    Hey everyone,

    I'm working on mirgrating a website from an old CMS to a new file structure and I'm trying to access header/footer include files from web root. I can do that without any problems, however, the images have relative links to their position in a folder at the root. So, the question I have is--do a large number (~10ish) of absolute links slow down the loading of a webpage?

    I wasnt sure if web browers would cache the connection to the site for relative links and always open a new connection (even if it's to the same site) for all absolute links.

    Will it slow it down terribly, I would say probably not. However, I would only use it as a temporary fix until all your re-structuring has been implemented.

    I have an eye for detail like you'd never believe.

    It technically is slower as it requires an extra access for each fetch, but
    won't hurt to do it temporarily (like DCScene indicated).

    If you happen to migrate your directories from your old site to your new
    site with the same directory structure (same directory names, etc) ... the
    migration will be easy, as your references will stay the same as your old site.

    You could sort of "mirror" your old site, so to speak.
