Personal web pages are stored in a directory called WWW within your accountspace.
The default name for your page should be welcome.html
You access these pages from your browser with the URL
Where mylogin is your account name.
In order to access these pages, you must upload your new page to this spot on the server
(Upload is a geek term meaning move the file from your computer to the one here).
Its tricky but follow the steps and it will work.
One of the best ways to upload your file is to use a FTP program. WsFTP is a good one, but most will work simply and successfully.
Use these parameters when connecting (It'll ask you ..)
|Host Type||Auto detect or Unix|
|User ID||your login|
|Initial Dir- Remote Host||leave blank|
|Initial Dir - Local Host||leave blank|
After you connect, you will have two screens, one is your computer, the other is the server. On the server side, look for a directory called WWW (Uppercase). Change into this directory by "doubleclicking" on it.
Now copy your file to this directory by hilighting it on your directory listing, then clicking the arrow.
Sounds complex but it isn't. Try it and see how you go. If you totally bugger it up we can fix it, so experimentation is ok.
In order to recognise your pages, the main page must be called welcome.html You can rename it on the server if required. Note that it is case sensitive.
If you're having problems, email us or call when you are ready to upload your page. Email:email@example.com
1. Click the PUBLISH button on composer
2. Call the filename welcome.html
3. In the Http or Ftp location to publish to enter the following text exactly
4. Enter your login name and password
5. Click OK
It should work, but like all automated procedures, it can go wrong.
The excellent counter created by M A Muquit has been implementedon this server.
Documentation is available at http://www.muquit.com/muquit/software/Count/Count.html
When implementing your site counter, use the data file called sample.dat to test your counter, then email Shoalhaven Internet with a request to establish a counter data file unique to your account. This would, for example, be called "jsmith.dat" if your login ID was jsmith.
This is an example counter using the file sample.dat :
The source code looks like this -
<IMG SRC="http://www.shoalhaven.net.au/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=E|ft=0|tr=T|trgb=255;255;255|df=sample.dat" >

Thanks to Max Hayward for the following contribution:
CGI forms have many advantages over the mailto form generated by many web page authoring tools. There is an excellent form to email gateway called FormMail implemented on this server. Before attempting to use it, you need to have a good understanding of how forms are implemented at the HTML level. A good place to start is an on line form tutorial. The next step is to read the detailed instructions on the use of FormMail. You only need to read the section starting at 'Form Configuration', as the section before this is information for the ISP. Finally you will need to add the following two lines to allow your form to point to the CGI script and specify the email address you want the contents of the form emailed to:
<form method="post" action="http://www.shoalhaven.net.au/cgi-bin/FormMail.pl">
<input type=hidden name="recipient"value="firstname.lastname@example.org">
Remember to put your email address in the "value" parameter. For an example of a form using this procedure, have a look at the source code of the contact form on my web site. I have also added a page of resources, to my web site, for those who are interested in learning html.
