I am evaluating CS6 and when after uploading a webpage, the URL changed from when it was uploaded in CS4. My assumption is something in the settings, but I couldn't find it. Under "sites" it says "links relative to document" -- not the other options of site root.
Has a link in it that references
<a href="myspace.com">Click Here</a>
In the HTML, it states myspace.com, but after upload the URL is mywebsite.com/myspace.com
The only time this doesn't happen is if I use http://myspace.com as the URL
Is there a KB doc that explains this. I now have to review all exterior links across all the websites I work on.
That has nothing to do with the version of DW you are using - it is to with correctly coding the URL. The http:// in front is the CORRECT way to write that URL. Everything you described above is right with the code you have given it.
For reference, the http:// specifies an external link - it is an absolute URL. Anything else specifies a link within the site you have created - a relative URL (relative to the page in the site you are linking from). By simply using href="myspace.com" it will look for the page at location YourSite/myspace.com.
