Default How to have absolute URL's by default. - 08-21-2004 , 06:27 PM






HI, When adding link to images and files, by default it uses /folder/file in
the code. How can I set it so that the code has it as
http://www.domain.com/folder/file by default. I know I could do it at the
end, but that would be too time consuming.

Thanks
David

David:

I'm curious why you need to do this.

I believe you can do this by using the <base> tag, e.g.,

<base href=''http://www.domain.com/folder/''>
</head>

Why would that require absolute links?

i don't see a reason to do it- other than being able to repeat the domain
name endlessly.

this older message may help:
Two tips on this:

To make sure that images with absolute paths show up in design view:
Assuming that these images are in the current Site; That they do exist
inside of the Local Site Folder:
1) Let dw know what the full path to your site is:
Dw menu-->Site-->Edit Site or Manage Site
Select that site, press Edit

Click the "Advanced" tab at top, because it's quicker to find things.

Click "Local Info" in the category list on left.

Fill in the "HTTP Address" line with the address you use.
http://mysite.com
http://www.mysite.com
or
http://www.myhost.com/mysite

Now dw will treat absolute paths that are within your site as local paths.
{As Long As the images and links exist on your hd in the Local Site Folder,
they will display in Design view, and dw will manage the links if you rename
or move things. If the images don't exist in the Local Site Folder, they
won't show- dw will not pull them from the web}

2) install this extension to change linking methods with a click of a
button:
If you want to quickly change links to a different linking method- install
the Relativity Extension.
http://e7x.com/dw/ Relativity ext.
or here
http://www.microwaved.plus.com/dw/

(this Extension means you can make relative links in dreamweaver while doing
the layout, and then presto change all of them to full http:// links without
hand typing thedomain name or doing a find and replace)

I always make it a practice to use absolute URL's in doing SEO. I picked
this up a while ago, and my SEO results have been good, so I guess I'm in
the habit now.

But what is the basis for this? I can't think of any reason why it's a
practice of any value at all. Furthermore, it makes your maintenance of the
site quite onerous.

As long as your pages are not doing cross-domain linking, it is no
required to use fully qualified URLs in your links.

Will only do absolute one file at at time (by design), would only be a one
liner (to add an extra button) to get it to go sitewide but anyone wanting
absolute links on every page in a site is in need of education not an
extension

SEO isn't really my subject but if relative/absolute links make any
difference then the SE in question in is broken.
