    Buttons point to the wrong directory

    black6pack69
      I created a website for a client, and working from my computer everything works fine. Once everything was transferred to the clients computer I started having problems. When I export the Fireworks buttons into an htm document (on their computer), and then insert the buttons into the template page, all the buttons point to the "templates" directory instead of the main directory. It looks like this "www.website.com/templates/webpage.htm" how do I fix this. On the clients computer no matter how or where I export the buttons.htm document, once inserted into the template page, all the buttons point to the template directory.

          Nobody? Did I stump the entire Macromedia team?

            Macromedia team?
            There is none.

            Adobe team members do not typically visit here. If you have a technical
            issue then you'll need to contact them directly.

              I have found that the "address" code generated by the Fireworks export is not generally usable, ie it may work from one location but when you put it in a different folder the address is relative and so doesn't work.

              I have had to manually edit the code to point to site root addresses before I could incorporate it.
              Also found that in Fireworks 8 I had to type the addresses for links, there is no browse option.
              Also it exports the images to the images folder but doesn't have an option for site root addressing. It is almost as if the Fireworks and Macromedia teams are from different planets.

                That's the way document relative links work.

                Fireworks was developed for creating Web images. It is not a WYSIWYG or
                any other kind of HTML editor. Use Dreamweaver for this kind of markup.
