What am I doing wrong? using Netscape Composer, I go to HTML source and paste in the contents of the box found here click here but I do not get any snowflakes. Also if it did work I'm not sure how to chane the bits as directed. Could somebody explain in as basic a fashion as possible? Thanks!
Oh dear! I really don't know what I'm doing wrong!! I did the bit that Taran suggested and in "Normal" view I just got the words:- html> Test page for snow flakes script But no snowflakes (& I did change the background to blue so that they would show). What exactly did you mean by "I used notepad" ? At the moment I am 1. selecting all(entire contents of scrolling box on web page given) and copying 2. Opening composer and clicking on HTML Source Page 3.Pasting entire contnet of the box, directly above the bit that says, "</body></html> " I don't have SP2 installed, I don't know anything about Java (XP HOme SP1 running) The working page is great but I don't know what to do with it! (pity it isn't a downloadable animation I could cope with that!) Consider me a challenge!!
The sample page opens in IE6, which is my default browser. I don't have an MS web page design package, so I use Composer on a WYSIWYG basis, which is easy for a beginner (and was free). I didn't do anything with the sample page other than view it. If I paste the script into the HTML page I get nothing in Normal or Preview mode, if I do what scotty suggested I get the words html> Test page for snow flakes script In both normal and preview mode. I would try the publishing thing but (ashamed to say) I don't know how to do it :(
Am following your advice but for time being using about it is:- Netscape 7.1 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Netscape/7.1 (ax) Good grief it worked!!! (didn't change the background colour though so may be it is a question of "layers" and I had put the background colour on top of it. Off to see if it works with a background- also to try and change the snowflake variables!! (HO HUM!) THANKS!!!
OK- I have colourd backgrounds and snow falling, final question (I p[romise!) when I load pics and animations on to Ebay I have to host them online so I use Photobucket. Using the page I have now created i sthe snow stored on my hard drive? In which case where do I have to host it? (photo bucket only takes pic files as far as I can see). Thanks, father Christmas will be good to you this year!!
