Cant find images

Post by pacstar » Wed Nov 14, 2018 9:07 pm

Hi,

I just install WWB yesterday and I'm still fumbling through it. So I can use any assistance and advice. I have multiple websites that point back to each other. the main site is pacificcoastcruisers.com . I have been publishing it for many years on F***t**ge, and it felt like WWB would be a similar platform. I have a lot to rebuild, (over a thousand pages) and products.


First when I click on image > image from file, nothing happens. Where is the image file, and why isn't it allowing me to browse to find it.


Second, I could really use some help with recreating my current page style, and if anyone could help me make that theme for a "masterpage" that would be awesome. Or would it be easiest to pull the html code from my existing site and re build it. Currently I'm working on the smallest site ( pacificcoasttriumph.com ) to get a grasp of WWB before I move to the larger sites.


Thanks in advance

To insert an image:
- select the 'Insert image' tool
- draw a box where the image should be displayed
- select the image

OR

- Drag & drop the image tool from the toolbox to the page.

To add a image you have to drag'n'drop the Image Object to the work space then you will be able to select your image.

You cannot just grab the HTML from your previous site and drop in the software. WYSIWYG Web Builder is not a HTML Editor but a HTML Generator (A Visual Design) meaning there us no code until published. With that said you can use the HTML Import feature to bring your pages into the software see the following:

You can read more on Master Frames, Master Pages, and Embedded Pages at the following tutorials:

Thanks! that's what I was missing, I kept clicking on it and nothing happened.

So, next I grabbed my "image" folder with all of my current web site images in it to the WWB web I'm working on, so all of my current images are in there. So as I add new images in the future, I assume I will be able to continue to save them in that folder / sub folder.

Yeah, I got that, I was able to import the html but there certainly would be a lot to make them work doing that.

Thanks for the help with the Masterpages I will look at them, and hopefully that will get me going.

Once again, any suggestions or help is appreciated.

When I go to Page Properties > Miscellaneous then select "master-page" to apply it to the Master Page Type, it tells me " This page can not be selected" Please select another page!"
How can I fix this? I'm getting the same error with master_frame also


Thanks

You cannot the page itself as the master page, you will need to select another page.
