Topic Summary
Posted by: Bruce E Posted on: Jul 13th, 2007, 7:16am
I am new at this so want to take things slowly.  I already have done a DVD with CDFrontEnd.  I want to publish this with 1Site.  I now know how to do this.  However, I do not want to publish to our server until I know I have done everything correctly.  What I would like to do is publish to either my own hard drive, or another one here at work and then view it like it was an internet site.  What I don't want to do is publish it with a bunch of mistakes.  
I know you can export as an html file.  Would this act exactly like what would be published on the internet?

File >Open
to open your CDFrontEnd file.
Publish >Browser preview >All hypertext in default browser
to see a preview of the thing without actually publishing on the Internet.
So you don't need to obtain "HTML", with the feature above the program will automatically do everything within a temporary folder and will run the browser, and you will be able to see a preview on your PC. Without being on the Internet.

WOW - Sounds great.  Looking forward to seeing what I have done.
Posted by: Bruce E Posted on: Jul 13th, 2007, 9:53am
Everything worked except the links I had in CDFrontEnd.  These links were to pdfs and avi movies.  Why did the links not work?
Posted by: Support Staff Posted on: Jul 13th, 2007, 10:12am
I guess they were links to external files on the CD.
There is no longer the CD.... so...
Fast solution: just replace them with embedded files link (Insert >Link then 4th tab).
Posted by: Bruce E Posted on: Jul 13th, 2007, 10:31am
I  have around 10 different videos I want to show.  I understood that with CDFrontEnd it was not recommended to embed large video files.  Is what you are suggesting embedding the files?  Is it OK with this many videos?
Posted by: Support Staff Posted on: Jul 13th, 2007, 10:35am
well if they are large, it is preferable that you upload them separately to your web site, then you place direct links to them.
example, you upload (with a FTP program or with the Generic FTP internal feature) the file video1.wmv to
then, to link this, you must hightlight a sentence, Insert >Link, 3rd tab, Add+, then you type the complete link such as:
this way your website file won't become too large (large = slow to load / save / publish ).

Great - You are being so patient with me.  
How do I go about playing a short 15 second video when they first click onto our website?  It would be an intro video clip.
Posted by: Support Staff Posted on: Jul 13th, 2007, 1:17pm
Do not do this. People hate to enter a website and be annoyed with a long video or animation. Not everybody has a fast DSL connection, and after the first visit, also people with a DSL will hate you (or visit another website).
Of course it is possible: place the video on the home page (cover; you may set up a cover page different from the present one with Hypertext >Current hypertext properties, then use the transparent Cover button) then set up a slide effect (15 seconds) that do move to the successive page (e.g. the current cover page).

Me again.
OK, I agree with your comment about the intro video.  I have a nice short video I did, I will use it else where.
Question - I need to publish the site, but the server is located in our building and I am connected to this computer via and internal net.  So do I need to go through all the items on the "Publish in Internet/INtranet (with FTP)" page?  If not, how do I publish to an in house server?
Thanks in advance.  You guys are the best.
Posted by: Support Staff Posted on: Jul 13th, 2007, 5:33pm
Even if your server is "in house", at 99.99% it should have a name and a FTP service installed and running.
The simplest thing is to use it (as the program is optimized for this), in other words you connect to it via normal FTP, just like you were in Australia (or in UK in case you live in Australia ). The fact that you are in the same building doesn't mind.
Your administrator should open, on that server, a FTP account reserved to you, and provide you servername, username and password , that you will use just like specified in the publishing tutorial.
If the server does not have a Internet domain name (such as it will have at least (this is mandatory so it will) a IP address that you can use in place of the servername, e.g. (this will work also on the browser, if you type these numbers you will see actually
