I have double checked all the characters, and everything is entered exactly like it's said to. But, when I go to preview the slider an error pops up everytime I click on the back, forward or start over buttons. Something like object expected. Is there something else I need to change in the script?
If I copy and paste it, it doesn't paste right. The language is all different in the HTML, and when I look at the page in normal or preview, it shows the language that was supposed to be pasted into HTML, instead it shows it on the page and there are no pictures or scrollers. Is it because I'm using an older Frontpage program? I have typed everything exactly like is says, 3 times and I get the same thing every time. Another thing it does, is it automatically changes things in the HTML after I go to preview it. For example: Where it says:
I type in my pictures, then when I preview it then go back to the HTML it shows:
This is not the only area that keeps changing. Is it supposed to automatically change?
By using a plain text editor (e.g. Notetab) or better still CuteHTML which I myself use and find excellent. This means that you have to write out your own code rather than relying on some ghastly generator to do it for you. But this is really the only way to proceed if you are to learn how to do it properly, rather than blindly copying scripts and trying to paste them into your HTML as generated by Frontpage. As you have seen, Frontpage messes things up if you add extra code to it.
I did hand enter the script through Macroscript Editor originally after I saw the copy paste function didn't work. That's were I am, and it still changes it. I guess I just need to find another software program to design my site. Thanks for the help.
Yes, yes and yes. Frontpage is absolute rubbish. Indeed, all these code generators are pretty poor. You should hand-code using Notetab or similar text editor.
Years ago I bought Macromedia's Backstage Designer. Same thing -- when it didn't understand something it just threw it away. Frontpage is the same concept -- it tries to "fix" things for you, and it's dumber than a rock. It's what I call User Stupid Software.
