    Does anyone know how to do HTML well? Cause i'm on a good start for my site but I don't know how to HTML and I need help! If I learn how to html then I can switch over to bravenet and I hear they have a pretty good deal! ^ ^ PLEASE HELP!

    Try asking your question in the "Web Site" forum. The "getting started" forum is for those who don't understand this web site. ;)

    Heh, good point. I'll move it over. :thumbsup:

    What is your site about, and what do you want included in it? I'm not very good with HTML (I refer to online tutorials every time I need a function), but it would help others assist you if they know what it is they would code.

    May I suggest you send a PM to Black_Kat... she is one of my favorite people and did all of her pages from HTML.

    but a program like frontpage expres (I linked it in the help forum) can let you create the page easily... then you can copy and paste the code to bravenet

    Have you given Frontpage a try?

    Although it's probably not the "best" solution, it does seem easy enough to use, and you can make a web site using it's site wizard. :D

    Ok I will try it. Is topcities good? Just wondering because I got an account there and it seems pretty hard to use.

    Topcities has direct FTP access which is goood... you can load a program onto your computer to make this whole pocess OR check something... can you create a folder in your account? if you can create folders it makes everything easy :)....

    1. Download >>FRONTPAGE EXPRESS<<
    2. Use it to make a page with links to your songs on it (make sure that anything you link is saved in the same folder as your page... and make sure that its properties only have the name of the song like "steel1.mp3" not a complicated address on your hard drive like "C:\documents\fpexpress\etcetra"... if it does have the long one just delete all the crap before the song name... OH... and I'm online a LOT these days... so if you want "live" assistance PM me with some instant message details and I'll help you through it
    3. put the page you create, the mp3's that you link to, and any graphics you use ALL in that folder
    4. Create the same folder in your topcities account that uses the same name as the one on your hard drive
    5. Use their java-upload tool to put all of the files from YOUR folder into THEIR folder

    Good luck with your website but from my own experience i wouldn't touch Topcities with the proverbial bargepole :mad:
    I had a site with them a while back which was accidentally deleted 3 times without explanation...they hadn't even the courtesy to answer my emails as to why the files kept going missing...and no they were'nt illegal either :gee:
    But hey it's your call and again..hope it turns out well !
