I just wanted to know whether web pages designed in Microsoft Publisher are OK to upload to proz? I know that Microsoft FrontPage is problematic - so just wondering about Publisher...

interested Mar 8, 2006

I'm also interested to know as I've almost finished my website using Publisher and would like to know if it's easy to upload it .

Hopefully someone who has done that before can tell us.

My own page was done with Microsoft Publisher Mar 8, 2006

I used Publisher to create my site. I was very happy with how it ended up looking. However, once I published the *.pub file (to generate the *.htm files) , I could not quite get the FTP thing to work in order to upload my files to the ProZ server. I ended up uploading all the files, plus the images, manually, about 12 at a time. It was very tedious.

I think it had more to do with my particular computer, and others would have an easier time.

More on MS Publisher, IE yes, Mozilla no ?? May 18, 2006

After many trials, got as far as this:

1) Made mini-site with MS Publisher (MS Office 2003 Pro)
2) "Published" on PC harddisk
3) Installed FP extensions through CPanel (they are needed)
3) Upoloaded site subdirectory and index.htm using WS_FTP Light to "public.html"

It works with Internet Explorer
It does not work with Mozilla Firefox

Anyone knows better ?

Would be good if Jason could update his guide with instructions for MS Publisher

uninstalling Front page extensions through CPanel, now both IE and Firefox show the page, and it also is accessible from some parts of the ProZ site, but not from my homepage.
