Ok I do see it now, but my page is in basic text, I think it left the css behind or something, all the stuff on the page is left aligned and in basic text, no pictures.

I was also reading your post on page 3,

Mod_rewrite doesn't change the links that are outputted by the script, it works on the incoming requests only. You must edit the script to output the new URLs.


how would I edit the script to show the output with the new urls?

ps. thanks for changing the links :)

Do you have relative links? FAQ: Relative paths to images, JavaScript, CSS and other external/linked files are broken. Add a <base> HMTL element.

You have to look at the PHP and find where the links are outputted, for example
Code: Select all
echo '<a href="merch.php?merchant=' . $merchant . '">';

Then you need to change it to output the new links, for example
Code: Select all
echo '<a href="/mylocalsite/merch/merchant/' . $merchant . '/">';

base

I changed the <a to <base and it didn't fix the the page, but I have all my stuff the standard way with the relative path I guess. Is there a quick way in DW cs3 that you know of?

I don't think you did it right. You have to add
Code: Select all
<base href="http://www.example.com/">

into the <head> of your pages where http://www.example.com/ is the path the files are relative to.

Is there a quick way in DW cs3 that you know of?

Does it support regular expression search and replace?

There is nothing between the <head> and </head> that says the website url in it. The only things there are javascripts, meta tags, and css styles.

In DW there is a find and replace I can use. What I tried earlier was to go to each link within the page and add <base instead of <a before the link which didn't work. But like I was saying I couldn't find anything between the head tags that say the homepage url in it or even localhost.

Are you saying to put it on anything in the css that have images?

Right, because you are supposed to ADD it.
