    Hi,

    Generally, when you want to make changes to your webpages, you make changes in whatever program you first used to create and edit them, and then upload the webpages again in Fetch.

    When you say you fixed the problem, what did you do?

    Thanks,

    I made the changes in Textedit. Saved them then went to Fetch. I'm not sure where to go from there. I'm surprised I got Anything on the internet> I'm not sure what I did. When I went back to Fetch after making changes. I uploaded the files I made changes to and then there were new files showing that said "Copies of" ???

    Hi,

    TextEdit is a very poor choice for editing webpages (aka HTML files). Unless you are very careful, it will save files in the wrong format, and even if you save them as HTML, it will lose some of your formatting.

    Also, TextEdit sometimes has problems where it cannot save HTML back to a file with the same name, which may be why you ended up with "Copy of..." files - those were created by TextEdit. I'd guess you have two versions of every file you edited - the original, unchanged file, and the new "Copy of" files that have your changes in them. When you uploaded the folder with Fetch, it uploaded both copies.

    You need to be able to save the changes to files with the same name, and TextEdit on 10.2 won't do that for you.

    We recommend TextWrangler from BBEdit as a good, free text editor, however you have to write the HTML code yourself when you use TextWranger.

    You may want to also investigate nVu, which is a free, WYSIWYG webpage editor. The free Seamonkey browser also includes a simple webpage either. However, I have never personally used either of them. There are also several good lower-cost webpage editors, such as RapidWeaver or iWeb.

    For understanding Fetch, you may find reading our introductory tutorial help pages useful - choose Fetch Help from the Help menu, and search for tutorial.

    Thanks,
