Anyway, I know the command to pull up the file names in shtml but thats as far as I can get. I am still trying to figure out were the var file comes into play. I here the help about changing the directories but I cannot figure it out. Can anyone offer any pointers that aren't already listed on this forum, Thanks

var file? it is where you are now...
search for a file and go into it

I have completed only one step. I have found the command to enter into the "enter your name" field which then brings up the .shtml files. From there I am lost. I have went over this entire forum again and again but cannot figure this out. I do not want the answer, I want to do it myself but maybe just a better hint.

Here is some basic explorer information: (Hope it doesn't spoil the test)

Go to your windows explorer, and NAVIGATE to a directory. Do not type the path.
Then go to the adress bar and add "/../" (without the quotes). If you did it by navigating, it should take you to a familiar looking directory.

EDIT: Got it! It's so easy...

remember google is your friend. before you click on a basic mission it gives you the skills needed. my first step is to always run a google search on the skills then read the articles you need to pin down the basics. Not all the missions can be done quickly the point of them is to teach you something. so before you look for a quick fix. try to learn some skills instead of rushing through these things missions.
