Trial, Error and knowing when to ask for help. 4

After reading Lacey’s instructional post on how to use reclaim and a Mac. I am still stuck. I had my boyfriend who works in computers tried to help but even he couldn’t figure it out. Seems like there was no “public_html” folder to find. I wonder if I set something up wrong. I tried creating a folder but that didn’t do anything. I just keep getting 404 errors.

I did manage to get what I wanted out of Dreamweaver. The only thing that I wasn’t able to do is float my image in the center of the header. I also think the white it too white. I just couldn’t stare at the screen anymore to erase the background of my image. Here is a  screen shot of the page I created as well as a screen shot of the ftp in case anyone can help.

After many tears I broke down and asked reclaim for help. Magically they fixed it in 3 seconds. It turns out I was logged in to the wrong something. Of course I was, why wouldn’t I have been.


Here is my portfolio site:

    Your post was helpful and somewhat encouraging. I’m going to be doing this a little later tonight so I’m holding out hope that it won’t be too painful. I also found Lacey’s instructions to be very helpful, even though I haven’t read through them yet. I’ll probably be in the same boat and on the phone with Reclaim hosting tomorrow.

    I was struggling with a too white background as well, but I didn’t want an image or plain color. I found a fun code that lets you do a gradient background of your choice! It’s probably easy to find on Google, but I think I used W3 schools if it helps! Just email me if you can’t find the code :]

    Hey Danielle,

    I also had problems with reclaim hosting. At first, I realized that nothing of mine was getting mirrored or transmitted properly onto my domain. It took awhile for me to get it fixed and it finally works. Glad to hear your portfolio is up and running now!

    Hi Danielle!

    Don’t worry, I had a lot of problems getting my portfolio up as well. After many panic attacks, I finally got it up and running. The easiest part of this whole thing (for me, at least) was coding everything in Dreamweaver, which I honestly thought was going to be the most difficult thing to get through! Hopefully everything will go smoother from here on out.
