Hello, I have a text link to payment on my home page, this works fine in preview but not when the page is published .
Also I have added three new pages to my web site. I have added them in the same way as the original ones.
the added payment navigation button works fine.
terms and conditions (not working) I have tried changing the page url to ( terms) but still no good.
portion guide (not working) I have also tried changing the url to (portion) This is how I have entered the information:

http://www.cakeswithadifference.net/terms.html

Is this correct or can you see a mistake?
Thank you

The payment link works fine. It might just be your browser caching. The Terms_&_conditions: try eliminating the & : make it "terms_conditions" in the button, and also save the page as "terms_conditions"

Thank you I will try that.

Could you have a look at my contact page please? I have followed the instruction and I am getting there for my form.
I have copied the scrip from Alien Dude who has been very kind in helping me.
For some reason I have some of his details now on my page.
I did replace the text in the html and can not see where this information is coming from.
all the information in the html is mine, could it be hiding somewhere else for this to happen?
Thank you so much
PS, I have just paste and copied the url for payment text as above, do I put it as seen above?
not working

Thank you. payment linkworking well.
The part on my page ,above the question box say
"Thank you for your ufo report" this come up once you hit the submit button.its behind the name box and across the page, although I did edit the script so this didn't happen.
The text in the question box I can put right.
As far as the other link buttons I have tried everything, when you say that the browser could be caching , how to I stop that because may be thats the problem.
Thank you

This is for certain part of the script, and is the Thankyou message that Alien has used. He can help you or you can just upload the script and i'll have a look at it

Thank you again.

Upload the script: i meant to upload the code here, i can't see the code of a php script on your site. Or if you want, go to my form in http://www.navaldesign.info/feedback13.html There is an Upload field. Use it to send me the script.

To resolve your problem with the two buttons, go in Blue FTP, connect, and see how the two pages are uploaded on your site. Then change the links of the buttons accordingly.

FTP? sorry to be so stupid!

In BV, > Tools, > FTP Manager. When it comes up, click on the upper Left "Connect". Enter your username and password, it will connect to your site. At the right part of your screen you will see your pages, as well as all the images you have uploaded. Scroll down, find the two pages and make sure what their names are. Change the kėlinks in your buttons accordingly.

Hello again, I have been into FTP the button names can not be re-named on the right hand side can they? but Terms & Conditions is written as such. Is there any way I can change this & to _ ? if not shall I remove these added buttons and start again from scratch?
What do you think would be best.
Thank you for your time.

No, open the terms and conditions page in BV and save it as "termsandconditions" . Publish it. Open the "portions-gude" page and save it as "portionguide". Publish it. Change the links in the buttons accordingly.

Otherwise give me your password and username and i'll rename the pages to suit your buttons links. If you like me to do so, use my form to pass me the username and password, don't post them here

Ok, now your terms_&_conditions and cake-portion-guide pages are accessible from your homepage. But you still have to correct the links in the two buttons in the other pages. F.e. in your home page the link is terms_&_conditions.html but in the page itself it is terms_and_conditions. Make them all like in your home page.

Thank you very, very much.
Is it possible to copy and paste them from my home page into the other pages?
Thank you, you have been so very helpful.

You can either copy / paste the whole menu bar, or just copy (one at a time) the URLs, then go from page to page, edit the button link, save the page and republish. Attention: you need to also save the terms_&_conditions and the cake-portion-guide pages with these names, but do not republish them. They are already there.
