Same page, but not in a popup - so you can see the URL and bookmark them.

A URL is the address or website that you visit. It is a Uniform Resource Locater.
So you type in http://piptalk.com
That is the web page I want to go to.

Now depending upon the browser you use, there should be a Favorites or something of that nature to click on, on the top of your browser. You have File, Edit, View, Favorites, etc...(this is in IE)

Click on your favorites, and having the page open of what you want to save, choose "Add to favorites."

The next time you click on your "Favorites" button, it should pull up a list of all the sites you've saved there. You can now simply click on the name of the site you'd like to visit without having to type in the "URL" or address of that site each time.

Make sense?

Hi WhtDove,

First of all thank you so much it made sence finally,

Secondly, most of the stuff I do thats new on my computer is found by accident so all of this time I have been coming to passions all I had to do is click on the (e) for inter net and some how I made it so I would come to the passions forums page, but sence everything is different now all it shows me is (Navigation Canceled) so I went in to (MY Computer) and put in www.piptalk.com added it pressed OK but when I click on the (e) it still shows (Navigation Canceled) I would love to be able to have passions forum page as the page that pops up Everytime I come on to the inter net because thats just about the only place I ever go and am very happy with  that so WHAT am I doing WRONG? I need a valid address to put in to that space, do you know what I can do about this?

Thank you again, Cerenity

Very Important!



No one should be adding a www to the piptalk.com domain! I'm not picking on you Cerenity, it's a VERY common mistake and I've seen three people do it in just a day and a half. Adding the www will get you here, but it is almost guaranteed to mess up your cookies. (All of the internal links in the system avoid using the www, and since cookies are domain specific, you are essentially coming into one domain and then linking to another.) So, please everyone, avoid the common www and save yourself some headaches.

To make the forum main page your Home Page, Cerentiy, go to Tools in your browser menu, then click on Internet Options. You should already be on the General tab, and the very first prompt on the popup should be Home Page Address. Erase what's in there and type in http://piptalk.com/main/Ultimate.cgi?action=intro

Click on the OK button at the bottom of the popup. Now, every time you open your browser you should end up here. And any time you want to return here from somewhere else, all you need to do is click on your "Home" button in the toolbar.

Ron,

You scared the living daylights out of me!!! If my cookies crumble now I would surely DIE!!! I was doing what you told me to do before but instead of using a CAP for the U in Ultimate I was using lower case so it was not taking, but now my new home is truly home for me thank you so VERY MUCH,,,

Love, Cerenity

Cerenity also if you visit anywhere else. Like for instance that Tools link, you can put the addy in by typing, or going to the link and clicking on it. When the page opens up, I assume from what you said by clicking the e, you're using Internet Explorer, so when the page opens up, go to the top there where it says favorites and click it.

Then just add to your favorites! Now when you want to go back to that page, click your favorites, and it should drop down with a list of things you've saved there to visit. Find the name of the site you wish to go and click it, and it shall take you to that site.

I hope all this has helped, and if you need more help, let me know ok?
