I am moving all my Learning Folders to another location.After I move the Questions to the new folder, the page cannot find the Question pages. They are still linked to the folder they were moved from. The only way I know how to correctly link the pages is to enter the Learning extension and redo all the pages.I would rather go in to the script and change the link rather than change it by redoing all the pages. Does anyone know where these links are set in Dreamweaver? I am presently using Dreamweaver UltraDev 4.0

A couple of things...

Make sure you DEFINE THE SITE before you do ANYTHING else. Always. This is CRUCIAL. If you don't have a site defined, DW will assume everything has a hard/absolute link -- and to YOUR hard drive. NOTHING works when you upload if that's how it's set up.

You also have to mirror EXACTLY the folder setup on the computer you worked on. EXACTLY -- all the names, all the structure, everything has to be EXACTLY the same. Change ANYTHING, and the links are broken.

The links are in all the HTML files. CourseBuilder depends a LOT on javascript -- and if you don't upload those files, nothing works.

Also, if your pages/images aren't being found, either you have the links set to YOUR hard drive, or the files/folders are named differently.

If you aren't using code and design view, you should. Look for anything that has C:\ or ANY drive letter, or starts file:/// -- NONE of those will work when you upload the site.

This is a very common newbie problem. Using the WYSI(N)WYG tools only makes it worse, because you don't see how the links are being created.
