Where did the template come from for the 60's era? I'd like to be able to use it for the class reunion letter that I'm mailing out to the alumni of my class. What software was used to create so I can edit it to my specs. How do I fix the pixels so it is clear and not blurry. I think it'll be a nice touch when mailing out the letters along with reunion details. I want to get the ball rolling by getting the word out...

That was made by one of our people, Eric Donaldson. It was made for the web, so the native resolution is 72 dpi. I could send you the original, but it wouldn't be any better quality than what you see on your site already. Just hit your print screen key and then paste the image into Adobe Photoshop or any other graphics application. Slice and dice at will to fit your letter.

I messed up my home page when I went into change design. The way it looks right now is not correct at the top where the template is. Some of the template is messed up and not everything is what it should be. The color is fine on the left. Duh..
Don't know what I did but it's a doozy.

Use the Print Screen button on your computer and then past that into photo shop and you'll have more control over the way it pastes in - it will be a snapshot of the page that you can then edit around in Photoshop.

It looks fine to me, so I'm assuming you fixed whatever it was. If you press your print screen key while looking at your home page, you can then paste the image into any graphics package. Even Word. You'd probably need to crop things off a little bit so it's how you want it to look. I could send you an image, but you'd have to do the exact same thing. I'd just hit print screen and then use/crop the resulting image as desired. To paste into Photoshop:

1) Press print screen while viewing your page
2) Open Photoshop and hit File, New, Ok.
3) Then just press control V to paste your image

Is it possible to imbed the playlist from Cary-Grove Community High School

to our website?

Thanks for any help.

Yes, if they're open to giving you their embed code it is, anyway. If they change anything on their Playlist in the future it would also change on yours though. You can of course also go out to and create a playlist of your own with the same songs.

So I ask the administrator of their website for their "embed code"? Will s/he know what that means? Does s/he email me some source code and I paste it on my homepage?

I am having a blast with all this. Spending way too much time. But probably less than you.....

I'd only hope you're spending less time than me... Smile

Yes, the Admin of that site should know what you mean, as they created that code at and embedded it themselves. Yes, emailing it to you would work perfectly.

You're welcome to use ours. Go to It took me most of Sunday to create that list, so enjoy!
Here's the code for it:

> value="never"> value="transparent"> value="
playlist=59393025&t=1236273822&wid=os" width="435"
height="270" name="mp3player" wmode="transparent"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash" border="0"/>

.jpg" border="0" alt="Get a playlist!"/>
.jpg" border="0" alt="Standalone player"/>
g" border="0" alt="Get Ringtones"/>

Copy and paste into your homepage or whatever page you want it on.

My homepage is still messed up. If you look at "Change Design" page; it's missing the templates. Is there some way that you can fix it or reset it? Also the pic of our school is gone and President Kennedy is missing as well.
Because of my change design page messup; it's also affect my "In Memory" Page as well. The photos are now missing... HELLLP!

Try upgrading your browser to the latest version. Also reboot your computer. Can you duplicate this in any other browser? Everything on your page is fine... Can you find one person on any other computer who confirms they're seeing what you're describing too? Unfortunately I can't fix what I can't see, I believe you're having some type of local computer or browser issue.

How do I put this play list into my home page?

Saturday, March 14, 2009 at 4:26 PM - Response #15

Is there a way for the classmates to actually have to click on the music before it starts? So many do not want the music to automatically play (You know they are at work and such Smile But for those who would like the music, that would be great.) I wanted to figure this out before I tried to put a playlist on. Thanks.

Autoplay is an option you set directly at

Is your playlist listed under your name on the Playlist site? I am trying to start from the beginning and there are tons of playlists to search through. I'd like to go directly to yours. Thanks.
