Radar images in Carter Lakes template
« on: February 01, 2006, 09:58:06 PM »
I am slowly getting my site up.  Had to leave Firefox and make changes in IE.  Anyhow I want to get the radar set up.  How do I find out what the download code is for our local radar site--Sacramento Ca?

Thank you.

Right.  I've pasted it in and it seems to work while I am editing in FrontPage, and I saved the file, however it is not showing up on my site yet.  I'll keep fussing with it.  One of these days I'll figure out some of this stuff  Thanks.

Don't worry, I'm not using your templates, but they are certainly nice ones from what I've seen around the traps.

Here is a copy of the past result:

<div class="picfl" style="width: 466px; height: 292px">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </img>

I'll go back and delete all those &nbsp codes.  I don't know where they came from or what they mean.

Well, you can certainly use FrontPage but keep in mind that it evilly changes the template to it's own ends. I recommend people edit the template with a simple text editor like Notepad. You can then use WD to upload the files (or some other FTP program).

Basic editing of the template is really very simple (in Notepad).

Just a heads up, if you use the URL's I posted you use http and not ftp to get the images for use in WD.  Then use ftp to get the images to your webserver.
