Hey guys, Thanks for the awesome info lately.. I tried to launch my site tonight and it ended in a problem. i'm using Dreamweaver 4. My problem is when I preview the site in Dreamweaver it looks perfect. But when I uploaded it all of the images are missing, including the background image. One thing I have noticed is I used frames in the site and after I did that the "Save as" option vanished and was replaced with "Save frames as" Normally when I save a site I choose "Save as" then make it my index.htm. I think my problem is somewhere there but I have no clue how to make the "Save as" option come back..
Thanks Again!

Make sure your image paths are correct. Right now you have the header image:
<img src="../../../Program%20Files/Macromedia/Dreamweaver%204/Tutorial/Compass_Site/mysticimpressions.jpg" width="702" height="94" border="2">

and should be:

]<img src="http://www.mystic-impressions.com/mysticimpressions.jpg" width="702" height="94" border="2">


Fix the paths of all the images that you can't see.

Perfect! thanks for the help.. all fixed now, now I have to get the forms installed and build the rest of the pages.. Just noticed something, when I open the page in dreamweaver now it looks like the site used to, how do I get all of the pics on that view too?

Thanks!
Jim

Just a suggestion. I like having my images files in a folder called "images" so I know that my relative path to the document would be:
<img src="images/myimage.gif">

My absolute path would be:
<img src="http://www.mysite.com/images/myimage.gif">

In you case, you can use any of those types of paths and your DW should be able to display them in Design view.

So i'd upload the folder with the pics in it also? oh ya just one more quick question, how do I change the "untitled document" at the top of explorer? man frontpage 2000 was alot eaiser of a program, but Dreamweaver is much much better, good learning curve.

At the top of your screen, just above the page you are working on there is a field, it says "Title:" type the name you want and press enter, voila your page name is ready.
