Unable to create link to local file
I have created a folder called "file" within the "web" directory but I get a message "invalid file type" if I try to upload a file from within Dreamweaver. In any case the file already exists within the site - I do not want to duplicate it in another folder!
Here is the Dreamweaver CS4 file architecture which is identical on the server:
site -mywebsite.com (C:\etc\etc.........)
What I want is a simple relative link of the form <a href="file_I want_to_link_to.php">text_that _makes_the_link</a>
The hyperlink is being made within the text of the "mainContent" element of the page being edited.
When I click on the icon I see the Link--Webpage Dialog window which has an address fckdialog.html but I cannot use the "browse" button to locate the target file on the server. I get a new window with a file upload panel whose address is connector.php.
So how do I fix this?
