    Just as a side note you should know that when you go to bookmark it it say's "home" and not Backwoodsdaydreamer. Not too big a deal as I just changed the title before I saved it too my bookmarks, but some might get confused when they save it and don't know which one it is!
    I saw that... I just haven't the website understanding to change it properly. I can change the name of the Home Page, but it changes the Link name as well. Anyone know how to go about it?

    Thanks Cranky Bear

    If you are editing the page directly with the html coding, there is a <title> tag that allows you to change what is shown at the top of the web browser as the pages change.

    Cheers

    On my Webs.com site it automatically inserts the site name into the page title once it is published. On the Site Manager page your page will be named "Home" but then it should get renamed so that if you view the source code (Edit Menu > Source) the 4th line down should read:

    <title>Backwoods Daydreamer - Home</title>

    Where as it currently reads:

    <title>Home</title>

    This may have happened when you moved over to the custom domain name. A quick fix would be to change the title of your Home page to Backwoods Daydreamer but then that would also change how it appears in your Menu.

    Either way, contact Webs.com tech support and let them know that this is happening.

    Use Notepad, whatever. SaveAs UTF-8 not ANSI or Unicode.

    Upload to host to replace. Use Filezilla.

    Maybe get a favicon for the Bookmarks and Tabs. I made mine. But I am not busy.

    Hammock Forums has one.

    Thanks so much for the technical side of it - I'm at a loss when it comes to that stuff. It'll probably be a little bit, but I should be able to get it fixed up soon.

    Thanks again.

    On another note - the tarp tie-out lines came in this week and I'm working out an inexpensive system that will be available in the store when we get back "online". Test samples are being shipped this week for feedback.

    Just an FYI to potential buyers: I bought 10 yards of the olive some time ago... I had to look for the gray stripes to find it...

    I made a TQ and a single layer hammock from this material, and I'm very pleased...

    I'm trying to convince the wife to let me buy more!

    Another pleased customer

    The olive drab fabric Scott's selling is really nice and a steal at that price. I've used it to make a down quilt and light jacket and haven't experienced any loss of down.

    The olive fabric is extremely nice, but I don't think anybody is gonna miss the two sets of black lines running right down the center of it.

    Not trying to detract from it, it's excellent fabric at an excellent price, of which I plan to buy much more.

    Maybe my bolt was more obvious, NBD for me, but if it's all the same stuff, don't think it's necessary to be misleading about it. Anybody that's so uptight they need something absolutely "character-free" can go pay $8+/y somewhere else right?


    Anyway, sorry for calling you out on this John, not trying to be rude, just don't want anybody getting angry for misunderstanding. Hope that's cool.

    Thanks guys - and you're both right.

    I hope I was clear enough in the description on the 2nds material - there are two lines.

    On some rolls, it's really hard to see, on other rolls the lines are a bit more prominent. The lines are dark gray, about 4" apart, and about 1/32" thick. If you go to my webstore page and click to expand the image posted on this material, scroll to the very bottom of the image and you can see the lines if you look close.

    This material has been selling really fast, I'm nearly out. Going to have to order more on Monday.
