I have totally redone the index page for my site and I'd like to replace the old file with the new.

Is there an easy way to do this that won't mess up all of my links? I can't just rename the old file and then the new file without out DW 'updating' my links automatically can I?

Thanks....

*assuming your new file is in the same relative location as the old file* - i.e. in the site root then -
open the new file and then 'save as', replacing the old file with the new one (

(newfile.html and save it as index.html (or whatever the old file was called))

Yes, that makes a lot of sense. I thought that there was an easy way.
Thanks!

Always save your old file though - sometime things don't always work out how we think, and just saving over the old file leaves you nothing to revert back to if you some how bugger things up. Keep a back up!

Amen to that. Thanks, I did!
