I have updated the site ok - but there seems to be some file management issue that is preventing the index page from loading.
I have used frames - originally done in an older version of DW - so my index page is made up of Top frame, Title frame, Left frame and Home frame.
I have uploaded all of these - but the page as a whole is not opening and the old index page is showing when i go into the URL. When I open the index page into dreamweaver all the frames open fine, and it checks out in browser fine too.
Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

jpeddie,
Look the source of the page on the server. Look for filenames and make sure these are correct. It could be that you're loading old files, if you changed the filenames.

It could also be a cache issue. You can check this by ctrl+f5, or loading each frame individually in the browser address bar.

The root of your problem lies in the use of frames, which are not to be used for constructing web pages. In some instances, when you need external pages (pages from other websites) they are warranted.
