1st Webpage, and many problems

Recommended Posts

Trying to set up my first webpage (am using 4.01 Transitional), so far have 4 sections to it, but I can't get the 'Home' command to work. Except for the 'Home' link on bottom of page, none of the others work -- all I get are 404 errors when I try. Also having problem with getting text to align over only 2 pictures (so far) on site.The site is loading as 1 large page. When running a validator, it says I am trying to mix XHTML and HTML together.Some of the things it says are that I can't use: # in front of a color, A HREF, <CENTER> , < or > or something in <> isn't allowed.Being that this is my first post here, I don't know if posting URL of my site's allowed, so will wait and see if a moderator, or one of the Board members says if its ok or not.

By Source Code I am assuming you mean all I've typed in, so here we go. Sorry its so long.I have several lines <!-- --> out because I was, in some cases, experimenting with a line change & wanted to keep old one as it was.================

not to be rude in any way but that code needs some serious help. First, here is how the proper HTML format should be.

<html><head><title>page title</title></head><body>place all of your content in here</body></html>[/code]
In your code are numerous body tags and all sorts of crazy stuff. So what I did is cleaned it up and converted it to valid XHTML 1.0. With XHTML, there are no capital letters in the tags. The issue you had with your colors is because you were missing your quotations. Here is what I came up with:[code]<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"><html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><head><title>The Payne Place</title><meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" /><link href="http://gpayne2.Home.mindspring.com/style.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/><meta name="generator" content="NoteTab Light 4.95"/><meta name="keywords" content="Payne, Fresno, Music, Jazz, Radio, Scanners, Scanning, cylinders, 78RPM, 78s, Voltron, Weather"/></head><body bgcolor="#00aaFF" text="#ffffff" link="#000fff" vlink="#008800" alink="ffcc00"><div align="center"><font face="Arial, Times New Roman, Helvetica, Courier New, Sans Serif" color="#ff000" size="+7">THEPAYNE PLACE</font></div><div align="center"><font face="Arial, Times New Roman, Helvetica, Courier New, Sans Serif" color="#ffff00" size="+1">A Collection of Links on Genealogy, Jazz, Missouri, Radio, Scanners, Weather,Plus other items hopefully of Interest</font></div><div align="center"><h4>Version 1.1 Uploaded: 3/15/2006</h4></div><br/><div align="center"><h1><a href="http://gpayne2.Home.mindspring.com/index.html">Home</a></h1></div><p> Yes, I'm going to use the old "This is my first webpage!" line here.

I did remove some of your comments FYI.My advice is to never use that program EVER again. Get Dreamweaver, or at least try the 30day trial. I also recommend not capitalizing names of pages (like Home.html). In your links (<a> tags), src and target are NOT the same. src is the destination, target is used if you are going to a specific frame or want to load the link in a new window instance. When useing the & symbol, use it's ASCII representation &Edit: your code may not validate properly because for some reason this forum converts the ASCII representation of & automattically. Go look up the code on this page and replace all instances of & with the code you find on that page.

calvin182 ..... thanks for the cleanup! I knew there were problems -- serious ones -- but being I didn't start looking at HTML and stuff associated with it till a week or so ago, I expeccted trouble :) . As to program(s), I got freeware because majority of stuff available is currently beyond my means financially, being on limited budget. Ok "dont use the program again" what freeware editor would be suitable then? Not sure at all whats out there. --- CZZ --- ==========================================

<html><head><title>page title</title></head><body>place all of your content in here</body></html>

