REnsing Level 1 Level 1

I'm using iWeb '09 and it appears the when I publish the site, it removes my .SWF file from the published folders.

The SWF file belongs to a page that has HTML on it linking to that file using the html snippet in iWeb.

If I make changes to the page and publish it, it seems like it wipes the entire folder for that page and re-publishes only files for that page. (Which technically that .swf file is not part of)

Is this normal behaviour?

Will it behave the same if I publish using FTP direct to the site?

If iWeb does what you describe, then keep your swf file OUTSIDE the published folder.


You may have to re-adjust the pathname to the file in the HTML snippet.


In general, do not put custom files inside the folder with the sitename.

Put the swf file in the root folder of your hosting account, the same folder where you publish your site folder to, and link to it there.  That will keep it out of the clutches of iWeb and prevent it from being deleted whenever you republish the site.


The link to the file would be http://your-domain-name.com/xxx.swf
