    I think it takes an additional program on your server to send them a confirmation email.

    It's over my head as to how to set up that kind of auto-reply.

    You might want to skip that part.

    Usually, if they don't get an error message when they send it, its fairly certain it went through.

    You could test by sending your self an email to see if you get it.

    Now that I think about it, maybe your setup came with the other files to make it work, seeing how you have that form.

    Otherwise, you would need to change the page to get rid of the form, and stuff in the code so when they click your email link, it opens their email program and puts your address in the SEND TO window.

    im just going to leave well enough alone. it comes up with a confirmation page, but i wanted to change it. when it asks for a differnt file for the confirm page, it asks for it in HTML format. im going to use the grass i think on that link you gave me before, and then im going to try another one thats a blue pattern... Thanks for the help!

    The website looks great....the only thing I would change is...make your service area stand out a bit more...like, maybe, list the towns you cover out of the paragraph form. It took me a bit to find out where you were located....many people want to know that right away.

    Other than that....Great Job! I'm impressed with Yahoo! :clapping:

    thanks for the tip! ill be changing that today. I was pretty impressed with it too, it was very easy to do too. ive used the WebEasy program before, and it took a while to figure out, but yahoo. i downloaded it and i was on my way. only took a couple minutes to figure where everything was.

    Maybe its just me, but I like the best of you striped lawn photos, 20 times better than the leaf clean-up photos.

    What do you think about selecting the best of your photos, and just having those?

    Its something I do in my albums - even just the Oregon photos. I culled 10 images out of my albums yesterday. I try to leave just the best of all - rather than something of everything.

    I checked out the yahoo webbuilder site and was wondering?What is the price after the first to months lower startup price?

    Also they talk about hosting from other sites,but what if you decided to move yours site to another host, someone else besides yahoo !

    Since you used there site builder can you move your site without a hassle or will you have to build another ????? Just wondering .Thanks for the help.

    1) i got the domain for 9.56/ month. because we use ATT Yahoo as our service provider. it says it stays that price until you no longer use them as your s/p.

    2) im pretty sure you can change to a different host. youd just have to check with whoever you are switching it too. I was reading something about it today, it said you had to make sure it was unlocked, and then you could move it to a diff. place.
