  1. Hi Bruce! Thanks for checking. It's strange because that one file works but some of the others don't. I see two that are hosted on other sites, so I'll have to pull my music from them. But why would that command work for one Mp3 but not all of them? It is really frustrating getting screwed over like this. For a little Indie artist like me every paid download counts. When I see 14K downloads that were given without my permission that could have been a sale it's pretty devastating and a little deflating also. I don't understand why people think that this is OK to do. Thanks so much for the help.
  2. Hi OJB! Thank you for that workaround using .htaccess! This is what I put in my file >## Begin Redirect For File Stealers RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(.+\.)?natalie-brown\.com/ [NC] RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$ RewriteRule .*\.(mp3)$ http://www.natalie-brown.com/i-appreciate-you.html [L] ## End Redirect For File Stealers It's funny, now when I got to that site I referenced above, my songs stream but when I go to download my virus alerts go off like mad. Can you test above and go to the first song "Run Away" that shows up in that link I gave you and see if you can stream or download it? Thanks for the help. I hope this does the trick Nat
  3. Hi Marge, Sorry this is also happening to you. It's so very frustrating! I hope someone has an answer. Some of the sites I've been able to block or re-direct to a nice message that encourages people to buy instead of download for free. But this one site is just eluding me in terms of blocking it. Take care, Nat
  4. Hi Everyone! I'm pulling my hair out dealing with thieves! LOL Over Christmas I found out that there are a lot of websites that somehow have crawled my site and are now offering my original music for free or paid downloads on their site as well as streaming and I am not involved in this process, however they are stealing my site bandwidth to do their deeds. They are essentially stealing my music and making profit off of it without my consent in some cases, in others they are just offering free downloads served up on my hosting dime! I was in touch with tech and we seem to have been able to block some of them, but there is one site offering multiple free downloads of my music that I can't seem to block. I have used the IP deny manager to deny their IP and I went back to test and I can still stream and download my music. I've emailed the site to ask to have my music taken off, but surprise, surprise I don't get a reply. I used whois.sc to find out who the site is but they seem to have a private server and I can't contact an abuse department. The villain in question is: http://www.mp3-codes.com/library/search/natalie+brown They seem to be doing this to thousands of artists. How can I block them from doing this or is it not possible to do so? And I know some artist give away their music and there are advocates of this way to promote. I do give some away in certain circumstances. I just think it's horrible for me, the artist who spent the time, money, brain power and creativity to create the intellectual property, to not be a part of that decision process. Thanks to anyone who can help me stop the pilfering! Thanks, Nat
  5. Hi click! Ok I re-added the subdomains back in and did the re-direction to the main domain that way. Everything works perfectly now! Thank you for all the help and for teaching me some new things!!!
  6. Hi OJB, Ok a little progress. I took out the subdomain redirects and the other redirects are working, except: h##p://graphics.mbstia.com/content/view/139/113/ h##p://mbstia.com/helpful-info/77-5-ways-to-save-money-when-working-with-a-web-designer Obviously it is because this has the subdomain address configurations, so not sure how to fix that. Unfortunately, this is not working to re-direct the subdomains: ##Subdomain Re-Directs Begin RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^myspace\.mbstia\.com RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^graphics\.mbstia\.com RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^retouch\.mbstia\.com RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^webdesign\.mbstia\.com RewriteRule ^(.*)$ h##p://mbstia.com/$1 [L,R=301] ##Re-Directs End I am getting a "Cannot Find Server" error with this in place. I did see in cPanel a way to put back in the subdomain and do a re-direct there. Would that be a wiser route to take than doing this in .htaccess? Thank you so much for your help!
