Issues with file names / save location

Issues with file names / save location

I've tried doing this multiple times, rebooting in between, to no avail. When I create my pages using the Data Assist Wizard, the following happens:

Files are created/saved to the DOCUMENTS folder on my C drive. (instead of in the root folder for the site I'm working on)

All links are created like this:

<link href="ile:///C|/Users/virginia/Documents/Web Stuff/cornell/WA_DataAssist/styles/Refined_Pacifica.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

The above is a copy/paste from one of the pages.

I'm not sure what's going on, and I've done a few searches and haven't seen this issue anywhere else.

Oddly enough, when I spoke with my mentor about this, and he worked alongside me on his system, the same thing happened. He said he'd used this recently and didn't have any problems at all, until we tried it simultaneously.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Are you running it with a saved page open? There must be something that causes this because it isn't normal behavior to do that. What are the exact steps you are using and I can try to reproduce it.

I have to have SOME page open or it won't let me use the wizard.

I create a new php page (I don't save it)

Insert > WebAssist > DataAssist > DataAssist Wizard

I go through the steps and click FINISH.

That's it.

I just want to mention again (in case it was missed) that the creation of the links are like this:

<link href="ile:///C|/Users/virginia/Documents/Web Stuff/cornell/WA_DataAssist/styles/Refined_Pacifica.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />


(note the missing "f" in "ile:///")

Save the page first and it will all work correctly.

Your question in the first post, though, was:

"Are you running it with a saved page open?"

But the fix is to save the page first and leave it open? If it's that easy, great! Thank you for the help on this. It was making me crazy. :)
