Hate to sound stupid, but...





PatTheGreat42
It's probably a very simple problem, but here's my question:

I run PatTheGreat.com, and recently switched over to FriHost as my host (It rocks, by the way). All the files I want are already uploaded to the server. Currently, when you go to PatTheGreat.com, you get a directory view with all the files and folders and such listed. When you click on any of the files, the site works fine.

How do I get it so when you go to PatTheGreat.com, instead of seeing a directory view, you instead see my index page, PatTheGreat.com/index.html, or better yet my splash page, PatTheGreat.com/intro.html?

Any help would really be appreciated.
gonzo
maybe Index.html is the wrong case? try renaming to index.html


:sigh: this will only annoy IE users:

http://www.patthegreat.com/shake.js

It has no effect on properly configured firefox installations Razz

To make your homepage intro.html when loading your website on FRIHost.

Create an .htaccess file or if you already have one, edit it.

Add this line

Code:
DirectoryIndex intro.html

Thanks! I thought .htaccess might have something to do with it.

And it might just annoy IE users, but I thought it was cool.

No problem Razz. I play with .htaccess too much.

He means that this script: http://www.patthegreat.com/shake.js will only work on Internet Explorer. I don't think it even works in Opera (which is what I use)

You know the nudge effect in MSN 7.0? It just does that to internet explorer. It doesn't work on Mozilla Razz
