='submit' value='Subscribe'>

    <input type='hidden' name='action' value='subscribe'>

    </form>

    ";

    ?>

    where and how could i implement the css into the file im only beginner at this and learning sorry to be a pain but when i try to add into it just messes it up and stops it working

    orted it i just added this code in and did the trick at the top of the php page

    <style>

    *{ margin:0; padding:0;}

    body{ font:100% normal Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; background:#000000; position: "centre";}

    </style>
