Doctype and Port 80 problems - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

Hi Have a site up and running through Contribute and hoped someone can help with a couple of problems: The index page is adding :80/ to the end of the URL instead of just / Does anyone know how to get rid of this? Also, what is the best doctype to use with contribute? Appears that no doctype is added and really need to do that before tackling the other code/validation errors. Tried a couple of options but these made the situation worse. Thanks in advance for any assistance. Tom...

    Default Doctype and Port 80 problems

    Hi

    Have a site up and running through Contribute and hoped someone can help with
    a couple of problems:

    The index page is adding :80/ to the end of the URL instead of just / Does
    anyone know how to get rid of this?

    Also, what is the best doctype to use with contribute? Appears that no doctype
    is added and really need to do that before tackling the other code/validation
    errors. Tried a couple of options but these made the situation worse.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Default Re: Doctype and Port 80 problems

    Hi

    I would like to say that not getting a reply in the forum was a little
    disappointing. In no way do I blame forum members, that's up to them but don't
    Adobe people keep an eye on questions that are unanswered. Looking at how many
    others there are, maybe not. Neither did they reply to the email I sent to
    support.

    In the end, I found a free website help line in the area where I'm staying.
    They are [url]http://www.surreywebdevelopment.org.uk[/url] and deserve a mention, as they
    helped for nothing, within a couple of hours. Anyway, the port 80 thing I'm
    still not sure about, as they spoke to my hosts and this is sorted out but I'm
    not sure how. On the doctype, they recommended HTML 4.01 Transitional, I'll
    paste the code below if that helps anyone, which goes right at the top of your
    page (in the source code, not the page itself).

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
    (Then there's another line, just search for that, went weird on here.)

    They also suggested a few other things and explained how to use a validator.
    Can't say the website code is absolutely perfect yet but nearly. Can't really
    understand why this isn't added anyway, I love contribute and people say my
    website looks good, important for a photographer. Just hope Adobe will work on
    the coding problems, I don't want to feel I have to use something else.
