    Hi everyone..

    I want to be able to edit in filezilla..the only problem my entire layout isn't in html, it somehow links to the images in my directory.. For example, for an image to appear, it just does this "src="images/tslogo.png" />" With no link, just links to the directory.

    Another example is the sidebox's of my site, they appear like this in the HTML "<div class="sidebox">"
    I have no clue how they appear, and I am not quite able to convert my layout to all HTML.

    I would love it for it to be in all HTML so I won't have to keep uploading the images to each directory each time I set up a new page or link for my site.. Just take a look at my websites page source to see what I mean.

    Here's my site: www.greedycrab.110mb.com
    And here's where I got the actual layout: http://themebot.com/website-template...4363-sandtiger

    When I try to edit in FileZilla, I can't since not much of it shows up since it's not all in HTML.

    Will anyone be able to help me out? I've been attempting to make it all HTML, but I am just confused.
    Thank you! :classic:

    When you say you're tying to edit with FileZilla, I assume you mean that
    you are opening up the files with a text editor (like Notepad) and you see
    the "HTML" coding.

    Then, within your code you see lines like this ...

    <div id="primary-links">
    <div id="primary-links-inner">
    <div class="clear-block" id="primary-links-inner-inner">
    <div class="block">


    What you're seeing is HTML that uses CSS (Cascade Style Sheets) to format
    the layout of your page. A <div> section is defined in a .css file somewhere
    by the ID, and within that defined ID are the "rules" for how that <div> section
    is to be displayed.

    Just about ALL web sites now use CSS. You'll need to learn how to use it.

    This part:
    it just does this "src="images/tslogo.png" />" With no link, just links to the directory.
    I'm not sure what you mean. That is correct ... it is displaying the image
    called "tslogo.png", which is located in the directory called "images".

    I think what you really need is ... to have someone sit down with you in person
    and give you a tutorial on web page coding (HTML, CSS) . I think you got into this
    several years ago, but coming back to it now, things have changed. There are no
    more static HTML web pages anymore. Everything is moving toward XHTML,CSS,
    and dynamic generated pages (using PHP, ASP, Perl, etc).

    Thanks for the helpful reply..

    I can still edit my pages, but I just thought it would be a lot easier to do it all in HTML.
    So I'd be better off NOT working with 100% html?

    All I pretty much want to do is work with a text editor, but I can't like this.

    ""src="images/tslogo.png" />" what I meant is, it really doesn't have an actual link of the image, like this "src="www.imagehere.com" />

    A link is like this:
    <a href="www.website.com">

    An image is displayed like this:
    <img src="myphoto.jpg">

    Or, if an image is stored on someone else's server ....
    <img src="http://www.othersite.com/myphoto.jpg">

    ===================================

    The web pages are HTML (XHTML actually, but HTML).

    I think you might be talking about a WYSIWGY editor, like FrontPage or Dreamweaver?

    In your case, you'll be editing things by hand, (text format), using a text editor.

    If I leave it in this format, <img src="myphoto.jpg">, it makes it harder to work in a text editor because it doesn't really allow me to see the preview of my site..

    Oh well, it's not that important, but I now understand what your saying..

    One more question, where in my page source (html) does it allow me to resize my sidebars? Just curious, because I can't seem to find it.

    You should go to pure 100% XHTML. and CSS. About the preview thing, there's nothing wrong with working with Frontpage and Dreamweaver. Just don't use the design section, just the coding section. Then you can view the prievew section to see what your code did to the page's display. However, you should preview in different browsers as well. When I'm coding, I'll have my text editor or Frontpage open with the HTML and CSS (the coding partl) and then I'll have my directory open, and then the page in IE and FF. So I make changes to the code in Frontpage or Notepad, then go to my two or three browser windows and refresh them (F5 in windows, handy to know) and see what the page looks like. I usuallly find that previewing in frontpage isn't necessarily a good idea becasue people don't view your site on the net with frontpage, but they do with a browser, so do your previews in a browser. But usually the prievews in Frontpage aren't too different but sometimes they are, so it's best to prievew in the browser just to be sure. Also keep in mind the cross browser differences.

    Hope that helped.!
