save embeded files

Guest

The save embeded files pop up box does not pop up when I save my pages. So I
have to manually drag my photos to my images folder. Does anyone know why
this does not appear upon saving the page? I cannot locate anything in the
help files locally or on-line.

You need to import (drag-n-drop) all external (images, etc.) content into your current open FP web /
site prior to using them in the web / site.

I am not sure if I made my self clear. On my computer at work and on my
friends computer, both running XP and using FP 2002 when an image is
"inserted" from "file from" and I grab a picture off of my hard drive and
place it on a page and then I save that page a dialogue box pops up and asks
what I want to do with that image (save embedded image). I can save it to a
folder (images within the web), over write it if it already exists or leave
the path to my C drive. Usually I save it to the images folder that exists
within my wwwroot folder and FP makes a copy of that picture so the original
is still in "my pictures" and now it has a copy of it in the web folder and
it changes the path name in the HTML code of the page. But on my computer at
home that box does not pop up and give me a choice to automatically make a
copy of it in the web folder. So in turn I have to drag it into the images
folder before I insert it into the page so the path name is correct from the
beginning. I didn't know if there was something "disabled" in the settings
of my FP.

Don't insert if from the file from on your hard drive.
Drag and drop into the images folder in your web or File | Import before
inserting on the page and saving.
