That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I bump into an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..
Do not recall having that option available with WS_FTP LE but I will dig into it and check..
Everything else that I load works fine, I can make all kinds of changes to the page but it is the same line of code each time that ends up missing..
That is what is driving me bonkers..
The url is.
And the image should be in the purple box at the top..
I just in the last week or so, I moved it from the free iPage site it was hosted on to it's new iPage domain and is hosted now on my ISP account...
I can see the image, as well as the supposed missing line of code. Says White Plate Flat Trackers Association with a 1 in a square. Maybe your looking at a chached version that didn't have that missing line?..
I see it too.
And yes, wsFTP LE has that option kevin is talking about...
Could this be due to what I had a little run-in with, proxy server?.
I would upload an updated html file look at the url, no change, look at the source - no change, copy and paste the code into the file through ftp - no change, look at the url through an anonymous proxy service - ahhaaa updated, my adsl proxy was taking a 'screenshot' of my iPage site and showing me the cache, hence I didn't see any update, not for 24 hours anyway which is how often my adsl proxy updates...
As a general troubleshooting measure, dump your history and tif files. Its amazing the number of times that the code is actually there, but the browser is reading from cache......
I forgot to mention that it is still missing when I check it on my laptop as well as on my desktop PC..
Well, I am awake now and have had my coffee, it's time to roll up my sleeves and dig into this deeper..
<edit; I did that Doc and still nothing..
I am guessing that it maybe something along the line that Leoo24 is talking about. My ISP is just on the other side of the mountain from me and may have this area cached on one server while everything else is on a different system or something...
Have a try through an anon proxy KW, see if you can see the updates, I used this one:.
Just type your addy into the bottom text box (i don't know why the page is called login.html, you don't need to login or anything)..
Still no image.
Still no line of code.
But now that cloak iPage site added extra code within the <A tag.
<TD WIDTH='634' HEIGHT='124' COLSPAN='2' BGCOLOR='#4e387e'>.
<! tab table here >.
<TD WIDTH='105' HEIGHT='242' COLSPAN='0' VALIGN='left'>.
It's 10:00 am, tech support should be in the office now..
I just know this is going to be one of them things where I slap myself in the forehead and say Doh!..
That is pretty weird, I see the image fine, normally and through the cloak site, it will add that to the links to continue cloaking it, if it went to the normal link your ip would show up and not that of the-cloak..
Let su know how it turns out, here's a screenshot of your page..
The attached screenshot is how it appears on my system...
Is it a straight html page? php? perl? asp?.
Are there conditionals around the img?..
The only thing that may be questionable is the guestbook link, but the code to the guestbook is not on the other pages on the iPage site and the image and code is missing from them as well..
I am still waiting for tech support to return my phone call..
Last week when I started moving the site, I made changes to the meta tags and all the href tags. They used to read;.
<a href="wpfta.ods.org/ which was to the old server..
I changed them to <a href="www.wpfta.org/ and all of them changes show up on the new uploaded files but no matter how many attempts I have made to correct the problem it keeps deleting only that line of code..
It has to be a problem with my server..
Since scoutt and IKLOP can see the image and the code then that rules out a problem with my FTP program...
I have seen odd lines of code missing on occasions, when using view source on Netscape, Mozilla, and IE 5.5 and as far as I can tell it was some sort of rendering bug in the browser every time...
I even went to MS yesterday and updated IE 6 and did a file repair..
Just finished re-booting the gateway for my DSL and still nothing...
With IE, you can hold dwon the shift key and click on the refresh icon, and the local cache is bypassed and a new copy of the file is downloaded from the server. But if it is a proxy problem that will not help you..
Try this, upload the HTML file from your local computer but give it a different name before you upload it. Then type in the URL to the file and see what happens...
Shift refresh still the same..
Same with >.
When I opened it in my FTP program and located the files I clicked "View" the line of code was theretransfered the copied file and looked at the code and the line was there..
Pull it up on IE and it is still missingat least on my systems...
Hmmm.... don't know what else to say or suggest. I see the image fine myself on both pages. If you uploaded the new file and it has a different name then it has not been cached locally or on the server so it should be showing up correctly in your local browser, the one last thing I can think of, and it's not going to be the problem, is if you have "Work Offline" checked in IE. But if you did you would not be able to read this forum correctly, so that can't be it. Sorry, but I am out of ideas...
It is called a hard refresh doc, mozilla and NS it is the ctrl key which does the same...
Just one of those things you pick up someplace over the years, can't remember where I first learned that...
