FP 2002 – Upload Difficulties

FrontPage 2002

I’m trying to upload my webpage, however, when I publish my web, although all appears to go well, it seems that some of my pages are actually showing in the address bar, as coming from my "C" drive: C:/My Documents/My Webs, while others were actually uploaded.  I’ve asked a friend to check from his PC, and as suspected he can only view two of the five pages.

All suggestions welcome!

Cheers,

Dave

Did you have all of the pages properly SAVED before you attempted to upload them?

Check the links in the code to see if they are referencing the pages on your hard drive or the URL of your site.

I just checked in HTML view, and this is one of the references:

 <param name="url" valuetype="ref" value="Practices.htm">

All my links are done using the "Hover Button" option, and I did not have to enter a complete URL, I just had to select the page reference within my Web.

Should I place the complete URL for each hyperlink, like:

http://www3.ns.sympatico.ca/dbrydon/Contact.htm

or am I heading in the wrong direction?

As an example I just went to my site and selected one of the buttons, and this is the address shown in the address bar:

C:\My Documents\My Webs\Services.htm

There is your problem....if you notice when you look at your code it looks like this(taken directly from your site):
  <param name="url" valuetype="ref" value="file:///C:/My%20Documents/My%20Webs/Services.htm">

You'll need to change it to look like this:
  <param name="url" valuetype="ref" value="Services.htm">

Do this for the other links as well and you should be fine.

Hope this helps,

Sorry for this follow-up, however, I just removed and replaced all URL's as suggested and re-uploaded.  When I checked the code I found the same problem:

param name="url" valuetype="ref" value="file:///C:/My%20Documents/My%20Webs/

Any suggestions why?

I can re-post if you like :-)

You're using hover buttons. Delete them, and put them back on again. Just changing the links doesn't change the parameters for the java applets that make the buttons.

And pay attention to HTML view -- you can head off a LOT of problems by seeing what's actually going on with the code BEFORE you upload the pages.

It all look good, until I publish the site; example:

prior to publishing:

 <param name="url" valuetype="ref" value="Services.htm">

after publishing (from source on uploaded site):

<param name="url" valuetype="ref" value="file:///C:/My%20Documents/My%20Webs/Contact.htm">

I deleted all hover buttons then replaced.  The hover buttons are custom design, would that make a difference?
