This may be too obvious for most people but I'm stumped. Why can't I add a third party cgi script to my website?
It's a simple enough site search script, csScript. On my website, local side, I created a directory in Dreamweaver MX called cgi-bin. Next, in Windows I copied all files and subdirectories into the cgi-bin directory. When I look for the files in Dreamweaver, they're missing. They're not part of the website, and no one is going to make Dreamweaver recognize that they're part of the site, no way.
So, there's no visible way, no way that I can see, to add the script files to my website. Nor does there appear to be any help anywhere on the Internet. If the problem is too simple to see, aren't the next 100 people going to make exactly the same mistake?
I may have a partial answer myself. I recently tried disabling a number of startup items because something eats up time and memory and I wanted my machine to run faster. If I disabled an adobe program that checks for consistency between the windows directories and adobe dreamweaver's idea of a directory, that may cause the issue.
I have reloaded dreamweaver mx, no change.
I had a new image which I put in an image directory. Again, dreamweaver doesn't see the new file. I can only use existing images. When I physically type the directory/filename of the new image into a Dreamweaver html file, it doesn't see it.
More news: I have just touched up all copies of a .jpg image with a couple of blue pixels, courtesy of msPaint. When I preview the image in Dreamweaver the image is unchanged. This trick isn't easy for a computer to do. Somehow the image has to be cached someplace.
