why arnt my subwebs not showing up correctly

Post by news front » Fri, 11 Feb 2005 06:17:15


I have a problem with FP 2002 on a WIN 98 Dell 1.3GHZ ans 256MB ram:
1) not wanting to show the subweb designations correctly
2) showing the whole ROOT when I try to open a folder I know is a subweb
3)wanting to publish the whole ROOT and all subwebs when I publish what I
know is a single
subweb

FP has been doing this corectly for years until yesterday.

Drive C: was reformated and WIN 98and all software reinstalled about a
month ago. So, I have
assumed that WIN 98 should not be cruded up, nor should the Registry. I have
not knowingly
made any systems changes or added any software in the last several days.

My system is protected by McAffe virus software. And I diskscan and defrag
often.

I have tried these to correct the problem
1) Rebooting: no effect
2) Using the FP repair facility: no effect
3) Uninstalling and reinstalling FP: no effect

MS File Explorer shows the correct ROOT/folder/subweb designations.
Therefore I have asumed
it is NOT a WIN 98 problem. See the first image on
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

The FP web open panel shows the subweb desingation, but the left panel does
NOT! Therefore, I
assumed that FP itself was confused since it was presenting TWO different
versions of the truth
on the same screen. See the second image on
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

An interesting fact is that when go to an old Dell on the network and use FP
to try to access the
same subwebs I get a server error mesage. See the third image on
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

What can I do to fix this short of reformating drive C: and reistalling WIN
98 and everything else?

Open your root in FP and run a Tools Recalculate Hyperlinks
Then double click one of your subwebs to see if it opens as a FP web (subweb)
- if not right click each subweb folder and select convert to web to see if you get an error or it converts it

PS
What you see (the web folder icon) in Win Explorer (and the dialog) is just because there is a web folder icon linked to the
folder - doesn't mean FP sees it as a subweb

This doesnt work. When I right click and select convert to web, it goes and
does something and comes back without turning the folder to a web.

I am stumped.

Any other ideas?

just because there is a web folder icon linked to the

reate new folder, drag the content from the "bad" folder into the new folder, then right click on
the new folder and convert to web.
