When publishing my site, the home page publishes fine, but my other pages are publishing to the wrong folder. The second, third and fourth pages are adding an index.html/ to the web address of those pages, which sends it to the wrong folder.
My question is: Where can I look up the actual web page address for each page, and how do I change that page address so it will publish to the correct folder?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
The web address to all the pages is the same: http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html, http://www.yourdomain.com/page2.html etc. At least, that is how it should be. And be aware that if you go in and correct something outside VSD, those changes will be overwritten by your next update.
For example; all your pages might be called "My Website" (your site name), but each page also needs its own unique name (index, about, services, contact, etc...).
So, you start with your index page and as you add other pages, give them a name to identify them. Keep it simple – lower case, no spaces, no symbols. Then when you save your site, all the pages will be included.
When I created the new pages, I did not create a link that I know of. I added a new page. marked it to duplicate the home page, and made the changes I needed to create the different page.
My home page publishes: www.mydomain.com/index.html
the other pages publish as www.mydomain.com/index.html/about
and so on
the Godaddy support said that the pages other than the home page should be labeled
They said that the index.html should not be listed on the secondary pages. They said that the home page is posting to the root folder, but the other pages are creating a new folder and not posting to the root. I just thought there may be a place within vsd that you could actually look at the web address of a page, and rename it if necessary. Any help would be great
when i go to the home page, the url is www.mydomain.com/index.html/
when I go to the other pages the url is www.mydomain.com/index.html/about.html
and so on
the godaddy crew said that I need to change the url on the second and third pages to eliminate the index.html so it will just be www.mydomain.com
I don't know where in coffee cup you can even look at the url's for the different pages or if it is an option to change them.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.
Here's my S-Drive site with
examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.
Here's my CoffeeCup SCCP Shop with examples of what can be done.
This is a site I built for my work.(RSD)
This is a site I built for use in my job.(HTML Editor)
This is my personnel site used for testing and as an easy way to share photos.(RLM imported to RSD)
Drop the /index.html from the publishing destination.
Good catch. Yes, that could be it.
I can't find where the site is listed with the index.html other than when I bring up the site with the url.
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
