just started using MX2004 ( frontpage prior)
I want to be able to create a folder( with a sub folder for images) then create a page within the main folder( HTML for now).
then i can FTP the contents of that folder to my host( fireFTP)

I am running in to issues wherein dreamweaver wants to to link background images to local images and when i upload the page and image folder, the background disappears adn the path isn't correct?

How do i get dreamweaver to save images as a path to the folder where i want them?
Say i have the page open, i look for an image locally that i want on the page and insert it, i then save then page, but dreamweaver sets the path to the image to the original location for the image, it doesn't seem to save( a copy for its use) in the folder in which i am designing the page from( and save the image in the images folder)

hope that made sense

you have to define your site with 'manage sites'.

ERS don't forget to read the manual. Defining your site should be done before any development in DW takes place.

Thanks for the direction, i figured out how to define the folders unbing the advanced tab while setting up the site.
Thanks i appreciate the patience.
