I've 'Googled' until I'm blue in the face but am still without answers so any help would be a relief. I'm building a site and have come to the place where I need to insert my Privacy Policy, TOS, etc.
Now the problem:
1. I've got all the required docs on my hard drive. I'm not understanding HOW to connect them via linking so that they come up when they are chosen.
2. I've tried linking on NuV and also Filezilla and it doesn't work so it's obvious I don't understand
how each piece is connect to the other.
If anyone could explain to this semi-newbie the exact steps, IE: Step1, 2, etc it would be MOST appreciated.
Thanks,
Pokey1

What software are you using to build your site? In FrontPage, for example, you would highlight the words you want to be clickable, then right click and edit the hyperlink properties, which is the path to the pages you want to display. The pages to display are saved as ".htm" and uploaded to the webhost. Clear as mud?

Will assume the documents are in the root directory and will be in same directory when uploaded.

2. I've tried linking on NuV and also Filezilla and it doesn't work so it's obvious I don't understand how each piece is connect to the other.

The links should look like this in the HTML coding:

<a href="file_name1.html" title="Privacy Policy">Privacy Policy</a>
<a href="file_name2.html" title="TOS">TOS</a>


If you are using NVU, let me know as I have it installed and can get you through the steps. Otherwise, post what editor you are using. Personally, I would not recommend using FrontPage or even Word to make a web page.

Ron, I'm not crazy about FP either, but most people start with it, and lots of programs "resemble" it. (WYSIWYG editors) I used FP as an example.

Oh, I wasn't going against what you said. NVU is the better WYSIWYG Editor as it makes nice clean code for the pages. If OP is using FP, I am more then happy to let you lead them through the steps. :)

P.S. The Leather Lady? That I would love to see. :) :wave: I'm sure it's related to selling. :)

Ron, thanks for the reply.
Okay, now we're getting somewhere.

BUT....(ain't there always one of those!!)..mine are NOT in the root directory. Soooo I need help in putting them there. What's the first step, then the second, etc.

YES...I'm using NuV so if you can walk me though the steps that would be FANTASTIC!
Once through then I can do the rest. (Hopefully )
Thanks,
Pokey1

PS...okay you folks start talking about chains next and that's more than I want to know! :)

PSS....thanks to BOTH of you for your responses as this has been a pain in the hip pocket finding answers!
