    Yesterday I found out I actually have a domain on my name

    So I started playing with it a little.. I will need some help though, since I don't know HTML or anything about this stuff.. this is what I have now

    Not entirely too bad, huh? so yesterday the picture was still working, not sure why it isn't anymore.. but what I'd like to do is make a second page. So I wrote:

    <P><a href="picturepage.html">some pictures can be found here :)</a></p>

    I have a single folder into which the files can be put, the homepage must be index.html so I made a file picturepage.html and figured the link should work.. but it doesn't :frown: any help?

    Either the link should point to picturepage.html, or the file should be renamed to picturepage.htm.

    OK, I have gotten it to work by deleting the header of the page with the banner :) so the problem must be somewhere in there..

    Is it still not working? Going directly to picturepage.html works for me.

    If I delete everthing and only leave the stuff inside the <!-- End of Header --> and the <!-- Start of Footer -->, the link to the other page works.

    I am a rookie when it comes to writing and reading HTML so I am sure there are redundant and maybe conficting terms in there :P

    I'll try to figure it out though..

    Ah, I see...change your link to point to monique.vandervoet/picturepage.html instead of just picturepage.html. You shouldn't need to in most cases...I'm not sure why it doesn't link to that page.

    it could be this
    <base href="http://.homestudent.uva.nl/">

    try adding monique.vandervoet/at the end like this
    <base href="http://.homestudent.uva.nl/monique.vandervoet/">

    I'll check but I haven't seen this label in the HTML standard [?]

    AHA!

    You both are right, I just tried putting /monique.vandervoet/picturepage.html which is working now. And I'm going to try the smart thing that you also suggested, Guybrush :)

    OUCH! if I change the standard reference address, it won't find the banner of the university anymore, but at least I know what was causing it :)

    So which are the good places to find some HTML code that can be used? Such as background colors, fonts etc?

    For a beginner, your choice of colors is pretty good. Perhaps in the future you can add a forum, and some fun facts on Biology.
