Dreamweaver, a way to check where a file is used?

  Mysticnas 08:04 01 Sep 2005

Hi all,

I've got a site at work and i've been asked to clear it up by a colleague, eg. duplicate images etc...

However, another colleague has said to consult her before I do anything. Now there are a lot of images in this folder and I currently no way of knowing which file is in use by what and have to check each page manually to see if the image is used on a page or not.

Is there an automated way in Dreamweaver to achieve this? To see what links are pointing to the image?

Thanks all.

There is not a facility, in Dreamweaver to check images with no link to them.

However you could set up a 'dummy' site. Copy all the pages to it (Don't update links), but NOT copy the images.

Then go to Site / Check links sitewide (ctrl +F8). This will find all the 'missing' images.

Therefore if an image is NOT on this list, it is NOT required.

Hope this makes sense.

make sense... however, copying the site will take sometime... it's quite a large site. :o( and there are 1000's of images.

However, i've found another way, albeit lengthy too....

If you go into Dreamweaver and right click an image, a gray menu pops up. Go to Edit, then Delete and if it's being used/linked to by anything else it was warn you.

eg. mpPic.jpg is being used by: //mypage.htm are you sure you want to delete it? I'm just deleting the one's without a warning.

Urgh.. it's a lengthy task though.
