GuestGear users - now with less spam
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: News

Howdy - For those of you who have an HTML Gear GuestGear, you may notice that we've automatically removed a number of spam comments from you guestbook. Thanks to the fine work by JP and others here at Angelfire, we were able to successfully identify and remove the spam without deleting legit comments.

Much harder to do than it sounds, given all of the permutations - but well figured and tested. That said, if you find that some legit comments have been deleted from your GuestGear, please file a ticket with the Help Desk. So far, we've had no false positives reported, but we'll address any that are brought to our attention.

Thanks much and picture problem
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: HTML Questions

   Thanks so much... The turtle link I spoke of is working now. I don't know what happened--I didn't touch it--but it was down for awhile but is fine now. And thanks for noticing my meta tags. That fixed another problem I was having before I asked about it!  No idea how the ?lpt;<...>? got there as I simply copied and pasted the tags, but...There they were.

   Now I've got one more thing...On my home page I have a picture of a zebra... That shows up fine on a desktop computer, but when a friend tried to view it on her sidekick she said she only saw the box where the pic was supposed to be and the label about the Quagga that I had under it--there was no pic of a zebra there. She said she had never seen anything like that before because her sidekick usually shows web pages and pictures just fine. So I was wondering if this is normal because it's a cell phone with a tiny screen or if there's some adjustment I need to make so the pic will show up on all computers?

What's going on with my site???!
Mood:  irritated
Topic: HTML Questions

   It seems like my links have suddenly stopped working. For example, when I go to my home page and then click on the Turtle care, advice, resources, & psychology link (exact wording?), I get the angel fire 404 error. I know it is linked to correctly, the file is still there, and it was working fine up to today. What happened? I have not changed that part of my index.html file...

   Also I added the "My contact info" link to a couple other pages (the turtle care page which is currently down and the books page) and I think they're properly linked to, but not sure as they aren't working either...

Blog Comments Posting Problem

I created a blog today to attach to my website. After making the first post, I tried to post a comment in the comments section, just to test that feature and make sure it was working. But nothing I click on in the Comments box will do anything. When I click on the Comments link, the box does come up on the screen, and the comment can be entered into the box.  But clicking on either the "Preview" or "Submit" button does nothing. The comment can't be previewed or posted. Only the Cancel button works (the comment box goes away).

I tried testing the Comments function both logged in and not logged in (I want non-Angelfire members to be able to post comments), but neither worked.

Does anybody know what might cause this kind of problem?

(I tried to edit the post to note that the comment section isn't working yet, but the site then eliminated the whole post.)

linking to files in a different folder
Mood:  lazy
Topic: HTML Questions
I know the basics of linking to a file, but got stuck on this one...I keep missing little things *wink* Anyway, I have a sounds subfolder and a books subfolder in my main turtlestruebiz folder. I want to have a file inside my books subfolder link to a file inside my sounds subfolder..... I know how to link to a file in a subfolder inside the folder the file is in, but how do I make the link go up one level? For example, instead of going from turtlestruebiz to books (in which case I'd link to it as books/file.html) I need to go from books to turtlestruebiz and over to a different subfolder. How would I write that?

Background sounds
Mood:  energetic
Topic: HTML Questions

Allright, I've uploaded all my sound files into their own "sounds" folder as .wav files. I pasted the code

<EMBED SRC="tune.mid" HIDDEN="True" loop="1">
<BGSOUND SRC="tune.mid" loop="1">

into my webpage as instructed, and it's working, but it isn't exactly what I want. Apparently this is code for background music, but as background music can drown out the sound of a screen reader reading my web page to blind people, I would never use this on my site. What I want is for a short clip of sound to play once or twice as the page loads. For example, I have a picture of a Quagga zebra on my home page. I want people visiting my home page to hear the sound of a zebra's whinny once or twice, and then it'd be silent. Can I do that?

