Sad Separate Galleries page...where did I go wrong?
I'm sorry, I'm obviously still trying to get a handle on all this. I hope I'm replying correctly this time. My current "issue" is that I HAD things pretty much set up where everything was hidden on the "home" page except for a slideshow. Well, I changed from galleries to "categories" (that's ALL I did!) and now I'm back to where I was before. All I want is a separate home and galleries page. Please.

Thank you...

Seems to be working fine for me now. Did you fix it or do you still have a question?

I tried the original script and cannot get it to work. I do have a fullscreen slideshow and transparent banner on my original homepage though. Could this be causing a problem? When I set up the links in my header/navbar, they either kept me on the fullscreen slideshow, or they took me to a blank homepage.

Sorry, but we can't really help unless you include a link to your site with the script in place and then a short description of what you're trying to accomplish (or what isn't working that you want help with).

Whoops, I guess that would help, huh? *Smacks head*



Currently I just put a gallery link in the header but clicking it gets me nowhere

The only changes I made was to add a .bio #biobox because I want one of my extra pages to have a bio, unless its easier to just add some HTML somehow.

Add this missing comma shown in red here:

Code:
.bio #biobox,
.galleries #galleriesBox,
.galleries #categoriesBox,
.find #datesBox,
.map #mapBox,
.featured #featuredBox,
.featured-events #eventsBox,
.recent #recentPhotosBox {display: block;}

Thanks. It still wasn't working, but I re-did the URL link and included the full http: and it worked this time. It WAS working if I physically typed in .../galleries, but the link wouldn't work. Go figure. However, the only one still not working is derekhannah.com/bio. That just seems to reload the fullscreen slideshow page. Any ideas? Thanks for the help.

All navbar links must either start with a / or http://.

There are three problems with the .bio page.

1) Your bioBox is not visible
2) You haven't disabled the homepage slideshow on the bio page
3) The bioBox is empty

Change this part of your CSS to fix #1:

Code:
.bio #bioBox,
.galleries #galleriesBox,
.galleries #categoriesBox,
.find #datesBox,
.map #mapBox,
.featured #featuredBox,
.featured-events #eventsBox,
.recent #recentPhotosBox {display: block;}
For #2, you will have to follow the instructions for that homepage slideshow you're using to disable on a bio page.

For #3, you have to put some working content into the bio. Right now you have a non-functioning custom slideshow in the bio box.

Ok, I just put the bio onto the /Featured page. I just put "Testing" in the box to see if it would work. Now the last problem I am trying to figure out, is how to get the keyword search onto the same page (derekhannah.com/find ) as the timeline. I want this to be my "Search" page on my navbar.

Add another missing comma:

.find #datesBox,
.find #keywordsBox, 
.map #mapBox,
.featured #bioBox,
.featured-events #eventsBox,

I just had to laugh at myself for making the same mistake twice. That fixed it. Thanks for all of your help.

If I wanted to add something new, could I go to my homepage and add some things and then go adjust the code for it or do I have to start from step 2 and do everything all over again? The other question is, what is the phrase to use for a single photo page or single video page. Would a correct example be to add ( .featured-event #videoBox, )

You can incrementally just add new items and modify the CSS and add new pages to the multihomepage script. Can you see CSS identifiers for new objects in the homepage by doing a View/Source on the page and looking at the HTML or you can use a more powerful tool like the free Firefox add-ons Firebug or Web Developer that let you look directly at the objects in any web page.

Is #videoBox or #photoBox the correct terms to use for those pages? The tutorial did not include those in the example and code given.

Are you not interested in learning how to figure this out for yourself like I described in my previous post?

I apologize, I did not realize that was in reference to that question, I thought you were just giving me a tip that was unrelated to that and had forgotten to answer that question. No need to be snippy about it. I appreciate the help and would like to learn. Can you be a little more clear? Which page would I look at the source? My homepage currently has no single picture or single video on it.

I didn't intend to be snippy. I had written some advice about finding objects on the page and I couldn't tell if you didn't see it or were not interested in learning how to do it yourself. To see what those objects are, you would put them on your homepage and then look at the HTML of the homepage to see what the objects are called.

Ok, I tried that and am skimming through the code. I see "photoVideoBox" I assume that would be what I am looking for. So I assume I would use, just for example

featured-events #photoVideoBox

Edit: I just tried it and it worked.
