MS PUBLISHER HELP!!! transfer linked files to CD

by kpangrace / July 14, 2005 2:37 AM PDT

Hi i'm doing a project for a class in college and i'm having troubles managing a website i created. On the recently created site i have linked to many files and images on my computer, and the site works completely on my PC. However, when i burn the folder with all the files, as well as the published website and publisher project to a cd, none of the linked files work on my notebook. I knew this problem would arise, but i was wondering if there were any way to change the file names so the finished site will work on any computer, not my own.

I am not an expert on the subject and i appreciate any help i can have

You have to copy the whole site

to the harddrive of the laptop in order for the site to work correctly. As you copy the files over from the CD to the harddrive, Windows will 'fix' the paths.

Yea that would work, but.....

since it's for a school project, i need it to be able to run off the cd.... i could just change all the links in the project to the cd path, but i would prefer an easier way if it was available....

simply use RELATIVE links...

I am sure there was some discussion pertaining to the options between using absolute paths in links as opposed to making use of relative paths in links.
