Uploading jpg's
Mood:  irritated
Topic: Image Questions
ARRG. I am pulling my hair trying to understand what I am doing wrong. I have created another website, www.angelfire.com/film2/miskell, which I use to let my family know whats going on. I used the same methods, and files, and creating ways that I am using now to creat this other one. Except the images are not there! When I upload an image, I get no error message. on the contrary...it says "files uploaded successfully". But I cannot view them. I just get the little red x. what am I doing wrong here? it seems that no new files that I creat will upload correctly. Is there something going on at angelfire? I have tried to dummy down the size, and make the quality less, and still nothing. but I can load up previously made designs and they are fine. Why all of a sudden? HELP!

photo album pages
Topic: Image Questions
I am having problems with my photo album pages. I cannot upload images or create new pages. This happened months ago after Angelfire restructured the photo album pages. Customer support has not been able to help me. Any suggestions on how to resolve this?

Could not update my web site
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: FrontPage
Thanks for the advice. When I checked, I discovered that not only were my FP extensions not functioning properly, my FrontPage was disabled.
Here's what I did:

Went to “My account” and scrolled down to “Preferences.” That's when I discovered “Microsoft FrontPage disabled.” I Clicked on “enable” and then went on to successfully update my site.

How did my FP get disabled? I have NO idea! But...oh, well, the important thing is, my site is finally updated. Thanks all.

Mood:  don't ask
Topic: FrontPage
For nearly 2 weeks I've been trying to update my site, www.angelfire.com/sk3/shirleyken, also known as www.shirleykennedy.com. No problems in the past, but now get the message:
Angelfire - Error 403
Username: Password: err-or! er-ror - 403! Forbidden

It also tells me my site does not exist (it does) and it says, 'URL "SK3" is not contained within a FP web.'

I use FrontPage with the extensions.

I have e-mailed the "Help" section five times and have yet to receive an answer. Any advice?

Buttons do not appear
I didn't see this problem in the "common problems" section, so hopefully this isn't something that's been asked a million times before. When I log into my site, and go to the Webshell, the File buttons (view, edit, rename, move, duplicate, delete) and the Directories buttons (open, rename, delete) do not show up; all I see are the words "Files" and "Directories" and blank space to the right. The large pink button to log out is also not visible. Up until a few days ago, however, the functionality of these buttons was still there, so I could hover my cursor over the spot where each button should have appeared, and "blindly" click to perform the task. As of a few days ago, however, that functionality is completely gone. I've tried logging in with two different browsers (Netscape 7.2 and Internet Explorer 6.0) and have done the basics like clearing my cache, lowering the browser's security level, rebooting, etc., to no avail. I haven't changed anything on my machine recently, nor have I installed any new software. I'm fairly certain this has to do with the configuration of my PC, and not my Angelfire site itself, as I am able to log in and see everything from my work computer. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Lycos Systran Translation
Although this does nor deal specifically with Angelfire, I was wondering if there is some
problem with the following URL:
Am using this service on quite a few Angelfire pages
and it seems to be 'down' for the past couple of days.
Perhaps they have changed the URL??

Announcing: Angelfire Planet
Topic: News
I'm pleased to announce Angelfire's newest feature: Angelfire Planet. This is an extremely new thing for us and we're extremely proud of what we put together so far.

So, what is Planet?

It's not a social network, or a blog tool, or a photo album, or a slideshow builder, or a web page builder. But, it is a neat place where you can express yourself, connect with your circle of friends, share pictures and stories, or rate the pictures and stories of others. It's really not like anything we've built before.

Angelfire Planet is both a part of Angelfire as a whole and separate. It's a bit of a shift. That isn't to say that Angelfire will focus less on traditional web publishing, but now we also have something different.

As some of Angelfire's best community members, I encourage you to check it out and provide your comments. You are early-adopters, it only became available today, so your feedback is doubly appreciated.

Also: Your disk quotas and bandwidth alotments don't count on Planet, so you can build as much as you want, or post as many photos as you want, without worrying about it.

I encourage you to sign up and take the new features for a spin. The team is extremely proud of the work that we've done and are eager to show it off.

Please feel free to leave comments here with your feedback.

Why don't my images appear?
Mood:  happy
Topic: Image Questions
Hey there
I've just created a new webpage and everything is going great except when it comes to images.
First of all, there was no directory called /images, so I created one and uploaded some pictures and they're all there, all good.
I've typed in images/mypicture1 into the space to make the picture my main image but when I preview it, an X marks the spot.
I've managed to bring an image up using the images provided eg http:// etc but my own photos don't seem to work
Do the images have to be a certain size?
Can they be jpegs? Do they have to be gifs only?

I've read the other posts but nothing has helped.:o(

Can you please help me???

Angelfire Maintenance Complete
Topic: News
Last night's Angelfire maintenance was completed successfully and all Angelfire features were switched over to the new facility by 5:00 AM with most features done by 3:00. Given DNS propagation time, everyone should now be seeing the new site. (You must be, if you're reading this.)

From past experience, I know that some ISPs do not properly notice DNS changes in a timely fashion and so may have switched over sometime later during the day, but they should all be set now. (I'm sure that someone, someplace will have one that has a broken cache, but that should be an extreme exception. If things aren't working right for you, please try restarting your computer. If that doesn't help, please post here and we can help you investigate.)

Although blogs and albums were a bit slower than normal today, we have finished database tuning and you should notice a pretty substancial performance improvement. I notice just looking at the club that viewing comments is quite a bit faster for me than it used to be. (Some of that, of course, will be because I'm physically closer to the machines. But the underlying hardware is also significantly faster.)

If you see any problems, please post here and I'll make sure they get raised to the team.
