    Ok... i dont know anything about making web pages realy, but im trying to make a completely clear webpage that is see through. i know that this sounds weird but im geting sick of seeing those action canceled boxes of blocked adds inside webpages from my host file. ive found the file "Shdoclc.dll" and were the pages are redirected to and can edit the "Navcancl.htm" inside it. but ive i alaways used web page builders to make pages. can someone please make me a see through page or a page with just one immage on it so i can rename the immage to one that is see through, that might work.... am i making any sence ?

    thanks,

    ViRi

    if you go to CLICK HERE. you will see a add on the top. i however see the Action Canceled web page that is built into windows. i was wondering if someone could post a web page that i could replace my action canceled page with of just an image or something that was see through so i could see the background of the web page instead?

    oooooohhhh.....now i get what you're wanting...a transparent image on a page to replace the typical action canceled page of windows so that you wont get the ugly action canceled?? hmm...its kinda late but try using some graphics software and creating an image with a "Transparent" background and saving it as a .gif image. Then maybe do a search on the net about replacing the action canceled page and then it should be self-explanatory from there

    however when i put a Transparent background inside that page i see a white backround inside the add box because the add in itself is another webpage. how am i supposed to fix this, i found a couple listings on the web that locate the file and how to replace it, but i dont know the code to replace it with an correct immage. i dont know html at all

    If you set a transparent background you will still get the background color of the original page. Why do you see the page as action cancelled? Do you have some sort of ad blocker running?

    If your useing a free host, don't know if you are make sure you run it by them, because sometimes they are very picky about these tiny things..They mihgt even delete your acout without notice..so be sure your allowed to change the default page.. :)

    somehow i didn't explain correctly, i have several entry's in the hosts file inside windows to block adds. instead of seeing adds i see an action canceled page built into windows. i know where the page is and can edit it, but what html code do i replace it with so the page i posted doesn't display anything and just be transparent so i can see the page behind the page so to speak?

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN">
    <html>
    
    <head>
    <style>
    a:link			{font:8pt/11pt verdana; color:red}
    a:visited		{font:8pt/11pt verdana; color:#4e4e4e}
    </style>
    <meta HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" Content="text-html; charset=Windows-1252">
    <title>No page to display </title>
    </head>
    
    <body bgcolor="white">
    
    <table width="400" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="5">
      <tr>
        <td id="tableProps" valign="top" align="left"><img id="pagerrorImg" SRC="pagerror.gif"
        width="25" height="33"></td>
        <td id="tablePropsWidth" align="left" valign="middle" width="360"><h1 id="errorText"
        style="COLOR: black; FONT: 13pt/15pt verdana">Action canceled</h1>
        </td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td id="tablePropsWidth" width="400" colspan="2"><font
        style="COLOR: black; FONT: 8pt/11pt verdana">Internet Explorer was unable to link to the
        Web page you requested. The page might be temporarily unavailable.</font></td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td id="tablePropsWidth" width="400" colspan="2"><font id="LID1"
        style="COLOR: black; FONT: 8pt/11pt verdana"><hr color="#C0C0C0" noshade>
        <p id="LID2">Please try the following:</p><ul>
          <li id="instructionsText2">Click the 
          <a xhref="javascript:location.reload()" target="_self">

            alt="refresh.gif (82 bytes)" align="middle"></a> <a xhref="javascript:location.reload()" target="_self">Refresh</a> button, or try again later.<br>
          </li>
          <li id="instructionsText3">If you have visited this page previously and you want to view
            what has been stored on your computer, click <b>File</b>, and then click <b>Work Offline</b>.<br>

          <li id="instructionsText4">For information about offline browsing with Internet Explorer,
            click the <b>Help</b> menu, and then click <b>Contents and Index</b>.<br>
          </li>
        </ul>
        <p><br>
        </p>
        <h2 id="ietext" style="font:8pt/11pt verdana; color:black">Internet Explorer </h2>
        </font></td>
      </tr>
    </table>