  7. Hi OJB! Thanks for that suggestion. I did try it with a little luck, no internal server errors. Here are the actual redirects ##Re-Directs Begin Redirect 301 /web-design/myspace-custom-profiles.html h##p://www.mbstia.com/ Redirect 301 h##://myspace.mbstia.com h##p://www.mbstia.com/ Redirect 301 h##p://graphics.mbstia.com h##p://www.mbstia.com/ Redirect 301 h##p://retouch.mbstia.com h##p://www.mbstia.com/ Redirect 301 h##p://webdesign.mbstia.com h##p://www.mbstia.com/ Redirect 301 /web-site-design/5-ways-to-save-money-when-working-with-a-graphic-designer.html h##p://www.mbstia.com/helpful-info/77-5-ways-to-save-money-when-working-with-a-web-designer Redirect 301 h##p://graphics.mbstia.com/content/view/139/113/ h##p://mbstia.com/helpful-info/77-5-ways-to-save-money-when-working-with-a-web-designer ##Re-Directs End For most links I get an error 404 For the last one, I get this: Not Found The requested URL /content/view/139/113/ was not found on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. For the ones that were the subdomains are pointing me to a page that says: Great Success ! Apache is working on your cPanel® and WHM™ Server I went into cPanel and deleted the subdomains. The redirects are not working at all. I am really not sure why this would be. I thought I wrote them correctly? Any insight would be awesome.
  8. Hi! Just took down an old site that had a bunch of subdomains and created a new site with everything on one domain. I'm having some trouble with my .htaccess redirect. I thought that if I used this it would work: ##Re-Directs Begin Redirect 301 /web-design/myspace-custom-profiles.html http://www.example.com/ Redirect 301 /web-design/myspace -custom-profiles.html http://www.example.com/ Redirect 301 http://myspace.example.com http://www.example.com/ Redirect 301 http://graphics.example.com http://www.example.com/ Redirect 301 http://retouch.example.com http://www.example.com/ Redirect 301 http://webdesign.example.com http://www.example.com/ Redirect 302 /web-design/myspace -custom-profiles.html http://www.example.com Redirect 301 /web-site-design/5-ways-to-save-money-when-working-with-a-graphic-designer.html http://www.example.com/helpful-info/77-5-w...-a-web-designer Redirect 301 http://graphics.example.com/content/view/139/113/ http://example.com/helpful-info/77-5-ways-...-a-web-designer ##Re-Directs End With this I am getting internal server errors. So I googled a bit and came up with this post: http://www.webweaver.nu/html-tips/web-redirection.shtml And I tried this: Redirect 301 / http://www.example.com/ But when I do this and try the old URLs I get this: Any idea how I can properly redirect the old links to the main domain now that everything lives there? Thanks!
  9. Thank you Andy! I am so glad you have been enjoying the CD! All these songs are my little babies, and it's nice to see them so well received! Nat
  10. I'm using Comcast as my ISP, as stated above. I use Port 26 to send. I do think Comcast blocks it, but as Bob said... email is routed thru the server. Since she is using TCH servers w/ Outlook then it should work. I use Outlook 2007 w/ mail routed thru the TCH servers with the settings I stated in my above post and mail works for me no problem. I'm just trying to get secure mail to work, now that I can not get to function, but that's a separate post!
  11. I'm using Comcast as my ISP, but my mail goes thru the TCH mailservers. You might consider using the setup that TCH recommends here: http://www.totalchoicehosting.com/help/e_mailpage.htm Just FYI I am using Outlook 2007 and using port 110 for incoming and Port 26 for outgoing. But as I said, I am using the TCH mail servers. Hope you sort it. Comcast is a bit hopeless these days I must admit.
  12. Thanks Bruce, that's great to know. I appreciate the help, as always!
  13. Interesting to note that a "spam" box was not created for some of the accounts set up. Is there a reason why this would happen?
  14. Hi Bruce!!! I went into cPanel > Webmail and launched Horde... I do not see it in any of the dropdowns. See screenshot. Perhaps I'm not looking in the right place? I wanted to test SA and check what it is catching as spam before setting it to discard email directly. Thanks! NOTE: OK I see if I log in to each account seperately there is a spam box. I thought it would be in the main account box. So it's in each individual account.
