Interestingly enough I was able to fix this on one machine by randomly toggling the live code/view buttons, havent had any luck doing that to other machines though.
I would have to say that this operation could not possibly fix anything. I suspect that simply waiting the same amount of time as this operation required would have returned the same result, and it sounds like there is some latency in your network.
Your site is entirely contained on a network shared drive, right? Or is it that only SOME files are on the network shared drive (R:)? Also, where is it you are seeing this?
Hi Murray, thanks for the reply. Network latency could be the issue, as it mostly seems to be effecting remote users connecting to the network share via 3G.
The entire site is located on the network shared drive (html files and the relatively linked styles / scripts).
The reference to "Address: file:///R|/acrrm/tinnitus/course_content/001.html" is located in Dreamweaver underneath the Code/Split/Design view button row, it displays the address/filename of the current file open, the begning looked a bit unusual to me.
The beginning part of that address indicates that DW DOESN'T THINK THAT FILE IS WITHIN THE ROOT OF THE SITE. What is the path to your local root folder in your site definition?
Hmm that would support the thoery that there was network connectivity issues, the path to the local root folder in the site definition is:
Local Site Folder: R:\
We have found an alternative solution to this in using remote desktop rather than a VPN connection but I'm still interested in finding out what exactly caused it, at this point I think you are right with the network latency.
Good luck with your issue and your solution. My standard configuration on my LAN is with a remote shared (mapped) drive running as my testing server (and sometimes as my root drive too). In my case that drive is mapped to the "U:" drive. I have no problem at all with this configuration, so I know it works OK in theory.