Strange. It seems to be some kind of cache problem from what I have read. One thing I would suggest doing is duplicating all the code into another file, test.htm for example. Then view this to see if you experiance the same problem. If it shows up fine I would then change something in the test.htm page and view that to see if you can refresh without any cache problems..
If you see the changes then it wont be a normal cache problem. If it does not change then you have a very strange problem....
I am of to your page to have a full look at the source...
Not sure if this is going to help but it may... I can't test it at work... but it would seem you might have a tiny typo towards the end of the page code..
The typo might effect the way the tables are rendered on your page. Have a look at this code: Notice code in red... the tags are the wrong way round... should be </td></tr>.

<! This iPage site created and maintained by Ken James Evanston, WY USA >.
Went to a friends house about four blocks away who has the same ISP as I do, but he is on dial up while I am on DSL..
Yes, that's right kids,,,,,,,image and code shows up fine!!.
Still waiting for a reply from the DSL tech guy who was supposed to pass the problem onto the guy who maintains the server for this area. But, they did send an email saying that due to an increase in growth they will be changing IP address's for DSL accounts in my town plus two other towns nearby..
Entimp, I have tried re-doing it all in new folders new everything but it is still not showing up on either of my systems...
I didn't know this... but it seems that your ISP can sometimes cache a certain web page and serve that to you...
I just fixed that tag error and put an extra howdy in the same section of code you pasted..
I Can see the howdy but am still missing the line of code as well as image..
It is my a problem with my ISP server, can be no other explanation...
If that the case then nobody would see the image and we all did...
Not really... if my ISP, telewest uk, cached the iPage site and yours didn't, some other ISP, then we would see two different sites... or versions of..
The question is then, is KWJams's ISP using a cached version of this site...
If his ISP cached the page it would be for every body. my ISP would still have to get that page from his ISP and then it would be the cached page. if I never been to it then my ISP would get the cached page form his ISP...
If the ISP and the iPage website HOST is the same company in terms of service... then fine... but if it isn't, my argument is still logical...
And then I would agree with you. but they are the same from my understanding of this thread...
Fair enough... I haven't deduced that they are the same... but you could very well be correct....
I did receive a message from my isp today;.
My settings are set to "automatically check for new pages every time I open my browser"..
I reset them to what they wanted me to try and still nothing..
Not sure if I mentioned that this problem of missing code is also in Netscape and Mozzila last time I checked..
My isp is about 50 miles away on the other side of the mountain. I am pretty sure that is were the hosted sites for customers they have are on servers at that location..
About the only thing I have not tried is un-installing Paint Shop Pro 8 and Norton 2003. What would be the odds that one of them programs could be responsible when the problem is only present with missing code on my own website?..
I found the problem!.
Do not give logo's a name like "banner.jpg" if you have Norton 2003 Auto-protect enabled!.
After trying everything that I could think of, or what was recommended, I disabled.
Went to IE tools and deleted temp filesheld shift key down and refreshed page..
There it is the banner logo appeared just like it was supposed to complete with line of code..
Turned Norton back on and "poof" gone again..
It has to be the name> banner.jpg that norton detected and automatically blocked it thinking that it was some kind of spam banner ad..
Thanks for all the help everyone gave..
This had me completely baffled which is not really all that difficult...
Another reason why I hate norton. can you disable that part and still scan for viruses?..
Hmmn... I'm running symantec here at work, and I was able to view no problem. I'll check from my home laptop... which has norton. it may be the version...
I have always liked the.
Even from way back in.
Has always been trustworthy..
Norton crash protect.
Is absolutely horrible...
I have Norton Internet Security 2003 (firewall and ad blocker) which is step up from Norton 2003 which is just virus protection and a step away from Norton Works which is nothing but trouble..
Two things that I have learned from this episode.
1. Norton did it's job when it interpreted the name banner.jpg as ad-ware!.
2. When designing a site, be.
Careful what name you use for images..
Scoutt, I used to have McAffee a long time ago until I was infected with a virus and the directions to remove they provided was to go to symantec.com for removal instructions..
I went with this version of Norton since I was concerned that Norton and Zone Alarm may not get along with each other and Zone alarm is not in the virus protection business...
WOW, I have never heard of that. not saying you are a liar, but linking to the competitor for a removal is not right. I have never seen that on their site. why woulod mcafee do that, they are by far the superior in virus protection (and cheaper), my opinion that is...
I can not recall if they were the ones who actually pointed me to symantec..
But after I discovered that I had a virus the steps I followed sent me too removal tools and then somehow ended up at symantec..
I was pretty miffed that I was infected and then re-directed to Norton which I ended up buying that day...
Strange. I have norton 2002, and all is well...