Changing title, load sounds, & making a site discoverable
Mood:  hungry
Topic: HTML Questions
Hi again, I've got 3 questions here. First, I've been trying to change the title at the top of my main page a little, but it isn't showing up? Why is that? Can I not change the title once I choose one? I'm using the advanced editor on that page. Secondly, can I have it play a sound when you load the page? I'm sure it is possible but don't know the code to add a sound file... Probably pretty similar to adding an image... I've also been wanting to add a border from grsites, but they really don't describe their things much and I can't see the preview, so I've given up on that as I don't know which ones I want. Anyway, the third question is, how do I know my mom isn't the only person reading my site? How do I know it's discoverable...Can I add keywords to it or something so it'll come up on Google? I'm finally ready for the public to see it. Oh, and I almost forgot, at the bottom of my index page I have a contact me link...Is there a quick way to add that to all my pages, or do I have to link to that file by hand on every page?

Almost got it! Label image; save background from document
Mood:  celebratory
Topic: HTML Questions
Allright! Thanks for that webmonkey link--that is a great resource! I feel like I'm learning a new language, only it's a bit quicker than that <smile>...I've got my pages layout just as I want it...But I got 2 kinks still left over that webmonkey didn't really answer, or else I missed it.......   For example, I have that picture of a Quagga zebra on my home page and I added a label to it. I assumed you just typed the label after the <> with the image code in it, and it worked--the label is there--but it's in the wrong place. I wanted the image centered (which I am told it is) and the label centered right at the bottom of the image, right below that square (and I am told it's on the right--as I can't see I don't know this for sure, though). So how do I put the label where I want it, or is it already there? And the second kink is the fancy background.... I think this is the third time I brought this up--maybe no one really knows the answer and I should stick with the plain black background I have on most of my pages (I know how to do that...), but on my books pages (My books, Dreampony Series, Pony no. 3: The pair, for example) I originally had them in a Word document with a fancy background which I want to keep (not really an image, just  fancy shading and borders...). But when I used Word to convert it into a webpage document, it put a new paragraph thing at the end of each line and messed up the formatting! Someone said I should  just copy and paste the text into notepad and type up the code myself, but as I don't exactly know the color schemes in the background since I can't see it I can't code it and if I copy and paste I would lose that... Any ideas? At the very least, would you be willing to look at the source of these pages and tell me what code I can delete? I mean, some people tell me Word has a way of adding alot of unnecessary code, so deleting it would reduce the file size and save space...But as I'm not very experienced yet, I don't know what parts are deletable. I do know how to change the line breaks though, so don't worry about the format part. Still nothing? Then I guess I ought to be satisfied with the plain black background--just let me know. Thanks!

No customer service
Mood:  irritated
Now Playing: No response from support tickets
On July 16 my credit card was charged the monthly fee for my website at www.angelfire.com/mn/nn. On July 28, my credit card was charged an additional $2 by Lycos and my paid website was changed to free status the same day, with 20meg storage and their popup ads. My Amazon.com commissions since August 1st are ZERO!!! No reply YET to any of my support tickets. The Lycos phone number listed on my credit card statement for July goes to a recording that says Lycos Customer Service doesn't accept phone calls. My website still shows as free as of today with no explanation or even response of any kind from Angelfire or Lycos. If you have a free site and are thinking of upgrading to a paid site at Angelfire or Tripod, think again. /mn/nn/ has been my site at Angelfire since 1999 and had been a paid site since February, 2002. It will be interesting to see if my credit card is charged the monthly charge on August 16. Where is everybody in Customer Service? Why don't they ever reply to support tickets? I am paying for a paid site that shows as free!!!

advanced mode; preserving backgrounds
Mood:  quizzical
Topic: HTML Questions
Someone recommended that I switch to advanced mode in order to add "sub"titles to my groups of link lists... I must say though that honestly I'm a bit afraid of the advanced mode. I don't know how to add a main image to it...And I am picky about my colors. I'm building my site so it will be easy for a visually-impaired person to see, so I have specific background, text, visited link, etc colors. And I like having one main picture on each page. I don't know all that code... Is there another way? I'm also wondering if I can save backgrounds from documents. For example, I have a poem in a Word document and it has a background and everything the way I want it. But when I saved it to html format, it showed a blank line between each line and that's not how I want it to be. Someone suggested that I just put the text to a notepad file, but then I wouldn't have the background, would I? And I'd like to add a label to the main picture...For example, I'd like to put the words "Quagga zebra, now extinct" just under the picture of a zebra on my homepage. That way blind people would know what the picture is, and people would know this is not a striped horse... Would someone be willing to guide me through the advanced mode? I have a very limited knowledge of code.
