    Home Link Downloads ZIP folder

    Hi Guys, I hope all is well and you are having a splendid week.

    I have a problem with a website I am trouble shooting at the moment.


    When you click the 'HOME' it downloads a folder with the PHP & HTML files.

    What I need to do is make some changes to the website that as the previous designer has disappeared. I have been given the FTP details and downloaded a program named 'Mountain Duck' to get access to the files. I have some basic web design skills and have always used Adobe Dreamweaver or Muse to create websites. What I thought I could do is download the files via FTP and then open them in Dreamweaver and link certain parts and make the changes in that particular program. I assumed that the previous designer would have used the same program to create the pages. When I open index.html it shows the basics of the page but then I am a little bit lost on how to get all of the different parts linked up. The previous designer has used some techniques that are new to me (splash screen & menu) that I am assuming is js.

    I have downloaded all of the folder content to my machine and there is a index.html file within that folder. The only part that would not download properly is a folder named 'logs' that would not download properly. I was unsure how else to make the changes and further changes in the future other than download the web files to my local machine, make the changes, and then re-upload via FTP. It certainly is strange as the company who own the website said this only started happening recently and it had been working fine for a while.

    I have a feeling that the MALA folder is maybe to stop the splash screen loading every time you go back to the Home page?

    Any advice is massively appreciated.

    Kind Regards
