    hello all

    appologies, but this is the first time i've used Fetch/uploaded a webpage. i am running on an iMac v9.2, and authored the pages in Dreamweaver (the internal FTP is not working in DW, hence me trying to use Fetch).

    i was told "public_html" is where to put my files. so, i have my index page in that directory (with the appropriate jpgs, etc. as well). when i try to preview in a browser, i do NOT see my index(home) page...UNLESS i type in /index1.html after www.oraia.net.

    question in the back: do i need to have this be called "index.html" instead of "index1.html"?

    question #2, still in the public_html directory: do i need to have additional directories for my flash side and html sides of my site? then put corresponding files in said directories? ...i've already done this on a whim, BUT:

    because even when i am viewing my index/home page (on a browser, after *sigh* manually typing it in), i go to click on the "flash" button and the corresponding "flash main page" 'can not be found on the server'.

    all files are there for viewing in Fetch, what am i doing wrong??

    please, please help, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!

    muchas!

    do i need to have this be called "index.html" instead of "index1.html"?

    Yes, it should be index.html.

    do i need to have additional directories for my flash side and html sides of my site?

    No. The important thing is that files be where your HTML links say they are. So if the flash button is linked to "myflashfile.swf" then "myflashfile.swf" should be in the same directory as the page linking to it. If the link says "flashfiles/myflashfile.swf" then "myflashfile.swf" should be in a directory named "flashfiles". And so on.

    I hope this helps,
