Your pictures aren't showing up, so I viewed your source. Looks like you
have some spaces in the way your images are saves. They should look like
<.img src="your_picture.jpg> (without the leading "dot".)
Are you using a program to do your pages or are you using file manager? If
file manager, you need to create a subdirectory for images (name it
whatever you like, but it should also have an 'index'), then upload your
pictures to that directory.
Then you will want to use the code: <.img src="../images/your_pic_name.jpg>
The leading ./ or ../ indicates where your images are stored. ./ indicates
that your on your main page, then all the subdirectories will use ../
Hope I didn't confuse you. I'm sure someone else may be able to explain it
a lot better than I can......but I tried.

Subject: [FreeHelp] Help with background colors and jpegs showing up on
I need some help with getting my background colors and jpegs to show up
on my website. From home and on my browser everything looks just like I
created and saved it.
I checked it over the internet at work, an only my index page has the
background color. The rest are white or off-white.
I did two things now from home. I uploaded the jpeg files to my
directory. I added the color code to the body just before the blue
swirlies gif file. The gif file is uploaded in the directory also.
Could somebody please look at my site and tell me what shows up? The
jpegs are on the name links--Carl Newton Sprouse, Orion Lee Sprouse,
James William Sprouse.
