Ugh, this is driving me nuts. My dad is working on a web page for one of his friends, he decided to use Microsoft Word to make his page and for some reason his pics wont load up. I tried rewriting it in just html in notepad but it still wont work.. I think it might possibly be an upload issue but i dont know what. Anybody have any suggestions? the addy is http://www.angelfire.com/80s/badbowties/motm.html

Thanks

The image that you have there isn't on your server.
That would be the problem.
The syntax is correct though,
code:
<IMG SRC="URI">

Where URI is an absolute location ("http://foo.com/bar.jpg"), or a relative location ("foo/bar.jpg" or "../foo/bar.jpg" to go one level down) would be best in your case

From the looks of it you have the image files in the wrong folders... for example (quoted from your source)

code:
<P ALIGN="center"><IMG SRC="motm_files/image002.jpg">

That link doesn't show anything but if you remove the "motm_files" part the image works.

So it looks like your images were uploaded to the /badbowties/ directory instead of /badbowties/motm_images

An easy way to find out what needs to be fixed in an HTML page is to run it through an online HTML validator. The W3C has one at http://validator.w3.org/.

Helpful tip, if you are building a site and uploading it, set up your directory structure identical to what you will be using on the server.

Good luck =)

Goddess, thanks. That's what I normally do, but my dad started this and he had all the files really messed up and it took me time to figure out his layout, I did get it working tho.

Along the lines of html, at school we just started a computer club and my teacher wants me to be the one to get the website up, I have no idea what to put on there tho, do you guys have any suggestions?

Thanks,
Tony Rad

I present to you the HTML Hell Page.
To elaborate on content, content, and content, I suggest you add some things like a roster of members, when/where you meet and what you do, any projects you might be working on as a group or alone, meeting minutes (if you happen to be organized like that), and a link to the school website (assmunig you have one). If you have enough space, it probably wouldn't hurt to have everone design their own mini-site. This gives anyone who doesn't already know HTML an excuse to learn it.

Oh, some of the stuff on the HTML hell page is a little out of date. For example, I can't think of a single person who uses a text-only browser anymore. Still, a lot of it's still valid. The point I was trying to make with this is that good content is what counts, and that it's better to say something in plain black text than to say nothing through a flash animation and forty java applets.

You'd better change that to "only uses a text-only browser"!

Possibly useful reference material:

Validation software - I still use TidyGUI - now, I think, known as HTML Tidy and living at:
http://tidy.sourceforge.net/

For desktop reference, no competition, the O'Reilly Definitive Guide to HTML & XHTML - see this link:
http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/html5/

And yes, <strong>content</strong> is the key...

All good advice! I like the HTML Hell Page. [Smile]

One way to help you decide what to put on the site is to ask yourself and the other club members: what reason would you have for going to our club web site? Then if everyone says, for example, "to see when the next meeting is" and "to find out what happened at the last meeting," you know what needs to be on the site!

I've been working on my church's web site committee for the past few months, and we've gone through a lot of this kind of content decision-making. Actually, we're still going through it as we work on continually improving the site and trying to make it more useful for everyone.

Hmm...
For validation I prefer just using the W3's online validator at http://validator.w3.org

SuperFlippy:
I'm working on a similar type of site for our local synagogue.
It's online at http://www.bnaijacob.org/

And yes, content is EXTREMELY important. We are having problems with the site because of the levels of beuracrocy (sp?) that nobody wants to put anything on (the commites, etc.)
