a capitalization problem.

Ok, I did what I was suppose to. I added two more webpages to my "Webpages" folder, edited them a bit, and after I did a full update it would not show them. Maybe I'm not doing something right?? I dunno, so if anyone knows how to do this please tell me how you did so I can see where I went wrong. Anywhom, Laterz!<P><P>------------------

Well, I don't know how much of a help I can be, but here's what I did (and I have several other webpages) - I just made my pages (.html, by the way), tucked them into the webpages folder, and then with a full update, after five or so minutes the pages should be in the public_html directory, so you can check them out at yoursite.keenspace.com/yourwebpage.html. Hope that helps.<P>------------------

...and it turns out capitalization counts.<P>Can anybody tell me any tricks to
getting graphics from the images folder?<P>My first_day.gif, next_day.gif, etc.
graphics, and some others, aren't loading.<P>They go in the images folder. Do you
reference them like they're in the current
folder (src=first_day.gif), or the images
folder (src=images/first_day.gif)?

Actually, for first_day.gif, previous_day.gif, etc, you don't refer to them at all. You just put the ***first_day*** or ***previous_day*** tag where you want it to appear, and then when you update it will automatically put the correct graphic and URL link in.<P>-Shannon Traska

Thanks both!<P>I've got graphics working, but<P>I have the ***first_day.gif*** tag, etc,
and that doesn't.<P>In other words, if you go to <a href=http://www.boxjam.keenspace.com>my page</a>, there
is a link to the first comic, and the
previous comic, which were generated
automatically.<P>I must have my graphics for those in the
wrong place, right? Where are they supposed
to go, if not in the images folder?

Hmm...a curious problem...are all your next_day.gif files, etc lowercase? As long as they're in the workspace/images folder, it should go off without a which and the pics will get automatically picked up by the tags. I think this is a job for Nate! (heroic fanfare plays)<P>------------------
