iWeb and old Front Page pages (2 posts)

    I have a website previously published with Front Page. I want to add some pages created in iWeb. Is this possible? I have uploaded them and they show up in the Fetch directory, but I cannot get to them in my browser. Site is www.olson.net. I do not want to change my current index.html file if I don't have to.

    Hi,

    You can see the new pages without modifying your index.html file, but it won't be convenient to use.

    If you do not add links to the new files to your index.html file (or another existing webpage), the only way to see your new pages would be to type the name of the new files after your website's address.

    For example, if you put the new iWeb pages in a folder named "newpages" and you uploaded that folder to your website, you'd have to type:

    http://www.olson.net/newpages/

    to get the web browser to show them. Or if you did not put them in a folder, you'd have to type the name of one of the new pages, like:

    http://www.olson.net/newpage.html

    And you'd have to tell anyone who you wanted to see those page to type in that address. (You can try this by typing in the address of the folder or one of the new pages you uploaded.)

    To allow you, or visitors to your website, to see the new webpages by just typing www.olson.net and then following links, you must modify one of your existing pages to have a link to the new pages.

    I hope this helps clarify things,
