01-02-2009, 06:57 AM #1How do I make my work viewable on windows PC?
I am doing a uni assignment where I have to submit a website I designed (not published) to the uni, uploading it via zip file.
The uni runs windows vista so when I do this my site (created in both iWeb (iLife08) and RapidWeaver 4.2.1) when opened in windows is very different to the one I created. What I mean is when opened in windows I'm missing graphics, the layout of my page is different etc.
Is there a way to stop this. Is there something I can do to ensure that when uploaded via zip file my site will when viewed by the same as the one I created.
Am I better off transferring my work from iWeb & Rapidweaver to Dreamweaver. If so how do I go about this.
Any help would be appreciated.

I suspect you are not using relative paths for files external the the HTML page. For example, if you set an image source with the full path:
<img src="c: \inetpub\wwwroot\images\image.jpg" alt="image" />
...you have to view the site in that same directory on any other machine you want to move the site to. If you use relative paths such as:
<img src="\images\image.jpg" alt="image" />
It will go to the site root and look back from there.
This will affect both images and external style sheets which could explain why both images and layout are missing or changed.
Could you provide some examples of your code? In particular, could you post an <img> tage where you have set the source of the image. Might make things a little clearer when I can see what you've coded.Web Designer
