AOLers cannot access my site


#1

I have never understood AOL nor that mindset.

Anyway, I put up a few pages to assist with a committee at church that I am on and have been told that several people with AOL cannot access my site. AOL tells them the site does not exist and to try to spell it again.

I used Dreamweaver 4. The files are .htm.

Does AOL not see .htm?

Do they need to type in the ‘www’ part?

Is it AOL or my site?

I found this information at this site: http://webmaster.info.aol.com/index.cfm?article=500000000000056&expand=0&sitenum=2&menuid=56

There are two ways to set the HTTP header information. The first
method is to set an HTTP header via the web server. All outgoing
pages will have a default set of headers attached to them that are
readable by other web servers, web caches, and web browsers. The
second method is to set an HTTP header for each specific page.
With this method, a web page must have been created using a
programming language such as JSP or ASP, and then the page is
scripted so that it will send the appropriate header information. It
is readily apparent that there are two drawbacks with this method.
First, all pages must be coded to send the header. Second, the
pages cannot be static HTML. This will have some effect on the web
server’s performance. The first method – to set the headers via the
web server – is preferred and will be covered in greater detail within
this section.

Any idea what this is saying in English?

I love solving my own problems… sort of solve them.

theory 1: after installing AOL 7 on my computer (are you SURE they are not MS in disguise??) and after a lengthy process of signing up, I was able to access my website and the other websites folks were having trouble with. So the conclusion is: they are idiots and therefore belong on AOL

theory 2: after installing AOL…blah blah… conclusion is: they are running a different version of AOL

theory 3: after installing…yada yada… conclusion is: they are idiots and that’s why they are on AOL

There, howz that?

Well, if you can get to them yourself, it’s not your fault of course…

They could be typing the URL incorrectly. Maybe they type in holyroller.com or hollyroller.org or something.
