I've got a weird and semi-concerning issue going on here... something
(or someone) is changing the code on my department website. I've been
asked to create a Census 2010 information page for Residential Life. I
did so at http://reslife.uvm.edu/census2010 ... okay, thats fine. Now,
I've been asked to link to it from different pages... first
http://reslife.uvm.edu homepage, which worked fine. Then
http://reslife.uvm.edu/ira which worked fine. Finally, to help the folks
over at OSCR at http://www.uvm.edu/~stdcmrel/ ... which was all fine.
Next thing I know, I received an email from the folks who manage the
website over at OSCR stating the census icon next to the link I created
is gone. I go back into the code, and I noticed that what I had
originally type (<img
src='http://reslife.uvm.edu/census2010/images/small-logo.gif'>) had been
changed by something or someone to (<img
src='../census2010/images/small-logo.png'>) ... I did not make this
change, and the web folks over there say the changed wasn't made on
their end. I was very confused, but put it aside because it was Friday.
I thought perhaps the web software they use automatically did it.
So all has been well until this afternoon when doing other miscellaneous
web updates I notice the icon on the ResLife homepage is missing. I go
into the code to find the SAME EXACT CHANGE. Unfortunately,
whatever/whoever is doing this does not realize that the link will not
work like that. My guess is this is something software related? Its
certainly not my web software (Dreamweaver) as I have hundreds of other
links like that that are never magically changed. On top of that, I
haven't edited default.php at all today, which is the homepage. It
hasn't even been opened.
Does anybody have the slightest clue as to why this is happening? Its a
little frustrating/concerning. Any help would be very much appreciated.
