Hi all,
what have I got set up wrong on my Site Publishing Settings.

Why does the whole site seem to be uploaded 'again' inside a folder with the whole site name again?

EG:

http://lanksheardesign.com/lanksheardesign.com/Home.html

and junk like this
http://lanksheardesign.com/lanksheardesign.com/Our_work/Our_work.html

Why can't it just be

http://lanksheardesign.com/home

or

http://lanksheardesign.com/Our_work

I'm hosting via ftp with non-mac webhost. Does that affect what Directory/Path: I should type in? (Currently /public_html/ )

What about the iWeb Website URL path (Your site's root URL. Used for creating links and RSS feeds.)

What should that be and why?

Cheers.

This should explain the issue and how to resolve it (http://apptorial.com/avoiding-long-urls-in-iweb-what-is-domain-masking/)

Or this (http://www.ehow.com/how_4917516_create-shorter-urls-iweb-mobileme.html)

OK, fixed it apart from this bit below. Something about slideshows is messing up our URL now. See how it has a double our_work?

http://lanksheardesign.com/Our_work/Our_work.html

Also, if you click on this link above you'll see the main "Our work" page.

Is there any way to have JUST this page with the 6 different categories of work coming up in slideshows when one clicks on the images?

EG: Now when one clicks on brochures it takes you to the follow brochures page, and then you have to decide weather to click through them manually or Play the slideshow.

http://lanksheardesign.com/Our_work/Pages/Brochure_design.html

(And why does /Pages/ come up here as well?)

Instead of this, what would be ideal is if 'Play slideshow' is above each category of work and they just click on that.

What would be even MORE ideal is if clicking on the image for 'brochures' started the brochure slideshow. Any way to do that?

Thanks all!
