Hi,

I have created my company's website using iWeb. I want the logo on the top of each page (which is a jpeg image) to be a hyperlink that points to the homepage. It works in iWeb itself, but when I publish the site and click "Visit Site Now", only one of the page's logo hyperlinks work (Out of 8).
Can anyone help me with this?
FYI, I have not yet published the site on my server. It still needs a few tweaks. Do you think it will work when on the server?
Many thanks,

Nigel

The ones that don't work don't go any where. They just don't do anything.
The one that does work goes to the correct page...

Sounds like your pathing is wrong. Are you using relative or absolute?

Also, on a side note.. Using an image for your company logo link is bad for a few reasons. It's not accessible and does not help with SEO. Try using a text link inside an H1. As that is the most important part of your site. Search engines really like to see text links and order of importance with content. So may I suggest using sprites:

CSS:
Code:
h1#logo {
    margin:0;
}
h1#logo a {
    text-indent:-9999px;
    display:block;
    background: transparent url(../images/logo.gif) no-repeat top center;    
    height:67px;
    width:70px;
}
HTML:
Code:
<h1 id="logo"><a href="default.php">Company Name</a></h1>
