The finished Web site
Ah, youre done at last! (Well, at least youre under the temporary delusion that youre done. As Url says, Web site work is never done.) Check every link, and make sure every page has a link back to the home page, and perhaps even links to the other pages in your small site. The next step will be to upload the site to the World Wide Web. (For information on how to find a host for your site, see page 229 of The Little iMac Book, Second Edition.)
Upload your Web site
So now you are ready to upload your fabulous Web site.
Open the site: From the File menu, choose Open, then choose Open Site... . Youll get the Open dialog box, where you need to select your Web site folder and click the Choose button.
Create the settings: Youll get a message that you need to create site settings. Click Yes.
In the New Site dialog box that youll get, click Settings... .
In the Add Site Settings dialog box, enter the FTP information that you got from your Web site host. Then click OK (you wont have to do this again). In the New Site dialog box that youll see again, click Create.
Youll get something called a site window (shown below). You really should read the manual to learn about this very important part of the software. For now, go to the Site menu and choose Upload. PageMill will log on to the Internet and upload your Web site to the server. If PageMill has trouble connecting, open the connection your usual way, then tell PageMill to upload the site. And now, its on the Web!
Open your browser and go to the Web address that your host told you would be your address. If you see changes that need to be made: Make them in PageMill, and save the page. From the File menu, choose Upload and then Page. In your browser, click the Reload button to see the new page.
To upload the entire site, along with every graphic, use the Site menu and choose Upload.
To upload individual pages, along with their graphics, use the File menu, choose Upload and choose Page.
