Changing base href organized site to a relative path site -- needs to be automated
Posted on 2004-09-08
I am trying to test my entire site for broken links. I know that there are validators out there that can go page by page and then there are the paid services that will check your entire sites. However, I use Dreamweaver (which has a validator as part of the program) so I'd rather use that if I could.
Here's the thing, Dreamweaver ignores my base href and tells me that all the links on my site are broken. I can't find any way around this so I am looking to change my site link paths to relative links not based on the base href. Is there a way to make this transition less painful than I think it is going to be? -- There are ~5200 links to update.
I.e., is there a way to automate this process? I was hoping that Dreamweaver would ask "Do you want to update all your links" when I removed the base href, but no.
Are there any other programs out there, maybe even FTP cute, etal)
Cheers in advance,
