    OKAY so I built a website when I was in middle school on geocities.

    this was before i reolized there bandwidth limit, which only allows visitors to view a couple paged before denying access to the website.

    So... I made an account with a limitless bandwidth host.
    THE PROBLEM IS... all of my pictures and links are still pointing to geocities...
    like all of my pictures load from the geocities account and homepage links, link visiters back to the old geocities storage.

    IS THERE ANYWAY to change all of the links besides going throuh them 1 by 1 and changing them....
    I started to change them 1 by 1 but it is taking FOREVER...
    PLEASE HELP...

    You'll now want to learn PHP so that you can use one script to dynamically
    generate your gallery pages ... no more static pages with tons of links.

    But to answer your question, you could use PHP to actually change the text
    in the HTML file. How about opening your HTML file with Wordpad and doing
    a replace?

    How many pages are you talking about, and do you now have all of your
    images in one directory? Use relative paths instead of absolute paths.

    I'd create the same folder structure that you had on geocities on your new host, and then upload the images there. Then do a "search and replace all" in your code with the old / new file / link locations, e.g. Replace "http://www.geocities.com/site/imgs/" with "http://www.newhost.com/site/imgs".
    The Rules
