[Pro] sending sample files to client

In order to send a sample of a page to a client via e-mail, it seems like I have to send the “resources” file along with it, otherwise images don’t show up–broken links and the CSS menu doesn’t show. Do I preview the page in the browser, save it and then stuff that along with the “resources” folder? There must be an easier way. This client is local so I could visit and take a thumb drive with me, but for non-local there has to be a simple electronic way. Thanks for the help on this simple request in advance.

I did a screen shot and answered my own question…for now. I don’t have
fancy actions that need to be reviewed “live” at this point. thanks, C.

Hi Carol,
There are several ways to do what you are after although the easiest has to be to upload your site design to a public server somewhere and then email the link to your client. If you’ve got your own web space then create a new directory (either using Freeway or an FTP application) and upload into here. For extra bonus points you can secure the directory with a password using your hosting provider’s control panel or prevent search engines from finding this content.

If you don’t have your own server space then consider uploading the site to Dropbox (link below*). You get 2GBs of storage for free and can share regular HTML sites very easily.
Regards,
Tim.
