Moving, Renaming, and Reorganizing Pages

As the number of files in your Web site grows, organizing them into folders and establishing naming conventions will become increasingly important. The need to reorganize or rename pages isn’t necessarily a sign of poor planning; more often, it’s simply a sign that your Web site has grown. A topic that began as a single Web page might, over time, become a dozen pages and warrant its own folder. And a small collection of picture files will likely become difficult to search after growing to a hundred or so pictures.

If you have local or file-sharing access to your Web site’s file area, you can move, copy, rename, or delete files with Microsoft Windows Explorer, the command prompt, or any number of utility programs. Even if you don’t have such access, you can make changes with an FTP program. Unfortunately, these approaches do nothing to adjust hyperlinks from other pages to the moved or renamed files. Unless you locate and correct these links manually, your Web site won’t function properly.
