Subdomains: Folders and Linking Questions - Macromedia Dreamweaver

I asked some questions about subdomains earlier. It now appears to me that they're probably created as separate websites on one's computer, then published separately to a designated subdomain - like birds.animals.org. So, if I create six subdomains, it would be like adding six new websites to my "localhost" directory. But I have about a dozen websites - some with similar themes - and plan on creating many subdomains, some with identical names. The default foder for Dreamweaver is a folder named Sites on the C drive. If I have an adult political site and a children's political site, each ...

    Default Subdomains: Folders and Linking Questions

    I asked some questions about subdomains earlier. It now appears to me that they're probably created as separate websites on one's computer, then published separately to a designated subdomain - like birds.animals.org.

    So, if I create six subdomains, it would be like adding six new websites to my "localhost" directory. But I have about a dozen websites - some with similar themes - and plan on creating many subdomains, some with identical names.

    The default foder for Dreamweaver is a folder named Sites on the C drive. If I have an adult political site and a children's political site, each with a subdomain named "Government," then I obviously can't have two instances of C:Sites/government. Or could I name one c:Sites/government2 or c:Sites/government kids, and just publish it to the government subdomain on my children's site?

    Assuming that's a workable solution, I still might want to subdivide my projects for convenience.

    Thus, I might keep my Sites folder but add Animals and Politics folders for websites in those categories, leaving me with this:

    C:Sites
    C:Animals
    C:Politics

    Now suppose I have the following folders (websites) inside the C:Animals:

    /GEOZOO
    /BIRDS
    /MAMMALS
    /REPTILES
    /FISHES

    I would publish GEOZOO to www.geozoo.org and ther others to geozoo.org subdomains, like this:

    www.geozoo.org/
    birds.animals.org/
    mammals.animals.org/
    reptiles.animals.org/
    fishes.animals.org/
    www.animals.org/appendix

    What I don't understand is how I would link between folders (website) so that they remain linked after I publish them. On my computer, GEOZOO and BIRDS have the same relative position, both beginning with C:ANIMALS (or C:SITES). But their relationship will be different online.

    So what's the proper way to organized my local webs/folders and link between them when I'm planning for subdomains?

    Default Re: Subdomains: Folders and Linking Questions

    Subdomains are different websites...

    To link from a page in one subdomain to a page in another subdomain- you
    have to use a full http:// path.

    You can't make a relative path between fred.domain.com and ethel.domain.com

    So- short and sweet-
    Each subdomain has to have it's own Dreamweaver "site definition"
    (Reason- they will each have unique local folders, and unique ftp publishing
    info)

    Each subdomain has to have it's own "Local Site Folder"

    Don't nest the local site folders inside of other local site folders... You
    will be creating relationships between files that won't exist on the remote
    site.

    so,
    C:
    sitefolderone -->fred.domain.com
    sitefoldertwo -->ethel.domain.com
    sitefolderthree -->www.domain.com

    to make a link in a sitefolderone page go to a sitefoldertwo page, it has to
    be a full absolute http:// path- Don't Try to make a relative link. They
    aren't relative... the subdomains may be in adjacent folders on your
    machine, and maybe even on the server- but they could just as well be a
    couple of continents away from each other. They are different domains....

    Bear,

    I'm new at this but I did used to work on a Unix system in the dark ages
    ('78-85).

    I gave up on the FTP provided with DW (4) pretty quickly and either use my
    host's file manager or WS FTP to upload my stuff. Yeah, it would be nice to
    organize your directories on your harddrive in such a way that you could
    automate the upload, but I find the DW connection quite flakey and prefer to
    control the whole mess myself.

    When I log on to my host with WS_FTP, I have to select my "Site" directory
    on the left (for some reason it's stuck in the "Program Files" directory) by
    clicking on the green arrow twice, and from there I go **down** to whatever
    the "root" folder is of the file(s) I'm uploading. Then on the right I
    double-click on the folder that (on my host) is named public_html. That
    takes me to the "root" of my own pages. There my "home page" is called
    "index.html" and there are folders for each subdirectory. Those in turn can
    contain subdirectories. So on my hard drive it might look like this:

    c:/Site
    --->c:/Bonnie (my home page)
    --->Images
    --->Subpage.html
    --->something.css
    --->c:/Franc (root of Francophile stuff)
    --->c:/Dublin (root of site about training for Dublin marathon)
    --->c:/Runner (root of site about family)
    etc.

    and on my host it looks like:

    public_html
    --->Bonnie
    --->index.html
    --->images (folder)
    --->whatever.css
    --->Dublin
    etc.

