    I want to change the email address on my home page and I do not know enough html or FTP to change it to my new email address.

    Some one else made the home page for me but they are no longer available.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    TIA
    Ray

    Do you actually have ftp access?

    You need it if you want to change the address am afraid.

    You need to download the main home page file, normally this is called index.htm, index.php or something similar.

    Then open it in Wordpad or something do a CTRL+F to open the find box, then search for you email address and change it to your new one.

    I am using fireftp and I have found my email address located in two places in the index.html but it is listed as a graphic. Now I copied and pasted it to chg it to text?

    It is listed as the index.html in a folder called vti_cnf

    I have transferred the html file to a text so that I could change the addresses, but now how do I convert it back to uploaded it back into the home page?

    By the way thanks for all the help with this ignorant soul.

    Can you show us the code of your page.

    Make sure you put [ code] and [/ code] (without the spaces) round it when you paste it:

    eg:

    [ code]
    your web page code here
    [/ code]

    Hi Darren;

    I think that I have sent you the correct information. I haven't heard from you and thought I should get back to you.

    I can not figure out what half of this is about and so I may have sent you the wrong info.

    Please let me know if there is anything else that will be needed or even if I have not sent the proper info.

    Thanks again for all the help.

    Ray

    Hey ray, this is not the correct stuff am afraid.

    Seems you may have just pasted the text from the page, what I need to see if the code behind the page.

    Download a copy of the index.html file, then open it in notepad and and copy and past the content here.

    You must put [code ] and [/ code] round it when you paste it here so that it is in a readable format.

    Hi Darren;

    I got it all straightened out... An old friend came buy and did the entire thing in about 5 minutes.

    All is well and working OK.

    I really appreciate your help tho, it got me to at least try tackling the thing after 6 months of ignoring it. LOL

    By using EI in stead of Firefox it was very easy to chg from text to html.

    It just seemed to make the job much easier.

    Maybe you also gave me an urge to read up more on this entire programming thing.

    Thanks again for the mucho help and understanding.

    Cheers,
    Ray

    PS: Still have a problem on techmonkeys about wanting to change my username or unsubscribe and then resubscribe to chg it. I screwed it up when super tired when I joined. Wanted to chg username to rayxoxo.
