I wonder if you can help me, I’ve been using my website for 10 years without any problems until a couple of weeks ago when I went to upload the site after knocking an item off. Instead of just synchronizing the 2 pages I’d changed, it tried to re-synchronize the whole site and got stuck. Since then it will stick on different pictures until the connection is lost. I’ve checked everything I can think of. I did get it to synchronize off-line, but it won’t upload.
I’m using Dreamweaver 3; any ideas?
Yours in anticipation,

Sorry to learn you’re having trouble. Many things can cause problems when you upload a site. There may have been changes on the Web server you use, or your version of Dreamweaver may have been damaged or there may be corrupt files in your site.
Whatever the cause, here are a few possible solutions. First, try uploading just the pages you changed, not the entire site. You don’t have to synchronize to use Dreamweaver to update your site. If you’re timing out with the Synchronize feature, see if you can fix the problem by just selecting the pages you want to update and then clicking on the Upload arrow.
Did you mean you’re using Dreamweaver 3 or CS3? If you’re using Dreamweaver 3, you really should consider upgrading; that is a very old version of the program and after years and all the changes on the web, you really can’t rely on a program that old to be stable. If you’re using version CS3, you’re probably fine, although it is also definitely getting old by web standards.
Hope that helps,
