    All my web addresses show up with "public_html" in their link and as a result I am getting a 404 error. Please help!

    Hi Laura,

    For clarification - is this just a problem with the Fetch WebView feature?

    If you go to your website in a web browser (by typing its address manually, or by using a bookmark in the web browser), does it work okay?

    Thanks,

    It is a problem with Web View. The links work in my browser if I type them in. Thanks.

    Hi Laura,

    It sounds like your WebView setup needs to be edited so that Fetch has the correct information about your website address.

    Please try the following:

    * Open Fetch.
    * Go to the Fetch menu, and choose Preferences.
    * Click the WebView tab.
    * Double-click on the entry for your website (if there is more than one) to edit it.
    * In the second field (the one whose text begins with http:// ), edit the text to remove public_html (if there is a slash after public_html, delete the slash too).
    * Click OK.
    * Close the Preferences window.
    * Connect to your server.
    * Try WebView again.

    Let us know if you're still having problems after giving that a try.

    Thanks,

    I tried going into Webview in Preferences and public_html isn't listed in http:// ... Any other suggestions? Thanks for your help.

    Hi Laura,

    Okay, sorry that wasn't useful advice.

    Could you please tell me exactly what you do have in each of the fields of the WebView preference? Then I should be able to figure out how it's misconfigured.

    Note that the Fetch WebView settings don't affect the addresses of your webpage in any way - it's just a convenient way for you to view a file shown in the Fetch window in your web browser. As long as the webpage works when you go to view it directly in your browser (without using Fetch's WebView), then your page is working just fine. The only problem here is that WebView is using an incorrect address when it asks your web browser to display one of your pages.

    Thanks,
