FrontPage2000 relative address of pictures
Posted on 2004-04-13
I have now a phenomena what I didn't have earlier. I made an HTML-based e-book. Normally I'm doing this job on my home machine (P4 1600, 512MB RAM, Win2000Prof SR2) but I was away and I installed on a Win98 (P3 400, 256 MB) the same FP2000. On this W98 machine the pictures are not transportables! That means the pictures were not shown, only the replacing square. The adress of pictures were absolute that is the adresses contain the whole path of my P4 machine therefore on the P3 machine aren't visible because the pathes differ.
There are some icons appearing on every page. The path is ../../IMAGES/IMAGES01/01.JPG - this is the standard (P4 machine version). If I don't copy, this appears normal with picture on the P3 machine. But after copying onto an other page in other subdirectory (using P3 machine) and repairing the path, after saving and loading onto P4 machine this pictures can't appear because of the absolut path: file:///C:/Dir1/Dir2/IMAGES/IMAGES01/01.JPG (this is the path for the P3 machine) in the pictures properties window which differs from the path of the P4 machine (file:///C:/Dir3/Dir4/Dir5/IMAGES/IMAGES01/01.JPG).
On the P3 machine I tried to replace the absolute address with the relative adress shown above. The picture appears normal but the relative address above after clicking OK changes to an absolute address!! The hyperlink property of the same picture remains: the relative address remains relative after copying.
What have I to set? or what made I wrong?
with best regards
