Site Transfer

Threaded View
Last year I had a site that for which I wrote most of the HTML. It was
a simple site for a fantasy football league. I used Charter to host
it. Now I can't remember how to use an FTP client (don't laugh
it's been a year and I tried a couple different ones) to upload my
files. Of course Charter is no help even though they recommend a
couple of FTP softwares. I decided to use Host Gator this year because
it has a built in file manager.

I uploaded my old index.html file and when I went to the website
there it was in text. I know that I have to change the ref lines but
wouldn't the background and text display if they were common fonts
and colors? Would anyone tell me what I need to scour the index.html
file for in order for it to display? Thank you.

You can use IE as an ftp client. Just type
into the address bit.

A link to it would be nice. ;)

Thanks Jafar. I'm not having problems uploading now.

The link is

The files are not where the refs point to anymore because like I said
I've moved everything since then.

Thanks again.

I think I've found the root of the problem. Somehow when creating the page
(header name Microsoft Office) the software has converted each html tag into
< and > with the result that the "output" version of the page displays
as html code. What makes it so is quite different - a huge number of <span>
tags defining each line of the "code".

Just do a view-source and you will see what I mean.

If you copy and paste what you see in your browser (not the view-source) and
than paste it into notepad then save it - that should display. Of course you
may need to do other things like making sure it validates, etc.

I have done just this and uploaded the result here: - feel free to save that file
but be warned (google archives, etc.) it will not be there forever.

HINT: change the backslashes in the link URLs into forward slashes!

Thank you Amos. I visited the page and downloaded it. I'll give the
copy and paste thing a shot. I appreciate your time.

I stopped using MS Office for this. I used Wordpad. I've still got
some tinkering to change colors, etc. but I think I'm headed in the
right direction. I might give Mozilla Composer a shot though.

Thanks again for your help.
