KompoZer: Relative paths to HTML files in Site Manager.

I installed Portable NVu to my usb drive and it works well. If I use a drive letter, it works fine on that box, but then after moving to a different machine where the usb drive is mounted with a different drive letter, the files can't be found until I edit this location.

I'd like to be able to specify a relative path to my site html files on the removable disk, but haven't been able to figure out the relative syntax. Has any other user figured out how to specify a relative path?

Not sure what you mean

I thought the site manager was only for connecting to HTTP/FTP servers and editing and posting files. How do you set up a local site with it?

You can specify a path on

You can specify a path on your local system in which your files are stored. By the "Publishing Server" box, there is a button to select a directory and you can browse to a local location. That's what I would like to make relative so I can easily access my web pages on my usb drive.

Ah ok

I see it now. Didn't even know that was an option in NVU. Due to the location (in prefs.js) it will be a bit difficult to make that portable. I'll mull it over a bit and see if I can come up with a solution. Or, if anyone else wants to chime in, I'm open to suggestions.

Does it accept locations

Does it accept locations like \Docs\HTdocs\index.html or %GeckoDrive%?

Nope

It uses the standard URL syntax of:
file:///x:/dirname/

I'll need to do some launcher trickery to get it working as desired.
