Chapter 20. Managing Your Web sites > Changing a Link Sitewide

Changing a Link Sitewide

If you know that the location of a file to which you link often has changed, you can edit all occurrences of that link easily.

To change a link sitewide:

1.
From the Site window menu bar, select Site > Change Link Sitewide. The Change Link Sitewide dialog box will appear (Figure 20.48).

Figure 20.48. Find all links to any address, including an e-mail address or image path, and change them in a snap.


2.
Type the old URL in the Change All Links To text box, or click the browse icon to choose the file.

3.
Type the new URL in the Into Links To text box, or click the browse icon to choose the file.

4.
Click on OK to start scanning for links to that file.

5.
If any links are found, the Update Files dialog box will appear and list them (Figure 20.49).

Figure 20.49. The Update Files dialog box lists everything that links to the given URL.


6.
To proceed with the changes, click Update.

7.
If File Check In/Check Out is enabled, Dreamweaver will attempt to check out the files. See Chapter 21 for details. You can Cancel the FTP dialog box (Figure 20.50) and the files will still be updated locally.

Figure 20.50. If you d on't want to check out the files, click Cancel. Your changes will be saved locally, but nothing will happen yet on the remote site.
