Hi Lee

To answer your question... Yes... but only for the images and files you rearrange in your file manager and not for the ones you don't move.

You will need to do your file rearrange in your file manager and then for each image and file you move you need to replace that image with the new located image or file on your websites pages.

In regards to the swf files these are embedded with code and you can easily change the code to point to the new location. (this is much easier than the picture huh)

Just right click on the image in you resources folder and or click and drag to highlight many and select "Copy" then open the new folder to paste the images and or files. Then once you have made your changes and you have replaced the images on your pages and you know for certain that the images are in the new folder you can delete the previous versions in their original resources folder.

Happy site building
Ed

Hi Lee,

Yes they will be affected as the location has changed. You need to follow these steps to correct it:

1. Click on 'Edit' on the top-left of the file.
2. Navigate to the file in your File Manager.
3. Click on 'Select'.
4. This will ensure that the correct path is being used for your file.
