Can't you post a live example with a detailed description of the actual problem?

I don't hope that you actually think I can suggest something useful based on this mainly black image?? ;)

Sorry, but I don't have an ISP right now. Can you suggest some free web space I can use to upload a single page version of my site?

Sorry, no I can't. I don't have much experience with free hosts...

I seem to be having continuous problems with Dreamweaver. I don't know if it is because I am completely stupid, or the program is full of bugs. So far I have managed to fix the faults I've mentioned above, only by restarting my site from scratch each time. Of course, I'm getting fed up of this, as I've now had to do it on 3 occasions. Now another problem has reared it's ugly head, as the templates I've made are not updating the pages they're based on - even though the save dialogue box says it has.

Should I go to the Macromedia site and download a patch?

Hi there,

Getting the latest service pack for Dreamweaver is always a good idea, although it certainly doesn't fix all the issues.

You can get the latest SP here: http://www.adobe.com/support/dreamwe...aters.html#dw8

I've download the update, but now I have yet another problem (ugh!) Now all the image files in my site are missing whenever I preview the thing in a browser. I'm not using a remote site or anything like that. It's not connected to a server either. I have the files on the desktop of my PC, and this has worked well before. I've tried to 'put' the files and that didn't work. I've looked through all the menus and tried to adjust things in the preferences, but nothing has worked. This problem started after I tried to apply a style sheet to a page.

I dunno what to do now. :( :(

If you look at the HTML in the *browser*, where do the images point to? Is that a valid location?

The path doesn't look right. It should be something like this:
file:///C:/DocumentsandSettings/MyComputer/Desktop/mysite/images/feather1.gif

But it's this instead:
file:///images/feather1.gif


I dunno if I've changed something by accident.

When you insert an image, you have the option to insert the image as relative to the document, or as relative to the site root. Maybe you changed that option?

However, IMO, this:

file:///C:/DocumentsandSettings/MyComputer/Desktop/mysite/images/feather1.gif

isn't an ideal path to an image, as it only allows you to view the image on *your* computer. Things will break when you put things on-line.

I think you're better off setting up a Site in Dreamweaver and optionally use a web server like IIS. You'll find that things are then a lot easier to maintain...

Hi Imar,

I've finally finished (sort of) my site. When you have time, take a look at it here: www.britfunkheaven.org.uk
