I can’t tell you offhand, although I’m sure someone here can. My
point was, it doesn’t much matter; it won’t materially affect the way
you design sites, or not at this stage of the game anyway. Like I
said, stick it on ‘common’ and don’t give it another thought. Until
one day you need to, of course; I’m sure it’s there for a reason, but
you can certainly ignore it until that day arrives.
Probably that would make sense then to have a separate resource
folder for each page, assuming images would go there rather than in
the media folder.
Whatever you do, don’t go thinking that the Resources folder is
anything you can edit or tamper with in any way. The Resources folder
is how Freeway keeps track of what it’s done, what it’s doing etc.
Everything in there belongs to Freeway, and it’s important that you
never either add to it or take away anything that’s in there. Treat
it as ‘out of bounds’. A Media folder is a good idea, in the same
folder as you keep the site file. You can keep images and text to do
with the site in there and always have it handy. If you put images in
there before you put them into Freeway, it means you can move the
whole site in one folder and Freeway will be able to keep track of
the images. If you simply drag them in from wherever on your hard
disk, then move the site folder, Freeway will report that it can’t
find them, so a Media folder will stop this happening.
By the way your link on the freeway book appears to be broken? on
Not sure I understand that one — my book is about RapidWeaver, not
Freeway, and as far as I can see, no broken links. Would like to hear
more though, if I’m wrong. What broke for you?
And where are your photographs…would be nice to see them after 40
They’ll arrive eventually. Bit hectic right now. You had me thinking
that you knew me forty years ago there. Turns out you’re quoting my
own site at me. Sneaky …
