alright, I have this website: http://dhost.info/DarkStorm/index.html

and I have 2 files on there that keep messing up horribly ( index.html and DSNews.html)

Now, lets just use my DSNews.html file as the main point ( http://dhost.info/Da...orm/DSNews.html )

Alright, the DSNews file's code used to be this:

<title>Dark Storm News</title>

<body bgcolor="000000" text="009999" link="ff0000" alink="F0F8FF" vlink="999999"></body>

<STYLE type="text/css">
    BODY {scrollbar-3dlight-color:#000000;
          scrollbar-arrow-color:#DC143C;
          scrollbar-base-color:#000000;
          scrollbar-track-color:#000000;
          scrollbar-darkshadow-color:#000000;
          scrollbar-face-color:#008080;
          scrollbar-highlight-color:#A9A9A9;
          scrollbar-shadow-color:#7F7F7F}
  </STYLE>

The Titles section of Dark Storm is now open.  Included on this page is a link to the profile<br>
for The End of All.  I will try to compleate a whole section for T.E.A. soon<br>

But I changed it to this recently:

<title>Dark Storm News</title>

<body bgcolor="000000" text="009999" link="ff0000" alink="F0F8FF" vlink="999999"></body>

<STYLE type="text/css">
    BODY {scrollbar-3dlight-color:#000000;
          scrollbar-arrow-color:#DC143C;
          scrollbar-base-color:#000000;
          scrollbar-track-color:#000000;
          scrollbar-darkshadow-color:#000000;
          scrollbar-face-color:#008080;
          scrollbar-highlight-color:#A9A9A9;
          scrollbar-shadow-color:#7F7F7F}
  </STYLE>

Merry Christmas Eve to all.  Tomorrow is the day a lot of you wait for all year.  Hope<br>
you all have a great Christmas tomorrow.<br>
<br>
Anyways, as some of you might be able to see, the site has undergone a slight change, and a<br>
"Polls" Section has been added to the new menu on the left.  There's still problems that need to<br>
be solved (ie: Problems with the page not displaying correctly if your monitor is less than<br>
800X600 Pixels, and if your browser window is not maxamized. Also problems will occur on some pages if your text size is not set to "Medium") But these problems will be solved in time.<br>

Now, for some reason, when I go to my site, it acts as if it's loading my old DSNews.html file sometimes ( same goes for the index.html file )

I even went to view >>> Source to see if maybe it keeps mistakenly loading only part of the page, but to my surprise, the code it's self seems to revert back to a now non existint file.

Finally I just went to my FTP, to Download the file from there and see which way it should really be, and it is in fact the 2nd code I posted. So does anyone know wehre the original/old (non existint) code could be coming from...

I've had people testing my site over and over, and I seem to be the only one viewing this problem. I deleted my temporary internet files and my cookies, yet this problem persists.

So please, if you have any idea as to what might be causing this or a way to solve it, please respond here, it would be greatly appricated :cheers:

Nevermind. It has stopped acting up and is back to normal, but I also change the URL of the website, so the ones above will not work...

perhaps it just needed sometime to refresh itself

but with regards to your code. you have this
<body bgcolor="000000" text="009999" link="ff0000" alink="F0F8FF" vlink="999999"></body>


HTML formatting goes likes this:
<html>
<header><title></title>
</header>
<body>
content goes here
</body>
</html>

So, a correct code of your "second page" would be this

<html>
<header>
<title>Dark Storm News</title>
<STYLE type="text/css">
    BODY {scrollbar-3dlight-color:#000000;
          scrollbar-arrow-color:#DC143C;
          scrollbar-base-color:#000000;
          scrollbar-track-color:#000000;
          scrollbar-darkshadow-color:#000000;
          scrollbar-face-color:#008080;
          scrollbar-highlight-color:#A9A9A9;
          scrollbar-shadow-color:#7F7F7F}
  </STYLE>
<body bgcolor="000000" text="009999" link="ff0000" alink="F0F8FF" vlink="999999">

Also, the <style> tags go inside the <header> tags.
