    New website help

    seklum

      Ok so I am new to adobe dreamworks, I have cs4, but there is a problem that I can't find in google, ***, or help...

       

      I have all my stuff ready for the site, its created and stuff, (except preview doesn't work but I don't care about that)

       

      But when I upload my stuff to the site, Nothing works.

       

      On the homepage I have a paragraph, and a spry menu bar. There is my logo at the top. I upload to selected files, with the homepage as index.html, however, the only thing that shows up on the website is the paragraph of text.

       

      Any help?

       

      Also sometimes when I open a folder it automatically starts checking out stuff... which is really annoying.

          So preview doens't work, which you don't care about, and the site doesn't work, which you do care about?

           

          Got a link or something we can look at?

                There are several problems. For one, your home page is referencing this image:

                ../Images/logo.png

                That path doesn't make sense since the homepage is already at the root. Check to make sure your site is defined correctly
                Did you add those images to your site folder?

                Another problem is that you are using an include on an html page. Most servers do not parse html pages for
                includes. Check with your host control panel to see if you can configure your server to parse .html files.

                  I have my html files in /public_html and the images in /Images   Is that how its supposed to be?

                   

                  And I couldn't find anything about parsing html files, I really am new to this.

                   

                  All new info would be appreciated.

                    Is your Image folder below the /public_html folder, or at the same level?  If your server had a predefined folder called public_html, then that is the folder where ALL of the site files are intended to go. You can create subfolders below that to organize your files, but everything must go within the defined site folders.

                     

                    Contact your host about parsing .html files for includes if you can't find anything in the control panel. They may tell you flat out that you can't do it. If that's the case, then you have other options but let's not go there until you find out.

                      Looks like your remote site definition is wrong in DW and you don't need a public_html folder on your local computer.

                       

                      In the Host directory (shows "users/johndoe/" bleow), you should have "public_html".

                       

                      ds_ftp_sample[1].png

                       

                      All that should be visible in the Remote View are the files stored inside the public_html folder.

                       

                      So your local view should show:

                       

                      Donate.html

                      Header.html

                      index.html

                      Menubarinsert.html

                      !- SpryAssets (folder)

                      !- Images (folder)

                       

                      Also, there's no need to upload the Templates folder. Only Dreamweaver uses that.

                            Got a link?

                             

                            What exact code is inside Menubarinsert.html?

                                Looks like it's not setup because I can see this in your code which means it is not being processed"

                                <!--#include file="Menubarinsert.html" -->



                                You could try using an .htaccess file to control what file extensions are parsed:

                                  I read half of the first page, and nothing made sense... Renaming them to .shtml didn't do anything and it is really anoying!

                                    Before you run off on other potential wild goose chases and get increasingly frustrated, let's first confirm some fundamentals.

                                     

                                    If the fundamentals are not in place, none of your tinkering will have any success.

                                     

                                    Can you confirm that your file structure, locally and remotely, is now correct?

                                     

                                    Please post an updated screenshot showing your file structure in your local and remote views in DW.

                                      Looks OK.

                                       

                                      What is the link to the website?

                                        What page did you rename to .shtml? Can you upload it to your site and post a link?

                                          Ok, I had them renamed icorrectly, Now they work perfectly fine.... Thanks for all your help, but one last thing, Why can't I insert tables, images, etc. on the same line as the insert?
