How do I get my new published website to show up from "view my Website" ?

I created a website a few years ago under Verizon and have since unpublished it.  I started a new website which I've worked on a little and now published it.  When I click "view my website" on verizon's website the old one shows up.  When I click the "edit my website" the new one comes up.  How do I get the old one to go away.  It does not show up on my list of websites only under the view category.  I have cleared my entire cookies/temp/cache.  What next?

I am not sure, but I think I know.

After you click on edit this page, be sure to click on publish.

I did say in my original post that I had "published the new page".  Still the old page shows up with the words "NOT FOUND" at the top.  That page is no longer published but still shows up as my site.???

Ok, I noitced something about my site.

The Site builder added in /mypersonalsite/ to the URL of my site.

So for example if my website is http://mysite.verizon.net/some_user_name/ the new URL of my webpage would be http://mysite.verizon.net/some_user_name/mypersonalsite/

If you do not like their site builder, [word filter aviodance] like I don't - use a FTP client to upload your own HTML code.

See as need be,

Lets see if I can make this more clear:  The first website I made (using verizon sitebuilder) (since making this site I've "un-publixhed it") is showing up under "view my website".   Ok, now I made a new website (using verizon sitebuilder) and gave the website a different name and published it     Now, here's the problem:  when i click "view my website" on the personal website page I get the original first website I made instead of the new one.  I have published the new one and unpublished the old one, so I don't know why the old one shows up?

Also, its weird that when I click "edit my website" the new one comes up for editing.  This is why its strange that the old one still comes up under "view".  .

Ok, I see what you mean.

The only fix that I can see is to use a FTP client.

#1 With the FTP Client, download the contents of your sub directory. Let say it is

ftp://ftpmysite.verizon.net/MyPersonalSiteCopy.

#2 Then with a FTP Client, re-upload the contents to the upper directory.

ftp://ftpmysite.verizon.net

^^^

If you are having a hard time understanding these directions, I can take some screens shots on my comptuer using one of my account(s). Then I can show you, what I mean...

It seems to me that Verizon has the information stored in its cache and it simply needs to be cleared.  I'm thinking that the normal customer only makes one website and doesn't change it like I did, so they don't see a need to ever eliminate the original?  Maybe?

 In my opinion, the website tools are pretty limited and simplistic, so I'll probably just bypass it altogether and take another route in setting up my website.

Your second site was probably published to a sub directory instead of the main site. Look at the url listed in Site Builder.

It should be: http://mysite.verizon.net/<vzid>/

Nothttp://mysite.verizon.net/<vzid>/<somethingelse>/

If there's anything after your id, you need to un-publish the site and re-publish it at the base directory. The "View My Website" link only displays the page located at http://mysite.verizon.net/<vzid>/

Hope this helps!

I'm a new Site Builder user, but I've seen a similar error.

I Published a test site to Myname (Root) webspace, then deleted it. Then I made a new site and Published it to Myname/new-directory. I've tried to change the PersonalWebSpace 'Update Settings' option to point to new-directory/index.html. But when I use PWS 'View my Site', it shows me the OLD test page!

A related problem - I saved a Site Builder 'Copy' of my site for backup.

I might want to Publish the copy in a different directory name, but if I 'Publish' the copied site, it does not ask me for a new name - it just OVERWRITES my operating site! Any way to work around that?

Or isit just that Verizon and Trellix bit me?   😜
