Topic: HTML Questions

In Google account webmaster tools- when I go to 'crawl errors' (I have over 100 angelefire pages) I find almost half of my pages have a '404 not found' in a URL consisting of my 'root directory/memberembedded'.

When I Google the term 'memberembedded extension' I can find nothing that explains how to recognize it within my html and think it might be the ad script that angelfire embeds in their free pages.

If so- I guess there's no way to correct those crawl errors but would appreciate someone confirming or not this assumption.

Still Waiting for the "Strange Characters" Fix
Mood:  irritated
Topic: HTML Questions

My readers are telling me that Angelfire is still converting my quotation marks and hypehns to strange characters. May I have an update on the fix please.

 An example is https://www.angelfire.com/space2/light11/fc/ascension1.html 

Thank you,

Webshell Corrupts File
Mood:  irritated
Now Playing: Webshell Corrupts My Files
Topic: HTML Questions

Since the redesign of Angelfire, when I save a file, the webshell converts my quotation marks and hyphens to code like this: "Merging into Completeness" becomes “Merging into Completeness,â€Â

Is anyone else having the same problem? Does anyone know how I can fix it?

Green Background
Mood:  irritated
Topic: HTML Questions

I have several pages that I edit frequently. These pages are formatted, I.E. Months of the Year, so that I do not have to retype everything everytime. I position my page to edit with the area in the middle of my screen.

Problem 1: As soon as I am in the correct spot to add information, the screen goes to the green background losing where I want to do my editing.

Problem 2: When I do start to edit, the screen jumps to the bottom line in the edit area causing me to lose where I am and I am unable to "easily" move to the next line to add information. An example: I am adding bowling scores that were bowled last night. I enter the last name on one line, the first name on line 2, score bowled on line 3, date on line 4 and the bowling center on line 5. Whith this jumping around it slows me down and if I am not paying close attention, I will enter the new information in the wrong place.

The above example can be found on my webshell (il/beloitbowling)under the mhs.html directory. This is very annoying and very distracting when I have several different areas in the same directory that I am working on.

Angelfire loading issues on FireFox
Topic: HTML Questions



I have begun to notice some layout issues with the new Angelfire and Firefox for Linux.

The layout appears to be broken and spread out.  Tried Konqurer with the same results.


I have screenshots of the Angelfire homepage using FF:



It also affected one of my sites, which I also have a copy of it on Tripod, and it works fine on there.


The site on Tripod:



What it looks like on Angelfire:



Id this just a browser issue, or is there something else going on??

(This flavor of Linux wont really let me update FF to its latest.) 


Now Angelfire looks ok on Google Chrome, but the TNSC site above is still broken only on Angelfire, it worked perfectly on AF before the change, and has only been broken today - I have not made any changes to the source on my end.  The source is also cited properly as XHTML 1.0.

Now Playing: smart quote problem?
Topic: HTML Questions

I have a problem.  I have had my website through Angelfire for over 11 years, and I've done the same thing for that time.  I write my posting in Word (it uses smart quotes, etc.) send it to my mailing lists and then add necessary code and post it in my webshell. 

I went in to the webshell today, shocked that everything is new but willing to learn, and edited two of my pages.  When I opened those to edit in the webshell, all the 'smart quotes' could not be read and when I saved the page with my changes, all quotes and apostrophes and other symbols changed to other gobble-de-gook. 

The rest of my pages are ok, but as soon as I have to open them to do some editing, I'm going to lose my formatting.  I already have to fix three pages, and I'll have to access several more by the end of the week.  I'd rather not have to change my system.  Is there some way of making the webshell recognize my smart quotes and other auto text?

Never Before ...
Mood:  irritated
Topic: HTML Questions


Can somebody help me here.  I've had an angelfire account and a web site for 10 years! I've been adding files and building the website in the webshell in html for a long time. I do this on a weekly basis. Never any problems or worries. This week I LOST six days of data! Anything I had entered or saved during these past six days was gone Monday morning. I called tech support for angelfire and they had no idea or suggestions. I was hoping it was a system issue and my files would be restored. I've re-entered the information and everything seems to be okay and back to normal --- so far. Very scary, and it cost me about 2 hours of additional work. Anybody else experience this or know what may have gone wrong?

Unable to publish my new site
Mood:  hungry
Now Playing: silence
Topic: HTML Questions

Hi everyone, my first post so bear with me.....

FTP'd my new site to angelfire - www.angelfire.com/pe2/bonhom - no problems. When I go direct to this url the site and its navigation menu work just fine. However, when I go to www.bonhom.com (it's internet alias) the navigation menu is not shown and I can't get to any other pages (e.g. www.bonhom.com/page2.html). 

I have reported this problem twice to the help desk but have been met with silence.  

Is there anyone out there who has experienced a similar problem and can help?

Thanks in advance.

JavaScript Only Works in Preview
Topic: HTML Questions

Hello all. I'm a Web developer and am stuck with quite a simple error. I don't know if I need an extra pair of eyes or just a script rewrite, but I am using a script to load thumbnails in an adjoining DIV (all in a table, class "thumbs").

In "Preview" mode, the thumbnails load fine, and the images all load properly, etc. But when I visit the page via other means, all of the thumbnails are full size again, and everything is crazy.

 I've had Angelfire issues before, mostly concerning code syntax. Sometimes the standards-compliant ending backslash (in single tags) will throw off a whole page. Finally, this error is only happening sometimes, although I have not edited the code again. 



Take a look and let me know what you think! Thumbnails are on "graphics" link.

Topic: HTML Questions

 "To make your own 404 Error Page, simple create an HTML page called error404.html and place it in your top-level Angelfire directory. You can use the page to link back to your homepage or promote specific parts of your site. What appears on the 404 Error Page is up to you. The only requirement is that the finished page must be at least 512 bytes in size."
From https://www.angelfire.lycos.com/popup/webshell/error404.tmpl


I've made a error404.html page. (http://brischri.angelfire.com/error404.html) but if I type http://brischri.angelfire.com/zut answer I receive is the angelfire's 404 page.

Tagging (I think) my homepage
Topic: HTML Questions

Hi everyone,

I'm really new to this, but so far have been able to figure most of it out. The only problem is for some reason I can't find my website when I use a search engine. I read something in the help section that briefly mentions tagging your website. Is this the problem? I noticed when I enter the name with no spaces links to some of the stories will come up but not the homepage. I was also wondering can I still continue to edit the page after it's searchable? I know you probably can. How else would someone add something new to their sight, but I just wanted to double check. If anyone could help me I would be very thankful. Have a great night everyone.

Free CSS Templates
Topic: HTML Questions

Can we use free templates from places like http://www.freecsstemplates.org or are we pretty much stuck with tweaking the templates given to us in our blog builder? I tried one  from freecss but couldn't get it to work. But, I'm not a css expert either. I just wandered if it was worth my time to keep trying.
