Hi,
I've just created my first site in Dreamweaver. I've spent a while learning the codes and getting the layout perfect and this is what the site looks like in preview:

Fluff Pups Preview (http://yfrog.com/j0picture3ezp)

I uploaded my site using Classic ftp and on my server the site looks like this:
Fluff Pups (http://www.nonstop-giveaway.co.uk)

I cant figure out why and was wondering if anyone else knows what might be causing it?

Looks like you forgot to upload some images:

Hi thank you, I've managed to get the logo to appear now but the iframe and background image still aren't showing.
Do you know why this might be?

The iFrame is showing, it's just pink because it can't find this image:

I'm seeing a background image.

Ah yeah, I just opened it in Safari and it was fine.
Just Firefox it doesn't work on!?

Thanks for the help!

Is there any particular reason for displaying the contents of the page in an iframe rather than just adding it to the individual page?

Yeah I only wanted the page to change in the pink area, I wanted the navigation part to not have to reload each time a page opens.
Is there another way of doing this?

A user's browser should cache the consistent elements of your page (such as menu) meaning that they will only need to be downloaded once during a visit. Most sites are built with individual pages. If you want to use just one file for your menu to save updating lots of pages with changes then look at; http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/dreamweaver-templates.php and http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/php-includes.php for your two main options.

iframes in your pages may cause problems when a Search Engine visits your page or when users try and bookmark and return to a particular page they found interesting.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for your reply,
I didn't quite understand the template tutorial (still pretty new at this)
I understand css frames are similar to iframes but are more search engine friendly, is that right?
I was going to attempt to add a css frameset instead if I can find a decent tutorial for it.

I know what a frameset is but a CSS frameset I've not come across before. My advice still stands, build individual pages.
