Default Remote Site Set Up

I'm a very beginner here...a graphic designer who inherited the website. I've designed website before, but never have set up the site itself. So, I'm using Dreamweaver & the Wrox Beginning Dreamweaver Program. Mostly, its working, but I am having difficulty on an issue.

At work I am using a PC Windows 2000 platform. Prior to installing MS IIS, the preview windows worked fine--I could see the images, etc. Since I installed IIS, however, none ofamz the images are appearing, only an icon with an x, and in one case, no icon, just the outline of the table row where the image is supposed to be.

Hi Anne,

I think this is what's happening:

You create a page on your "Local View" in Dreamweaver and then add images to it

Next, you preview the page in the browser. When that happens, the page is sent to the remote host and opened in the browser. You probably browse to something like http://localhost/MyPage.html

The images show up as broken, because they only exist locally, and not on the "remote server". Note that remote server can also be on the same machine, but you might be using a different folder.

To fix this, select your images in Dreamweaver on the File panel, right-click and choose Put. This will send them to the web folder for the remote host.....
