Absolute URLs and Relative URLs question

Absolute URLs and Relative URLs question

Post by docelli » Wed, 04 Jul 2007 09:40:59



I am using Frontpage 2003 for building my ebay templates and also fo
storing my photos to the web, which works fine but for one thing.
Frontpage when adding in a photo to my templates it automaticall
changes the Absolute URL to a relative URL and so when I cut and past
the source code to Ebay turbo lister it automatically won't recogniz
the url link to the photo because its in relative code. So my questio
is, within Frontpage 2003 can I turn on or make all the source code t
be Absolute without having to manually change it everytime with th
code itself? Or is this the only way to do it?

Thanks

Ric

Absolute URLs and Relative URLs question

FrontPage will only manage relative links. To use Absolute links, first
publish your images to the web site.

Then, in your local web, use the absolute address from the website for
the images. When you save the page in the "Save images" dialogue, opt
to use the images from their present location - do NOT save them into
the web. The absolute link to the image will be retained.
Note that you will be asked to save the images *every* time you save the
page.

To speed up the web building process, you could use local copies of the
images (Import them into your web site first), then when the page is
complete save the page - do not close it. Then use Find and Replace to
replace
<img src="images
with
<img src=" http://www.yqcomputer.com/
(in source code for that page only) which will change the relative links
to absolute (assumes the page is in root folder and images are in
images folder). Again when you save the page do NOT save the images.
