    Can't change a linked image???


      I have a lot left to learn in Dreamweaver but linking images I've done alot, I hope someone can help me on what I'm doing wrong.  The linked image won't let me change links.  Here is the home page http://kmmcement.com/.  The bottom right picture under click to view slideshow is linked to slideshow.html.  I changed the slideshow and named the new one ss.html.  When I right click the picture and choose Change Link and select my new ss.html, it does not change it in the code.  I tried manually to change it in the code and publish, but the new page won't load up (although when I preview the page, it loads fine.)


      The only thing I've done differently on this site is that I finally learned to get the bottom navigation links to work without looking jumpy and jittery when clicking or rolling over them, by going to Modify - Page Properties and choosing links and set them up there (basic that I should've learned awhile ago).  I didn't do the navigation bar until last, so would that have anything to do with not being able to change the link?  If so, then how can I change it to where only the bottom navigation has it's own style as I'm sure there's going to be alot more links I'm going to be adding.


      Thank you in advance for any help. (By the way, I'm using Dreamweaver CS3)

          I'm not too keen on publishing pages via Dreamweaver--I simply do the coding of the page

          by hand and preview it using a browser and then use an FTP program to upload the page and the associated images to the website server.  What methods are you using to publish?  Can you get your hands on an FTP program like Firefox's free FireFTP software and create relative links in your html and copy the exact site structure to your server via the FTP program?  If you do that will the changes show up on the new web page?

            Starting on line 215 of your code, you have this:


            <td height="338"><div align="center">
            <p class="style11">CLICK TO VIEW SLIDESHOW!</p>
            <p><a href="slideshow.html"><img 
            src="images/slideshowpic.JPG" width="347" height="223" 


            Try changing it to this:


            <td height="338" style="text-align:center">
            <p class="style11"><a href="ss.html">CLICK TO VIEW SLIDESHOW!</a></p>
            <p><a href="ss.html"><img src="images/slideshowpic.JPG" width="347" height="223" border="0"/></a></p>


            Save.  Upload page to server along with ss.html page.  Hit refresh in your browser.

              Thank you both for the quick responses but it's still not working.  I use CuteFTP to publish.  I just made changes to home page and published ok, but when I tried the code for the link, saved and published both the home and the ss.html, it still didn't work (but it worked when I previewed it in Dreamweaver).  I had to change the navigation buttons on the left side and I noticed I had to delete them and reinsert them to make the links because when I chose Change Link, it wouldn't. I even tried changing the name of the slideshow thinking that might have been the problem.


              Any more suggestions would be greatly appreciated!  Thank you!
