    Thank you so much for reading this I am no expert and this is sending me crazy. I have built a site in microsoft expressions web 4 uploaded it to godaddy hosting account and the world has fallen apart. Everyting is on the server all the images are there but they do not display and none of the links between pages work. I have worked out this is because if you hover over the image or a link to another page on the site it is still refering to the local directory where it was created. For example the images when you hover over them refer to c://pcworld/mydocuments/martin/webs/ing35.jpg and obviously this is the local folder on my server and not the location on the server. Whenever I have published using the publish feature in expressions before the upload process has always corrected this to refer to the new file locations on the server. I am looking for an easy fix is there just a setting I change or something to get it to change it on upload because how can I give the correct location when creating the site as the file won't be in that location before I upload it.

    I realise I am an idiot but I am really at the end of my skils and knowledge with it and would appreciate any help and advice you guy's can give me. Thanks again.

    I'm not sure how to do it in ExpressionWeb, but the easiest thing to do and understand would be to open each file up in Notepad and do a file and replace. You replace c:\pcworld\mydocuments\martin\webs\ with nothing at all. Then upload it and you should be fine.

    There is a better way to do this, but for a newcomer, this would be the step I'd take.

    Don't feel bad, this mistake is more common than you think.

    I don't know how many times I've explained that someone code is referencing local files on their PC.

    I loaded expression web on a VM a while back to take a look at it... Reminded me way too much of frontpage ( which was notorious for this behaviour ).

    Look in your "preferences" or "options" section under "images". I believe there is a setting for "use relative paths" for image linking.... Or if its "use absolute paths", make sure to uncheck this option.

    There's a reason for that reminder:
