    help with html

    I know that html, to many people, is not a programming language, but I really need help with my html and my website and I can't get my forms to work properly. Is anyone here good at working with forms for webpages (a form for a message board, similar to these ones, but not as complex)? Please help.

    What problems are you having, can you provide more details...
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    http://geocities.com/webturtle0/dream3.htm - The form page doesn't even show up. The file is called "board.php" and I have a text.css file. I just can't get any of it to work properly.
    Also, the page with the forms is supposed to look like this: http://geocities.com/webturtle0/debate.htm
    but it won't execute correctly. So I have a few probs. thanks.

    You'll have to use that gay page builder provided by geocities to do forms.

    Ask the domain if they support php. Or you may be screwed.

    its not the domain you need to ask, its the host(server). sometimes u get the domain at the same place, but usually not(IMO)

    Alright, now I think I need more help. Another thing I can't figure out how to do is open up the links from the very left menu into the "updates and content" section on the right ( http://geocities.com/webturtle0/dream3.htm ). Can someone help with that? thanks.

    for each link, make a new page identical to that of ur homepage EXCEPT, for iframe name="glowna"(if thats the one ur talking about) make the src="http://www.thesiteyouwanttolink"

    and make pages like that for each site u want the link to show up in that iframe, and in the left menu link to the pages u made

    hmmmm....I only understand about half of that. Could you give me some html code examples? I tried it, and it's not working right. I still don't think I'm doing it correctly.

    ok the target IFRAME you are talking about has the name="glowna", that is in the properties of the <iframe> tag, also within the iframe tage is the src= property or in essence what you want to be inside the iframe(the html file)...all you have to do is something like say for isntance u want to make the www.cprogramming.com come up in that iframe....make a new file call it cprog.htm...in this file make an exact copy of your homepage....in the "glowna" iframe change the src to
    Code:
    src="http://www.cprogramming.com/"
    and then on ur original home page change the link on the left menu to point to that cprog.htm page.....and do this exact thing for all the sites u want to link to
