Ok, this is really bugging me. Is there a place in Dreamweaver MX (not 2004) that you can set all links to be created as site-relative, not document relative?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Eric Bouwsema

Find somewhere on a page that you want to make a link.

Click the folder on the properties bar next to the link box. Navigate to the file you wish to link to and then in the bottom box define how you want the links to be (e.g. document- or site-relative). It should now stay the way you did it until you change it again.

stever,

Thanks for the info, but I would like everything to default to site-relative, rather than document relative for each new link I add. It seems logical that there would be a way to set a default preference for this.

But stever's answer is the answer you're looking for. Read his last sentence again:
It should now stay the way you did it until you change it again.

This is a "sticky" setting -- you select site-root-relative once, and from now on all links will default to site-root-relative -- unless and until you change it again.
