Ok First I must admit I am not a mac user Great. Now that thats out of the way let me tell you whats going on.

I had someone I know ask me if I can make a quick edit on their webpage. I primarily deal with wordpress and SEO but I figured it would not be a big issue to change one line of text on his iweb created site.

so I make a backup of his entire site and proceed to edit the one line of text I upload the new file and BAM the page is all messed up. it is no longer displaying his navigation or background. I looked over all the code comparing it to his other pages and nothing is wrong. So I say no problem I will just upload the original file and it will all be fixed. Well I was wrong again. Still the same problem.

I proceeded to check the page in every browser I have.

Firefox - not working correctly
IE - Not working correctly
Opera, Safari, Chrome - Working like a charm.

Anyone have any idea what would be causing this to work on the 3 browsers but not the other 2?

I just want to get this fixed...lol

Thanks

No idea. The HTML that iWeb creates is ugly and over complicated.

You can only edit iWeb content using the iWeb editor on a Mac. Did you use iWeb to do the edit or did you manually do it?

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

I used a plain text editor, conTEXT to be exact. I can understand needing to use iWeb to edit the page, but we are talking 1 line of text. There was no code change what so ever.

And more puzzling is the fact that it works in 3 out of 5 browsers.

Thanks for your help. Anyone else have an idea?

All I can tell you is that iWeb is the worst way to go! Just code the HTML yourself, and you'll avoid a real mess.

I agree with xstep - the content that iWeb creates is needlessly complex. Regardless of that, what did you change? Can you provide us with a sample? What is the URL?

Coding the html is not the issue. I would personally not use iWeb. But they have and that is what they are working with. It is not my site.

As far as what I changed here is an example....


Original Example - Tonights event is closed do to rain

New Example - Tonights event is open as planned.

I simply opened up a text editor, changed the line to reflect the new text, saved and uploaded the file via ftp. When I see that it did not work, I uploaded the original file and the page remained the same. I touched no code just a line of text.
