clean up site! how to get rid of stray files?
Posted on 2004-09-10
Hi, I need to get my site online today, but before i do i would like to clean up all of the stray files that have accumulated.
i've imported my layout and many additional images from fireworks, and over the course of making the site i've shifted things around and deleted things from my pages. I'd like to get rid of the extra image files which are not linked to the site because i'm certain they will take up a considerable amount of space.
I began going through the images and deleting the ones that did NOT say "this ...is linked to ...such and such pages..." however, this is tiresome, tedious and timeconsuming. Plus, it leaves a large error margin of human mistake where i might accidentally hit the delete button on one of the files that is linked...
i believe i came across information on a feature of dreamweaver's that could do this automatically in one hit of the button, once upon a time in my websurfing, but i tried searching again and couldn't find anything about it. i've also done a quick scan of the dreamweaver menus, and could also not find anything (there's something for "clean up html" but i'm not sure what that does...)
does anyone have advice? i'd like to start uploading the site within the next few hours, hence the points!