  15. I am just trying to use SpamAssassin and I was wondering where the heck the actual spam box is? I see the "Clear Spam Box" button, but I don't want to press it first without seeing what is in there. Thanks~
  16. I was just thinking of Don today. Does anyone know how his family is doing?
  17. Hi JTD... yeah I know... but it takes time to do that and I was hoping for something like Adobe BRidge... that I can scroll thru. Ah well..... Thanks for the input!
  18. Hi All! I did a search on Google w/ poor results... Does anyone know of a program that allows you to preview an HTML template? For example, I have a few hundred templates on a disk and it's such a pain for me to open each one in Dreamweaver to preview it... I wish there were some sort of browser similar to Adobe Bridge where I can quickly preview what the template looks like even if I have no screenshot. Does such a thing even exist? If so... link me baybeee! Thanks!
  19. Thank you so much! Hey Andy... I got your reply... and I see you down there... hope you are well. Have a super day.... I'm off to bed! LOL
  20. Ah OK, that's very interesting. I thought for some reason that the form script I bought would already have that all programmed into it. I think I'll tell the developer about this as I'm sure I'm not the first to encounter it. Thanks so much for explaining it to me. At least now I know how to do an HTML array. Thanks!
  21. Wow, that worked! Can you explain to me why it worked?
  22. I sorted out the refresh deal. I used one sort of JS to do it that didn't seem to include the JS code. It had worked in FF, but there was a conflict in IE, so I ended up using the following and including the JS in the page to solve the issue: ><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <head> <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="4;url=http://www.freshconsultants.com" target="_top"> <title>MBS Survey</title> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"> <script LANGUAGE="javascript"> <!-- if (top.location != location) top.location.href = location.href; //---> </SCRIPT> Still can't figure out the list multiples issue tho!
  23. Hi All! I'm designing an HTML form and I am trying to make it so that a user can select multiple answers in a drop down list. The code I have is this: > <tr valign="top"> <td width="70%" align="right">14.) FRESH Consultants offers Mobile Bookkeeping Services to small businesses. In your opinion, which of these services would help in the growth of your business if contracted to FRESH Consultants? <span class="style3">(Please CTRL or CMD and click on each one that applies to you)</span></td> <td width="40%" align="left"><SELECT NAME="MBS-Services-of-Interest" MULTIPLE SIZE=6 id="MBS-Services-of-Interest"> <option selected="selected">Select all that apply <option value="Bookkeeping & Accounting Services">Bookkeeping & Accounting Services <option value="Payroll Services">Payroll Services <option value="Tax Services">Tax Services <option value="Training Services">Training Services <option value="Financial Analysis">Financial Analysis <option value="Advisory Services">Advisory Services </SELECT> </td> </tr> When the form is sent, I am only getting ONE result back: Mbs Services Of Interest: Training Services I have no idea why this is happening. I tried to also use checkboxes, but same thing, only one item checked is being delivered to me. Any ideas why it's not sending multiple selections? Also, another little thing... I have set the thanks.php to refresh to the home page after form submission. It works in Firefox, but not in IE7? Here is the code I used: ><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <head> <meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="3; URL=java script:window.open('http://www[dot]domainname[dot]com','_top');"> <title>MBS Survey</title> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"> Why would it refresh in FF but not in IE? Livesite is here: freshconsultants[dot]com Thanks for any insight you may have!
  24. I'll definitely check it out. I need at least 30-50GB a month as I send uncompressed audio files back and forth all the time and they can be rather large! Oh and does it work with Vonage. i like Vonage b/c I can take my number w/ me anywhere I go in the US/Canada/UK etc w/ the little USB thingy they have. It's very cool! --------------------------- just checked... Not available in the area yet unfortunately.
  25. Yes I notice they only come with 4 ports, I wish they made them with more. I am going to be getting 2 Vonage lines as well so there will be 2 wired PCs, 2 Vonage phones and then the wireless laptop. I am sure I'll figure it all out. Yes I think renting will be better. I am not going to be there for more than 6 months, so it makes no sense to buy one since I'll be very likely moving out of that area after that. FIOS is Verizon right? Is it as fast as Comcast and can I get as much data transfer as they allow (250GB a month). Thanks again!
