Mirroring and path names (3 posts)

    Got a question.

    I'm building a new blog locally. If I mirror it to a Web site, will Fetch correct all the paths?

    For instance, will it change:

    http://localhost/ . . . .

    To:

    http://www.misterthorne.org

    In every file that needs such a change.

    Thanks.

    Fetch will not change the contents of your HTML files. In general you should use relative links, so they will work locally or on the server.

    For example, if page1.html links to page2.html, the link would look like this:

    <a href="page2.html">

    That will work as long as page1 and page2 are in the same folder, either locally or on a server.

    Does that answer your question?

    Thanks,
