View Full Version : "Correcting a HTTP 404 Not Found" error

05-13-2006, 02:34 AM
I have published 3 pages Home-Contact-About Tea. I can open the first or Home page but when I click Contact or About Tea get "HTTP 404 not found"
I have published both of these from BV.
How can I correct this?

Thanks, Bill

Greetings Bill-

Your site is:

Couple questions: you did publish each page to the public_html folder?

What are the exact names of each page? Contact or contact? About Tea or abouttea or About_Tea?

The home page you have named index and it is working as I was able to pull up your site.

So make sure your links match exactly the name of your pages. I suggest that you connect via the FTP Manager and make sure your pages are there.

Doing a little experimenting I found our pages.

You named the contact page: contact us and the other about tea

So if you were to provide a link it would be as follows;
http://www.blueearthtea.com/contact_us.html **making sure to put the underscore _ between words as a space

Also, noticed on the source code of your form that your check boxes are not named. If they don't have a
specific (and different) name to each - it will not be reported to you.


**By the way- the site looks really nice

Thank you Andy,
Changing the links worked fine from the Home page.

Appreciate the feedback on site. Bill

The checked boxes have been named, thanks.

From "Home" or index page I can click on "Contact" and "About Tea", but from "Contact" I can only click on "Home", if I click on "About Tea" the HTTP 404 error pops up again.

This doesn't happen from "About Tea" clicking on "Contact" did i overlook something?

I can connect from one to the other in all combinations with no problem.

Perhaps you need to refresh your browser. Hit the F5 key repeatedly a number of times to re-fresh or simply delete your temp internet files.

Looks good though! Post it in the website preview section when your ready.
