I purchased a cheap web template many moons ago and a colleague of mine at the time said he could get it changed to display my details instead of the Latin content that came with it.
He managed to do it perfectly as he showed me on his local machine but as soon as he uploaded it to the host GoDaddy.com, the text is replaced by two animated boxes?
Unfortunately he is seconded to Australia through our company and I don’t have a contact number for him.
I’m stuck and need to have my website up and running so I can try and make some money freelance.
The web address is http://www.lastmincad.com/ and if need be, i can upload the source code if it helps.
I would REALLY appreciate some help if anyone feels kind enough!
Frankly it looks like the site hasn’t been populated with content.
What I THINK is supposed to happen is that when you click on once of the four boxes, it populates the ‘floating boxes’ area with content from a div with a class of ‘cascade-window-content’….except there is nothing in that div.
While it’s waiting it shows that aimated gif as a ‘pre-loader’.
Okay, that makes a little bit of sense to me, I gather you can see the source from your browser, as I said I know very, very little when it comes to web design so would there be an easy way of changing this?
Viewing source and opening Inspector are two different things, really.
If you want to see the error that I see when clicking on your links, open up Chrome and right click anywhere on the page and select ‘Inspect Element’. Once the inspector is up you can go to the Console tab and see any errors that are running (you’ll also see that your Twitter code is throwing an error).
As far as changing it goes, I couldn’t actually find where the AJAX call is being made because the theme is bundled with *so many* JS files – I might be able to dig later today, but hopefully somebody else can help you out in the mean time.
More abstractly, I would strongly advise cleaning up your site a bit. There are more than 10 separate JS files being loaded. This is going to spell disaster for performance as well as making it really hard to work out where problems are coming from. You could therefore improve this by combining all the jQuery into 1 or 2 compressed files and doing the same for the multiple CSS requests. Arguably, these things are just symptoms of the biggest issue as far as the site being next to useless when JavvaScript is disabled.
I know I sure criticized a lot but in doing so I am trying to help. :)
On your local machine, can you look in the folder your website is in? You should see a folder called “page“. If you open that, I bet you’ll see four HTML files in there: “blue.html“, “green.html“, “yellow.html“, and “orange.html“.
If so, upload that folder to your host via FTP, with the same directory relationship as in your local machine.
