Hi guys, I'm really new at dreamweaver. I recently got a job where I maintain the website, which is fine. The only problem is that because where I work, the whole company uses the same template. I need to create a new page, so I thought if I copied it and pasted, renamed it then changed the information to what I need it would work. However, it doesn't.

The files are all .php, and I can't make a new one. I can cut one, move it to wherever and It'll still work, but Duplicate and Copy just end up with "Oops! This page can't be found" when I try viewing it online.

Any ideas why this is happening?

Thanks!

you have uploaded the new files to the server?

Yes, I'm connected to the server by FTP.

i would check that the page is on the server . i always use filezilla but if the file is there and the permissions are correct it will show online. there is nothing wrong with your method of creating a new page by the way i make a blank page once i establish a general layout and use that for a 'template' provinding it is linked to a external css file site wide changes are easier then.
