    Links in DW aren't working

    I have a page title "Fav. Links" and I just want to make text links go to a web page.

    I high lighted the text "BORED.com" and the property inspector next to "LINK:" I typed "www.bored.com"

    After I put my page online and went to the site, the link took me too: www.geocities.com/adampolselli/www.bored.com

    How do I get it so that it doesn't do that?

    Code:

    I do not have Dream Weaver, but try adding http:// before the www and see if that works.
    Good luck!

    Hmm...

    not reading any other posts.. i think you should add http in front of the link...

    Why?

    Because if you don't, the browser will look into the directory the page is placed in...

    if you put / in front of the link, the browser will look in your main directory..

    Hope you understand..

    That's all folks...
