Uploading MP3s
Topic: HTML Questions

I'd like to know how to upload MP3 files to my Angelfire site.

I'm not looking for just a player, I want to upload individual songs so someone could listen to and/or download them.

Files is webshell not displaying

Topic: HTML Questions

Hi all,

When I open a file in webshell, some of them cannot be edited.  It opens with a line of nonsense words. (using advanced) . Is this happening to anyone else and if so is there a remedy?  Have contacted 'help desk', but only an automated response.

Argh. How to delete index.html
Mood:  irritated
Topic: HTML Questions

Ref back to my post of 15 Apr 2009.

 Tried reloading the index.html file.  Still nothing but advertising.

Tried moving on to other suggestions--and it will not let me delete index.html.  Per the error message, I can rename another file to be my index.html---but not delete the first one.


 I'm going to try deleting the whole damn page again and reloading.

If it doesn't let me do that, I don't know how I'll try the suggestion of loading the pages through Angelfire tools.

 I am dumber than a box of rocks.  I can't even deal with a simple ftp program.

JavaScript trouble
Topic: HTML Questions

I am having problems with the following JavaScript code included in my page http://qwerty-2009.angelfire.com/js-prime.html .


a=new Array;ttt=new Array;

a[0]="Algorithm ... ";ttt[0]=0;


a[3]="or ... ";ttt[3]=2;






Here tab(n) is a string valued function defined in the head which gives a number of blank spaces.

I find that the first element of the array a is output correctly, but on subsequent passes of the "for" loop the value output is "undefined". No matter what i change the lower limit of the "for" loop to within the range 0..3, the first value is correctly written while the rest are given as "undefined".

FTP or file name error
Topic: HTML Questions

Newbie, pardon the questions.  Have uploaded a simple index.html page and two images to my website--with apparent success.  However, when I go to my website through Angelfire, it just shows the basic "welcome to angelfire here's your page and nothing's on it".  

 The cartoon penguin greeting.  Not the practice page I'd hoped for.

 I used ClassicFTP for Macs.  Unlike prior attempts last year on the PC, this worked.  Angelfire and the account were recognized and found.

 Should the default file have been named index.html, or should I have used another name.

Suggestions?  Thanks in advance,

asn, from faire-play

Why did my index file transfer to my other angelfire web page?
Mood:  down
Topic: HTML Questions

Can anyone help me understand what I did to make my index file from one angelfire web site override to my other angelfire web site?

I had both index files open on 2 TABS in internet explorer; I thought it was a convenient way to view both index files without having to log-off and log-in for each web site.

However, something must have been set in motion because all of a sudden my index files were identical and there was no way to go back.

 I had to do over the second web page HTML etc.

I would love to understand what I actually did to cause this problem.

One thing for sure - I will NEVER open both index files on tabs again.

The really weird thing was that I could access the photos etc. even though my directory did not have the photos - the photos were in the original directory in the other web page.???

Hope I'm describing this correctly - very confusing to me. Thanks for your help anyone?

Help! I Can't get .swf to play on page
Mood:  quizzical
Topic: HTML Questions

My html works offline (I've inserted the swf object) but the object doesn't appear when accessed through Angelfire. I've 'ftp'ed the html and swf files to the correct locations (I'm fairly certain). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

IE ad displacement issue (Lycos Customer Service response)
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: HTML Questions
Over the weekend, some Angelfire membership sites experienced problems due to a glitch with one of our advertiser’s code which serves the Ad Banners.  The issue caused the site content to not display within the page.

We were able to resolve the issue early Monday morning and our member sites should now be displaying correctly within the Internet Explorer Browser.   Sites were working OK within Firefox, the issue was contained to Internet Explorer Browsers viewing only.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused some of our members and their visitors.

Please feel free to visit our help site at http://help.lycos.com to submit a membership support ticket (or email support@support.lycos.com) for further assistance should your membership site continue to experience a display issue.

Why am I having trouble loading the website?
Topic: HTML Questions
I have a website which I've been able to edit, add information, and logon to many times. Recently, after editing, and previewing, the website will not open when the web address is clicked on. The preview is perfect but when I try to bring the website up on the Internet it just opens to the green background. I'm on a Mac but that shouldn't change anything. The web address is http://icc-baltimore.angelfire.com. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Simple question about HTML Forms--can someone help?
Mood:  quizzical
Now Playing: www.angelfire.com/scifi/artbyjohn
Topic: HTML Questions

Since I can't get any help from the tech support people, I was hoping someone who knows their HTML could help me!

I've  run a website here for 6 years for my comic book publishing company.   We used to have a form that collected information from our visitors, and when they hit the submit button, it would thank them for their comments, and the results of their form would be sent to my e-mail address.

This form doesn't work anymore---information is never e-mailed to me.   Can someone tell me what sort of command WOULD send me an e-mail containing the forms filled out by my visitors?

Below is the script I've been using successfully for the past 2 years, but it just stopped functioning recently, no matter how how many times I try to make it work.   Any help would be appreciated!

<FORM ACTION="/bin/script_library/form_handler_file" METHOD=POST>

    What's your name?

My Angelfire Counter Doesn't Count Everyone
Mood:  not sure
Now Playing: My Angelfire Counter Doesn't Count Everyone
Topic: HTML Questions

I installed a counter on my site (http://bluezone111.angelfire.com) but it doesn't count everyone who visits the site. My counter goes up 2 but my page views total 9. I read the Help Forums and it says it counts people who only go to the front page and includes HTML gear (ie: my counter) but I still get the same problem.

Any ideas why my hit counter only counts some people but not everyone the page views get?? I clicked on my own site and it counts but not everyone who visits. Why is that??
