Lead Me up The Righteous PATH

By john.m1 ·
Hi, I know that i know this but,,,,,i am tired now.
OK i have a "folderA" which contains "folderB" and a "shortcut".

FolderB has an HTML based picture gallery with thumbnails and an index.html etc. the shortcut in folderA is to the index.html in "folderB". It all works fine.

Repeat it all works fine until i burn to CD. the shortcut now points to the wrong path. I understand why it is wrong but please tell me how to make it work when on a CD. i want the root of the CD to show f"olderAand the shortcut" just to keep things simple.

I am guessing that in the shortcut icon properties, i enter some kind of generic path (\\folderA\index.html). Help Please

I think it is - in properties of shortcut - it probably says something like
c:\foldera\folderb\indexfilename.xxx

change this to
\\foldera\folderb\indexfilename.xxx

Lumberjack's right, however.....

I would HIGHLY suggest:
Delete the shortcut file
Bring the index.html file up one directory
Re-coding your index.html file so your links point one directory down.

This'll keep your dirs happy, and if you bring the CD somewhere that doesn't understand that shortcut (Macs come to mind), you'll still be able to work it all just fine.

Lumberjack, thanks but i still couldnt getit to work, i had already tried most variations of path.

MichaelJ, yep i had already created a simple HTML page in the "folderA" directory and used it for Credits/instructions etc and Linked to Gallery1 and Gallery2. still need to learn the path way as it may help me in the future.

Big Thanks to both of you, i'll accept both answers and close now.
