    new to sitepoint and need help with finding diver-circle image

    I am new at web designing and I bought the book "Building Your Own Web Site The Right Way, Using HTML & CSS, I think about four or five years ago (more or less). I am on chapter 2, at the place where you insert the diver-circle image. I went to your web homepage, scrolled down and clicked "Code Archive", clicked "open", clicked the folder "spbook-HTML3-76a6eb9", then chapter 2. The HTML document was in the folder but no images. Also I noticed that when I clicked "code archives" the below links is on the top of yor web page,
    Books and Build Own Website the Right Way using HTML & CSS is accessible, but not Down the Code Archive

    Hi lgwalker. Welcome to the forums.

    I moved your post to the XHTML forum. It may be that the code archives for the current version of the book have changed, but in the ones I have, the file is in /chapter2/website_files/final_version_for_chapter/ (and a few other folders in that chapter). If you can't find it, I can post it here, too.

    Edit:

    I just checked the current files, and the image is in the same place (maybe I had the current ones anyway. The download page is here:

    http://www.sitepoint.com/books/html3/code.php

    Once the zip file is downloaded, double click to open it, and you should see folders inside with all the code bits and pieces. Is that not working for you?

    New at web-design and I need directions

    Hi
    I am very, very new at web design. I bought the book "Build Your Own Web Site The Right Way I guess about four or five years ago. So far, this book has been really simple to understand. I am on chapter 2 now, and I have working on the web site "BubbleUnder.com. I need to get the image called divers-cirle.jpg for this particular project. I scrolled down the web site to a box called "Code Archives". I clicked the Code Archives box; I click open; the files download; I click Allow on the Microsoft Windows Explorer box, because a message comes up saying a website wants to open web content using this program on your computer; I click the file folder spbooks-HTML3 76a6eb9 . Because I am in chapter 2, I click chapter 2; and the only folders in chapter 2 the following:

    examples
    website_files
    index.html

    The only folder with images are:
    full_size
    resized_400_pixels


    And diver-circle.jpg is not in either of the two folders

    What am I doing wrong, Ralph.m in the expert forum type me a link to where the images were. I clicked the link and it takes me back to the web page where I began with the "Code Archives". I must be looking in the wrong places. I'm sorry for being such a cluts, but if you don't know, it is what it is, YOU JUST DON'T KNOW!!. If you will, can you give me step-by-step directions to where the images for chapter 2 is located? I am usually great at following step by steps as long as nothing is omitted.

    That's weird, because in website_files there are lots of other folders, including "final_version_for_chapter", which has the image in it. Do you see that folder? You are most of the way there! You just need to be able to access the folders inside website_files.

    Cool! Well, good luck with the book. Learning web design is a fun journey indeed. Don't hesitate to come back again if you have more questions.

    like I said earlier, I found the image and now I am having difficulties importing it into notepad. I tried to copy & paste but it didn't work. As stated earlier, I really am good at following step-by-step directions as long as nothing is omitted. So if you would please tell me step-by-step how to get the picture from website_files folder to my notepad BubbleUnder.com website, I will be really happy.

    OK, I don't have the book with me right now, but what you need to do, essentially, is to work out where you want to store your image file. E.g. let's say it's in the same folder as the page it appears in. So, for example, you might have a folder on your computer containing these two files:

    diver-circle.jpg
    index.html

    The index.html file is the page you want the image to appear on. To make it appear on the page, you have to link to it in your page code, like so:

    Code:
    <img src="diver-circle.jpg" alt="A diver circle image">
    Then, when you double click on the index.html file, it will open in your browser, and you will see the image on screen.

    This isn't the exact code as in the book, but as I say, I don't have it with me now. I recommend you read through Chapter 2 again, because I'm sure it describes what to do here.
