    Unhappy HELP! I Think Iíve Killed My Website!

    I am the new owner of a Get Paid to Read website called 1CashMail.com. I bought it through an eBay auction. I have no prior experience with owning or operating a website and have very basic knowledge of HTML (from writing eBay descriptions). In order to get familiar with the site and with using the control panel (cPanel X), I was opening different pages with Edit File and doing simple things such as correcting spelling and grammar errors, then saving the page. Someone suggested it would be easier if I made changes using Html Editor so I opened my Home Page with Html Editor, simply changed an ďsĒ to ď$Ē, saved the changes and AHHHH!!! Iíve lost several things from my Home Page. I donít have the slightest idea what Iíve lost (well, I know Iíve lost headings and arrows but donít have any clue what the coding was for them) and donít have any idea how to get them back. Iíve got a couple of these <> where there were none before and a strange looking ¬ in another place. I bought the site May 14th, killed it May 19th and have been trying to get help with fixing the problem ever since. I really want to get this site up and running and would appreciate any and all help you experts can give me! This is what I currently have:

    With that huge mess above that you've posted I don't think I'll be looking through it. Is that the whole page? I don't see any <body> or <html> tags in there.

    For the images that are not showing you are missing the quotes around the file name...

    Thanks, PalmerB. I changed the </td /> to </td> but it didn't change the look of the site. I appreciate you trying to help, though.

    Actually, the file name above is for a rotating banner which is showing. It is part of another document in my File Manager. I believe it is called header.html (but I may be wrong about that).

    It's all the code for this particular HTML document page. The Home Page is divided into several HTML documents or, to put it another way, saved as several pages of HTML coding in File manager - header.html, login.html and footer.html to name three.

    Sorry it's so hard to read. Someone told me to post it just that way. Perhaps line breaks will help you read it better.

    I know this:

    <table class="text" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="2" width="100%" border="0"><tbody><tr><td><img height="28" src="http://1cashmail.com/images/welcome.gif" width="147" /></td></tr>

    is one problem since the word "WELCOME" is not showing up. Because all I did was update in Html Editor and the gif is elsewhere, I don't think the problem is with the gif.

    Again, thanks for any help you can give me.

    The code on that page is a mess, and I don't mean just visually. There's a <head> tag but no closing </head> tag.

    There's a second <HTML> tag near the bottom of the page.

    There's no doctype -- browsers will just have to make their best guess about how to parse the code.

    There's a mix of xml and html code: Lots of <br> but also lots of <br />. Many attributes are quoted but also many are unquoted. And doesn't XML want all lower-case tags and attributes? In regular HTML it doesn't matter, but in XML it does, and there's a mix of uppercase and lowercase tags: <TR> and <tr>, etc.

    There are at least 3 <table> tags that aren't closed properly, or are overlapping other tags.

    There are WAY too many <strong> and <font> tags for a page that uses css.

    There's stuff like this:
    </td />

    and this:
    <a href=http://www.freewebs.com/jaxfan11>
    <p> <img Src='http://www.1cashmail.com/paidmail/images/cpbanner1.gif' border=0/></p>
    </a>

    And this:
    </td>
    <table class="text" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="2" width="100%" border="0">
    <tbody>
    <tr>
    <td><img height="28" src="http://1cashmail.com/images/welcome.gif" width="147" /></td>
    </tr>

    You can't have a close </td> immediately followed by a <table>. No wonder the Welcome isn't showing up.

    Do you have a backup of this page from before you started editing it?

    Thanks so much for all your help; unfortunately, I don't have a clue what it all means. When I originally said I "have very basic knowledge of HTML," I meant I know how to bold, italicize, center, and increase and decrease font size all within an eBay description - and that's about it!

    Unfortunately, no, there is no backup of the page. I was too dumb to know I should make a backup and the young man I bought the site from thought he had a backup but doesn't.

    I guess what I need to know now is where I can find someone to fix this mess and about how much should it cost?

    Thanks again for all your help,
    Kathy

    good image:
    http://www.1cashmail.com/paidmail/site/images/sc.gif
    missing image:
    http://1cashmail.com/images/welcome.gif

    when I look in the directory /paidmail/site/images/ then that missing "welcome.gif" is also there.
    So you need to put the correct path to the images to get them on the screen.

    YES! Thank you, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I fixed each of the paths and everything looks perfect again. Well, at least the way it did before I used HTML Editor. And, I made a back-up copy after each correction, so I've learned that lesson. I just can't tell you how happy I am or thank you enough!

    Best wishes,
    Kathy
