Hello. I am having MAJOR problems with AOL Hometown Easy Designer. Everything starts out working just fine. But then, over time, it gives me less and less access for editing. Now I can't access any of it at all for editing. The only answer I got from AOL Tech was Delete it and make another.

I didn't delete it but made another site. Same thing as before.

Does anybody know what I can do?

Has anybody had similar problems? I have found a few others. If any of you are having trouble, please email me. I am collecting documentation to be presented to Easy Designer Management and/or Programming.

Thank you Richard Graefe

Hi Richard

This is not the most helpful answer - but, in the longer term, it's the only one; leave AOL.

There are lots of reason for this (see the discussion at http://www.newbieclub.com/discuss/messages/4/55.html?972108179) but the main one is that your site will not display properly (if at all) to anyone who isn't using AOL.

Sorry not to be more constructive but, as their answer to your question demonstrates, they really are that bad.

Jamie, Thank you for the info. I am now beginning to understand some about my problems and why I can't get any answers from AOL.

To everyone - Please let me know who, other than AOL, you would vote for as being the best Internet Srevice Provider (ISP). Please post and/or email me.

Thank You

Richard Graefe zse45@aol.com (soon to change)

Another one to stay away from is ATT Canada. They ripped me for a lot of money, even though I got free unlimited internet access when I purchased my Dell computer.
It's a long story, but suffice to say, no customer service, long waits to get customer service, and snide and insesitive response when you do get to talk to a so-called rep.
Anyone know who to email at ATT Canada to talk to, about this problem.

Can anyone tell me the many advantages of having front page 2000 over front page express to create a nice looking web site for my teenage daughters gymnastics site?

Thanks, Robert

RE: FP
Front page 2000 has many more functions and abilities than the free express version.

I was once convinced that FP was the only HTML editor and WYSIWIG web page builder that was worth having. Until I downloaded a trial version of NetObjects Fusion 5.0.

Believe me, you will never look back at Frontpage after using NetObjects.

It is truly a great web page builder. Bar None!

Check it out, download a free trial version, you'll be building professional web sites in minutes! Honest!

You can get one at netobjects.com, Try it, you'll like it... tell em' I sent you... ;-)

I am having trouble with viewing my web page
that is under construction. My computer from Gateway came with two browsers installed,
Netscape and IE, and IE uses AOL for browsing.
I must have somehow deleted AOL from my computer
because the progam file says empty.

Now What? Do I load one of the CDs(AOL 6.0)
I keep getting in the mail? Are not these only
trial versions? What is the difference between the AOL that came with IE when I purchased my computer
and the trial version CD?

Robert;
First off, are you using AOL for connecting to the Internet?

IE does not use AOL. You can view AOL sites with IE.

The IE and Netscape browsers that came with your gateway computer are full versions. You can use either one. My preferrence is IE. It's just what I use.

When you say you are having trouble viewing your web page, you're going to have to elaborate on that.

Can you open it up at all?
What do you man by 'trouble'?

Catchup;
Thanks for taking the time to help out!
Actually, my problem is with my newly purchased Frontpage 2000. When I first loaded it on it worked fine. As a matter of fact it still works fine as far as the tools etc. are concerned.
However when I recently sat down to open a web in progress that is under my saved web file list, I am greeted with a popup message that says"cannot find webserver at OEM computer on port 80. Please
make sure web server is valid and proxy settings are correct."

I pay earthlink for internet access and I have two choices for browsing. My netscape works fine, but I cannot browse when I click on my IE browser.
When I do attmpt this, the IE browser window is brought up with the aol link in the address bar and a message saying this page cannot be displayed
unable to find server!

When your FP2000 program is saying this, it means your server on your computer is not fired up.

You have to find it and turn it on. Look for it in your FrontPage folder.

This is one of the reasons I switched to NetObjects Fusion. no hastles, no problems, (well most of the time) ;-)

When you fire up IE, (which you should be using as default) try typing in another address in the address bar and hit "Go", see what happens.

I use DellHost for my website. Nothing to gripe about but I do not like their webpage templates, Trellix, and their merchant program. For my next website I am considering bCentral from Microsoft. Any comments? I cannot get any information re the website templates, I do know they use FrontPage, and do not allow FTP. I want a upscale, professional site and I want to be part of the process. Any suggestions? I have in my possession NetObjects Fusion and am not that impressed by their templates for websites. I want something plain that I can design. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Marilyn Lee

I took catchup's advice about netobjects,it works great, but I need to know how the shopping cart is put on your site,before I get my hosting. it sounds pretty complicated, Any info would be great
