Understanding and resolving Microsoft Problems while Uploading a Microsoft Publisher Website
· Saving the Website
Microsoft Publisher, when saving a new website, does so in parts and elements which later becomes a picture. And as such, it is necessary that you organize the same for them to upload to the hosting server.
Additionally, also make sure that the default option is selected from the “Web page options” menu for it enables saving complete HTML pages and page elements in a separate organizing folder.
· Images and Flash Movies
If in case you still haven’t uploaded all of your images for the site, there is a very good chance that the pictures won’t show up on your final website. So, considering this, try and upload all of the images together in the folder that the Publisher creates as the HTML coding will add references to the same.
If a particular image doesn’t display while all others do, search for it in the page’s properties. You need to then right click to select “View Page Info” or click “Tools” then “Page Info” and “Media” from the browser toolbar for the same missing images and sounds. Make sure that your file names don’t contain invalid characters or spaces.
Flash movies will play correctly if you save them in the website’s main directory.
· Centering the Page
In centering the pages for your site, open the web page in a text editor. Now locate the first body and then tag this line of code:
<table border=”0″ cellpadding=”0″ cellspacing=”2″ width=”780″ align=”center”>
And before the closing body tag or </body>, add:
Finally, save the document.
(NOTE: This will center only individual pages, so you’ll need to do it for each page)
So once you have successfully completed these steps, the problems and issues with your website will be no more.
