Hello Everybody.

 

Whenever I do a preview of my website, for example, if I do a preview of an "about us" page, it works fine, but when I click on "about us" from its own like on the "home" page it shows up all...gone.

I Will post pictures below

 

The picture on the right is from when I access from link.

The picture on the left is when I preview that exact page.

    Looks like broken paths to CSS and images.  But we can't be sure without seeing your code.

     

    Did you define your local site folder in DW before you started this project?

    Also, don't use spaces in folder or filenames.  This can create problems.  If you want to separate words, use a - hyphen or _underscore.

    Best way to get help is to upload your problem page to the web amd post a link so we can view it in our browsers.

     

    Second best is to post the code here on the forums.

    It is not easy to tell what a problem is without seeing the code and the best way of doing that is to give a link to a live page.

     

    However, a guess would be that the way your paths are formed in any of your links is wrong.  Links to your images, CSS and maybe other files.

     

    Did you define your site before starting out?  It is a good idea to do so.  Are your paths correctly formed within the context of your site structure?  Maybe things are pointing to your hard drive - it sometimes happens.

     

    If none of that helps, post your code please.

    Upload the page to the web and then we can see everything.

    Create a folder named "test" on your existing website.

     

    Upload the problem page to the test folder.

     

    Fix the page via the forum.

     

    Delete the page from the test folder.
