    File display Problem

    Lea84
      Hi having trouble uploading my web site for the first time.

      I have uploaded through dreamweaver CS3 and the files seem to be on my web site when I go to it but in file format. Plus my html scripts are not displaying on the page. Any Ideas as to where I went wrong?

      Please respond have been trying get an answer for ages and cant seem to find one!

              What is the name of your "Home" page file?

                Rename this: My gaming mate simple design.html

                to this: index.html

                Then clean up the 480 some odd errors before expecting the JavaScript
                to work. For instance, it seems mighty strange to have JavaScript
                inside the <noscript> element.

                  No? OK, I see you've uploaded more files.
                  Now rename this Home page.html to index.html

                  You still have errors to contend with.

                  Also, I recommend avoiding file names with spaces in them. You could
                  use underscore or dash to separate the words, something like:

                  be-aware.html instead of Be Aware.html

                  And, wow, 160 characters for a jpeg file name? Just curious, but why?

                    Thank You for the suggestion I will try them!

                    I just saved the jpegs from the web and didn't think to change the name, would this make a difference?

                      It won't make a difference to how they're displayed.

                      It might make a difference to the copyright owners - if you haven't
                      obtained permission to use them.

                        Hi, Still having trouble with the Java Scripts. I was putting them in through the non script because the script button doesn't work, it wont display anything. But if I use the non script it displays until I upload it? I did Validate it!
                        Thank You for your help!

                            Whichever page you want to appear automatically when a visitor goes to
                            directly to www.mygamingmate.com should be named index.html. There's a
                            slight chance that it may need to be named default.htm, but since
                            you're using an Apache server, I bet it's index.html.

                              (I'm looking at Home page.html)

                              The w3c validator shows 69 errors:
                              http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mygamingma
                              te.com%2FHome%2520page.html

                              Some of that should be fixed by changing line 2 in your code from

                              <html xmlns=" http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><style type="text/css">
                              to
                              <html xmlns=" http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

                              The only reference to JavaScript I see on that page doesn't actually
                              have any JavaScript to execute. You've simply wrapped a link in JS
                              script/noscript sections. Change this:

                              <td width="18%" height="205" scope="row"><script
                              type="text/javascript">
                              <a style="text-decoration: none;" href=" http://banner.32vegas.com/cgi-
                              bin/redir.cgi?member=Deeanne&profile=32v320da03&lang=da" ><img
                              src=" http://banner.32vegas.com/cgi-
                              bin/banner.cgi?member=Deeanne&profile=32v320da03" width=100 alt= ""
                              border="0"></a>
                              </script><noscript>
                              <div align="center"><a style="text-decoration: none;"
                              href=" http://banner.32vegas.com/cgi-
                              bin/redir.cgi?member=Deeanne&profile=32v320da03&lang=da" > <img
                              src=" http://banner.32vegas.com/cgi-
                              bin/banner.cgi?member=Deeanne&profile=32v320da03" width=100 alt= ""
                              border="0"></a> </div>
                              </noscript></td>

                              to:

                              <td width="18%" height="205" scope="row">
                              <a style="text-decoration: none;"
                              href=" http://banner.32vegas.com/cgi-
                              bin/redir.cgi?member=Deeanne&profile=32v320da03&lang=da" ><img
                              src=" http://banner.32vegas.com/cgi-
                              bin/banner.cgi?member=Deeanne&profile=32v320da03" width="100" alt= ""
                              border="0"></a>
                              </td>

                              (Note the quotes I added to the width parameter).

                              This is the basic structure for using inline JavaScript.

                              <script type="text/javascript">
                              (Actual JavaScript code goes here)
                              </script>
                              <noscript>
                              (put what you want people to see here if they
                              don't have a JavaScript enabled browser)
                              </noscript>

                              That should help get you started.

                                Hi so I figured out the problem with the Java scripts, it was a tag problem because they are external codes.

                                <script src="xxx.js"> instead of <script type="text/javascript">

                                But now my changes wont display only the old files. How do I fix this?

                                Thank You for your help! I couldn't have gotton this far without you!!!
