    I have an account with HostMonster.com and have been using Web Easy Pro 10 for months to create and upload my website. I've never had any difficulty with it. I just use the FTP upload thing in the software using my credentials and everyhting just works.

    However, I changed to WYSIWYG to make a better site and I love the software. I have created a pretty good website. However.... when I publish it, it just doesn't work. For example:

    Originally I researched that I don't have an index.html file when publishing but I don't know why. I can't seem to find out online anywhere how to make one or whatever I need to do. I would have figured the WYSIWYG would have published one for me like Web Easy Pro did without any trouble but I guess not. When I create a new website without a template, it does include an index.html in the site map but not in the one I've worked for weeks on.

    Originally when I would go to the website after publishing, it used to just show an idex of the website. Then I tried to import the index.html file from the blank project into my existing project and now it shows a blank page when I go to my website. The only way to view any pages is to add /Home.html to even see the home page.

    I just don't know what to do. My site is AvantGardeCares.com and you can see what I'm talking about. The title is Untitled Page but I don't know why.

    I uploaded a screenshot of the site map. Like I said, I tried to import the index.html file from another project but I guess that's why it lands to a blank page when I go to the website but I don't know where the one is for the site I created is or how to make/generate one in the software.

    I suggest that you save your Home.html page as index.html and upload it to your site, being careful to change any links in subsequent pages which are pointing to Home.html, to now point to index.html ...;)

    You also need to change the page title in your editor to your site not the template name.
