    I am currently in a Web Portfolio Publishing class and I am having a few problems. I am not the best when it comes to computers anyway. I made my web pages and I linked them together but I can only go through all the pages on my computer. As soon as I put it into a compressed zip folder to send to my instructor it does not work. It will open the page but I can not click from link to link. He said I have to extract my files. I have no idea what that means and that is all he said. Can someone please help me figure out how to do that? THANK YOU!!!

    Are you on a Windows or Mac?

    On Windows, double-click on the file, then from the column on the left, select "Extract all files".

    On a Mac, just double-click on the file, and it should extract automatically into a separate folder with the same name as the zip file.

    It's also possible that your links have absolute paths in them (i.e., they point to exactly where the files were when you originally created them). If that's the case, the links won't work when you extract them, since the files won't be in the exact same place.

    If all your linked web pages are in the same folder, the relative path from page to page is always just the filename.
    Ex.
    <a href="c:\\foldername\foldername\filename.html">
    If you see anything like that in a problem web page, edit the HTML to create a correct link. The giveaway that this link won't work is that it contains slashes going the wrong direction, and a reference to c:, or the c drive on a computer.

    Absolute Path:
    <a href="c:\\foldername\filename.html">
    Relative Path:
    <a href="filename.html">
