First of all What does a free domain in a iPage web hosting package means? Many thanks for any response. Second question.. Help, Im trying to make a comments page in my website, but I didnt know how to code for a form, so I used one of frontpage xpress' form wizards. It looks great, took me only 5 mins to build, but when peeps try to submit their comments, they get a 404 Error page from my host. I have run thru creating this page a hundred times, I know what I'm doing should work, but it doesnt. Here's a sample of the HTML, hope I grabbed everything relevent (chopped off the top cos it's irrelevent) please, let me know whats going wrong and how to fix it....



<h1>Comments</h1>.

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I discover an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..

Thanks guys, i'll give it a try, and keep you posted. keep ya fingers crossed for me will ya? ...i cant wait to kill the guest-book I signed upto as a temp measure. I'll no doubt be back here next time I update my site, adding more stuff to it, I mean my host gave me 50megs, and i've only used 0.33 mb, so, lotsa room to play with...any ideas btw?..

I you're going to use frontpage extensions the iPage website must be front page compatible, which I have no idea if Angelfire is. And this line will certainly not work on Angelfire:.

U-file="file:///C:/WINDOWS/TEMP/shocomm.htm".

This line should point to a directory on your angelfire website, not on your computer you have at home. Something like:.

U-file="file:http://www.angelfire.com/realm2/the_Grove/comments.htm".

And the URL in your post does not seem to exist.

Http://www.angelfire.com/realm2/the_Grove/comments.htm..

Comment #3

Well Kevin, I'd have hoped you'd have realised I took the script straight from my HD version, and not from the version on angelfire, and i've come to the conclusion that Angelfire is not the place I wanna host my site, because they're anti frontpage and their own pre-whatevered CGI scripts (which you have to use) like the counter have been screwing up recently. And the comments page link I gave is a working link - just I signed up to a guest book in the short-term rather then ruin the whole flow of the iPage site with a non-functional comments form, so you cant see it any more.... sorry, I forgot to update on that one. One thing I dont understand, in a lot of the posts in this forum, you guys are seriously anti-frontpage, why is that?..

A colleague was doing a simple info iPage site for his department with FP2002 (his HTML knowledge was zip 'til I put him straight.

), and for fun, I was showing him how to validate, and it passed! Sure surprised me! Maybe it's getting better...
