I have been working on my company's website using DreamWeaver for some time now. I was only taught general things so I'm not really experienced and just have been learning as I go. I haven't had any problems until a few months back, DreamWeaver was freezing up when I tried to open it so I just left and decided to try it again about two weeks ago. I had made some changes to the website and uploaded the files to the live site. When I went to preview it on internet explorer they did not show my changes. I have downloaded 8.01 & 8.02 updates from adobe and refreshed and cleared the cache as well with no luck.

To make things even more odd, if I view the file on the live site in DreamWeaver it shows the update on the page.

Please help!

Thank you,
Lisa

Are you previewing the site from DW, or actually going to your website and looking at the live pages?

When I preview the site from DW the changes are made. When I actually go to the live website on explorer or firefox the changes are not made.

Then the files probably were not uploaded to the right place. Make a subtle change, upload it and see if the live website changed.

I added an extra asterisk at the end of one of the sentences & uploaded the whole site w/no luck

how are you uploading to your live site? if you use an ftp program can you see your files and folders on the site?

You're not uploading the files to the right place.
