if the site you have linked to is your own then why not create a client folder yoursite.com/client and publish into that

this sample site is not liked as of yet… but that is a great
idea… I have the “skeleton sample site” make in freeway so how do i
link it to mine to do exactly what you are saying… just have the
client go under the client page and click on the link… perfect…

When you set up your document in Freeway you set your upload path ie. server: www.yoursite.com and directory:/public_html/client or whatever naming convention is used on your server space.

This is then a path to yoursite.com/client

In the FW document with the 1st page of your sample site named as index.html on upload your site will be published to www.yoursite.com/client/index.html

Now if you are planning on doing this for several clients then you can create the directory path:/public_html/clients/client1, … /public_html/clients/client2,

If you don’t mind, I’d like to give you a few tips about the construction of www.grdesigns.net:

The positioning of the masthead(header) graphics is inconsistent and jumps out of position on a couple of pages. Also the same text graphics have inherited an underline on the Contact page! :slight_smile: To get absolute consistency delete all of the header graphics on each page and recreate them once only on Master 1 (at the top of your page list on the left). This should then give each page on the site exactly the same header graphics. As an extra safeguard, when you have put the graphics on the Master page, lock them in position. That will prevent any of the elements being moved accidentally when working on the rest of the page.

Next, the site has different length pages, which is not necessarily a bad thing except that if the page is deeper than the viewable area in a browser, the browser will create a vertical scroll bar on the right. This will have the effect of making the site look as though it’s ‘jumped’ to the left slightly if you’re navigating from a page where no scroll bar has been present. The quick fix would be to make all of the pages the same length, no matter what content there is but it’s always good practice not to make your pages too deep for the average browser, unless it’s unavoidable. Freeway has a list of default page sizes that you can use when creating a new document. My personal preference is 800 x 600 pixels as a starting point.

Finally, I don’t know if it’s important to you that the site can be found on search engines. As it stands almost all of the copy is in graphical form and this will be ignored by the bots. I understand what look you’re attempting to achieve but the use of HTML text will improve your site’s visibility for sure. On the home page, try using Times New Roman Italic in HTML, instead of what you have used already. The About Us page is important in terms of what keywords it might contain, so have another think about the information and the possibilites of using an HTML text font. You can still use the same colours and styling, so not everything would be lost!

Yes, just like Dave said. I do it all the time.

Sorry Julie - I wasn’t ignoring you.

It was the middle of the night over here.

As Paul says it is pretty standard practice.

And when they have their own domain then all you need to do is change the details for upload

server: www.theirsite.com and directory:/public_html/

With the correct username and password of course.

client page of www.grdesigns.net ? because i would need a link on that
page for them to open… sorry this is new to me… or do i upload to
that directly… but what do i put on the upload path window to do
that… but yet i would still need a link on the client page for them
to click on… or is the page the sample site… sorry for rattling
just trying to understand… and get this right

Hi Julie

Sorry for the long wait for a reply; been away for the weekend. Yes, I have a life :slight_smile:

With regard to your header graphics, use both the background image and ALL of the overlaid type. I suggest that you select them all and ‘Combine Graphics’ via the inspector palette and as I previously suggested, lock them all in position on the Master page. What you must do, though, is delete the existing graphics on each page first, otherwise there’s a danger of repeated items, created from the Master, being overlaid on every page. This gets really messy and can ruin your day trying to sort it all out.

ok… the picture … i can not select because it is on the “page” and
placed top center. so I will not do that… but put it as a background…
ok Il try that

I am glad you do have a life… or actual work to go to,., that is why
it is taking me so long to make these corrections and work on that
sample website attached to my website… which i still dont
understand how to do. I need hand holding with that one.

It sounds as though you have one folder too many there Julie. What you
need is one sub folder called, say ‘client’ just inside your root
folder. So your site path would be public_html/client/

Then set Freeway to upload to that folder.
