Make sure you have entered the valid path to your image. To see the image path, open your page in Internet Explorer and click right mouse button on the "little x" (anywhere inside the image place), a pop-up menu appeares. Select "Properties" from the pop-up menu. Take look at the "Address" filed it must be valid.
Question:
I have made about seven different pages for my site, but i cant get them the link together. I have had no trouble with links to outside sites, thats a cinch, but i cant just get the pages of my own site to talk to each other!
Answer:
When you create a local link (a link from one document to another on the same site), you don't need to specify the entire URL of the document you're linking to; instead, you specify a relative path from the current document or from the site's root folder.
See the Link Paths topic in the online help for more info.
Question:
I have a text box for the person to enter their email address. Is there any way of validating using your soft ware?
Answer:
You can validate a form field if you add the following java script to your web page. To add java script select Container with HTML script from the Insert menu.
<script Language="JavaScript">
function Form_Validator(theForm)
{
for (i = 0; i < theForm.length; i++) {
     if (theForm.elements[i].name == "FORM_ELEMENT_NAME") {
        if (theForm.elements[i].value=="")
           {
           alert("Please fill in the field");
           theForm.elements[0].focus();
           return (false);
           }
        else
           return (true);
     }
}
}
</script>
Change the "FORM_ELEMENT_NAME" to actual name of e-mail address field.
Also select the form layer, click Layer's additional script from the Modify menu, and enter the following string:
onsubmit="return Form_Validator(this)"
Question:
I would like to know how to avoid having a gif file from being converted to a new image. This file is at the top of all of my pages, and when people go to different pages, this file loads every time.  I had this site running just by uploading one file called top3.gif.  Now when I want to upload all the revised pages it wants to load this "converted iimage" 9 times.
Answer:
An image is converted to another file if you have altered the original image, e.g. made it transparent, resized it, added shadow etc. To have one image on all pages just set the same file name in the File Name box, in the Conversion tab of Properties panel. After this all your pages will refer to one file.

onClick="window.open('LARGE_IMAGE_URL',
'Large Image',
'screenX=10, screenY=10, width=490, height=470')"

To do that you can insert an HTML container with IFRAME tag like:
<iframe src="http://www.yourpageaddress.com" frameborder=0 vspace=0 hspace=0 width=600 height=500 marginwidth=0 marginheight=0 scrolling=yes>
</iframe>
Change the SRC parameter to URL of your page.
Question:
When I type fonts everithing is ok, but when I export them to the html files I see some other signs (fonts).
Answer:
You need to change character encoding of your web page. Click Page Properties from the Modify menu and select a character set from the Char. Set list .
Question:
It seems that when the web pages are viewed in Internet explorer, they are displayed beautifully but when viewed in Netscape, the paragraphs overrun each other and the page is not displayed properly.
Answer:
The problem is the program uses layers to display the graphics but Netscape supports layers from version 4 only. You can get rid from layers if you select Don't Use Layers in the Browser Compatibilities in the Export dialog box. In this case you should use tables to align your graphics.
Question:
I would like to know if there is a way to have the pages center to the users screen?
Answer:
To have text to be centered within the browser window:
  • From the Insert menu click Table | New Table.
  • Make the table on the center using the Center command from the Format menu.
This method only works if HTML text doesn't contain layers.
To get rid of the layers, select the All Browsers, don't use layers in the Browser Compatibility box in the Export to HTML file dialog box.
Question:
I'm trying to set up a form to email me without using Outlook Express. How else can I do it?
Answer:
You have to design a script on your web server that will handle requests from your form. Usually this is a program written on PERL or C++. You can find information how to program CGI scripts at www.google.com, type search string "CGI script".
