    Can't tell 100% from images, but seeing as there is no styling in #2, I would say you didn't upload the CSS document or the path is wrong.  If you want a more conclusive answer you will need to post a link.

    You have not uploaded your layout.css file to the webserver, thus, no formating. It should be here: http://www.ciesladesign.com/CSS/layout.css

    yes , you didn't upload the .css file , or it is blank , also put this on the .css style file and delete from the main HTML

     

     

    <style type="text/css">

    body {

    background-color: #FFF;

    }

    it's kinda ... weird to see if you have an attached CSS file
    well if this isn't the problem you could publish the html source and CSS file , so we can see

    Each page has a different CSS file?

    well ... normally you use a single CSS file for every page , unless you want to change the graphic appearance (well , at least i do like this) (but maybe you need this)
    is simple , whit the HTML pages , you need to upload also the CSS folder (if in CSS there are some images for background) , remember to put ".." before "/"
    use a FTP program , connect to your server and see if there is hte .css file in the css folder

    Uploading it once is all you need to do, and if you upload a page that is linked to it, with uploading of dependent files enabled in PREFERENCES, it will be uploaded automatically.

    Upload the HTML file once with dependent files enabled. That's all you need to do. This will upload both the HTML file and the linked CSS file as well as both the Spry files.

    When prompted did you approve the upload of dependent files?

     

    Anyhow, this file -

     

    http://ciesladesign.com/CSS/layout.css

     

    is not found - but that's where this code -

     

    <link href="CSS/layout.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

     

    is telling the browser to look for it, so either you haven't uploaded the file, or it's not being uploaded where that link says to look.

     

    When you look at your local site files, where do you find "layout.css"?

    Go to Edit > Preferences > Site > Dependant Files.

    • prompt on get/check out
    • prompt on put/check in
    • Save.

    Your folder name is "css".  Your link expects it to be "CSS". Fix that.

     

    The CSS file is waiting for your fix -

    change it in the code. If you are on an Apache webserver, it is case sensative so a folder called css is different than a folder called CSS.
