I have finally produced my first ever home page, I have now added it to my host but when I go the website it appears broken. All this is very new to me and it is the first time I have used ftp or used a host or bought a domain so I am not sure where I am going wrong.
When I open the index.html from my computer with firefox it all looks how I want it. I have then copied all the files across to my host but when I go to the site it looks as though the index.html file has completley changed and none of the files are linking either to the style sheet or to images.
Donboe - Thanks for that I’ll add it to my list of image sites, by free I assume you just mean just royalty free or do you mean totally free. I am trying to get the images for this site totally free (ie in terms of both free from royalty and initial payment - if that makes sense) I got an offer from Bigstock for five free credits for totally free images which I am going to be using.
rguy84 - Cheers for that, much appreciated, there is another thread I set up where I have asked for input about my coding issues as I have cobbled a lot of it together together myself and that is one of the things that has been mentioned.
Glad to hear it! One more thing, though: if, for any reason, those fonts don’t load, the browser will revert to its own default font. Since your font is sans-serif, you might want to add sans-serif to the end of you font family declarations, as otherwise the default might be a serif font. (That’s what was happening for me before you got the fonts working.)
Woohoo I am a div. I had put the folder somewhere else then when I realised and put it back I left it in uppercase. Who would have thought uppercase/lowercase would cause so much heartache, that is one lesson definitely learnt. Thanks again Ralph it is now 100% how I want it (well other than all my text is now in lowercase but I think I’ll go to bed and sort that in the morning)
Ooh just thought about that, it has been worrying me as well, my brain didn’t click in. Could I get into trouble for the fact they have been a up a day or so, the ones i have chosen I wil be getting them officially anyway as I have a five image credit from Bigstockphoto.
Aye I have noticed a few notherners on ere, salt of the earth!
Firstly, rename Index.html to index.html. It’s best to avoid capital letters in urls altogether, but in the case of the index file, it’s critical. An though you’ve called you images folder /Images/, you are referencing it with /images/ in your files. Again, the names have to match exactly.
