[quote="Kalingzeye"]Okey, I'm home from school. Anyway, about Macromedia / uploading. Is your Geocities site free? I didn't know they hosted w/ ftp. ^^]
Thanks Kalingseye, that's very nice.
I've since uploaded my Dreamweaver site via FTP successfully after many laborious trials, one in which I literally almost punched a hole in the monitor. I don't remember exactly how I did it now, through all that labyrinth of settings and other confusing stuff.
I have a Geocities paid website with a domain name. It's about $8 a month. It comes up now on Google on the first page for particular search words because I created a big site.
I also put similar sites up using different free hosts like 741.com, but they take years to come up on the screen and are bogged down with popups. In addition to that, they don't appear on search engines w/either exact keywords, URL words, etc., even though they have numerous pages to be spidered. So, essentially, my free host sites don't exist except via the exact URL.
The only sophisticated thing I did w/DW on Yahoo was to create a form where visitors type in text fields. And the visitors browser must be configured to send email(eg, outlook ex.). It works, as I have lots of visitors filling out a form and sending information via email. So, outlook express comes up and then they send the info they've already typed in, in an email in the body of the letter. So, it isn't a really sophisticated form..
On other companies' sites, I notice they have a similar form, but after submitting info it says "thanks for the information, or your info has been submitted" and that's all.
So far, besides that, I suppose I have my website functioning efficiently enough for my basic operation. I don't know if I need to improve it.
I might in the future put up a type of Yestalk website and a site where I can upload sample files of music to download. I suppose that would have a lot of functions and forms and stuff I haven't even heard of yet. Right now my computer is too much a piece of --- and I still have dialup, so it'll be a while. Gotta get a new computer first!!
