  1. Ok, from what I see in your code you are using the short version for your links.

    <a href="index.html" onmouseover="image1.src='images/tabhome-m.gif';"



    I assume you are doing this to get your web pages to work both online and from your hard drive. This is fine except in several cases where it will not work because of moving around. You use the short version to conserve on space(typed characters) and this will work as long as you remain in the same location. The files, html and images and folders are located right where you are and the complete path to them is not needed.


    But once you change locations, they cannot be found. This can be a difficult bridge for you to cross at this point. I know you have been round and round trying to design your site to work a certain way and had to start redesigning all over again...well you may need to redesign again :dance:.


    OR...just duplicate your files in each subdomain. This way is a lot of extra work and a lot of duplicated files and remembering file name schemes and a lot of wasted disk space, on and on.


    Not sure what else to tell you, maybe someone will come in with a better idea on what you can do.

  2. I had a feeling it would work in any browser. :goof:


    I agree its an annoying "bug" and I imagine it has something to do with your older version of IE. You have three choices. You can try and tell Invision about it and see if they can upgrade their BB software. You can complain to uncle Billy and see if he'll fix it (fat chance).


    Or you can use this little work around. I think you are stuck my friend. :goof:

  3. Boojum, its a little more work and typing but it works. Instead of using the button for italics just manually type in the code before and after the text.


    the "code" is [command], thats brackets before and after and "I" to start and "/I" to end italics.


    BoB - (manually typed)

  4. Boojum, it sounds like a simple "coding" problem and the simple answer is to change the code in error to make it work. The correct code should have one instance of the santa-cruz not two.


    Now if it were me, I would open up my text editor, find the lines that contain the bad code and correct it to say "santa-cruz" once, save and check the page.


    I don't know what you are using so I am leaving all those instructions out. I hand code most of my pages and use a simple text editor. You may be using a different text editor or a Full blown WYSIWYG Web editor program, I don't know.


    Does this help? Or do you need help on how to edited the code?

  5. Thanks for the approval Dick, I appreciate it. :goof:


    I wasn't going to stop helping here, I've been doing this type of volunteer help for a long time, so I am afraid you are stuck with me for awhile. Well at least a year, but from the way things look so far we'll keep hosting as long as you'll have us.

  6. Boojum, the way these boards work is for ANYONE to be able to help. When you qualify your questions with these "experienced webmaster or admin " statements it scares the regular members away and they sometimes have the answers you maybe looking for.


    Now with that out of the way. :goof:


    Let me think about this some more and do you have an example to show us so we can see what you are saying? A picture is worth a thousand words I hear and it will probably help here.


    I need to drive back to work, lunch is over but I also have been reading from there...shhh. I'll check back in and we'll see if we can get you some answers.

  7. Thanks, although I should note that when I first created the subdomains, they did in fact contain the ".squort.com". Ergo, I found it odd that on re-creation they did not.
    What you may have done is created the subdomain using the full name "santa-cruz.squort.com" instead of just "santa-cruz". This may have confused everything by making it santa-cruz.squort.com.squort.com. When you then looked in cpanel you saw santa-cruz.squort.com and the last .squort.com did not display.


    Why it finally dropped off I can not explain. :goof:


    2. Now, can some experienced webmaster or admin please help me


    Now I have been trying to ignore these comments of yours thinking you are unaware of the meaning. I did not answer this note because of the similar comments you made to me previously, but no one answered this one so I jumped in. If you think I am not qualified I will stop replying to you, just let me know.

  8. Boojum, the domain ".squort.com" is assumed in cpanel and you will not see it. This is normal. You name your subdomain "santa-cruz" and you will see a folder called "santa-cruz". You do not name it "santa-cruz.squort.com" anywhere. On your hard drive it will also be called "santa-cruz".


    Sorry I can't answer question 2, I am having a difficult time following exactly what you are describing.



  9. Sounds interesting and I used to love beta testing...but I probably fail a couple criteria. Not sure I have the domain, but I do have a few sub-domains I am going the set up. And I have not used sql, but my friend who is helping with some of our sites does.


    Let me think about some more.

  10. Both of you go to thet web site and it will tell you your IP. Both go again in a day or two and see if the IP changes. If its the same you have a static IP. Be sure to reboot the computers and the cable modems and routers if you have them.


    If either of you are using a Dialup connection like AOL or MSN then you have a random IP each time you log on and what you want to do will not work.

  11. Thomas, if you go to the website Jim gave you, your IP will appear at the top of that page.


    This will be the IP that others see from outside.


    The command I gave you will give you the IP that you are using on XP. If you are on a home network which uses a router you will see a different IP. Routers use "natting" which assigns a different IP to all the computers connected to an internal network. The external IP assigned to you by your ISP is used by the router. This external IP is the one you are looking for.


    Now you can have either a "static" IP or a "random" IP and this is determined by your ISP. A dialup connection from an ISP is always a random IP, a cable or DSL connection is usually static but not always. Check with your ISP ISP to find out which one you have.

  12. I'm on the other side of the spectrum Rob. I started in this business back in the 70's working mainframes for Control Data Corporation fresh out of High School. In the 90's I switched to the PC side and was laid off after 29 years when my Y2K project completed. All I had was OJT and I was up against young kids with degrees and all sorts of paper certs. They were willing to work for half my pay and I had a wife and two teenagers to feed.


    But I still love the business and I'll tough it out a couple more years hopefully :rolleyes:

  13. There was a smiley face at the end of my last note Bill...relax. You gave me the explanation and I appreciate it. I work in a NOC and I am monitoring servers as we speak and know that servers can be UP but services are down.

  14. Did anyone else just experience the Forums here going down? I was sitting here reading and clicked on a post to read and got a page not found, I tried several others and got the same results. When I tried to go to the Forum home page it also was not found. The TCH Home was working as was some of my sites. I then checked Server Status and saw two red lights on SSL Server for Server 1 and Server 28.


    This only lasted for about 10 minutes and it started about 11:59AM EST.


    I then checked the server status reports and nothing is listed and they still show 100% uptime.


    Any comments?
