Static pages and shortcuts
Wed, 24 Apr 2002 15:33:36 +0100
Thanks to Jim and David. I've not made much progress though. I changed my
filenames in site structure, removing all upper case letters, with no
effect. The problem is with the way shortcuts are rendered though.
Rendering the site gives a list of URLs which accurately reflect the site
structure, and these URLs represent real html files. So for instance:
becomes http://dio.cdlr.strath.ac.uk/diostandards/academicguide.html ,
Where does that 'dio' come from? Is this something to do with the way I've
set up the folder and url for static rendering in the Control Panel?
