    I tried to make a page the other day and when I went to submit the changes, it made the new page totally blank. I can't even get in there to edit or delete it. It's at https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=16733-incubation_to_adolescence . I've since redone the page to be titled incubation-to-adolescence, and that one works just fine. If I could have the other one deleted, I'd really appreciate it. Don't want my links to get messy with non-functioning pages. Thanks!
     
  2. Can not get to it. You should be able to delete, but did you name the new page the same as the old ? Also, which browser are you using ?

    The only real problem i have ever had with this process is getting the pages I make in the order i wish them to be.

    There is a video on how to do all this in the home page of the BYC and I go there often to refresh cause I have trouble remembering that using the MY PAGE is quite a bit different than when you are in the forum.

    Other than this, I am clueless.

    I saw that your pages are named the same sorta. I do believe this is going to be a NIFTY fix. I did get to your pages the first time around, but when i clicked the other I could not get back to the first one. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for checking it out for me. [​IMG]

    I think the problem is you can only delete a page if you can view it, and the delete link on it. I can't get it to load that far.

    It would be very nice to be able to organize our links!

    I'm pretty handy when it comes to doing websites, but I'm used to working on raw HTML or using an HTML editor such as Dreamweaver. It's taken a little bit of getting used to the BYC system. The font size in the pop-up window for adding images and such is tiny and hard for me to read. That's pretty much the only complaint I'd have on the entire system.

    rimshoes, if you click on my BYC page, you can see how I made a little navigation area for my comb info pages. It took a little time to set up all the links, but I like the way it looks, and it makes my pages more orderly.
     
  5. Thanks TCL, I will look on your BYC page. BTW I refer many people to your comb pages. i have just started to learn about genetics of chickens. I have the background to absorb this, but the mind goes after a few hours.

    Cass, you've got some AMAZING pages there! The pics are great too... I'm really impressed and would love to link the pages from the BYC Learning Center when you are done (just PM me when you are).

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think the bum page issue was because the names were the same or the second page name was too long. I changed the name to "test" and it works fine now. You can delete it or whatever you like. [​IMG]
