    The message is that the "URL is mistyped." My hub loads  in Firefox and Yahoo! browsers.
    Also, of the three browsers I run - Yahoo! seems to load everything best. As I said, IE 7 doesn't load at all (it loads briefly for 3-5 seconds w/ Google ads before above message) and Firefox loads the page but not the Google ads. Is the IE7 problem a browser issue? Is the Firefox problem also a browser issue/

      The AT&T browser.. is basically just a decorated page that is run on top of the internet explorer page. It is provided through AT&T when you use them as your ISP. smile

    Hi Rustee and welcome to HubPages.  Sometimes Internet Explorer does weird things so I wouldn't worry about it - you'll probably find it work fine next time you try.

    If I can make a couple of suggestions about your Hub - one of the great things about HubPages is that you can use photographs, or even videos.  If you break your text up into several text capsules and add photo capsules either in between or floated to the right, you'll be able to add photos to illustrate the process, which will make it much easier to understand.

    If you're not sure how to use capsules, this Hub provides a great explanation:

    It's worth checking out Darkside's other Hubs on Hubbing, as well - they're all good.

    My other point - I can see you're writing your Hub in a chatty style and that's a valid choice.  However if a reader was actually trying to build the sink, I think it would get annoying because it's so hard to find the basic instructions between the chatty comments.

    I'd recommend taking a hard look at the Hub and doing some serious editing.  At the very least, you need to break it up into more paragraphs.  Your headings are good but some things seem to be in the wrong order - why not put "Materials and Tools" under "Off to Home Depot", which is when you're going to need it?  I also wouldn't waste space on adding individual prices, because it won't apply to everyone, and certainly not your overseas readers - you could indicate the total price instead.

    Personally, I'd lose some of the chat (like, almost all your first paragraph), because I think the Hub is long enough without it, especially once you've added photos and created more paragraphs - but that's my personal opinion.

    See what happens when you post on these forums?  People pull your Hubs to bits!  smile
    Good luck!

    Yahoo! is the default browser that came with my AT&T ISP. It's also, I'm sure you know, a search engine. It handles my email program also. Russ

    Thanks for your comments. You're very right on several points. For now, I have split up some of the paragraphs which makes for a much easier read. I skimmed the hub page you suggested and looks like what I need - thanks.
    By the way, none of the Hub pages will load via IE7 - not only just my page. I guess it's an IE7 browser problem. Russ

    A fairly large percentage of our users use IE7, so I think it must be something peculiar to the settings in the copy of IE7 that you are using.  However, without more information it's hard to guess exactly what the problem may be ...

    I also use EI7 and everything works fine for me, for the most part. If I have a problem in the editor, I can refresh and that fixes it. Not sure why it works for so many and not a few. I hope you get it reslved soon.
