creating multiple duplicate sub directories (2 posts)

    I have been using fetch for about a few months, I was able to upload my site from Iweb and have it publish to the web. The more changes I was making meant more republishing and the loading time seemed to be getting longer and longer. I finally noticed that I had like 6 duplicate subdirectories. I deleted them and re tried to republish and before I hit the publish button I looked at the folder and a new duplicate subdirectory was there. I am still learning how all this works and so I am very green but I seems like this isnt normal, let me know if its just me and that this is normal or not, thanks.

    When re-publishing an iWeb website, it's usually best to publish to a new folder each time, so that the files from the last time you published the website don't get mixed in with the files from when you publish the newly updated website. That may help with the duplicate folders problem; I'd suggest you give that a try.

    If that doesn't help, it sounds like an iWeb problem; when you publish your site to a folder on your Mac, Fetch is not involved - Fetch is only involved once you go to upload the published files to your server. So if you continue to see duplicate folders on your Mac when you publish your iWeb website, you may want to consult with Apple to help figure out what's going on.

    I hope this helps, and if I have misunderstood the problem you are having, let us know.
