I have created all my pages in blue voda but how do i link all the pages together? where do the names or the urls come from?

Do i publish all the pages before hand? but then how do i find them again?

basically, how do i get all my pages from bv online and linked?

thanks a million, been at this a long while already...Jon

You can make it easy if you watch the linking and publishing video tutorials first......

you need to save your pages with the same name you put in your buttons and thats about it. and then when you click on that buttton it will take you to the right page.....

another thing when you save your pages you need to use only lowercase letters....
after you publish your pages named correctly. you will see that if you verify your links they will ok....

The source code can be viewed at any time, but they would not have access to your server, so no they would not be able to change it on your website.
