..try ask the owner of the site to email the host and see if the host will do it for you/your site.

Many hosts will ask for your rewrite-mod and they will do it for you.

In your original/theme, tables are set to 100% width .
When there is no content in the centre _block that could (but not necessary) just happen - stretching all the way across the browser.

It should be all in the theme. Play with the width of the tables and blocks, or try reorder the blocks and see if there is any change in behaviour.
what ever you do, test it on several browsers. mainly IE, FF, netscape.

y'll find quite a few good SW out there by making an indepth search.
Most of these software are paid. Reason is simple n obvious.
Very few others are GPL /GNU

This one http://www.citrusdb.org is pretty excellent.
for free- you can do much with it.

It is not a XOOPS module and you will need to have a little extra knowledge with MySQL on how to install it.

make sure that every thing you have in your css is ended with a ;
example:
.mytstyle {
#000000; background: #E1E6E2; margin: 0; padding: 0; font-size: 11px;
}

Also maybe you can add some style for font for the body of your style. -it is generally the first line for the body.

check your stylesheet for the ; extra space, extra blank line remove
comments should be properly inside /*comment*/ or //

just try it

If you don't want the global search not to search a particular module.

What you have to do is deactivate the search from the db.

#1. access your db by your favourite method
#2. you will see a table named 'your -table-prefix_modules'. -The table is holding all your modules that you have installed.
click on it!!
#3. select the particular module that you dont want to be searched. Once you click on it, you will see several sort of titles and names etc..
what you need, next to "HASSEARCH" (it is written in lowercase i think) swap that number 1 with a 0(ZERO) and click go
That is it.
Now your module has got no search

2nd Method try:
in your sql that is in your module/folder on your server
find 'hassearch' replace the 1 with a 0
and click update.

When choosing you provider (if you're not hosting your site yourself)
It is worth asking your future provider if they backup their DATABASE daily.
Most of them does. Your safety is theirs also.
For a small inferior fee they're willing to provide you with a copy of your DB .
Some providers, gives you the options in their package, -if you want a copy of your DB daily or weekly monthly or not at all.

This is like a race against cancer. We know how bad it is, we can control it. But a SOLUTION! by the time you find any, they have are immune.
The few who are engage in such activities, are most probably advanced internet users.- they are determine to make your task even more difficult.

Then comes the time to ask oneself a few questions.

If your site is not a site with many new daily registrations.
Do I open my site for registration by email or do I set registration to be approve by moderators first?(if I have the option)
What do I get or loose if I allow AVATARS upload?
And when I am surfing on the internet, -do I submit my website to any unknown website that claim to be a web portal.
There are thousand of these website around asking you to submit your link, they are even claiming to have 20millions hits monthly , They can send you 50,000 hits daily. Yeah the fakes hits!

My site is selling cars in UK or In France. Or My site is providing a service to internet users in Argentina only;
do I need to submit my website to an Asian portal?
Can I have in my .htacces to deny all users from Asia. I don't need users/visitors from Asia or from Australia or vice versa .

other example: The service I am providing is selling dogs. Why should I submit my website to place where they are selling pharmatical stuffs. These are just few things to take into consideration when running a website and you probably know.

But what method these advance users are employing to spam your site successfully?!
The silent surf! (many of you should know that) To surf silently you dont even need to be a crazy hacker or the best programer. Anyone can use it without any speciale knowledge.

The advanced users and they have done their homework before they came to drive you crazy daily.
They are using ' proxy'. They can never be traced down. You'll hit a dead end.
The datas they are submitting or retrieving from or to your website are bouncing in-between computers encrypted or maybe thru.. some old boxes with full of viruses in Asia somewhere.
The proxy system and onion system hides their identity and they may never be caught.

This system is used a lot to spy on your competition or for other sort of investigation or by dissident. Unfortunately some clever ones uses it for porno stuffs and illegal activities.
With the proxy, they are probably next door to you or even greeting you good morning everyday! but the IP DNS or what ever will show that the users is a thousands miles away. And every time, the very same user will be some where else.

How can you catch such a malicious person or ban that kind of person from your entering your site?
Virtually impossibility? take the ip or rage of IP and ban.- that is okay.

- But take for one moment, if I don't need users from one particular country, maybe best way is it to consider to deny the whole country from entering your site.
- No, there is no point to submit a website to just any portal that is asking for your link.

So what are really the precaution to take to reduce their activities and damage? Finding a remedyis difficult, but try reduce the damage.
note:
#1.Always have a good webanalyser.
#2. These are not remedies, but just some o fmy personal thoughts, and things that came down my way in yesteryears.
