Topic Summary
Posted by: Jon Zaremba Posted on: Aug 23rd, 2008, 7:28pm
I'm going nuts.  I am using EasyWebEditor to create html pages to upload to my website via generic FTP.  I am not using the program to manage my entire site, just individual pages.
When i create a page that has an image, it previews fine before uploading.  When i upload it and view it, the image is missing.  
Checking the image properties shows that the location is correct, but the image file name is changed.  Checking my root directory, i see that the program creates a duplicate of every image with it's own file name.
When "publishing", i made sure that the "use original file name" box is checked.  
How can i get it to point to the correct file name.  Or if that's not possible, how can i link to an image that exists somewhere else on the web without typing in the code manually?  If i can just type in the address of the image that is on my server, that would be a workaround...
Thanks in advance,
Jon Zaremba

first of all, the better way is to use the EasyWebEditor internal FTP: it includes an optimizer that publishes only modified / added things. This way you save time and hassle.
If you want to manually create HTML and publish it, it's not that complicated. Use the Publish >Export or File >Export feature, then choose HTML as format. Then choose for the output a folder (path) that is completely empty, so that you will not mix files with maybe existing files. EWE will output the complete set of files needed for the web site. It is preferable to use the automatic naming (so to not choose "use original file names") but it works also if you don't.

p.s. by the way, if you are using EWE for single pages, you are missing the key EWE feature: to manage a whole web site at once, in a d**n fast way, without hassles.

Ok...i think i figured it out.  Maybe someone can correct me if i'm wrong...
But does the program look at an image that is inserted bit by bit to see if it is identical to another image in that same directory?
In other words, if i have rule1.jpg and rule2.jpg but they are identical files, just renamed...will the program fail to publish "rule2.jpg" knowing that it is the same as rule1.jpg in order to save disk space?
I went in and deleted the duplicate images that the program created, re-saved my same images into the directory, re-inserted them into the same index.htm page, and uploaded to overwrite everything on my server.  In doing so, when published, the results were the same -- meaning that the image names were reverted back to the arbitrary name assigned to the duplicates by the program.
Sooooo....i took those same very images and modified them slightly.  Then re-saved, re-inserted, re-uploaded, etc...  Now when viewing the page, i am seeing the correct file names and image locations.
I can't think of any other reason for this program to behave this way unless it is just trying to minimize online disk space by avoiding duplicates.  That is ok, and this situation would be rare for most folks...but is there a way to turn that function off (if i'm correct, that is)?  I don't want the program to do too much thinking for me, if possible...
Thanks Again,
Jon Z.

p.s. - Thanks for the replies too.  I know what you mean about letting it manage my whole site, but i have specific folders for specific things that i can't have tampered with.  I like to easily be able to link directly to specific files on my site and it's easier if i have subfolders and recognizable names...

When you insert an image into a EWE page, it is inserted into the internal EWE database, and its origin is forgot.
In fact, if you insert the image mickey.jpeg, then you delete it, the image will still show in your EWE site; and will be saved within the AEH file (as any other image and page of the website).
This is very handy as you have a whole website (pages images etc) everything archived in one single file (that you can move to another computer etc; you don't have a mess of images and you don't have to care about original files)
To avoid wasting spaces, when the program detects an attempt to insert an identical image (already seen / stored for that site), it is not stored: it uses the image already available. This is just one of the optimizations that EWE does for you.
This can not be "disabled" as the program does not care about your original images: in your example, it sees that rule2.jpg is identical to rule1.jpg, so it will use rule1 and stop.
Since years you are the only one that wants to assign different names to the same image - you must be selling hard disks (or you own STX or WDC stocks ). In any case you discovered the only possible trick (to create a slightly different image).

ah ok, I read your last p.s. right now.
I understand... the program looks too much intelligent
well at least now you know how it works and why...
