I'm trying to insert hyperlinks into subpages of my website.  I constantly get a message stating "The file is outside of the root folder of site "unnamed site" and may not be accessible when you publish the site".  I've never seen this before. Are their any ideas as to how to resolve this problem?

Make sure your site is selected in the Files window.

Make sure you are saving within a subfolder that appears within that defined site.

If both of the above are already being done, what is the exact method you are using to create your links?

If the pages are not in your local site folder, use absolute links (without the spaces).
