[Pro] archive/site folder

When I was making my site I saw that, instead of reading “site folder” at the top of the column to the left of the window, it said “blank website.” Which I figured out meant that all my site pages were scattered in the file of that name in my document folder among earlier versions of the site.

To correct that I created a new folder and dragged the files into that folder, which I called ppb. Thus ppb appeared at the folder name when working on the site.

I’m feel that i’m done doing the site, for now anyway, and created an archive folder, which I used. Opening that folder I see that my Media file has tons of stuff in it. There is a file with the name of the site, which is a .freeway file.

However, the “site folder” is empty. (I assume this is because of my earlier error in not naming something correctly that resulted in no site folder created for the site.)

I assume this is a problem.

My questions are:

  1. Is my solution to rename the “ppb” folder “site folder?” Is this even a problem?

  2. What did I miss that resulted in my page folders having no place to go? Is there something I can do now to save it correctly?

  3. Should I just copy my “ppb” folder into my archive and hope this doesn’t happen again?

Thanks for any help. You all have been really gracious and helpful.

Can I follow up and say that perhaps I’m asking why, if I’ve designated the folder where those files are stored (and if I’m able to upload and edit successfully) why, when I save to an archive, is it not able to archive that folder as well?

Obviously I’ve incorrectly set up the site folder, but what to do about it.

No, this is designed behavior. When you archive a site, Freeway makes a new copy of the document, severs all links between that copy and the previous locations of all of the external resources (photos, movies, scripts, anything you attached to a page using native methods or Actions) and then copies over all of those external resources into a new Media folder. When you publish the archived site for the first time, it will publish everything into the new Site Folder that it created inside the archive folder, and it won’t have any trouble finding any of the resources, because they will all be in that one Media folder inside the archive folder.
