General Site-Wide Update?

Posted on 2004-11-14

I'm trying to update and tidy my web site's files, templates, cf tags etc and have created a decent subfolder structure in which to place my cftags, templates etc.  I'm hoping there is a way to globally edit my web pages without having to load each in turn in dreamweaver to ammend the file path?  any ideas?

i.e. /page_fun.cfm replaced to /template/page_fun.cfm

i know ... i should have better thought out my site BEFORE creating 50 pages but ... you know how it goes!

    When you drag & drop file in the 'Files' window ('Site' tab), you will get a dialog box saying that other files link to that file and asking if you want sitewide links to that file to be updated.  Say yes, and then upload your updated pages.  (If any files are open, they will be updated too, but you will have to manually save them).

    Otherwise, you can use the Dreamweaver 'Find and Replace' to update all your links.  Select 'Edit' -> 'Find and Replace' or Ctrl+F to open the Find and Replace window.  Change the 'Find in' drop down menu to 'Entire Current Local Site' and then Search for: /page_fun.cfm and Replace with: /template/page_fun.cfm.