In your code are numerous body tags and all sorts of crazy stuff. So what I did is cleaned it up and converted it to valid XHTML 1.0. With XHTML, there are no capital letters in the tags. The issue you had with your colors is because you were missing your quotations. Here is what I came up with:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"><html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><head><title>The Payne Place</title><meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" /><link href="http://gpayne2.Home.mindspring.com/style.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/><meta name="generator" content="NoteTab Light 4.95"/><meta name="keywords" content="Payne, Fresno, Music, Jazz, Radio, Scanners, Scanning, cylinders, 78RPM, 78s, Voltron, Weather"/></head><body bgcolor="#00aaFF" text="#ffffff" link="#000fff" vlink="#008800" alink="ffcc00"><div align="center"><font face="Arial, Times New Roman, Helvetica, Courier New, Sans Serif" color="#ff000" size="+7">THEPAYNE PLACE</font></div><div align="center"><font face="Arial, Times New Roman, Helvetica, Courier New, Sans Serif" color="#ffff00" size="+1">A Collection of Links on Genealogy, Jazz, Missouri, Radio, Scanners, Weather,Plus other items hopefully of Interest</font></div><div align="center"><h4>Version 1.1 Uploaded: 3/15/2006</h4></div><br/><div align="center"><h1><a href="http://gpayne2.Home.mindspring.com/index.html">Home</a></h1></div><p> Yes, I'm going to use the old "This is my first webpage!" line here. I've had computers for several years, but more of a user than technically knowledgeable. <br/> First Computer was a Timex-Sinclair® TS-1000(4k RAM Built in, but expandable with a plug-in cartridge. At one time in USA, there were at least 2 Monthly magazines for this Computer. I had a couple of Tandy® Computers, then a couple that were built for me, including the one I'm using now which is about 5 years old: 1 GHz Athlon Thunderbird, 256 Mb RAM, Windows 98SE® hope to get a new one late this year.<br/>Age, over 50. Other interests: Old time music -- primarily pre-1940, have a smallish collection of 78 RPM records, including some by Enrico Caruso, and Sousa's Band -- Scanner Radios, Shortwave listening, Amateur ("Ham") Radio. Genealogy -- my Parent's, and my Grandparent's were born in Missouri: Payne, Johns, Bounds, Watts, Willis, Martin, Wall are names in my family tree.</p><hr/><h3><a href="http://gpayne2.Home.mindspring.com/index.html">Home</a></h3><h3><a href="http://gpayne2.Home.mindspring.com/weather.html">Weather</a></h3><h3><a href="http://gpayne2.Home.mindspring.com/music.html">Music</a></h3><h3><a href="http://gpayne2.Home.mindspring.com/frequencies.html">Local Scanning Frequencies</a></h3><h3><a href="http://gpayne2.Home.mindspring.com/genealogy.html">Genealogy</a></h3><h3><a href="http://gpayne2.Home.mindspring.com/radio.html">Radio</a></h3><h3><a href="http://gpayne2.Home.mindspring.com/pictures.html">Pictures</a></h3><hr/><br/><br/><br/><div align="center"><h1>MUSIC SITES</h1></div><div align="center"><p>A collection of some of my favorite sites covering from pre-1900 to early 1940's</p></div><br/><h3><a href="http://www.redhotjazz.com/bands.html" target="_blank">Redhot Jazz Archives</a>     5,000+ RealAudio Files of Jazz & Early Swing 1913 to '40, + some from the 50's & 60's</h3><h3><a href="http://dismuke.org/" target="_blank">Dismuke's Virtual Talking Machine</a>   Menu leads to pages of RealAudio files dating from about 1900 through the 1930's.</h3><h3><a href="http://www.tinfoil.com/default.htm" target="_blank">Tinfoil.Com</a>    RealAudio Files of Cylinder recordings dating 1891 to about 1915.

I did remove some of your comments FYI.My advice is to never use that program EVER again. Get Dreamweaver, or at least try the 30day trial. I also recommend not capitalizing names of pages (like Home.html). In your links (<a> tags), src and target are NOT the same. src is the  destination, target is used if you are going to a specific frame or want to load the link in a new window instance. When useing the & symbol, use it's ASCII representation &Edit: your code may not validate properly because for some reason this forum converts the ASCII representation of & automattically. Go look up the code on this page and replace all instances of & with the code you find on that page.
