I have a website that I started using a bought template, I deleted all of the content except the navigation buttons. The problem now is that there are ALOT of broken links and coding errors. Is there a site that will show me what the correct code should be?
Lots of people here use the W3c Validator: http://validator.w3.org/
It won't tell you what the correct code is but it will tell you what the problem is. On the HTML page there's an option to run HTML tidy which can sort some things out but again, it will be up to you to study the code to work out what changed.
in addition to Martin's hint: the first thing I saw in your source code is this here: file:///C|/Documents, what means the path to your image "POLLEN BOX (3).jpg" is pointing to an image on your local hard drive which nobody can see except you. Please change it to the correct path.
I'll try to looked further and come back.
please don't use spaces in folders/filenames. Spaces get converted %20 which leads to problems. Yo could use underscores or dashes instead, if you want to separate the terms. Among other things, your page can better found by search engines and/or even worse, servers will think that the name has ended and your website can't be found.
excuse my short messages, that I'm so slowly coming to the grips of your question, because at the moment I can't see "The problem now is that there are ALOT of broken links and coding errors." All the links work perfectly in my IE8. Please name the broken links in question.
... I had a look after your "Jake fishing CROP.jpg". When I'm on the right track, you use it in its original size, DW has to "downsample" it to width="272" height="340". Please let this do a picture processing program and use it resized.
Did you try martins hint?
when I use the link checker in DW there are tons of broken links and errors. I would like to clean that up but do not know how.
As far as Jake fishing pic, would that be why in some browsers it moves to the right instead of staying in its place?
could it be that we always talked at cross purposes. Could it be that there is a difference between your published website www.cfaai.com and your directory with all the files on your PC/harddisk? For example (if it's the right path) I should find this http://www.cfaai.com/images/barb16.png on your website.
If yes please load it all up to your server, only so it's possible for me to analyze.
Defining a site is an important first step in DW whenever you create a website.
let's go back to your initial comments: "I have a website that I started using a bought template ...". The question is where and how are this or the modified and optimized files stored. I for my part use this scheme:
what means, you have to plan ahead how the file structure should look like.
I use htdocs on my harddisk, because my offline reader searches the files there. I naturally load up the different files into the directories with their significant names.
Please have a look again at my comments on 12, esp. "Could it be that there is a difference between your published website, ..." and "load it all up to your server, only so it's possible for me to analyze". Let me convince you from that! And don't fear anything about our comments, no matter how your modified website looks like.
Before uploading you could try to copy ally your files now stored in your Temp directory into the correct directory (such as analog):
I prefer an external FTP program. The difficulties with which you have to fight encourage me in this opinion, not least because we always search for experts, we don't charge a "jack of all trades".
For this reason, to manage, for example, several websites or to upload my files and sometimes for the opposite way, for a necessary download from my server or to use a "a site-wide synch", I'm using FileZilla. It simply looks easier for me to keep track of all operations precisely and generate or reflect easily the desired tree structure.
Above all, FileZilla has a feature (translation from my German FileZilla) called "compare file list". Here it's possible to use file size or modification time as a criterion. There is also the possibility to "hide identical files", so that only these files which you want to redact remain visible.
And even if it means you have to install a new program, I am convinced that there is an advantage. Here is the link to get it and where you can read informations about how it works:
Mac: Mac OS X
Of course, you also need all the access data to reach your server.
Europe, Middle East and Africa
