tip: when you use DW to make a page, make sure you save the html first, before placing your images… otherwise it will automatically make your path absolute, instead of relative…
take a look at your source code. You have a background image in a table cell that is calling to a file on your computer, instead of something like /images/index/15.gif:
that is probably why it is loading so slow (at least your default page), because it is looking for images which it can’t find.
Sorry if I didn’t explain well
cheers, that is really, really good advice. i’m not much of an html person. i changed it by hand in code view to the relative path /images/index/file.gif coz i wasnt sure what you meant about saving.
eg. when i want to put fireworks or whattever images into an new html doc i should save it first (eg give it a title then hit save) then import the images? i tried deleting the image, saving, reimporting, but did not work. i assume it has to be done as an initial step. anyway, thanks, i’d noticed those long file names and thought ‘no sir, i don’t like it’. thanks again.
also i’ve updated a lot of the code now that i’ve discovered the joy of functions, and generally tidied it up. i think it loads faster and smoother now, but occasionally half of an external swf will load then drop out, or stop loading half way through - could be a slow 56k modem problem?
cheers and thanks again
