I am trying to fix an annoying little problem that I've been dealing with for months but haven't taken the time to deal with until now:
Sometimes I upload PDFs to a website and make links to them. My client prefers that I leave the file names alone. Sometimes, they're a little long, such as this:
but, rather annoyingly, Dreamweaver shortens it to this when I link it up:
This happens for almost every file unless the name is quite short. It's a HUGE problem, because when I upload everything, the links are showing up as broken because the links have all been automatically shortened.
WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?!?
In order to make it work, I have to type it in myself, which is an enormous waste of time - especially when you have 20 or 25 files to post. Is there any way to turn this extremely irritating "feature" off??
That fragment at the end looks suspiciously like a hex color code e.g. #538BED
Can you provide a link to an example page?
I upload similarly named files without any problems so I wonder if it's workflow, filename or DW related. Which version of DW, PC or Mac? Are the links correct before you upload the page?
