Chapter 2. Developing Site Structure > Restructuring Existing Site Elements

Restructuring Existing Site Elements

In the first phase of structuring a site—making new folders where needed—Dreamweaver's file-management features are a great convenience. It's easiest to use Dreamweaver for file organization chores within any defined site. In the second phase, moving existing pages and folders into the new folders, it's essential that Dreamweaver be used to maintain the proper links.

One of Dreamweaver's most powerful features is its capability to maintain links. Whenever a page is moved or renamed, Dreamweaver scans the entire site to locate any links pointing to the altered page. A list of these links is then presented to the user with an option to update the pages and correct the links. In almost all circumstances, you'll want Dreamweaver to update the links. If the links are not adjusted, your site could potentially be littered with broken links, which is a very slow and tedious problem to fix manually.
