Taaz, it really doesn't seem as difficult as first thought. I did manage to get few few experimental pages previewed. I am definitely going to learn the fine art of HTML. It gives you much more control.I also know it is really time consuming! And ya sure need plenty of patience. Again Thanks..

Also,since I'm beginning to understand HTML a bit better. I checked mine out for YourPhotos4Ever.com. What I found was what seems like a mess! I took out all those extra keywords!( What was I thinking!)

I again can't thank you enough for all the help you've been. You've opened a whole new Ave. to me.

Heh heh Diane - you're only a couple of years "older" than me...

I'm glad to see you're getting more comfy with HTML and the Editor and can finally see that it's not that hard, once you see how things "flow" -- as for the Business Cards, just follow the instructions on my site and we'll take it from there.

Now -- *drumroll* -- your site's new "landing page" is ready for your review; however, please read the following instructions very carefully and adhere to them strictly; otherwise you might mess things up!

1. When you click the link below, everything is currently on my server.

2. Once the page loads, go to the top of your browser; select "View"; then select "Page Source" -- here is where you'll see all of the code that runs your landing page.

3. Just before the "<body>" tag, you'll see a long string of code that's unfamiliar to you -- this is the CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) code that drives your site ... DO NOT MESS WITH THIS CODE ... CSS is a shorter language for sites, but I left it there just in case you don't have your own server, and SiteBuilder might mess it up.

4. The PayPal icon in the right column doesn't take you to the PayPal site for customers to pay -- you'll have to place their exact code, or it won't work -- if you don't think you can do that properly, just PM me with all of the code and I'll do it for you.

5. Lastly; if you're happy with the site, DELETE EVERY BIT OF SITEBUILDER CODE ... then, copy/paste every part of my code; save it; and upload everything.

Let me know how you do, and good luck!

Here's the new landing page -- http://www.govtrav.net/photos.html

Holy Smoke!!! Taaz I can't believe you've done all this...It is really nice!!! It's great actually. I'm still breathless...The page really looks terrific!Thank you!

Few questions One most important. Can I still go through site builder to add the text or When I need to edit pages, or I want to add or change my samples ? I don't know enough about doing it on my own yet to depend on my own resources. I still need site builder. And of course I would have to go through all the pages and change the formatting on them...I'm sure I would need sitebuilder for that.

Glad you like it -- NO! ... don't go thru SiteBuilder to do any editing; copy/paste the entire code into your HTML Editor and do everything in there; save your file; then upload to SiteBuilder.

You no longer need Yahoo SiteBuilder; after seeing you own your domain, I'm going to take you another step forward.

What you need now, is what's commonly called an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client -- it's what I've been using for several years and find it's one of the easiest to set-up and use ... not only that, but you can download their Free edition from here

Just follow their easy instructions to set it up and we'll go from there.

Taaz, I've run into a snag. I'm working on the sidebar text, and when I click review in the HTML editor, it brings me to paypal. What am I doing wrong???

Without seeing your code, I honestly can't answer you -- like I said; PayPal is tricky at best.
