NOt able to view page off of published cty file
Help. Please. I have been working on a site for past few days and something has gone haywire. What is happening is that I can preview and publish all files without any parsing errors. When I launch the site in my browser, however, any link I select off of the index.html page tells me that the page is not found. The browser's URL address window up-top says, for example,
Correction: For accuracy sake, the browser error I am getting does not say "page not found", but something similar:
unsaved: is something other HTML editors (specifically Front Page, if I remember correctly) use as temporary URLs when you create a link to a new, unsaved HTML file. Theoretically when you then save that new file they fix the link.
Just to check - you're publishing the whole site, not just a single article, aren't you?
Darren, you described exactly what has sent me into a delirious panic several times until I realized what was going on.
Joel, yes, I am using FP and may have "saved" the file in FP unintentionally (I have been trying to just cut and paste, not trusting it...). But now I have going through the effected files and repairing the links....
TK: Thanks for your input. No I was doing the publishing the whole site, not just one page. I think Joel hit the nail on the head. I was using FrontPage for some quick table formatting and must have saved files with FP-Funkiness in it. I now have to go and clean all of it up. Time for Dreamweaver, I suppose. Now I know to watch for what you warned of as well.
You should check the FP options, because I think you might be able to tell it to leave your links alone.
