    I have been setting up a simple straight html webpage for a colleague to edit and update herself using Dreamweaver.

    I normally write code using BBEdit, but she needs a WYSIWYG and has Dreamweaver MX on her PC. I have Dreamweaver 8 on my PC.

    I've added photos and graphics to the page and they are all placed on a host server with the code linking to an absolute URL for each. She can view the page in her browser without problems, but when she opens the file in Dreamweaver MX all the images are broken.

    When I open it in Dreamweaver 8 I have no problems. All images show up just fine.

    Is there an issue with MX that ignores full URLs? Do they require relative links? Why can't she see the images that are up on the web.

    She's checked the "Source File..." (right click on the images) and everything seems to be just fine. Dreamweaver seems to know where the file is, but it's not displaying in the WYSIWYG Editor.

    Any thoughts?

    She will need to save the images into the proper directory on her PC.

    EX. If you have the path as www.site.com/images/image.jpg, she will need to save each individual picture in the images folder in the root directory on her PC, so that she has the images in sitefolder/images.

    So relative positions rather than absolute. Okay. That should be doable.
    Thanks for the response.

    The key to that is that she has to save them to her PC (in the same directory that you have them in) in order to see them. If she doesn't, she won't see them.
