Eric,

I can add an RSS feed to MY Yahoo page if I know the URL. Can I add HST this way also? If so, can you post the URL on the sticky page about instand HST?

Eric, my page reverted back to the way it was before you spruced it up.

That's strange... I haven't touched anything. The issue could be only one of two things:

1) Your hosting company used an old backup version to restore your files.
2) You may have accidently uploaded the old page version.

Can you contact your hosting company to see if they have any idea why this problem would have occured? Let me know what they say. I have a backup of that file that I can email if needed.

Well, it must be number 1 as I don't have the old version anywhere. I'll check with tripod but good luck getting an answer from their customer service any time soon. :)

Problem solved. Just emailed you quick instructions for how to replace the file should this happen again. But, of course, please let me know if I can help. :thumbsup:

It did it again Eric and I can't get an answer from tripod. You e-mailed me a screenshot of how the page is supposed to look but I have no idea how to change it back.

Hey Jody,

Have you made any changes to your website recently? I'm wondering if when you make a change to a certain page, you then update all site files, including an old version of that particular page stored by Tripod or on your computer somewhere. Other than the possibility of this being all Tripod's fault, this is the only other thing I can think of that might be happening. Either way, did you receive my email with instructions for how to fix it yourself when/if this continues to happen? It's really pretty simple. The email would have been dated sometime around July 17, and lists detailed instructions.
:nod:

Eric, I have made changes but am not sure if the page changed before or since. Would it be helpful if I completely deleted the page and then started from scratch?

By the way, I received an e-mail from you on the 17th with a screenshot of how the page should look but no instructions on how to change it.

Whoops... Sorry about that. Could have sworn I included instructions. :retard:

Here they are:

- Click on File Manager tab
- On the drop-down menu with default "upload via", select "single files".
- For "File 1" box, click the browse button and locate the "id36.html" file (the one you called a "screenshot" that I sent in that email. This is the file that needs to be uploaded.
- Checkmark " Allow overwrite**" and click the upload button at the bottom of the page.

That's it. :cool:


Yeah, it wouldn't hurt to start from scratch by deleting the old page before following the above directions. Not sure if that's going to make any difference, or not. But it's worth a shot.
