Hi Guys, I need your help big time!
I’m very new to Dreamweaver (cs4) so please excuse my lack of technical verbiage.
I’m trying to create a link to the “NW” on this page: http://unionresourcecenter.com/mi/macomb/
As you can see once you click on the “NW” it takes you to an index page: http://unionresourcecenter.com/mi/macomb/nwmacomb/
However, I need that index page to look like this one: http://unionresourcecenter.com/mi/montcalm_gratiot_ionia/
You will notice the difference between the current index and the one I need to replicate is that the images and header do not show except for a red x in the corner.
Pretty much everything else is the same.
The odd thing is when I create the “nwmacomb” file outside of “macomb” the index looks perfect. It’s not until I bring the “nwmacomb” file into the “macomb” file that the index changes (side photos and header disappear).
I’m totally out of ideas, I’ve tried deleting and re-making the files but that doesn’t work.
If you have any suggestions or fixes I would love to hear it.
I appreciate your time and your help!!!!
When you put pages into sub-folders or sub sub-folders, you must adjust the path to images and other assets accordingly. The good news is that DW typically does this for you, providing you're working within a defined local site folder. If DW isn't doing this for you, go to Site > Manage Sites > New > and tell DW where your site folder is located on your hard drive.
Your paths to your CSS files and other resources like images are not correct. This suggests that you may have either not setup your site correctly, or more likely, have moved this page to a new location outside of DW. In other words, if you moved or copied the page from the mi folder into macomb folder from within DW, DW would have recalcuated the links. If you moved it manually with a different tool (Windows Explorer for example), then the links will be wrong.
Thank you for your quick response! I have tried your suggestion and it didn't make the images appear. I have done this same process before with no problems so that's what really throws me for a loop. I havent changed any DW settings or did anything outside of DW.
I'll keeop trying and again I do appreciate your reply. Thanks!!
Thank you for your reply. You may be on to something but I have never copied files from anywhere other than DW. So as you said DW should have recalculated the links. I quess I'll have to keep messing with it until I figure it out.
Like I said im new to DW so Im sure im missing something right in front of my face.
Your awesome for taking the time to respond, thank you mucho!
Good Morning Bregent, Thank you so much for helping me out! I greatly appreciate it. I apologize for not responding sooner, I had to leave work not long after posting. I wanted to let you know that I did indeed copy the “macomb” file and renamed it “nwmacomb”. Before I moved the “nwmacomb” file into the “macomb” file I checked the index and it was just fine. It wasn’t until I moved the “nwmacomb” file into the “macomb” file that the index changed. I think that move was done by cutting “nwmacomb” and pasting it into the “macomb” file. If I understood correctly you’re saying that by cutting and pasting I lost the original links and layout? Would you let me know how I can go about fixing that problem without having to recreate everything in the file? Thanks Again,
Thanks again for all your help, I finally got it!!!! Wahooo...
I can't tell you how grateful I am.
Heres the "nwmacomb file looking just like it should!
Thanks Nancy O,
Both you and Bregent offered solutions that helped me fix this issue. Thank You so very much. In the end, it was the way that I copied the files and the image links and the style.css not attached to the correct file. I've got plenty of help here on this forum...you all rock!
