From Ken at http://www.paintedparadise.com on 3 Oct '02
Maybe if I re-phrase my question this way:

On your websites; does your address end with ".com/"; or does it
go on to identify the folder name the website is contained in?
(Example:

mysite.com/my_folder_name/index) If it does end with just
".com/"; do you have a "re-direct" command (html or javescript)
in order to take the viewer to the ACTUAL website? The reason I
bring up AltaVista in the previous posts is because I paid form
inclusion there and they tell me I can't change my address for 6
months. So here is what I have so far on my short address:

<html>

<head>

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=ISO-
8859-1">


<title>Tropical Art Paradise at The Painted Paradise Gallery</title>

<META NAME="description" content="Tropical Art Paradise by
KenMac at the Painted Paradise Gallery of Surf Art">


<META NAME="keywords" content="tropical paradise surf art free

window.location="http://www.paintedparadise.com/Surf_Art_Site/index.html";

// End -->

Now what I'm needing to know is HOW can I not use the java re-
direct command, and have my website come up after the user types
in www.paintedparadise.com without putting in the sub-directory
("/Surf_Art_Site")in the address? Am I making sense? I know this
sounds so lame. I should tell you I had a friend set up the re-
direct in the first place; but it was an "html" re-direct and
AltaVista will not allow it. The techs there advised me to
replace that command with the javascript command as seen above. I
put in the "title", "desciption", and "keywords" tags myself; but
as you can see; I have no text on the page because it really
isn't a page at all until it is re-directed to the actual site.
Whew! Now I'm really confused! Here are the directories that are
in my account at Catalog.com if that ell help. Thanks in advance!
