What's the diff. between FrontPage & Publisher?

by qybosh / March 11, 2006 2:30 AM PST

Anyone here tried publishing a website thru Publisher b4? I've tracked down a few free site that provide free hosting + domain and they support FrontPage. And since FrontPage is for Web creation and from Windows..that's about all I see the similarities.. Sad

So I like to know can I use these hosters since they support FrontPage....coz till now I've not come accross any that support Publisher...so what's the difference between the two anyway...

Pls anyone who've published thru Publisher b4, or anyone who can share...

APlus.net and via usa host publisher created sites, or more specifically the following link: http://wdu.aplus.net/mspage2/aplus.htm, this was on microsoft office online marketplace which can be accessed by clicking on the globe on the left of the popup toolbar that appears in publisher and then following the link to office online marketplace.

Good luck with your site,

To publish your site......
by qnuspp / March 11, 2006 6:33 PM PST

In publisher you need to open your website, then click file, save as, then in the "save as type" drop down box select web page. Find a location to save your site and click save.

You now need to find an ftp uploader, some are free or you may have been given one by your webhost. Using the ftp uploader you need to enter your ftp settings (which you can get from your webhost) and then locate your website that you saved earlier. Then click upload and transfer the files to your webspace.

If you require any more information/help just reply.

Hope this helps!

Hey! Thanks for the tips...yup I've done as advise Happy
''In publisher you need to open your website, then click file, save as, then in the ''save as type'' drop down box select web page. Find a location to save your site and click save.''

...and now I'm locating an ftp uploader...

Sidetrack a little..

FTP Server: *abcde.*1234host.com (ftp//abcde.1234host.com@abcde.1234host.com)<-- the hyperlink
FTP Login: abcde.1234host.com
FTP PassWord: ghijklm
* = example

Is that what you meant by my ''ftp settings by webhost'' (the info above)which u mentioned earlier...or the info INSIDE the ftp server hyperlink, of which I must access? What if I cannot seem to access its FTF Server even with the correct username and password. (Already contacted them but still waiting).....so I'd wish to learn will it be impossible to upload (presuming after I've got an FTP uploader installed) when I cannot login to the ftp server?

If you cannot log in on your ftp server......

Then your web host may have an online file uploader.

Although this would be slow as you would have to create all the directories (folders) yourself then upload the correct files to them.

Try entering the ftp address in your web browser to check that its not just your ftp uploader.

If that dosnt work, im afraid you will have to wait for a reply from your host.
