  1. I've got a website about my bean collection called A Bean Collectors Window http://abeancollectorswindow.com. The site is hosted on Godaddy. When I first get on the site the home or index page loads but the header image does not load with the page. It's a photo of many different colorful beans arranged in a rectangle. When I then right click the page and chose "view page source" there is no image tag in the div marked id="header" Then when I click on the following page A-Ce the page loads normally with the header image and the page source does show the image tag. Then when i go back and click on home the page then loads with the header image and now the "view page source" also shows the image tag. How does something like that happen and what do I do to get this page to once again load normally the first time. I have also taken all the code for the home page and put it into a brand new page and uploaded it to the server but this does not fix my problem.

    Images On Website

    Thanks Andrea for your repy. I finally pined down the problem with images in the images folder. It was the .jpg extensions that were in upper case, and a couple of images had the first letter in the title that was also in upper case. So once those were changed the images loaded. This little detail was probably in one of the video tutorials I purcahsed from Killersites two years ago, but either I didn't pay close enough attention to that detail or had forgotten.

    Images On Website

    Shortly after I posted on this topic I discovered that one of my image files called images had the letter i capitalized and my img src tags used a small i. So I changed the file on the server and got most of my images to load. However I have a page called photo album which references it's images from a file called images3 and not all of those images will load and I can't figure out why. Is it posible that the browsers are having a snit about something with this file? I have had this happen before where I have replaced a file from a website copy where for example the browsers aren't displaying the boarders around images, but when I replace that page with a copy from a copy of the website everything is working again. It's like something becomes corrupt with a copy of one of the pages and the browsers are in a snit about something in the page. Anyway I still can't figure out why not all the images on my photo album page are not loading. I would appreciate some ideas. www.abeancollectorswindow.com

    Images On Website

    I hand coded a simple website. Nothing fancy no java script. Just html and css. I loaded the website to a server Friday and only a few of the images will load when you connect to the site with your browser. Why do just a few of the images load and not all the rest of them? I called support and guy talking to me told me that's something I have to analyze myself. I checked the css page and found two brackets that were wrong. One extra bracket at the end of a selector, and one at the start of a selector was typed backwards. I fixed those. Validated my html pages and fixed all those problems. I checked all my img src tags and they have their proper brackets and quotation marks. Nothing seems wrong with any of the alt="tags". All the images will load with any browser on my desktop. All the text loads. I suppose servers can be different though. Does anyone have any ideas about my missing images? The site address is www.abeancollectorswindow.com
  5. Just thought I would post some additonal comments and let everyone know how I came out in this postioning game of mine on my website design. First thank you Designer 77 for your suggestions. I visited the YUI website. I didn't really understand it so I took Ben's suggestion of not having to define heights and widths of my divs. However I did define the widths in percentages. I think this was the magic bullet for me. Then I was able to float everything into postion. Sometimes you have to remove a div in your html page and refloat another div to get it out of the way then put your previously removed div back into your html page in a different order, and refloat it into postion. Kinda like playing a shell game. When you play with it for a while, and see how it works it is alot of fun especially when you finally meet with success. I don't have anymore negative values to get anything into postion. I put everything inside the body of my page in a wrapper. Gave the wrapper a width of 78% and a left and right margin of auto. Also some top, and bottom margin. Now I have a neat centered page, and can put some sort of background image in the body to surround the wrapped page. I also noticed before when I was using fixed values for my div widths and negative values for positoning. My web pages seemed to hug the left side of the viewing area in Windows 7, and didn't fill out the screen. Now the pages are centered in Win 7, and fill out the viewing area. The pages also look nearly identical in different browsers. Little differences but slight. Also working on Andrea's suggestions trying to eliminate redundant stuff. Thanks everyone it's been a big help.
  6. I want to thank you both Andrea, and Falkencreative for taking a look at my pages. I am going to try applying what you told me, and try to gain more understanding by the way those things affect my pages. I tried doing some reading on overflow, and the wrapper but still don't understand either of those yet, and how they affect your pages. Andrea told me I could set the color styling for my navigation list words in my css under #navigation. I tried #navigation ul li { property: value; } and also #navigation, ul, li { property: value; } and also #navigation { color: 00ffff; } but I didn't get any results so for the time being I left the class in my html li tags call out the color. All the background colors on the divs are there only so I could see where they were, and how they were positioned. Eventually all the background color on the divs will be gone. I tried seeing how far I could get building these pages with what I've learned in about a month, but definitely I need a ton more knowledge especially on positioning. I'm sure I haven't even scratched the surface, but having fun with this, and will keep at it.
  7. I'm a newbie coder, and have been at this for about 4 weeks. I'm practising on a radio station website I would like to get up, and running eventually. Everything seems to be positioned alright in Firefox, but when I look at what I have so far in IE, Opera, and Safari, many of the divs move out of position, and two jpegs I have don't read in the three mentioned browsers. Is there some coding that will render everything the same in these browsers as Firefox, or can someone find something wrong in the coding. I have left all the background-colors in the divs for now so I could see where they were all at. Maybe someone would be so kind as to take a look, and see what you can see. I'll be looking forward to hear what someone's findings are. Thanks ! unsigned.htmlroot.cssindex.htmldonate.htmlartists.htmlaboutus.html

    What I am wondering if you upload updated files to your server using FTP. Won't the older files on your server overwrite just like your text editor files do on your local drive when you resave things? Is it necessary to download files, make changes, then upload again? Do the files on your local drive disappear when you upload to your server? I don't have a website on a server yet, but I've wondered about this.

    IE and Opera Issue

    Hi Everyone ! I've just been trying to learn html, and css. Have been building a rudimentary website for an internet radio station I hope to start someday . My pages reside on my desktop for the moment. What I have so far when viewed through Safari, and Firefox looks the same. Opera doesn't read my img src tags, or my links. Positioning of things is a little off. IE7 that I have loaded also doesn't read my img src tags or links. Positioning is terrible. Things are scattered all over the place, as if IE doesn't read margins in my css file. I wonder if I'm doing something wrong in my coding. Do You Know if anyone has ever made a list of fixes for Opera or IE anywhere. I'm very new at this, and not a code junky, but would love to know more. Below is my css, and first page html. The css validates, but the Html has 3 errors, and I can't figure out what the validator is seeing. <html> <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> <head> <meta name="generator" content="HTML Tidy for Linux (vers 6 November 2007), see www.w3.org"> <link href="root.css.txt" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"> <title>Rock Tales - Rock & Roll Music Radio</title> </head> <!--TOP OF THE PAGE Courthouse - top Header - Gazebo --> <div id="topleftdiv"> <img src="courthouse.jpg; alt="Old Court House (on the Left) In The Woodstock, Illinois Square" </div> <div id="topmid_div"> <h1>" Rock Tales "<br /><h4>~ Rock & Roll Radio ~</h4></h1> </div> <div id="toprightdiv"> <img src="gazebo.jpg; alt="Gazebo (on the right) In The Woodstock, Illinois Square.

  10. Hi Everybody. I'm New to Webdesign, But I wouldn't call it that yet for me. Have been studying HTML and CSS for about 2 weeks and have been having fun with it already. Hope to build my own radio station website. The community looks like it is made up of friendly and helpful members. Hope I can learn all I need to know to reach my goal. Wishing everyone Health, Happiness, and great Web ...
