  • The problem that takes wind out of me ?

    Here is my problem I will try my best to explain it as I feel that this is very unusual problem.

    I have created some 10-15 templates with Photoshop and Dreamweaver MX for my new portfolio site. But the problem is while creating it in Photoshop I have sliced it & specify Index.html as a file name every time with different folders like template 1, template 2 and so on.

    Now how should I incorporate these different INDEX file from different folders into my site? As I already have Index.html file with my main portfolio site layout.

    So is there any way that I can add these templates to my site? If I try to copy it in my sites root directory it

    Are you making the changes inside of Dreamweaver?
    If you make the changes inside of Dreamweaver, it will update all of the files for you.
    You can rename files, move them to a different folder, etc. Dreamweaver tracks everything and will update all files when you do this..

    Hope this helps..

    Thnx chip for your reply. But i have some 5800 files in all for those created templates. So its not predictable to rename each and every file. Also i tried renaming the html page but the slice name i.e. index-01.gif , index-02.gif remains the same.

    So how i should incorporate those into my root directory which already has my site index file.

    Ok just for a second i though of renaming my main sites index.html file to default.html OR home.html ok but i have some 8-10 templates folders which contains index.html file. i am not a programmer so i really dont know PHP or CSS association with it.

    Hope this may gives you a clear idea of my problem.

    I’m trying to get this straight. You have 5,800 files and each of them require their own specific set of images? And, these html files need to reside in the root directory?

    What is this site??

    Hi MiLiNd,

    I thnik I finally understand what you are trying to do. You have built many, many templates that you are going to sell, and some of them will be for free. You have already made most of the templates.

    If I understand right, that’s all you would need to do is make sure that each one is in its own sub directory. Then it won’t matter if the graphics on each of the templates have the same names, or even if all of the tempolates are named the same. I would keep each template seperate, in its own subdirectory. It’s actually best to keep your site organized this way anyway. try to keep as little as possible in the _root directory. THis helps to Keep some kind of architectural structure to the site as well…

    Personally, I would also think about listing all of these template subdirectories (or better yet put all of these directories in another subdirectory) in your robots.txt file. This will keep search engines from getting lost on your site looking at files with basically no content of any good to you..

    If this isn’t it try me again..
