I recently had to update my company’s website, so I went through my usual process. However, after exporting to a new folder, I seem to be getting a ton of extraneous and duplicate folders/files.
Here’s a screenshot of the most recent attempt. Notice how I have my core folders [terms, products, contact, services, etc.] but then I’m getting “-1” or “-1-1” and even “-2” duplicates. Why is this happening and how do I make it stop?!
Here’s my current export settings. I don’t recall specifically setting any of them, so if this is the issue, I have no issue adjusting as necessary. (And I really don’t know what “minify” is even referring to…)
Hello My Friend, I had similar problems so I would select to replace the entire website when I exported, doing this deleted the entire content of the previously exported website and gave me a fresh set of files to upload.
Note: FTP programs can be tricky.
Transmit will lose the project directory and move up one folder in the hierarchy, so if you don’t watch it and click sync you could possibly start uploading everything that folder.
Forklift. No problems, Forklift will happily stay locked into the right directory even if it is deleted and re generated.
I want to clarify one thing regarding the adjusted title - these duplicate folders are being created upon EXPORT of the project from the Blocs program. They are not being duplicated on a subsequent file upload to the website.
