lobley, you can have up to 7 AOL screen names, right? Each one of those can hold 2 MB. Dude, you can have up to 14MB web space if you want!
You can just make your main homepage under your main screen name, and when those 2 MB are filled up, just make more pages under another screen name, and link there to & from the main home page.
Forget that crummy “1-2-3 Publish” or whatever they use for total newbies to put together pages. Learn your own HTML, and go to the keyword “MY FTP” to upload your pages. That’s the only way to really get it right.
Speaking of which: AOHell has been tinkering with their FTP stuff, and they broke something there, so we temporarily can’t upload. Been like that for at least a couple weeks now. I e-mailed Help today and they apologized and said they’ll fix it soon. :rolleyes: So please stand by.
One more hint: If they get you to join “AOL Hometown,” you get a whopping 12 MB in your space—84 MB in all! The catch is, they stick a permanent ad banner at the top of your screen. Even if you enter the URL starting with http://members.aol.com/lobley/, it will be automatically changed to http://hometown.aol.com/lobley, and that cheezy ad banner will be a fixture, like it or not.
But Jomo is clever. Jomo found a workaround. <rubbing hands> ha haa!
All you have to do is insert into the URL the following magical characters after aol.com and before your screen name:
So the URL http://members.aol.com/_ht_a/lobley/ will remain free of the dorky ad banner! Hooray!
