Publishing pages question (3 posts)

    I used Fetch years ago and do not remember a whole lot. To publish pages, you drag or Put them into the Fetch window, and then what, they are automatically active? I am designing the pages with Nvu. This program has a Publish button, but I don't know what happens when I click that, since I am working on one page at a time. Appreciate any help, I don't want to screw up this website.

    Yes, once you use Fetch to upload your webpages to your server (either by dragging or using the Put button), they are "live" as soon as the upload finishes.

    (Some hosting companies require you to activate your webpage before any updates will occur, but that isn't common, and if you already have a webpage up and running, it shouldn't be an issue.)

    The Nvu Publish button isn't related to and doesn't interact with Fetch in any way; I am not familiar with Nvu so I cannot tell you what it does do.

    If you want to refresh your memory on how Fetch works otherwise, you may want to look at our introductory Fetch tutorial.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.
