Hi, OMG I need major help here! I just bought new computer, transferred all
BlueVoda web building forums and images here, and bingo! When I look at my
pages, all fonts are wrong, all graphics say "image not found" , all colors
are gone, and all shapes I made have been misplaced (e.g. a box centered in
page is suddenly appearing an inch over to the right.)
BlueVoda said this was an issue with my new computer. Toshiba said its a
Microsoft issue. Microsoft said it's a Vista issue and Toshiba should help
me but Toshiba says no. (Microsoft said they offer support for $89 but geez,
when they come out with a new product, whether I bought it or Toshiba did, if
the product isn't working right shouldn't they help people GRATIS?)
If anyone wants to chat with me - I'm sure this will take awhile- please let
me know. I was pushing really hard to get my site up and running by TODAY.
Now, as it stands, it would take me another month or two.
Oh- in addition, I can tell you this: a guy I know from the Blue Voda forum
told me this: my photos don't present because the original computer path was
changed and I musht "clone" the destination path for my images (I don't know
what that means).
For pages I published I should simply republish and Vodahost (BV) server
knows what image is asked for and automatically selects the proper image.
....I TRIED that, it doesn't work.
For pages I did not yet publish, he says ther is no "refernece path" to
recreate, so I need to one-by-one manually replace all items on my building
page from wherever I stored them in the computer. That is not working
either. e.g. I made a color bar to separate menu items (similar to the bars
you see here between community, discussions, etc...but when I preview it the
bar has moved down on top of the wording!)
He thought the font I was using might not be loaded in Vista, but Microsoft
says it is. (Verdana). My fonts change everywhere- in email, and in my web
pages. NOT in Word. Other programs though, as well. And when I type in
something on many programs, the font is so tiny I can barely read it!
He said the color change (removed) should not happen at all. Says it sounds
like a resolution or display setting issue on my new unit.
MAYBE, HOPEFULLY, this info will help one of you wizards (sorry, I'm just
really a computer idiot) to help me out. Please please!..at your earliest
convenience. I would be FOREVER GRATEFUL!! And just an fyi, no I can't go
back and use my old computer. It's bit the dust forever.
Last question: are some people on here alot of the time, like they would be
in my website builder, just helping out and about? That would be nice.
Again, thanks for reading. I know it's long but wanted to explain ALL that I
