I am using WebEasy v9.10 to create my website. I haven't done any work on my website for a while and have since transferred everything to a new laptop. Now I come to do some updates and find it is not behaving correctly as it used to.

After making changes to a page I click on Build - it says it is building to the correct folder path (C:\Users\Valued Customer\Documents\Web Easy\Html\make1changenew\). Then I publish (I use FTP Max to transfer files to my BDC host). I am transferring from my local Html folder and have checked that the folder path is correctly entered in the dialog box. But my changes don't appear on my website.

I have checked all folder paths and can find nothing wrong. However, manually checking the files shows that the file stored in the WebEasy html folder is not the updated copy. A correct version of the file is stored in a temp folder. The temp folder stores a version of all the website files from carrying out a preview. So, of course, it will never publish correctly because the file in the html folder doesn't have my changes even though it said it built it to there.

Why is it not building to the correct html folder even though it says it is? I haven't changed anything (other than reinstalling the software and my website folders and files on my new laptop) and don't know where else to look. It used to work just fine.

Well what a faff. I ended up just completely uninstalling WebEasy and reinstalling it and now, mysteriously, it is working again. I have spent over 5 hours tussling with this, I hate WebEasy.

In the long run it's much better to learn to write HTML directly in a text editor, rather than to spending time learning how various WYSIWYG editors work (or don't work).

I am having the same problem. After using WebEasy9 for some time and then updating to WebEasy 10 all my pages when I upload are all converged. I will probably delete webEasy 10 and revert back to WebEasy 9

I get the feeling it's also quicker. dry.gif
