It's displaying the HTML rather than the text.

I haven't even tried uploading images or anything.

Some of your code like at the bottom is like this: <p>&lt;3 Dreamhost.</p>. The &lt; will put " < " (without quotes) on the page. This page (www.gamerunknown.com/woot.htm) is doing the same. Using &lt; and &gt; will cause your code to display like: "<BODY bgcolor="white">" . You set the frameset code on this page for the same reason.

You also have three major errors on http://www.gamerunknown.com/:

HTML Validator result
----------------------
http://www.gamerunknown.com/

line 1 - Error: no document type declaration; implying "<!DOCTYPE HTML SYSTEM>"
line 17 column 7 - Error: required attribute "TYPE" not specified
line 177 column 43 - Error: "IF" is not a reserved name
line 179 column 10 - Error: "ENDIF" is not a reserved name
4 errors / 0 warnings

Same with http://www.gamerunknown.com/woot.htm:

line 1 - Error: no document type declaration; implying "<!DOCTYPE HTML SYSTEM>"
line 5 column 6 - Error: document type does not allow element "BODY" here
line 289 column 7 - Error: end tag for "HTML" which is not finished
3 errors / 0 warnings

Are you doing your page in FrontPage or Word? Would get out of doing it in either. Try a regular editor like Notepad or a HTML Editor. If you don't know how to hand code, try NVU (a WYSIWYG Editor).

I imported some code from freewebs (written in notepad I think), and copied a document into FrontPage, since I thought it would be easier than making it a HTML file. I think I better work with a "What you see"... Because these ones haven't been working.

I tried looking at the HTML section of Frontpage, but when I do, it's far too complex for me. I have a headache right now xP.

Thanks for your suggestion, hopefully I'll be able to work out what I've planned for the site. *goes off to download NVU*

Hi:

I think you'll like NVU. It's free and there are other free WYSIWYG editors available. Just Google for 'em.

Cheers...

How do I add a sidebar?

I created a table with links in it and on my freewebs site I scripted it like this:

<frameset cols="25%,75%">
<frame src="HTML.htm">
<frame src="HTML2.htm">
</frameset>

But whenever I add that part to <>Source, it doesn't show up as purple and then it disappears. I even tried started a whole new document. =(

Also, do you know how to create banners that show an image from a cache at random and how to make custom buttons >.>? The above question is more important though, I'll probably figure out the rest on my own once I've made the sidebar.

Are we running with the site from post #1 or is this new stuff totally? Your original site looks better, but you still have some coding errors:

http://www.gamerunknown.com/

line 1 - Error: no document type declaration; implying "<!DOCTYPE HTML SYSTEM>"
line 17 column 7 - Error: required attribute "TYPE" not specified

line 179 column 10 - Error: "ENDIF" is not a reserved name
4 errors / 0 warnings

You still have this at bottom of page:

<p>&lt;3 Dreamhost.</p>

which will show as: <3 Dreamhost.

I do <3 Dreamhost though >.>

Well, I've updated it yet again, to try and get "http://www.gamerunkn...m/Sidebar.html" to work from www.gamerunknown.com/index.htm...

Didn't happen. From view source, you should be able to find out what went wrong. Thanks.

You still have errors. Your page www.gamerunknown.com/index.htm is not set up as a frame page.

On your index.html page:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Frameset//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR...-frameset.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta name="generator" content="HTML Tidy for Windows (vers 1st December 2004), see www.w3.org" />
<title> blah-blah </title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=us-ascii" /> Use what suits you
<meta http-equiv="keywords" content=" keywords here " />
<meta http-equiv="description" content=" Facts about this page here. " />
<link href=" Path to CSS here " rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>
<frameset cols="25%,75%">
<frame name="content" src="Sidebar.html" scrolling="auto" frameborder="0" noresize="noresize" />
</frameset></html>

I used

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Frameset//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR...-frameset.dtd">

but you can check at Recommended Lists of DTDs for a transitional one in HTML 4.01.

Your coding problems on Sidebar.html:
