    Hello everyone,

    I have paid a web designer to make a website for me, but it has lots of problems; for example the links are not working properly and I don't want to pay for a designer any more.
    I have some knowledge on html which is the language used to design our website; but unfortunately I don't know how to access the codes to edit them!
    Could you please give me some hint on that?

    Thanks in advance.

    Usually, you would access them through FTP. Filezilla is a good choice for that.

    You should have received a email or something with connection information from your hosting provider.

    It will have your connection information for FTP access or perhaps the host has a control panel that allows for access to your files from there.

    Thanks Ronald & Webzarus, I found the files.

    Just a couple of more questions.
    The menu bar is broken. Should I download each page, edit it and upload it back?
    Also do you know how can I update my news & events page? What is the common way to do it?

    It all depends on how it's coded.

    If they are HTML files, they yeah, you should probably just download all the files on the site...

    Edit locally on your machine, then when down editing, upload them to the server.

    You may want to consider installing a web server on you local machine for testing, but if they are only HTML files ( no php or scripting languages ), you probably don't need a test server.
