1. Publishing Problem with FP2000
I've run into an interesting problem while publishing various versions of a
website I'm building and have exhausted all the resources I know of to find
a solution. I'm running FP2000 and Win98SE, both fresh installs on a new
box with no prior versions.
Scenario and Problem: I'm building a site that uses custom hoverbuttons for
navigation. Within FP and previewing in IE5 and NS4.x, the buttons display
and work properly. But once published to the Earthlink servers (which have
the FP2K Server Extensions installed), the hoverbuttons become erratic.
Instead of displaying properly, there are only functionless grey boxes in
their place. An interesting note is that when flipping through the pages,
the static button graphic representing the respective page displays only, as
well as the "Home" hoverbutton. But the other hoverbuttons do not display.
After examining the HTML, it turns out that for some reason, FP is pointing
the browser back to my computer as the source of the buttons...although it's
already on the Earthlink servers. What's also strange is that somehow the
code for the source of everything else is correct and updates correctly once
published to the servers. Below is a snippet of code displaying the button
</applet><applet code="fphover.class" codebase="./" width="91" height="15">
<param name="color" value="#000080">
<param name="hovercolor" value="#0000FF">
<param name="textcolor" value="#FFFFFF">
<param name="effect" value="glow">
<param name="image" valuetype="ref"
<param name="hoverimage" valuetype="ref"
<param name="url" valuetype="ref" value="service1.htm">
As you can see by the last few lines, the code is pointing back to my
machine as the source for the buttons, instead of simply pointing to the
directory within the web as the source.
As another note, if I create standard FP hoverbuttons (you know, the lame
ones), there is no problem with them.
As far as I know, my PWS is set up correctly, being
http://dell1/xxxxxxx(dell1 being my computer's name, and a stand alone
machine) and it is a server based web.
Any solution to this would be much appreciated.
