    href problem!!

    I have a problem i'm hoping someone can help me with, I am using DreamWeaver 8.

    I have a template saved from which I was creating pages from, which used to work fine But now everytime I create a new page from the template the css is not applying when previewed.

    The code from the template is shown below - which previews fine with the CSS style sheet applied.

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="../2col_leftNav.css" type="text/css" />
    <!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="head" --><!-- TemplateEndEditable -->
    <style type="text/css">

    Now when i create a page from this template the code shows this

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/2col_leftNav.css" type="text/css" />

    for some reason the href now has a "/" in which is stopping the css being applied. (the pages created from the template which worked fine before i had this problem do not have the "/" after href!


    <link rel="stylesheet" href="2col_leftNav.css" type="text/css" /> <---- the css style sheet works fine with this code

    Can anyone tell me how i can stop href from adding this "/" everytime i create a new page from the template? remember that the code on the page created from the template is locked!

    Sorry if i sound a bit simple, im very new to coding.

    You didn't move the template out of its subdirectory, did you?

    If this post contains any code, I may or may not have tested it. It's probably just example code, so no getting knickers in a bunch over a typo, OK? If it doesn't have basic error checking in it, such as object detection or checking if objects are null before using them, put that in there. I'm giving examples, not typing up your whole app for you. You run code at your own risk.

    This may explain a thing or two.

    The "/" is used sometimes to move a level in addressing.
