    Links constantly altered

    Hi everyone,

    I’ve been having a problem with links and I just don’t know how to solve it. Let me explain the situation. I add, on regular basis, content to our company website. The website uses a template so I can only add text through a limited administrator interface. Because I have no experience with HTML, I use Dreamweaver’s ‘designer view’ to get the text the way I want it and then I cut and past the HTML code into the administrator interface. The webpage that I’m responsible for is made up of numerous articles. To make it easier to jump from one article to the next article on the same page, I use a lot of links. When I cut and copy the HTML code into the administrator interface, the first bit of code with links looks like this:

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Untitled Document</title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    </head>

    <body>
    <p align="left"><font size="5" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><strong><a href="#Cobouw">Cobouw Publicaties</a><br>
    <a href="#Building_Business">Building Business Publicaties</a><br>
    <a href="#Losse_publicaties">Losse Publicaties</a><br>
    <a href="#Andere_publicaties">Andere Publicaties</a></strong></font></p>
    <hr align="left">

    When I click on, for example the first link, the link works perfectly, meaning I jump down a few inches on the webpage and in the navigator window the following line appears:

    http://www.mywebsite.com./pagina.asp?id=10090&pid=1510&mid=1513#Cobouw
    So far, so good … but now the problems start. When I save the new HTML code in the administrator interface and log off, all of the links are changed and no longer work. I’ve figured out that the HTML code is altered to this:

    <P align=left><FONT face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=5><STRONG><A href="http://www.zvh.nl/htmleditor.asp?nr=&amp;id_editbox=wys19&amp;w=600&amp;bg=D4D0C8&amp;blnAdvanced=1#Cobouw">Cobouw Publicaties</A><BR><A href="http://www.zvh.nl/htmleditor.asp?nr=&amp;id_editbox=wys19&amp;w=600&amp;bg=D4D0C8&amp;blnAdvanced=1#Building_Business" >Building Business Publicaties</A><BR><A href="http://www.zvh.nl/htmleditor.asp?nr=&amp;id_editbox=wys19&amp;w=600&amp;bg=D4D0C8&amp;blnAdvanced=1#Losse_publicaties" >Losse Publicaties</A><BR><A href="http://www.zvh.nl/htmleditor.asp?nr=&amp;id_editbox=wys19&amp;w=600&amp;bg=D4D0C8&amp;blnAdvanced=1#Andere_publicaties ">Andere Publicaties</A></STRONG></FONT></P>
    <HR align=left>

    and when I click on the first link it opens to the following page:

    http://www.mywebsite.com/htmleditor.asp?nr=&id_editbox=wys19&w=600&bg=D4D0C8&blnAdvanced=1#Cobouw

    I then get the error message:
    The page cannot be found. The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.I have tried, numerous times, to delete the added code and to save it that way, but for some reason it keeps coming back. I’m getting really frustrated and any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

    That's just the sort of thing the CMS that drives your site needs to operate. It thinks all links are to another page and fixes your code accordingly. You need to either learn how to do intrapage links like that within that system or get the original developers to fix it if it can't do intrapage links today.
