a favor from all of you

Hi. I think that I can identify a couple of quick corrections to your page.


Here is the code directly from your page.

<img name="splashimage" src="images/splashimage.jpg" width="1024" height="768" border="0" usemap="#m_splashimage" alt=""><map name="m_splashimage">

<area shape="rect" coords="31,34,927,230" href="http://www.supasoulsista.com/home"'>http://www.supasoulsista.com/home" title="ENTER" alt="ENTER" >

First the image does not appear. Its source is in the code as images/splashimage.jpg, however if you try to go directly to that image, it cannot be found. Did you upload the splashimage.jpg to the public_html/images/ directory of your site? If so, double check the case sensitivity. The file on the server must be named in all lowercase for your code to see it (or the code must be changed to reflect the file name).


Second, your link to home:

must be changed to include the file extension for the page called home. So if that page is called home.htm, then your code must reflect that.htm file extension.


However, I cannot seem to find a page on your site called either home.htm or home.html. So is that page uploaded to your public_html directory? If so, then check the case sensitivity on it as well and adjust your code to include the file extension properly.

Yeah, even you (KW) would admit that what I discovered was primer stuff, right? Since I think that you actually point out the same material repeatedly on another forum we frequent. :blink: Tell me often enough and eventually it'll sink in.


I love the Alphabits commercial they play on PBS. It goes something like:


Celebrating the 26 letters that make thousands of words that create millions of stories.


...I'm starting to put the letters into words...

Give a man a TV dinner he will eat for a night, give him a Stove, he will eat for life. Correct? Here is what I have learned since being in the hosting biz.


If I dont know... I pay someone to do it


If I think I know... I pay someone to do it.


If I know and its easier to pay someone.. I pay someone to do it.


Moral of this story is. You dont need to know HTML to build web pages, and you for sure dont need to know HTML to give EXCELLENT tech support. Lianna proved this every day.


Lianna dont spend time learning HTML, pay someone. lol

A few problems your experiencing:


A) Your images are in the image folder

:D Your CSS needed minor alteration as a few ";" where left out. This stops that property from working.

C) Your site does not have a "home" page. In the coding below, I have changed it to be home.htm


Intrestingly, if you put http://www.supasoulsista.com/? the page displays right, but it has the right code. This makes me wonder if you have two different "Index" and "index" files on the go?


Anyway, here is a slightly altered coding for you

Near the end of your code the part I have bolded seems to be causing a problem in jumping to the Home page. You either need to change it to "http://www.etc..." or just have "/home". I jumped into the home directory and looked there at a little. If the page is mainly going to be a blog I would highly recommend looking into installing and using Movable Type. You can read more about it at www.movabletype.com. I have several blogs set up on my site using it and it is very easy to use once you get it up and running. The install can be intimidating but you can get help on here if you need it.


Good luck. Look forward to seeing the site once you get it up and running.

Another little comment supasoulsista:


You are redefining the size of an image that is 794 pixels by 248 pixels to be 1024 x 768 (width="1024" height="768"). This is why the image is distorted.


Hint: keep your page less then 780 pixels wide, a lot of viewers are still using 800 x 600 resolution. Why 780 and not 800 you ask … Because you have to account for such things as menu bars, scroll bars and possible tool bars.


Hope this helps sista.
