I have an internet problem that is driving me nuts! I spent all yesterday afternoon trying to update my website! My website is a Yahoo Sitebuilder program, and I have been very happy with the ease in which a novice like me can create and operate my own website. I have had it for several years. Recently, while at my daughter's house, I discovered that some of the links I have created don't work. They have an Apple computer and Firefox browser. When I came home I set about correcting the links and they wouldn't correct! Well, I had recently switched from Internet Explorer to Google Chrome. When I went back into IE, everything worked as it should.
So yesterday I needed to add my new pattern to my website. Somehow I was able to load page 5 in my pattern section, and create a couple of new page links. Yay! Then I decided to redo page one, as I thought the pictures needed brightening. I was messing with that all afternoon and could not get the new page to update! I tried again last night before I went to bed. Nothin'.
So, this morning I opened IE and went to my website and there it was! The new page one! I was pleased and puzzled at the same time. So I closed IE and opened Firefox. (Oh, I didn't mention that Granddaughter Becky insisted that I must have Firefox on my computer because it is so much better) Well the blooming page still wasn't there on my website when I opened it in Firefox! What the heck?
So I ask you, am I doing something wrong, or do all these browsers just not play nice together? I could go back to using only Internet Explorer, but then would other people using my website still have trouble connecting to links? Do I need to hire a professional website designer? Would that make a difference?
P.S: Bottom line is that for now, if you want to order the new Honor Guard pattern, click on pattern pages link and when the first page opens click on page four, then on page four click on page five to see Honor Guard. Unless you are on Firefox, then, apparently, you can open it up to the NEW page one and it has a link to page five. This is killin' me! I am a quilter not a techie!
