Fireworks HTML pointing to loacl drive

Fireworks HTML pointing to loacl drive

Fireworks HTML pointing to loacl drive

I've created a menu in fireworks and exported it to Dreamweaver without any reported problems. It tests OK locally. However when I FTP it to my site the images don't show and when I do a property check they are pointing to my local drive.
Any help appreciated.

RE: Fireworks HTML pointing to loacl drive

Have you uploaded the images?
If so, check the links are for the web URL, not for a local file.
If the image links are pointing at say "file//../../directory/image.jpg" then you need to change it to the web url for each image.
your image link within the html page should be
<img scr="http://wwww.yourdomainnamehere.com/images/image.jpg">
(changing "yourdomainnamehere.com" to your actual domain name) if you don't have your images in an image folder, leave out that part of the URL (although I recommend that you do keep all images in a seperate labeled file for ease of use)

Hope that helps.

Sometimes, when my code just won't behave, I take it outside and make it listen to britney spears music, and when it comes back it's really well behaved. I wonder if it's suffering from post tramatic stress syndrome now..

Thanks DaRNCat
The only way I could get it to work was to delete the directory and re-export to a new one. Weird but it works.
Thanks for the reply.
