    Apparent cloning effect with sites

    Wadyaro

      Hi all

      I have a few pages designed with dreamweaver.

      Lets say for example I save an html page an name it index.html.

      I then use the "save as" function and save it again to make a copy that I can modify and work on without losing the original version, lets say for example I "save as ...index2.html.

      Problem is when I try to make a copy  in this way, even with a new name, it kind of clones the original page and any modifications applied to index.html also occur in index2.html.

      Is there a correct way to copy a file in some other name so that it remains in its own state unaffected by changes to the other page?

      Many thanks

      W

          File > Save As works for me every time. Creates a new independent page.

           

          What exactly are you modifying in index2.html and how do you see the change in index.html?

           

          If it's unique content in index2.html that's being modified, I don't see how that can get changed in index.html.
