I am having an issue with Contribute CS3 that i have been
unable to solve.
It should be a simple fix but in this case it does not seem
I have a website that used to sit on a certain URL, let's say
I had contribute pointing to this site in order to test it's
operation with the new website.
Now the website is live and has been moved to its new
location at www.mycustomer.com.
However when i remove the old connection from the 'My
Connections' panel and then add it with the new credentials
Contribute points it to the original url of
www.developmentserver.ie/mycustomer. At no point during the
configuration of the new connection did i enter that URL.
Please note that i have completely removed the original
website from the My Connections panel and have even tried shutting
down and restarting both the application and my computer itself.
What happens is that when i click on my homepage connection
that should hold the correct ftp info i get taken to the original
development server even though it has no connection details for
this version of the website anymore and even if i wanted to the
'edit' button is greyed out in favour of the 'connect' button.
When i type the correct url directly into the URL bar i do
get taken to the correct website and i am able to edit it.
I need for the homepage link to point to the correct URL.
I have tried amending the registry entry but the information
contained there is correct and it does point to the correct site.
If anyone could help me with this i'd be grateful.
I think the thing you should check is the homepage defined in
1. in the main menu go to >Edit>Administer websites
2. go to Users and Roles
3. pick your role and click 'Edit Role Settings'
4. in this screen find 'Home page for users in this role' and
chage that to the proper url
