    Cool Unable to Link pages (2)

    I'm a rookie and flying by the seat of my tutorials. I have created a website and work-in-progress: www.lookingformymojo.com I have published the first page......piece o' cake. I can't get the second page to link (www.lookingformymojo.com/updates) and I know I'm a click away. I've linked them in my navigation menus as index.htm. and updates.html. When I preview the pages I can link from Updates back to the Home page, but not the Home page to Updates. My brain is liquified. I have save them as .bvp..............I've been struggling over this since last evening...........and people wonder why I drink.

    Cool Re: Unable to Link pages (2)

    Guess I need some 'hand holding'. I only save the Home page as .bvp? When I click 'save as' it defaults to .bvp - my only other option is All File (*.*) When I chose it, it defaults back to bvp. I'm not normally a stupid person, but I just spent a lot of $ getting my hair colored and it's already turning gray. Everything was smooth until now. Please explain as if you're talking to a complete moron..........thanks.

    Use "save as" and delete everything before .bvp
    insert the name...(i.e.: pagename ).......finished item should look like this

    pagename.bvp (save it)

    the next time you want to save the page just hit save and BV will always add the .bvp to the end of the name.

    Robin

    Have you changed the link on your index/home page yet ?¿

    It should be: http://www.lookingformymojo.com/updates.html

    All your other links seem to be working fine..........Let me know when you find your Mojo..........lol

    David, my mojo is still eluding me...............this one task has brought me to a complete halt. So much for finding my 'mojo' and riding the motivation train.

    I was just informed via BlueVoda support that I need to edit index.html, add a hyperlink and set the hyperlink to /updates.html, save and republish. Geeze.......I don't recall seeing that anywhere in the tutorials. The hyperlink tutorial relates to creating links from specific images and specific lines of text - not the whole page. I literally need to go back to my 'home' page and do what?
    Call me stupid.......

    David,
    P.S. Why did I create a navigation bar? How does a second task of hyperlinking relate to it all?

    Hi stupid..................well you did ask..............lol

    Do as support have told you and go back and watch the videos again.

    Its all there................as you link to an image, so you can also link to other pages..........your nearly there and your mojo will wait for you.

    A navigation bar needs the same sort of links inside so that it can go to the correct page/s

    It works.......did you hear me shout from there? I just kept clicking around until I activated the hyperlink icon, added the hyperlink with updates.html and republished. It didn't publish instantaneouly so I though I didn't do it correctly. I think I'm getting closer to finding my mojo - lol. Now it's time to update. Thanks for you help.....

    That David's not just a pretty face ya know!...

    I thought, 'where the hell is Tuscon'... never heard of it before... so did a Google map search, then I did a Google satellite search... wow that place looks 'DRY'.. couldn't see a river, a patch of lawn... nothing... or is my Google Map deceiving me?
