    Default Having problems getting links to work.

    New to using Webstyle, and have just re-built a site with the Webstyle program. My problem is getting ANY links to other pages in my site to work, as well as links to pdf files and some outside links.

    My site is www.vacavillefootball.com

    specific pages are where problems are occuring are :
    http://www.vacavillefootball.com/vars1201.htm (links to other pages)

    http://www.vacavillefootball.com/vars1201.htm (pdf downloads)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated....

    Welcome to TalkGraphics.

    Can you be specific about which links are not working? I have clicked on many of your links and so far everyone is working. This is a user site and volunteers provide help as they can so providing specific details to help identify problems helps us help you.

    There is a problem on the Downloads page. http://www.vacavillefootball.com/downloads.htm I am not able to access any of the links on the drop down menus. Plus the end of the menu bar appears to be cut off. The only thing I can suggest is to make sure your navigation bar is brought to the front (Arrange > Bring to Front) and make sure your nav bar is not going off the page on the right.

    On the whole, I think this is a really excellent and well designed website and shows some really good design sense. I hope you are planning to pursue design as your career.

    Thanks Gary. I obviously did not click on all links on the dropdown menus.

    Some of the dropdown menus have not had links applied to them. Notice the "javascript;" on the status line in one of the images below. That submenu item does not have a URL to link to. Edit the menu in Webstyle to add a link.

    Thanks for the help guys-

    I may not have been as specific as I needed to be in describing my problem. On the drop down menu, if you go to TEAMS - VARSITY - PLAYER PHOTOS, I have 6 pages of player photos which all should be linked together, but the button at the bottom of the page does not work for some reason.

    Also the same problem on the bottom of the page : http://www.vacavillefootball.com/nextgame.htm

    I have a pdf file linked to a download button which does nothing.

    There seems to be something I'm missing when I try to add a button with a link....i can't seem to get them to work.

    On your Next Game page the link to your pdf file is invalid. Your link text reads as: file:index_htm_files/directions%20to%20valley%20christian.pdf which is not a valid URL address.

    As for the varisity photos, are you positive the links at the bottom of the page are formed correctly? Because your pages use code to prevent anyone from right clicking on a page I cannot view your source to see if there is something not correct.

    I was able to run a broken link report on your site:

    Bill -I'm not having any problems with most of these links.

    And our member misspoke himself, I believe he is using Web Designer MX

    tlc - Is there a reason you want to prevent the material on the page from being copied? This seems unnecessary for this kind of site.

    Gary you should not have problems with those links in my post because those are the pages that the broken link is originated not the missing link which is a missing URL.

    It does appear that a combination of Web Designer and Webstyle are being used on the site.

    If you place broken links they wont work. You need to make sure that the path is correct before uploading. Hopes this helps
