If you moved your web site to another hosting provider, or upgraded to our Web Hosting service, and you find that links from one part of your site to another are broken, your site likely uses absolute links. (If you used PageBuilder to create your site, you are almost certainly using absolute links.)
An absolute link includes the full URL of the destination (the page, email address, or file to which it is linking), such as http://www.geocities.com/widgetdesigns/page1.html. An absolute link is designed to reach its target from no matter where you browse.
Absolute links in your GeoCities site always include your GeoCities web address (such as http://www.geocities.com/widgetdesigns). If your site is no longer hosted with GeoCities, the link will never be able to find its target, so the link will break, and you'll see an error instead of your intended destination when you click on it.
Fixing Your Links and Images
You can fix the paths in your links and images in several ways:
If you used PageBuilder to create your site, and you moved your site to our Web Hosting service, you can update your links by opening PageBuilder, then opening and resaving each page of your site. You'll find a link to PageBuilder in the Other Site Building Tools section of the Create & Update tab of your Web Hosting Control Panel.
If you didn't use PageBuilder, or you moved to a different hosting provider, you can update your links manually by replacing your GeoCities web address in the beginning of each link with your new site's web address.
For example, if you decide to move your GeoCities site to a new host and publish with the personalized domain name learn2yoga.com, you'd replace the GeoCities address in your link (geocities.com/widgetdesigns/) with your new address (learn2yoga.com).
old link: http://www.geocities.com/widgetdesigns/page1.html
new link: http://www.learn2yoga.com/page1.html
Finally, you may prefer to change your site to use only relative links. A relative link refers to the destination of a link as it relates to the current document — it's sort of like link shorthand. If you link to a file in the same directory in your site, you can specify the file name instead of the complete URL of the destination (page1.html instead of http://www.learn2yoga.com/page1.html, for example). If a file is stored in a different directory, you'll just need to add the other directory's name (directory2/page2.html).
Note: We recommend opening your web site files in a simple HTML-editing program such as Notepad to search for and replace your links.
