View Full Version : Links not working

06-02-2008, 07:44 PM
I created a webpage in Dreamweaver 8. I used the same process to create all the links, yet only some work. There does not appear to be any difference in the code. I made these links through the designer: right clicking what I wanted linked, then clicking "Make Link", then browsing for the file and selecting it.
Here's one of the pages. There are 2 links in it that don't work (in red). Some of the non-working links the internet explorer screen flashes once very quickly, but stays on the same page, other bad links don't even give me a flash. I don't even get a "page not found" screen.
Any clues what the problem could be??

I created a webpage in Dreamweaver 8. Hi Meta,
According to all the code on that page, it was created in Frontpage 5 and copied from www.victorybaptistmd.org of the internet by HTTrack Website Copier (which does a decent job imho)

If you get a 'page not found' it means that the page is not there. Check the path in the link, or check your directory for the file being missing. It's one of the two. The 2 links you highlighted are looking for files in the same directory as the HTML page. The links use valid correct code.
