View Full Version : Please help with this (issue with files...)

I have a huge problem here... When I was making my webpages, I have everything (everything means the html files, flash files, images, sounds) on the desktop. I stupidly saved everything on the desktop! I'm scare right now because tomorrow we have a presentation, I need to open my webpage on the other computer. I'm scare it will cause some 'linking' error (can't show some of the images or flash etc)

Please advice what I should do :confused:

My friend suggests I put all the files (on desktop) into one new folder.

If you created the website on your desktop it's likely that you didn't correctly define your website which will cause problems if you move the files since they are likely hard-linked to their current location. However, if all the links are relative to the document, you might be OK.

In any case you'll need to move the files to their own folder (keeping all the relationships in place). Then test it out. If it doesn't work you need to define your site in DW and then fix all the links.
