Currently I know how to open individual pages in my server directory and edit with Dreamweaver, but can't navigate with the links. Does Dreamweaver 6 have an "import" or copy feature for an entire website?

thanks

are you wanting to click a link in dreamweaver and then dreamweaver to load that page in design view ???

Yes, but click a link on the web page within the design view window for example.

This is an extra nice feature, remember that the design view is not a browser.
Why don't you keep a local copy of your website to work on? You should never work directly on the server. This way you have a local developing environment, and when you're happy with your changes/updates, you upload them to server.

Thanks folks for great info,

When I right click on the various links then click on "open linked page, I get an error message "invalid path".

these are from uclaim.com:

<td colspan="2" width="533" height="30" align="left" valign="bottom">
<a href="free.asp?b=1"><img src="images/enemy-blue.jpg" border="0"></a><a href="advice.asp?b=2"><img src="images/rate-blue.jpg" border="0"></a></a><a href="ron.asp?b=3"><img src="images/who-blue.jpg" border="0"></a></td>

Yes, they are in the uclaim root directory, the same as the default.asp home page from which I posted the code links.
