    Default Folders vs Site Layout

    somewhere in the forum I remember reading that there is a way that, regardless of how your Site View is constructed, all of your html's and data go to the root folder and not to individually self named folders...

    can someone point me to that instruction, or maybe just set me right..

    Thanks

    - Go to Publish View.
    - Click Publish, click Arrange Files, then choose By Flat.
    - Republish the entire site and it will replace the old structure with the new one.

    But the files from the old structure will still be there unless you delete them. Good practice is to delete all the files from the document root up either on your server or in your Local Publish directory and then do what Laurence says.

    Franko is right about deleting files and folders first... even though he is just trying to pad his total number of posts so he can hit 2,000 and go to the Caribbean.

    well.. at 1500, he got the 5% off Steak Knife set coupon....

    But seriously, Thanks!

    Franko, Typically when I make a major change to the site (such as this) I usually Filezilla in and nuke the site prior to publish anyway. But a great tip for others who might not think of doing that!
