DreamWeaver 4 screws up the HTML code for images, links - HELP!!!
Posted on 2001-07-24
Am creating web pages with DW4. The desired structure on the TARGET site is a root directory where the INDEX.HTM file is found, then two subdirectories under that, one called BUTTONS and another called IMAGES. Real simple and straightforward.
But developing these pages on my own machine BEFORE I put it on the server, the "root" directory is c:\test\webpage\index and of course the other two subdirectories are c:\test\webpage\buttons and c:\test\webpage\images.
When I add an image or a link in DW4 to the page, DW4 saves the code, instead of simply "image\picture.gif" as "c:\test\webpage\image\picture.gif". ARGH! And even when I go into the html source file (gasp, with dos edit, since MS word screws it up even worse), then go back into DW4, DW4 changes it all back to the garbage again.
I can't believe I'm the first to have this problem, but the help files are useless and it is not obvious. Greatly appreciated if you could point me in the right direction, step by step, on how to accomplish what is presumably a very simple thing.
