Issues with HTML

I am using Sea Monkey and for some reason after I create an article and upload it, I need to RE-DEFINE my links in my header and footer as the uploaded versions link to my file on my Mac which is worthless for my readers. I have no way to fix this or I do not know how to fix this, other than re-defining my links but it works. A old HTML editor that I used in the past had a verify links feature that would do the job for me, but it appears that Sea monkey does not have this feature. Does anyone know of a way to solve this annoyance? Thanks..

My latest article is here.


The links I am talking about are in the header and the footer.


PS- Some have told me to move to Word Press, some other software or what not, which is not going to happen in my situation as I lack the technical skill the funds, and time for this operation. I choose to focus on my time on my content and spend as little time as possible dealing with these technical issues.

I'd love to offer advice but I've never even heard of Sea Monkey so I wouldn't know where to start.

While the idea of moving WordPress or another Content Management System may seem a bit daunting, a site like yours is about as simple as it gets and there really shouldn't be any cost involved unless you want to have someone set it up for you.

It might be worth the time and/or cost to get something like that running so you can manage your content much more effectively and save time in the long run. Just a thought.

I had to look up what Sea Monkey is and if it's what I think it is, might want to see if any plug-ins exist in it's collection:


Saw a couple you could either use or modify to verify links. Of course verify means two different things - link syntax checking aka validation (simple regular expression) or does page actually exist (i.e. cURL or PHP fopen, etc. checking for HTTP response codes).

Help with link (URL) validation: http://regexlib.com/Search.aspx?k=UR...ookieSupport=1

Help for URL exists: http://www.wrichards.com/blog/2009/0...sts-with-curl/

I have no clue about Sea Monkey so hope this helps you if you create it on your own and don't switch to a different CMS.
