Infinite Loop - Need to remove a metetag - How do I do that?

As a newbie I am having problems getting my 1st site up and running. I use dreamweaver and am hosted by hostgator. My site is hypnozoom.com. Although I uploaded my site a week ago I only get the cpanel of hostgator whenever I type in hypnozoom.com. Hostgator tell me my site is on an infinite loop (whatever that means!) and I will need to remove a metetag <mete http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url="> How do I do this please and is it likely to fix the problem?
Cheers

I don't know why you have that line of code in your site? But what it is basically telling the browser to do is to constantly refresh your page... therefore it will never show.

You need to open up your page in Dreamweaver.... click the "CODE" tab... and remove that line of code from your page... it will be near the top.

Then re-upload your page/site and it will work fine.

Thanks. Have looked for the offending metatag but can only find <meta http-equiv-"content-type"content="text/html;charset=iso-8859-1"/>
I presume I don't remove that?
Anything else you can think of?
Cheers

That's a bit weird.

The page that you've uploaded... is it called index.html, index.htm or index.php?

When I view your source code I see that meta refresh tag, and I also see "Template error: Function setHelp has not been defined". So I'm guessing it's something wrong with your template? Without being able to get in and have a look, I can't really tell.

Can you try using a different template? Where are you getting your templates from?

Hi. The page I uploaded was index3.html and the template I used was from dreamweaver starter pages. Hostgator said I can access my site using hypnozoom.com/index3.html, which works, but not hypnozoom.com! Maybe I should start over using a different template as you suggest or have a crack at designing my own pages.

Hi Alan,

Well that one's easy! All you need to do is rename index3.html to index.html! You can either do that on your computer (just right click on the file name in your folder and rename it) or do it on the web server.

Looks like you're off to a good start, by the way :)

By the way... it looks like you're creating the pages of your website as Dreamweaver themes rather than pages that use a theme. That's why they're coming up as thiswebpage.dwt instead of .html, which is why you won't be able to see your other pages normally.

Check out this site:

It shows you how to create HTML pages using your theme.

All the best,
Mark
