Thank you all for your comments and suggestions. I tried a couple of them to no success, probably because I am not very tech savy.

I just went to my website and it appears to be back to normal.

Edit: Nevermind, it is not loading again. IDK how I was able to get it to load, but it loaded my site perfectly and now has the same problems as before.

Chances are Tripod does not allow server side scripting. If his site was "attacked" it would have been tripods servers that were attacked.

Having said all that what you're seeing is ads injected into your pages by tripod. One issue that may arise is your HTML is not compatible with ad code they are injecting. For example one issue I've been aware of in the past is free forum hosts injecting ads in to all php pages from phpbb, the issue is the stylesheet use the php extension. Plays nice in IR becuse IE will ignore it but completely breaks the stylesheet FF.

As suggested spend a few bucks and get a real host, you can a starter plan for about $5 a month with a lot of features.

try here for comparisons: Web Hosting Talk - The largest, most influential web hosting community on the Internet
Ah, thanks! Possibly I was thinking in terms of sites that allow outside interaction, such as a forum.

Nice site!

I notice that the web pages (some, not all) are too wide and don't adjust to screen resolution. The main page is off my screen in both FF and IE. The photo pages for Clay do the same thing. I'm at 1024x768

I used to have a code snippet that would read the resolution of the monitor viewing the page and adjust accordingly. If I still have it I'll post it here.

Here's the code I use to adjust which header graphics I display depending on the resolution of the monitor viewing it. Defaults to 800x600 if the resolution is not in the list. This was written in 2001 and does still work. Similar code can be used to adjust the entire page.

var width = screen.width;
var height = screen.height;
var d = this.window.document;

//document.write("You're set to "+width+ "X" +height+"");

{if (width == 640) {
var header="'Header_trajax640.gif'";
var logo="'NewLogo640.gif'";

} else if (width == 800) {
var header="'Header_trajax800.gif'";
var logo="'NewLogo800.gif'";

} else if (width == 1024) {
var header="'Header_trajax1024.gif'";
var logo="'NewLogo1024.gif'";

} else if (width == 1152) {
var header="'Header_trajax1152.gif'";
var logo="'NewLogo1152.gif'";

} else {var header="'Header_trajax800.gif'";
var logo="'NewLogo800.gif'";

}}

d.write('<p></p>');
d.write('</div align="center">');
d.write('<center>');
d.write('<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="700">');
d.write('<tr>');
d.write('<td width="120" align="center">');
d.write('<img border="0" src=');
d.write(logo);
d.write('>');

d.write('<td width="588" align="center">');
d.write('<img border="0" src=');
d.write(header);
d.write('>');

d.write('</tr>');

d.write('</table>');
d.write('</center>');
d.write('</div>');

This one stops someone from right clicking your page and seeing the code:

<!-- Start of no right click script -->
<script language="JavaScript">

<!--
// No rightclick script.
// Find more great scripts and applets at the JavaFile!
// JavaFile.com - free java scripts, java applets!
// Do not delete this header!

var message="Error! Cannot read file. Please check your browser settings.";

// Don't edit below!

function click(e) {
if (document.all) {
if (event.button == 2) {
alert(message);
return false;
}
}
if (document.layers) {
if (e.which == 3) {
alert(message);
return false;
}
}
}
if (document.layers) {
document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEDOWN);
}
document.onmousedown=click;
// -->

</script>
<!-- End of no right click script -->

That does not work in FF and most likely other browsers. Truthfully those right click scripts are really annoying. There's a lot more options on right click than just those that can be used to "steal" your source code or images. That's besides the fact you only have to click the "View source" from the view menu anyway.

In my case I use an extension for FF called firebug which is almost essential for web development. Showing the source code is one basic thing it does. You can even change it live to check for bugs and compatibility.

It was written in 2001. I didn't expect it to work forever.

Thanks, I'll have to look into that screen resolution problem.
