I hope someone can help with this, as suggested on another post I have changed the site to three pages to stop overlaping.
I now have a navigation bar and I can't make it work.It's ok for home page
but wont display for the other two.
I have used the full url with page 2 & 3 html as I understand the tutorial this is correct.Am I doing something wrong? also no matter how many times I alter the page properties for the pages to fit, in preview it keeps going really long and just makes up it's own as what size it wants to be.
Am I also doing something wrong on this.?
I hope you can help cause it's driving me nuts.

Open your BlueFTP, connect to your site, and see WHERE and HOW you have published your pages, then adjust the menubar links accordingly

Thanks naveldesign
I did that but still not right I can go from the home page to page 2 & 3
but not backwards and forwards from them except back to home page
in other words I can't go to 3 from two and visa virsa.Is there something else I shoud do?

Never mind, i found out what the problem is: your second page is called "page 2 html" and of course it is published as "page 2 html.html". Your third page is saved as "page3html" and published as "page3html.html"

This is all wrong. it is confusing even for the more experienced. Please do this: open your pages in BV. Save your second page with a logical name, f.e. "dogalogue". In the menubars, in ALL pages, this page has to be linked as "www.catpetalogue.com/dogalogue.html (http://www.catpetalogue.com/dogalogue.html)" . Your third page: call it "petalogue". the link in the menu bars, in ALL pages, for this page should be: "www.catpetalogue.com/petalogue.html (http://www.catpetalogue.com/petalogue.htmlm)"

The link to your homepage, in the menubars of ALL pages, should be "www.catpetalogue.com (http://www.catpetalogue.com/)" . Save all three pages (the first one is called "index"). Publish them and everything will work.

page length usually will follow the last image or text on the bottom of the page, although you set your page very short but if there was an image/text down on the bottom, the page still very long.
check again your page, i am sure there was either text or empty text on the bottom of your page

Hi Again
found an image way down on third page and removed it I also moved things about a bit to see if it overcomes the overlaping problem.I have checked all the page properties and guide settings they all seem right but I can't see any change in preview on the home page still very long.Is it possible for you to check my site to see if is any different ?Thanks if you can

I view source of your first page, and i found this
<DIV style="position:absolute;left:530px;top:2439px;width:150p x;height:16px;z-index:27" align="left">
&nbsp;
</DIV>
that means there is something in position 2439px, that is why you can not set your page less than that.
try to check again like this:

open your page on bluevoda
set page properties for the height 2500 or more
click edit => select all, there you will see there are many blank text box on the bottom of your page. delete it

Well,this is because there are a few blank spaces (text) far down your home page. You don't see them because, as i said, they are just blank spaces. go in BV, open your page, go in View > Object Outlines. This will make them visible. Temporarily set the page height to f.e. 3000 so BV will allow you to scroll down enough to see and delete these blank spaces. After deletion, set your page height again in the correct number, Checl also the width number. save the page and re-publish. If you wish, make the line (the one the cat is walking on) a bit narrower. This will allow you to center your page.

I had a look and although there was nothing visible - i tried, on a hunch, to do a click drag back across the very bottom. I found a small square which I copied. When I pasted it there was all sorts of stuff in there. Gifs, purple buttons, ads..... I'd try loassoing the whole bottom of your page and deleting it - see if that works.

use object outline if you want to delete one by one.
enable object outline=> click the object and delete it

Please follow these excact steps in BV:
1. Open your page.
2. Go in Page properties and set the page height in 3000
3. Scroll down to the part of the page where your content ends, that is excactly under your counter
4. Click on the very left end of the page, and hold down the mouse button. Drag the mouse pointer towards the very - very bottom right hand corner. This is what the "lasoo" is.
5. At this point all these strange objects will be selected, and you can delete them.

Alternatively: Go in View, and click on Object Outlines. Follow steps 1 - 2.
Now simply scrolling down the page, you will be able to see some small rectangles, that are the outlines of the objects to delete. Simply select them one by one and delete them.

There is nothing on the page except a small black line which will not delete.
I have tried both ways .could it be that in the first instance when I used object outline and deleted a lot of rectangles that they are somehow still there.They are definatley not visible from here.I'm sorry if this is frustrating you but imagine how it is for me.I fell like an idiot because I can't see what you see and therefore getting nowhere.

Use my form in http://www.navaldesign.info/feedbacl13.html . Send me the original bv file. I will correct it and send it back to you. Open the new version with BV, save it on your computer in place of your original index page, and publish it. Of course, all this if you want me to do it.

I think will be much more easy if you just create new page, copy the image which is you want to use from the old page and paste it in new page
