Editing your Web Page with Netscape Communicator  
Editing your Web Page
Using Netscape Communicator
I am frequently editing my pages.  I have tried several HTML editors and I prefer Netscape.  I don't need another editing program taking up space on my hard drive.  Everything I need is in one program; my e-mail, browser, composer and editor.  I will give step-by-step instructions the way I do it.
Follow these steps:
1.  Open the page you want to edit in your Netscape browser.  You can open it from your file on your hard drive or from your page on the net by going to your URL.  These instructions will be for taking a page down from the net and editing it.
2.  Click File then Edit Page.  A new page opens in editing form.
3.  You must remove the geoguide from this page so it is not saved to your hard drive.  You then have to reinsert the code. To do this:
  • Wait until the page loads completely on the "edit" page. 
  • Highlight the entire geoguide, being careful to include only the geoguide.
  • Click Edit then Delete.
  • Reinsert the geoguide HTML tag  (see "Creating Web Pages with Netscape" for instructions on adding the geoguide code)
  • There is no need to reactivate this geoguide since this page will take the place of the previous page.
  • REMEMBER every time you edit it must be removed and reinserted.
You must remove the Geocities Watermark (that floating thingy Geocities automatically inserts on every page) in the same way.  DO NOT reinsert anything.  Geocities will do that when you upload your new page.  We do not have control over this.
4.  Remove your counter, if you have one.  It cannot be saved to your hard drive because the image is in the Geocities cgi library.  Reinsert this HTML tag in the same manner as you did the geoguide.  <IMG SRC="/cgi-bin/counter">  If you do not have a counter and want one go to:  http://www.geocities.com/members/tools/counter.html  REMEMBER every time you edit it must be removed and reinserted.
5.  Save this page to your folder on your hard drive.  It will replace your original HTML page.  Be sure it is titled the same as the original page so it takes its place in your folder. 
Example:  index.html. (see "Creating Web Pages" on how to save your page)
6.  Go about you editing in the same manner you created the page.
7.  When completed, Save your final copy to your folder.
8.  Upload this new page to your file manager (see "Creating Web Pages")  It will replace any page already uploaded with the same name.  Be sure it is titled exactly the same as the page you want it to replace.
9.  View your new page being sure to reload the page so you are viewing the new page and not your cache copy.
