    i had to redo my site to fit 800x600. I was having iFrame trouble so i decided to start afresh. However look at these steps and tell me why in my template of index.html theres no images showing up, just image "0place holders?"

    1. Delete all older index.html + images
    2. Reslice and resave for web using same folder as previous site
    3. open in Dreamweaver
    4. Make any changes neccessary
    5. Site > Magange Site > remove old site
    6. Save as template
    7. Create new site in site manager
    8. Point to root folder and image folder (same as before)
    9. Preview template in browser
    10. Cry because none of the images show up

    The index.html shows up fine...all images in place, just when i make a template, the images are nowhere to be seen...

    Any suggestions?

    Unfortunately this is one of the few quarks Dreamweaver has. I some cases it works fine when you build a page in one directory and then change it to another directory. My best advice to fix this is to point you your dreamweaver at the new local directory (i.e. C:/websites/newfile ) I which you first created the page and the images worked. Or you can take the hard road an manually replace every image on the page. This method often removes the pesky ../ from the (<img src=”../images/imagename.gif”>) which is telling the code that the image is a directory back. The proper code should look like this (<img src=”images/imagename.gif”>) sorry if this doesn’t help. :beard:

    UNFORTUNATLY...i had to find out the hard way...and the way i resolved it is buy adding the ../ before everyimage...painstaking work i tell u...then some images changed size and i had to change the width to 100% instead of the width in px.

    It was incredibly annoying but it seems ok now...

    Thanks very much for the help tho...if i didn't find out sooner or later i would of imploded ;o

    DWeaver has a very good find/replace. You could have searched for the bad string and replaced it with the good string, for instance, bring up the FIND window and tell it search for the string <img src="images/dude.gif"> and replace it with <img src="/images/dude.gif">

    it's not so painstaking that way.

    I'm only now getting comfortable with DWeaver's find/replace. Not because it's new to me but because it's old... heheh... i have used it when it was not such a good thing. Way back when it would garble the replace. I've had a couple instances with DWeaver and Adobe GoLive where it screwed up the replace and mangled entire folders of HTML. It's only recently I am reaffirming that the find/replace is actually very helpful.

    It's TAG find and replace comes in handy as well, for instance when you wan tto search your site for every IMG tag that does not have an ALT and then give it one.
