When using Dreamweaver MX2004 and creating a link via the Browse button I am getting an extra / placed into the code.

I suspect a preference is incorrect somewhere.

Any ideas where?

TIA
JOHN

Hi John,

Check your site definition and make sure the local and remote folders are correct and then check to see if you are using document relative or site relative links (located on the Local tab).

One of those two should fix it.  I'm leaning towards the latter.

I did.

Sorry Jason
The site definitions are OK

If I go manage sites > edit the site
Under the Local Info when highlighted
I have Site Name
Local root folder
Refresh local file list auto (ticked)
Default images
HTTP Address
Cache (ticked)

I cant see anything there about  document relative or site relative links

Sorry, I missed the reference to MX.  This issue has been fixed in 8.

When you browse to a document to create a link to it, you should see the following fields:

File Name
Files of Type
URL
Relative To

Change relative to to document if it is showing site or root
