Let me start over because I am new to this. I downloaded a free to use template that uses HTML / CSS / JS. I edited what I need to in notepad then uploaded using a free ftp program. I am mainly experimenting right now trying to learn what I am doing more fully. After uploading to the godaddy servers I typed in my website address and receive the user authentication prompt. Not sure where this is coming from. Thanks for all the help and hopefully this explains everything a little better.
OK, that sent me to a page that offers a number of experimental templates. I downloaded Big Picture to take a look and although it's a brief scan through, I can't see anything wrong with those files. In fact in my opinion, they are very nice work.
They're essentially written as grids in html5. So how you've arrived in this situation, remains a bit of a mystery.
Did you change the default name of the page index.html to anything else?
That's about the only thing I can think of at the moment that may be the cause this problem.
If you loaded the theme directory (in full) into your hosting services root folder, that's probably the cause of your problem.
You need to copy the contents of the directory (not the directory itself) into your root directory. index.html must be in the severs root directory.
If you have full control over the server, then you can make exceptions, but if it's a hosted proposition, I doubt you have that level of flexibility.
Sorry for the delay, but I've been out of the country for a few days on a job, and PCA wouldn't let me log-in. In fact, it was dreadfully slow and no other UK sites I use were like it. So it wasn't the connection.
