I have a web site which I use to show photos etc to family and friends. Recently NTL cut out (I am on Broadband) while I was uploading a revised Index page. Now when I open the site it shows the old Index page as the homepage, but if I use a drop-down list to navigate to another page, and then use it again to return to the "homepage" I get sent to the new Index page (called Index.html) How can I get rid of the old one? The website is at click here
I confess that I couldn't take that mouse trail for more than a few seconds, but I think you need to upload again. You can only have one index.html file, although browsers will look for index.htm as well.
is the file actually spelt using an upper case 'I' as you have typed here or is it lowercase? if its upper, you will have 2 different index files, and the site will automatically go to the lowercase file for your homepage, you will need to resave the new file as index.html instead of Index.html
I use 1st Page to create the web site, and Terrapin to upload it. I have changed the name of the file to index.html, but the old one is still there as the original homepage. According to Terrapin, there is not another index file. thanks for the responses. gmh
forum Editor - I have tried using Terrapin to find the homepage that loads when the website is first opened - the one with the trailing cursor - but it is not listed, so I can't delete it. The index.html (now renamed) file which loads when I go to the homepage from another page is the one with the trailing cursor removed (and other differences). I am at a loss as to how to get rid of the initial homepage!
Thanks, forum Editor. I had run Crap Cleaner, so thought I had cleared the browser cache. I deleted all the .html files using Terrapin, saved and came out of Terrapin, then went in again and uploaded the .html files again - now the homepage is the latest one.
thanks again gmh
