- Store your project(s) under a simple folder structure such as:
- Do not store your projects under MyDocuments on your Desktop or other location that has an underlying complex, long and space-embedded structure.
Reason: Before long you will have a dozen projects; it is best to store them in a simple, easy to find and backup, folder structure. Also, as you build your project, you will invariably have to manipulate files directly in the project folder and -- we know from experience -- if you store your projects in MyDocumets, eventually you won't be able to find them.
- Do not store your projects (development files) under the A5Webroot folder (where you typically publish your project).
- Never publish to the same place where you store your development files. If you publish over your development files, you will ruin your project.
- Always provide a unique name for the Target Folder in the Publishing Profile, typically the same name as your project name. Do not use the phrase "<Default>" even though it is the suggested default on the publishing dialog.
- Do not embed spaces or special characters in any folder name, project name, component name, uploaded filenames, etc.
- Most professional developers open their A5W pages in Source View rather than WYSIWYG. You can toggle this at View > Settings > Preferences > HTML Editor > Default Tab=Source.
