HELP! Dreamweaver template won't load in Chrome !

May 25, 2011 7:24 PM

Hi guys,


I'm VERY VERY new to web design and to Dreamweaver! I've managed to somehow put together a template and connect to a remote FTP site trhough Dreamweaver. The site already had an index page using a different template. I created a new template then applied to the index page so now I have a newly design index/home page. It opens fine in internet explorer however not in Chrome! It looks like the template isn't loading in Chrome or something!


This is my site


Can anyone help me?!?!

    Two things for you:


    1)  why is template uploaded on a remote site?  Templates are to enable you to work on your desktop and then upload the completed site/page to your server.


    2)  Looking at your source code, it is still linking to css and js files on your desktop.  the links in question are:


    "file:///C|/Documents and Settings/design/Desktop/hanhan.css"
    "file:///C|/Documents and Settings/design/Desktop/hanhan2_files/css3menu1/style.css"
    "file:///C|/Documents and Settings/design/Desktop/Scripts/AC_RunActiveContent.js"

    "file:///J|/Hannah/Web/GlowCrazy/Root/Images/banner2 copy.jpg"

    and others I won't bother to go through everyone of them.

    I suggest correct these errors and then repost with a new link.  at present the site is unviewable even in IE8, and FF4.

    In addition to what has been noted, I am also seeing all of your images suffering from HTML scaling. There's no need to scale a 1000x300 px image down to 165x42 in the HTML. That wastes bandwidth. Images should be saved at 100% view.


    Newer versions of Dreamweaver can assist with image resampling.

    THANK YOU!!!

    I was having the same problem where my site was working perfectly in IE but not in Chrome, Safari or Firefox.

    I looked in my CSS styles file and found that I had local links too!

    This had me stumped for weeks.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to help.

    very happy
