Help with using Dreamweaver

by Horton3105 / August 23, 2006 9:54 AM PDT

hello,
im new here so first off i would like to say hello to everyone. im pretty new at using dreamweaver and HTML code but i was asked to design a new layout for a website that i have been designing graphics for. i got the basic layout where i wanted it so i previewed it in the browsers to check how it looked. in firefox, it looked perfect, exactly how i wanted it. but when i previewed it in internet explorer, i noticed that parts of the layout were shifted. here are pictures of the previews from both firefox and explorer. thanks for the help

I went to your real website

I went to your real website. Ready Hosting is really slowing down the loading time.

Also if I view it with Internet Explorer I get a couple of errors on it.

First Image with error message is

I have the latest version of Sun Java on my computer.

Next the counter at the bottom is missing

See Image

Using Mozilla Firefox, I use the extention NoScript. If I temporarily allow your website the scrolling banner goes across. But the counter is still missing

See Image

If you really want to get picky go to

http://validator.w3.org/

and type in your URL

You will see that it fails validation and that there are 251 errors. Read this carefully. If you correct the ones that are wrong or even get close, the webpage will look the way you want it to. Not every website will pass the validation but correcting the errors will help to align things, especially the margins.


Hope this helps.

I saw your errors
by PudgyOne / August 24, 2006 2:42 AM PDT
In reply to: heres the code

I saw your errors using the FREE html kit.

It can be downloaded at

http://www.download.com/3000-2048-4687625.html

After you install it, you can paste you code to it. It will then show you the images and you can click back and forth to try different things to correct the problem. If it shows up corrctly in the html kit, then Internet Explorer could be the problem. When using the html kit, after you paste your code there, look at the preview first to see if you notice anything wrong. It's hard for me to do without the actual images. It's possible one of these images are wrong. Click on the hammer and it will tell you your errors and help you to correct them.

Someone else may see your code and be able to help you a little batter than I can. I only take care of a little website that's prefabricated. I can only change certain things there and I don't use Dreamweaver.

One more thing. If you want your website noticed by search engines, you should be using html coding instead of pictures and flash. The pictures need an alt description as well as flash objects.


Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
