Good Evening (better: night already - again
Having bought your E-book (priceless!!), read the instructions and posts on this forum, spent days and nights with this - still after your patient answers during years already to many people - I haven't been able to do more than putting tekst-links to iDisk-pages with beautiful purple
colour - the links lead to internet and to the right pages of our site but they don't look correct - as I made them with cssmenumaker. So, the links are not seen in internet. The pages on iDisk are indicated on the adress-line like forexample the home page as:
The same page in internet with (only) the text-box (HereGoesTheMenu) looks on the adress line as:http://www.click2dressup.com/DESIGNER_C ... /home.html
As said, in internet the blue linked text is not seen. With the code above you can of course see all the other pages, too.
The dropdown menu made with cssmenumaker was easy and fast, I downloaded it, put the menu-part of it (with images and menu_style.css) in the sites-folder (near the index.html), found the code (from installation_instruction.html) from the cssmenu-folder, downoaded the MassReplaceIt, shifted the code to it, changed the line (I tried several alternatives)
<style media="all" type="text/css">@import "/menu/menu_style.css";</style>
<style media="all" type="text/css">@import "/click2dressup.com/menu/menu_style.css";</style>
<style media="all" type="text/css">@import "/firstname.lastname@example.org/menu/menu_style.css";</style>
<style media="all" type="text/css">@import "/fantasia3/menu/menu_style.css";</style>
<style media="all" type="text/css">@import "/www.click2dressup.com/menu/menu_style.css";</style>
There the "email@example.com" is our MobileMe username, the "click2dressup.com" is the domainname bought from Hosting-company. The fullname of our site is: http://www.click2dressup.com/DESIGNE_CLOTHES_ONLINE
Maybe I tried even more alternatives, I also tried the alternative without changing the code at all. Nothing worked. Every time I checked the settings on MassReplaceIt. MassR. found the file "DESIGNE_CLOTHES_ONLINE" generally easily, but the dropdownmenu didn't go further than to iDisk - and, like I before told, it didn't look as it should, but instead it was just blue text where the links worked ok.
Then some questions from which some obviously connect to our problem, some - I don't know if they do or not, - better to ask from you anyway
1. Can I, or should I not put away the header - can I start building the page in iWeb from totally blank surface?
2. I have put the wide text-box (from left to the right end of each page) between the red text "How to use this service" and the self-made menu (which I built from small textboxes with page-numbers - each numbers link to correct page). Is this position otherwise correct? The blue text (which should be the css-menu) on some pages is on different place than where I wrote the text HereGoesTheMenu, I don't know why.
I don't know exactly what is the position on the "HereGoesTheMenu"-box on each page - is it on the header, body etc., because I took away the header-boxes - don't ask me why. I guess we wanted to build all the pages from white, clean surface
3. After editing in iWeb by adding the text-boxes "HereGoesTheMenu" to each page should I publish the site with both, MobileMe and FTP, or only MobileMe, or all three: MobileMe, FTP and to computer, or still fourth way - the iWeb-generated FTP-system?
In iWeb when I look at "Site Publishing Settings" the MobileMe-account has been indicated like this: firstname.lastname@example.org
I thought the MobileMe account email@example.com
Which part of this should be put inside the menu-code just before
To someone (was it Brian?) you adviced not to put anything, but I remember to have read that you adviced to change that part of the code by adding there MobileMe username, or was it domain - too tired to have a look at it now, but for this I am a little confused, as you can see from my face
I really do appreciate your work - it has been an adventure to start only in March 2011 from totall zero (I didn't even know what it means to copy and paste)- not at all frustrating, even if you would think after all my questions, but after I found your sites, I've started thinking "what if I could try it too - building a well-functioning Web site for my wife's special purpose with her. I (we are) am just in the beginning and on the moment stuck in a jam. Best wishes to you!
