Naming conventions within RSD - Post...
When linking to a page name, do we need to add the .html extension to the file name? Or are these extensions not used within RSD, and are only added automatically when the software exports out of the Preview folder and into standard HTML code?
This also applies to the software's naming conventions when creating pages. Do we just use a basic text name, or do we need to add the .HTML extension?
And what about the Text Link element in the toolbar? This element presents a # in the URL entry window, implying that this element refers only to links within the existing page (bookmarks), and is not used to link externally from the current page?
1. When adding pages using the pages menu button or Manage Project, the program automatically adds the .html. If one adds it oneself, the file name gets exported as name.html.html.
2. When linking to a page name, the .html (Note) does need to be added by the user.
3. The # entry in the URL entry window needs to be replaced with whatever URL one wishes to link with unless, of course, the link is to an ID within the page.
Note: or whatever suffix the particular page or file has - it could be on another website altogether.
CC has done a pretty decent job of explaining the "big picture" in their online tutorials, but it would be helpful if they also included a chart which broke down the functions of each tool in the tool menu, for quick reference by noobs.
I think they should also use the same file-naming convention across the board to avoid confusion, especially since this program hides the true HTML code until dumping it through the export function.
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
