Ahh, That was the problem. I had a seeked earlier in our conversations to know if I was uploading them correctly. I guess I got confused because in order to get to the file page, you have to click the button "upload files now". Then I see the create a new file. I created a new file, not knowing that I was just naming a spot for one. Now that I explore more, I now see the upload button. I thought it was awfully odd how this website was finding my files. I have no idea how I got one html file to work. I must of copied a file and didn't realize it out of frustration. Thank you so much for helping me.
My next question is: is the upload button considered a built in FTP for this site or should I install FileZilla and that is where the real power is? Sorry if it seems like a stupid question, but I am learning how all of these things work from a book.
