So you have made your site already? Well, presuming you have, make sure your home page / main page is named index.html (you may have to turn on the option to show filename extensions to check). Connect to your iDisk and find the folder that says sites or homepage (I haven't used .mac for ages... can somebody clarify this?) and drag your files (so that includes index.html and all your other pages and images) from your computer to the idisk folder. That's all. Your site is then accessible from http://homepage.mac.com/username.

ok i did all of htis and its not working.... everythings there but when i go to the site it redirects me to a photo album that doesnt even exist anmore.

kweenelmer 03-03-2004 09:46 PM

now it is saying it doesnt exist...

another question... do i want my pictures to be absolute or relative to the url?

muso 03-04-2004 03:11 PM

Relative. What exactly are you typing into your browser, and what are the filenames of the files on your iDisk?

kweenelmer 03-05-2004 05:52 PM

one of them is is index.html... then there are other various names.

muso 03-05-2004 05:55 PM

And you're typing in http://homepage.mac.com/username/index.html? It sounds like you've put your files in the wrong folder.
