css link not working - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

I recently changed servers. now when contribute users edit their pages the font and css formats are gone. I can go into manage css in dreamweaver and attach the external style sheet to fix the problem but their are many pages. when i look at the html i see the external css is still attached. The external style sheets are attached in the template script. when you view the page before editing and from the web it looks correct. I have provided a link to an example page. Any help would be appreciated. [url]http://www.ci.sunnyside.wa.us/parksandrec/sports.htm[/url]...

    The the CSS is being called from within a script block, or from a server side include then it won't display while the page is in edit mode.

    No dynamic code or scripts are pd in edit mode.

    We've had the same problem, as many people seem to having done a search of the
    forum.

    The only fix I have been able to find is to use an absolute path to the CSS
    file rather than a relative path e.g. "/css/stylesheet.css" rather than
    "../css/stylesheet.css".

    IMO this is a bug in Contribute given that a relative path is perfectly legal
    (x)HTML.

    It is quite a pain when developing a site on a server that doesn't have the
    same path to the root of the site as the live server.

    OK, I seem to have found the reason for our problem.

    Some of the folders in the path to our site include capital letters. This has
    no effect in a URL but obviously causes problems when Contribute is creating an
    absolute path to the CSS from the relative one in the link tag. Editing the
    URL of the connection to have the correct capitalisation seems to resolve the
    issue.

    Sadly, this doesn't appear to be the problem with your site but I thought it
    may apply in other cases.
