Is there a little number in the bottom-right of the alert dialog?
Copy it down, and e-mail it to supportATsoftpress.com. They will be
able to tell exactly what it means, down to where in the code it’s
throwing a tantrum.

Some good debugging steps to go through while you wait: Where is the
folder that you are trying to publish to located? Are all of the
original images and other external resource files (like Flash or
QuickTime) located on your computer, or are they on a server
somewhere? Have you restarted Freeway, or the computer itself, in a
while?

ok ive have sorted it out now.
i done the following

Backup all documents, HTML output files and graphic files.

Open you Freeway document.

Choose Edit > Resources and click Resample All.

Do a Save As into the same folder under a different name.

Quit Freeway.

Delete your site folder (HTML output folder). Empty the Trash.

Reopen the newly saved document.

Choose Edit > Resources and click Resample All.

Choose File > Publish Site.

Save the document

Hi Terry,

Nice minimalist site.
I admire your work. Do you plan to sell any of it on-line?

IMHO you don’t need ‘as an artist’ at the end of the second par on your home page (already stated).
In Firefox, I’m seeing the larger images of your work with mouse-over (no need to click). That’s the same for all of your display pages. If I do click, no larger image appears, apart from what’s already on display with roll-over.

Cheers, Rob

hi rob thanks for the comments,
firstly, the work is not mine, but a friends,
i just done the site for him, and ill pass on you comments.

he will be selling work in the near future, thats the next phase of the site, setting up the e-commerce side of things, so keep checking,

i will be removing the “as an artist”, many thanks for that.
maybe i should re-phrase the “click” to “point to” or something.

many thanks for your comments.

if you use the link on the site and drop stuart an email, im sure he will be delighted and send you some more examples of work if you let him know what you’d be interested in.

many thanks

Hi Terry,

In my browser (Safari 2) the text becomes very difficult to read when it flows into the white area on right. It’s fine when placed on the black area.

Sorry, I meant the white area on the left, under ‘Stuart A. Wilkinson’.

Terry,

Try enlarging your browser window. The black background moves to the right but most of the text does not. Where the text overflows into the white area it becomes almost illegible. Just trying to help, looks like a good site.

I have this problem and am not understanding completely the instructions of Terry above.

“Save as into the same folder under a different name”
then
“Delete the site folder”

Sorry but I don’t want to mess this up. Can someone give me a little more detailed instruction?

Do a Save As into the same folder under a different name.

All he means is to Save As the Freeway document with a different name ie if your FW doc is called mysite.freeway then Save As mynewsite.freeway

The Deletion of the Site Folder is a separate step. At time of Preview/Publish FW will populate the Site Folder with the FW generated Html files and Resources. If you delete the Site folder (and create a new one) it will ensure that there is no legacy FW generated html etc left over and it will all be created fresh.

Recently I made a screencast. It’s more dedicated to “What makes your old FW projects valuable”. And certainly, the Site Folder plays a big role in there. Perhaps you find some useful infos there:
