Are there Godaddy promo codes for free transfer?
First off, Are there Godaddy promo codes for free transfer? Many thanks for any answer or 2. My 2nd question... I justt started learning html about a week ago so I'm a big-time newbie, please bare with me! I downloaded a template from a GoDaddy site and it has a simple banner across the top for a picture... and I can't figure out how to put a picture in there! you can view my page at.

Please someone tell me how I can insert a picture into that space at the top of the page...lol... I know this is probably the easiest thing to do... thanks in advance for your help!..

Sure, there are many Godaddy promotional codes out there. Good chance to save cash on Godaddy now. I urge you to you to sign-up for their mailing list so you can receive their latest online deals. They usually send them out once a week or 2..

Yea I use an ftp client called cute ftp by globalSCAPE... it's supposed to be the best one I guess... but what is a local_html folder?.

I uploaded the picture halobanner.jgp into my picture directory but it still doesn't show up onj the site... before I uploaded it there was a little X in the upper left corner of the box where the picture should show up, but now that I uploaded the picture the little icon changed to what looks like a tiny triange, circle and square, or something like that.... so I know it changed something when I uploaded the picture.....

Oops I meant to say what is a public_html folder... sorry bout that..

Comment #3

Okay when you log into your GoDaddy site using FTP what folders do you see, can you list them all here please?..

Comment #4

Have a read of you hosting servers instructions for uploads. They will generally tell you that all your files need to be resident in a folder named public_html which they set up for you. Usually they will also have a directory within public_html called cgi where all your cgi scripts will reside...

I see all of my different pages with .html after them and I see a folder that I made called TemplatePictures... it's my picture directory.... within that file is halobar.jpg.

The host that i'm with is really unclear on everything that is giong on, I'm getting the impression that they have some sort of work crew that answers questions through email because when I get email from them there are tons of typos and stuff..

Comment #6

Okay you still didn't tell me what folders were listed on your FTP if you don't know just take a screen shot of what you see when you log into your ftp and attach it to a post...

Comment #7

Okay I contacted my host and they looked at my stuff and they said it was because the image source wasn't called http://clandropdead.50webs.com/templ...es/halobar.jpg.

So I changed the image source and uploaded it and it still won't work...

I feel emberrassed about this but sadly to say... I dont know how to take screen shots..... but here's a question... does it matter if the image size doesn't fit the size of the image box on my html source? because the size of the box is 772x154 and I know the picture isnt that tall and it is a little longer than that also... does size matter?.

Ps: here is the contents of the ftp right when I log in.....

Right when I log in there is a folder that says clandropdead.50webs.com so I click on it and then there is: howtojoin.html, index.html, members.html, pictures.html, popularsites.html... and so on... and then there is my directory that is called templatepictures, within that directory is halobar.jpg.

If this is not the information you need I dont know what to say because thats what I see when I log in..

Comment #8

Okay this is what I think is happening. Because you are using the direct link to the image, your host thinks that the image is being hotlinked. So to prevent this you should use the relative url to the image. With that said try this.

<img src="TemplatePictures/haloBar.JPG" width="772" height="154">.

Then again I could be wrong about this. The actual url to your image is this.

Comment #9

Oh yea I remember reading a FAQ section at my host and it said that exact same thing! dang I'm ignorant! it said that they dont allow hyperlinks! ill try this stuff and see if it works!..

Comment #10

Holy crap it worked thank you soooo much!AAHHH that was so annoying you're my new best friend.

Okay I have another question that doesnt really have to do with html but sort-of... I need to make the picture so it isnt stretched in the little box on my site... where do I find the dimensions of my picture so I can edit the html code accordingly?..

Comment #11

You will need an image editor to do this. Windows Explorer in thumbnail view will tell you the current dimensions of your image, but so will the image editor when you open it. Adjust your image to the size you want in your browser and make sure you constrain it so it scales both vertically and horizontally to preserve perspective..

If you don't have an image editor, post back here the size you want the image and I'll do it for you...

Comment #12

Looks like you tried to put a picture in there already. <img src="halobar.jpg" width="772" height="154">.

Are you tryin to put a picture over that picture. If it's a problem just trying to get halobar.jpg to show up, have you uploaded it to your host?..

Comment #13

Yes that is the picture that i'm trying to make show up, and I have uploaded it to my host several times because i've changed stuff on the GoDaddy site several times, and it still isn't showing up! I don't understand what you were saying at the bottom of your last post about pm or whatever.....

Comment #14

Do I have to upload the picture to a directory with my host before it will work??? I just realized that correct me if I'm wrong!..

Comment #15

Yeah it should be in your public_html folder if you have one any folder before that you won't be able to see the image. That pm me about an invite thing it's in my signature, it shows up on every post don't worry about that. Do you use FTP to upload your images? Or do you have some type of web interface to upload your images?..
