    I have freewebs, and I have seen other breeders who have webs with there pages set up to where you just click on the goats name and it goes to a new page with all the info about them, individual profiles.

    How do I do this? I really want too!

    Thanks

    I have the same problem to, and how do you get a kidding chart that has a small pic of each buck/doe?

    With freewebs, you are limited to the amount of pages you have, so it's really not feasible for that host.

    However, to do it, you would have the page for that individual goat set up, and link the image, so that when you click it, it goes to that page.

    As for kidding charts, that's normally done using tables and pictures resized with the html coding.

    I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be looking for here, LOL. I see a nice freewebs page with each goat listed underneath each other, as is normal for freewebs host.

    What she has for the first goat, glitter, is her name and then you can click on that to go to her own page. Thats what im wanting to do

    Okay I think I understand. I'm not sure if PRF is paying for more pages or what, but with freewebs free hosting, you can only have a certain amount of pages, so if you have a lot of does/bucks you would quickly run out of pages.

    However, to do this, you would create a page for Pookums. Then you "hide" it on the file manager.

    Then on the Does page, you highlight Pookums page or picture, and click Link. Then you choose the page to link too.

    This is on freewebs hosting site builder. To do it through html coding is a little more complicated.

    So whats Pookum? lol

    I need to make a bunch of Pookum pages and put each goat on it, and then hide the page?

    I just used the name Pookum. You would change it to the doe/buck's name.

    You have too many goats to do this for them all, you'll run out of pages pretty quick. But you could try it and see.

    "Hiding" the page keeps it from showing up in your menu bar.

    Also keep in mind...I do webdesign :p

    I really like your does Georgia and Porsche :] and how did you get the pedigree thing for each goat? That looks good and would be way easier than typing it all out like I did lol
