Quick question: What does a "iPage web hosting site" actually do and what reason would one use it? Looking forward for any answer or 2. Another question on my mind: Hey - I am having real problems with my iPage site since I changed iPage hosting (it was written by a friend of mine and I maintain it - so i'm only a beginner!). I used to be on tripod, now I am paying for it on

Basically when the index page loads up (it is a series of frames) it loads up fine but then starts looking for a directory which isnt there! which is called '1' - one of the frames is called 1.htm, but I dont understand what is going on!! - it's a real mystery. - the address is.


The script for my index page is.



<title>: : FRAID : : the homepage [Fraid NEW ALBUM - Crisis Point: out now]</title>.

<meta name="keywords" content="FRAID, fraid, band, album, Crisis, Point, Crisis Point, Will, James, Chris,rock music, mp3, downloads, summer, web site">.

<meta name="description" content="The official FRAID homepage! Music, news, downloads, guestbook and more. Photos of the band and Fraid wallpapers are available to as well as the new album, Crisis Point">.

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">.


<frameset rows="*,300,*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">.

<frame scrolling="NO" noresize src="top.htm" >.

<frameset cols="*,220,380,*">.

<frame src="blank.htm" scrolling="NO" noresize>.

<frame src="1.htm" scrolling="NO" noresize name="nav">.

<frame src="main.htm" noresize name="main">.

<frame src="blank.htm" scrolling="NO" noresize>.


<frame scrolling="NO" noresize src=blank.htm>.



<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">.




I appreciate the help!.

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I bump into an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..

All the mouse overs where you have.


Change that to just #.

So it will look like this..

Href="#">Band Info</A>.

That is part of your problem. I also think it could be the tripod scripts that at the bottom of the page. no sense on having 5 of the same script in there unless you don't control that...

Thanks for replying scoutt - the thing is, I looked at my code and it seems to already be what you suggest changing it to - unless I am being ultra thick (which I prob am).

My code already reads.

<p><a href="#" onMouseOver="MM_showHideLayers('B1','','show','B2','','hide','B3','','hide','B4','','hide','B5','',' hide','B6','','hide','A1','','show','A2','','hide','A3','','hide','A4','','hide','A5','','hide','A6' ,'','hide','A7','','hide')">Band.


And in each instance it is href="#".

Am I being really thick?? -.

No you are right. it was the way it saved it on my machine. sorry about that. I don't have a clue unless it is one of the scripts in the 1.htm or the top.htm.

I had this problem before but mine was an applet I was using...
