I have been tasked with creating a website for a school project, I am not so familiar with coding and Dreamweaver specifically. I was wondering if anyone can help me fix the errors on my website. I have attached the images.Capture.PNGCapture 2.PNG

Paths to assets are pointing to  files on your local computer which nobody can see except you.  That's usually a symptom of not defining your local site folder before starting a project.

file:///D|/Images....

That path should be just

Images/file_name.png

Your files and folder names  cannot contain any spaces or special characters (&*%^$#) as that is not allowed in HTML5.   But you may use hyphens or underscores if needed.

Please refer to the  tutorial below for reference.

I think that there are a few issues as far as I can see from the screen shots.

One issue is that you may not have defined a site in Dreamweaver. For more see Define a site |

The other issue is the code which has errors. The best way to see these errors is to check the code here The W3C Markup Validation Service
