Organizing Folders?

Recommended Posts

I tried organizing my site into folders. I put all of my graphics in a folder, but then the graphics didn't show up on the pages, so I moved them all back out. How do I organize things into folders without messing up my pages???

Did you link to the images properly?

 

Example

><img src="/images/netscape.gif" width="33" height="32">

If you create a folder and move images (files) into it, you need to change your html code to reflect the "path" to those files. In Thomas's example, the "/images/" would be the new folder name that would need to be added to each line of code for a file that you moved.

Oh gosh! What a pain! I don't know which would be worse...continuing to sort through a gazillion files or spending time fixing html code (which I am a newborn beginner).

My first suggestion would be to get rid of FrontPage. Although it will do the job, it puts a lot of crap into the coding.

 

Back to your question. It has been several years since I transitioned from FrontPage to Dreamweaver, so I can't say for sure. I think that when moving files from within FrontPage, all links are automatically updated. Dreamweaver does it, but I could be wrong about FrontPage. What you don't want to do is use open an Explorer Window to access the web folders to organize your site. Doing it this way, the links will not be updated.
