Chapter 19. Managing Your Web Sites > Changing a Link Sitewide

Changing a Link Sitewide

If you know that the location of a file to which you often link has changed, you can find and change each instance all at once.

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 19.72).

Figure 19.72. Find all links to any address, including an email 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 OK to start scanning for links to that file.

If any links are found, the Update Files dialog box will appear and list them (Figure 19.73).

Figure 19.73. The Update Files dialog box lists everything that links to the given URL.


5.
To proceed with the changes, click Update.

6.
If File Check In/Check Out is enabled, Dreamweaver will attempt to check out the files. You can cancel the FTP dialog box (Figure 19.74) and the files will still be updated locally.

Figure 19.74. If you don't want to check out the files, click Cancel. Your changes will be saved locally, but nothing will happen yet on the remote site.
