    Problems with Folder Structure

    macapples
      I am using the following structure:

      www.mysite.com/products/new-product.com

      My navigation has these 2 buttons products | servuces

      when I put the links in and test locally it ends up going:

      If I'm on my product page trying to go to services page.... www.mysite.com/products/services/services.html

      why does it stay within the product folder when i've explicitly set the link to http://www.mysite.com/services/services.html?

      Many Thanks!

            If you want to type an example domain name, please use http://example.com or
            other domain names that are reserved for this and not owned by someone.

            In this case, please give the actual code in the page, or better, links to
            the uploaded pages.

            A random guess is may have to do with using site root relative paths, and
            not enabling "preview with temp files" in dw prefs->preview in browser.
            Or you are using site root relative paths, it works when you click the first
            time, but then you are on the actual file from the hard drive, not a temp
            preview file.

            post code or links please.
            If the link starts with a leading /slash, it is a site root relative paths.
            There is a pulldown in the "browse to file" dialog box to use a document
            relative path instead of site root relative.
