I just created a website through iweb. After I published it (FTP) the navigation menu suddenly did not show up at all on any of the web pages. All of the pages are there, but there are no borders around the pictures throughout the site, and on a photo album page, the photos wont show up. My hosting company is startlogic.com The site is www.southlandvet.com if you wanna check it out...The navigation is supposed to be at the top right part of the page. The photo page is www.southlandvet.com/Our_Pets.html
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi,

    my guess is you have made a selective upload of the website. You didn't upload the whole folder that was created in iWeb when you published to folder thus the navigation is missing (at least that's what the black dot on the left upper corner you shortly see when the page loads).

    Try to republish and reupload the whole website.

    If you change the navbar and now want to upload the files you added to the navbar you should just remember to upload

    The Scripts folder
    sitename/Scripts/

    and the feed.xml
    sitename/feed.xml

    too.

    Well, I published the site to a folder and published everything in that folder to the server and placed the scripts in a cgi-bin folder, which is what the hosting company told me to do. Is there another way?

    Ok, new guess... All the links to the scripts get broken because of placing the scripts into another location... You shouldn't change the structure of the site you should leave it the way iWeb created it... +How could a page ever know where the files are it needs to load properly if they aren't where it was told by iWeb?+ I don't know why they suggested you to do so...
    Try to upload it the way iWeb creates it without changing anything...

    Regards,
    Cédric

    Alright, I don't know what happened, but I republished the site to another folder and published it agin to the server and its up. Don't know why, but it works!

    Guess: because you didn't move the scripts that time, thus you didn't change the structure of the website

    I get a big dot instead of the navigation menu. I have uploaded it exactly as iWeb has published it to a folder on my desktop. All files/folders are on the web and everything else shows up perfectly, but not the Navigation Menu on ANY page.
