Using Dreamweaver CS6.
I just gave my client web interface edit capabilities on their new site using web interface to Admin (they are a user not an admin) . They made simple text changes and published. All fine. They requested a small template change which I made today and uploaded just the template from Dreamweaver. (I did not want to update the local files because user has changed some content)..
I then decided to download one of the html files, from BC server, that the client had made changes to so as to update my own copy of that file in Dreamweaver. When I looked at the file in Dreamweaver it appeared to be disconnected from the template file AND css file
Now the site was built in DW with links relative to site root.
So this the the difference for the CSS file
In the original DW created file the link is - link href="twoColFixLtHdr.css"
In the same file downloaded from BC the link has been changed to link href="../twoColFixLtHdr.css" and will NOT apply CSS rule within DW once uploaded from the BC server.
Clearly the "../" has been added to the imported CSS file and it will not Read the CSS file unless I link it again within DW which is ridiculous
The same applies to images paths within the locked template area of the file; BC has added the prefix "../" and the images will not display.
I am not sure how to fix this and prevent future issues. Is my worlflow incorrect? How is one then supposed to keep local copies (on DW) of files maintained by users on the BC server using Site Manager/Site Editor.
When working with BC to avoid several issues and with the way the BC team first built the system with a clever implimentation and to avoid code editors changing it...
All paths you reference should always be ..... "/folder/sytle.css" or "/filegoeshere" etc.
No ... etc, can work but when your moving about etc these sorts of things will happen.