    I understand your project is a lot more complex and interwoven than my
    pages, but so far (knocking on wood), as long as I define the "root" of each
    "site" (i.e., folder on my hard drive) and keep the images folders
    appropriately positioned in the heirarchy, I don't have problems with broken
    links, etc.

    I **have** decided to make a separate "site" directory on my hard drive for
    "learning" stuff, such as running PVII tutorials--then I can integrate the
    results selectively into whatever folders I choose on the pages that will
    eventually go "live."

    I don't know if this helps...I have observed that you are learning along
    with me but focusing probably on different things. This is **one** thing
    where I have experience from a past life--unfortunately, not the same with
    CSS! :-(

    I'm still wondering what the "big picture" purpose of your project is--I've
    been watching it develop with interest!

    If WS_FTP (I haven't used it in quite awhile) is anything like AceFTP, for
    every remote FTP site defined you also define a local site that it maps to.
    I suspect that the default might be "Program Files" and that is why it is
    "stuck there"

    Wow, thanks for the tips - you both really put it in perspective for me!


    "I gave up on the FTP provided with DW (4) pretty quickly..."

    Others have commented unfavorably on Dreamweaver's FTP and have recommended two or three different alternatives. Believe it or not, I actually downloaded an FTP program (WS, I think) long before I purchased Dreamweaver and learned how to use it - easily. Somehow I lost that program, and when I downloaded another FTP, I couldn't figure it out.

    But it should be a lot easier this time around. I'll probably use a second-party FTP for a while, though I'm sure Dreamweaver's FTP function will be improved before long.


    "I'm still wondering what the "big picture" purpose of your project is--I've
    been watching it develop with interest!"

    I currently have a pretty big website - probably at least 1,000 pages and perhaps as many as 2,000 or more. It was designed with FrontPage and gets quite a bit of traffic, but I want to revise it, break it into smaller websites (focusing primarily on geography/social studies, animals and symbols), add some new websites I'm working on, and move all of them to a Linux server.

    I'm also a fanatic about security, because some of my sites are political in nature, and certain people out there (notably Democrats and Republicans) play NASTY. So I'm going to have my sites hosted with at least two different ISPs, and some sites may also be mirrored.

    Anyway, I'm using Dreamweaver and Cascading Style Sheets to improve my webpages, and I've also learned a little about JavaScript, the world of Project VII, etc. I also want to learn how to use Apache, PHP and MySQL, and my last major project will probably be learning to use Linux as a desktop operating system.

    I'm currently paying about $95 a month for webhosting. My host is very reliable and generally good, but they just don't offer many features. Using Dreamweave and CCS to purge my pages of that astounding FrontPage bloat, will reduce my file size greatly. I would assume this would also reduce bandwidth, which has been by far the greatest limiting factor in my search for a new webhost.

    Anyway, I think I can host my current material and several new websites for about $50-$70 a month and get much more flexibility to boot. Thank heaven for multi-site hosting programs and CPanels!

    just want to comment-

    the ftp in dreamweaver works fine for many people.
    It's not as fast as some dedicated ftp clients- but the tie-in to the
    dreamweaver site management features outweighs the speed issue most of the
    time.

    the important thing- is that you MUST define the local and remote sites to
    the folder that contains your "homepage" index file.

    This will be very important if you start setting up a half-dozen
    subdomains....

    If you don't define the site(s) correctly- dreamweaver will make bad links
    based on the bad information- and if you use dreamweaver's ftp- it may put
    the files into the wrong folder level...

    Once you're set with the directories you want on both sides, click on the
    "Options" button. In the dialog that comes up, there's a button that
    says "Save Current Folders as Connection Folders". Click that. WS_FTP
    is now more-or-less permanently set to those directories for that
    connection.

    Let me second what blu said - I have never, ever had any problem with
    DW's ftp (v3 and MX). And given its association with site management,
    it's a *huge* advantage.
