    Hi there!

    Dreamweaver could be using what we call the absolute path to your page for one of two reasons. Normally I've found it uses a relative path which would work ok regardless of whether the site is local or on a server somewhere. Something like ../images/image.gif.

    Anyway...

    Your document isn't saved? Dreamweaver will use the absolute path to images and other pages if you've not yet saved the file you're working on. However it does tend to warn you about it by beeping at you and throwing up a box.

    The other thing I can think of is that you're linking to a page outside your site's root folder or that you've not got a site defined. If you're working on just one page, it's going to use the absolute path because it's got no way of knowing that the page you're linking to is part of the same website, so it links to it as you'd link to another website, by using the full address. Make sense? I hope so

    If it's an actual site you're building, create a folder for it and define a site as opposed to working on a collection of pages on your hard drive. That way dreamweaver will update all your links automatically and will work fine on a server.
