Subject: [FreeHelp] Another desparate plea for help...
Date: Tue, 18 Nov 2003 16:13:04 -0800 (PST)
For longer than I like to admit, I've been trying --without much success-- to move my many webpages from http://www.geocities.com/qvarizona/
to http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~qvarizona/ Did get my home index page moved, but as you can see, it somehow layered over the ads, which I suspect is not what the sponsors intended. I hope no one will think I'm trying a "cover-up". I assure you, it was unintentional, and I can't seem to fix the problem. Is there some html language that will solve this? Or???
But I have more problems, and am hoping someone who has already moved from geocities can give me some pointers.
Although I know a wee bit about html, and can do some editing --add meta tags, spider-invites, etc.-- there's no way I can write an html page with tables, graphics, links, etc. so I am using EasyWebEditor to create new pages or to do a copy/paste from one of my geocities pages. I transfer them to freepages using WS FTP. So far, no problems... well, a few, but nothing that causes me pain and anquish, and nothing that seems unsolvable. But after I transfer pages, I mostly just bring them home to my computer again, because I can't seem to use them online.
Trouble comes --I think--because I still don't understand the freepages editor, file manager or directory system. When I transfer a file, there is the html page + graphics, style page, etc. How do I organize them or do I? How do I organize my different reports and link to them? Do I have to bring my index page "home" to my computer and do all the links there? Would sure end up with a lo-ooong page to work with.
I imagine the first problem I should solve is the one that prevents the sponsor's ads from fully showing. And by the way, please answer as though I were an idiot, as I seem to have developed a mental block that is preventing my following any but the most simple of directions! I'm feeling so dim-witted that I'm not even sure what questions to ask, but I hope that won't prevent my getting help.
You know, I feel better just sharing this with someone besides my poor, patient husband. I thank you on his behalf as well as my own, for any help at all. Even a kind word would be appreciated.
