    I am totally new user of Fetch and website development: probably a very basic question.

    Fetch "Name" column lists "files" then "index.html" then "page1", "page2" and so on. Our website has names for these pages. Within Fetch, are we supposed to change the "page1"...etc. description to the same name that that "page1" represents on our website?

    I use RapidWeaver and I recall seeing that requirement mentioned someplace.

    No, generally you should not rename the webpage files after uploading them. The files on the servers should have the same names as the files when they were on your Macintosh.

    Renaming the files on the server will break the links between the webpages, because the links look for the pages they link to by their filename - so if a page links to "page1" and you rename it to "photo-page" (for example), all the links to that page will stop working, because they will still be looking for a file named "page1" and won't know you've changed the filename.

    Please let us know if this answers your question or not.

    Are you trying to solve a problem with your website? If so, if you can tell us a little more detail we can try to help you.
