    This is a much better theme, Jenny, and it looks great. Good use of graphics with the hiker. Like that!

    You still have the question mark that I can now see below the comments section, which is some kind of problem with that part of the page, but unfortunately, your site is still not validating. It says that the doctype is missing.

    The issue is that you are still using frames and the index page that is loading the site via the frames doesn't have the right information in it. Either get rid of the frame/redirect stuff or put the header information in the first index call out page. This is the same problem you had before.

    The site itself, while it still takes a while to load, but much better than before, is lovely. Great work.

    I don't understand what I need to do?

    I put all the WP information in the main directory of the site... so it loads index.php when you go do whereisjenny... is that wrong?

    You have the site set up in a frameset. If you view the source for your index page you see:

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Where is Jenny - Travel the world 2006</title>

    </head>
    <frameset rows="100%,*" border="0">
    <frame src="http://www.motopassionmag.com/whereisjenny" frameborder="0">
    <frame frameborder="0" noresize>
    </frameset>
    </html>

    That's the frame stuff Lorelle is talking about. What it does is allow your travel site to be http://www.whereisjenny.com instead of http://www.motopassionmag.com/whereisjenny. There are other ways to handle that though I'm not all that familiar with them.

    The doctype is info browsers use to determine how to display your page. As it stands now, your doctype should look like this on each page of your site:

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

    This goes at the very top of each page, before anything else.

    Who's motopassionmag, Jenny? Is that a host you use or do you own that domain as well?

    Very simply, do you own the domain for whereisjenny.com? Then make sure your wordpress system is installed in the root directory of that domain. Check with your server on specifics if you don't know.

    I know its confusing, but this has been part of your problem since your first post and we'll do our best to help you, but this is a server thing and you need to contact them and figure out where the root is. If you have the name only and not an actual "site folder system", then we can help you make other arrangements to make the redirect look better than with the frame set stuff.

    So whereisjenny is in a subfolder on motopassionmag, then? I can see the point for the frames, if so. You might check with your host for other possibilities: setting whereisjenny up as a subdomain, some other sort of redirect (they might be able to do something without frames)....

    Yeah... I have it as http://www.motopassionmag.com/whereisjenny I don't have a site folder system for it.

    I called them about getting both domains under that hosting but no go... jive turkeys... I'll just purchase hosting in the next day or so and transfer my site to a different host... (go daddy sucks anyways).

    Thanks for all the help.. when i get it transfered over I'll be back!!! haha.

    Not sure how much you're paying gd, but the host I've used for 5+ years is pretty inexpensive considering. If you'd like to look them over you can check them out at Ace of Space. They offer everything you could want, including extensive handholding when necessary, telephone support (free....), and in the years I've been with them, they've been down only twice - and only one of those times was over an hour (that was due to a fire on another floor in their building that took out the power net. They moved machines to another building and were back up in lesst than five hours.)

    Doesn't godaddy have domain forwarding and some sort of masking? That would allow you to stay where you are at until you find a host and get things set up, but still allow you to remove the frame and validate your site.

    @Jenny
    You should use a free third party domain name service which will point your whereisjenny site to gotopassionmag IP address. Then you need to add a small section to your httpd.conf (assuming you are using apache) and it will point whereisjenny to a directory under gotopassionmag host.

    The whole process shouldn't take you more then an hour to setup and test.

    Hi Jenny, I love the new site design and layout.

    But it seems you have a header error on the homepage stating "Warning: in_array(): Wrong datatype for second argument in /home/whereis/public_html/wp-content/plugins/BAStats/BAStats_logger.php on line 114"

    However, the look and feel is totally amazing.... much better then before.
