What is the best way to move WA generated files to directory and not break paths and ensure the wizard will create new files in a directory

I just ran WA SA and had a file open in a directory but the SA generated pages were all saved to my root.
I would like to know
1) The best way to move WA generated files to directory and not break paths
2) Ensure the wizard will create new files in a directory and future tasks for SA and DA

The wizard automatically uses the directory from the page opened when you run the wizard.

On the second page of the wizard where you add and remove pages, you can override the directory and choose a different folder for each page.

Once created, you can manually move the pages to a different directory and Dreamweaver should ask you if you want to update paths. That should work to update the paths necessary.

Thank you, The wizard did not create the files in the directory that I had a page opened it. That is the issue.
Under Site > Advanced Settings, I have links relative to document. Could that be the problem?

The links are updating correctly when I save them in the directory, I had issues with that in the past but possibly was errors on my design side.

I think we actually updated it to use the root directory by default and not the directory from the opened page. You can still override and set the folder in the wizard on the second tab.

Thank you, I did change my links relative to site root when I just ran the DA wizard and then I ended up with virtual include tags vs require once which of course did not work. I just did a find a replace to resolve that.

Under Site > Advanced Settings, Do you recommend links relative to document or site root?

document... otherwise dreamweaver will use include() instead of require_once()
