In Dreamweaver CS5 and earlier, when I replied "yes" to uploading to my remote server dpendent files, it only uploaded a new or changed file. Now if I say "yes" it looks at every file on my site and decides whether to upload it or not to transfer it. It looks at every file that is connected to the navigation bar on the bottom of every page. I have tried to let it upload, unsynchronize my files and then synchronize them again incase the dates were wrong.
Is this new to Dreamweaver CS6 or can someone tell me how to configure it so it can be set to upload dependent files, but it only looks at new or changed files as did all prior versions.
I am working on a Windows 7 computer 64-bit.
Can you set up a test site with just a couple of files, making some of them proper dependent files, and others of them simply linked pages? Then try uploading a page and let's see which files get uploaded.
Thanks for the reply. I have been using Dreamweaver since it was a baby with Macromedia and this never happened before. In CS6 it did try to upload the entire site not just the files necessary or the current page. I did fix the problem, see below.
I solved the issue by uploading in a different manner than I did with previous versions. I hope what I wrote below helps.
First I now have checked both Prompt to Get and Prompt to Put in Preferences. Now, if I state that dependent files should upload, all (even those not newer than on the remote) will upload unless I press "Cancel." If I click on "No to All," they will still go through the process of trying to upload as in the screen capture below. To stop this, I have to state "Yes" on dependent files; say "Yes" to those I want uploaded which would be the newer and changed files, and then hit "Cancel" when it to asks for all the others connected to that page which basically included all files on my site since I have a navigation bar on each page. As I stated, if I say "No" or "No to All," it will still go through all the files.
The above now works for me perfectly even though it adds some steps.
