View Full Version : red x when previewing page

07-15-2006, 02:04 AM
I'm sorry to post this again, but maybe I had it in the wrong thread (adding elements in blue voda--i first put it there because i had the problem when adding images)

I'm really about to scream and give up over this! I just started working with BlueVoda yesterday and read everything I could and watched the tuts SEVERAL times.....I'm working on a blank page, add shapes and insert my images just as the tuts say...named the page, saved it, etc. But when I go to preview, all I see are outlines of the shapes and red x. I tried every setting I can think of on my browser (IE). I even turned off the firewall at one point!

Please, please someone help me figure out what is missing? I really suspect it is my computer, but I don't know how to find it! I even googled and microsoft red x problems and tried as many fixes as I could.

Please point me in the right direction so I can continue with this! THanks so much,

Dear Tammy,

Is it only the images that are not showing? Or the whole page that you try to preview?

The whole page I guess? All that i have on the page is a gray square i added with the shape tool and an image I inserted with the insert image tool. In bluevoda, both are fine, but when i click "preview in browser" and it opens in the IE browser,all i get are two black line boxes with a red x in each one.

Also, in IE at the top it says "untitled page" instead of "index" which is what I saved the page as.

I really feel silly ...i'm just not sure what i did wrong and I've tried to redo it several times, following the tut. thanks for responding.

Dear Tammy,

Well ... jeeezz, you lost me here, hehe. I have no clue whats going on right now you're going to have to wait for someone elses reply unless you try a New Page without copy or paste. Then save it as index.

Then preview it and see if that works.

thanks for trying anyway! i did NOT copy and paste the images, though. I used the shape tool in Bluevoda to insert the square and the insert image tool for the picture, which i saved in the same folder. This is just a test page to see if I can do this web thing! I saved the page and tried to preview it...

wah!!! oh well, tomorrow is a new day. I really suspect it is my browser but for the life of me i don't know what. maybe i will wake up with a revelation! LOL

Dear Tammy,

Funny stuff - well, some of it is fustrating, hehe. Anyway! Just wondering, what kind of website are you planning on making? What's the purpose it's going to serve if you don't mind saying?
