I now have to transfer a site from one host to another. When I download all seems fine but when I upload to the new host all the external links are prefaced with (part of?) the location on the local machine and so do not work. Is there a simple way to download then upload to different host?

That seems clear for download.
In the Export there is an additional tick box
"Add original url to html files"
It is ticked by default.
Should this be unticked if uploading a downloaded site as I hope to do.
I have tried as you suggest but still external links remain in the form ../../../www.examplesite.com and so unusable. I have tried export and not export and Dreamweaver / Filezilla.
The site I am downloading is www.juniorscience.ie. It is based on a cms: which may be the difficulty?
Thanks for your help.
Can you redownload the first page to see what happens?
All now working fine.
Problem was related to some other download settings combined with the translation issue
If download site only with translation works well.
Great to get timely support
All the best
