Browse and Editing

There is an important difference between AOLpress and other Web browsers. AOLpress is an editor and a browser. The editing and formatting features are not available in other Web browsers.

Because we integrate editing and browsing, you can integrate reading and editing. If you are browsing (reading) a page on a directory on the Web where you have permission to change pages, you can correct an error that you see and republish the page.

You can copy material from pages you are browsing--text, images, hyperlinks, full URLs--and paste them into a page that you are authoring.

If you are just getting started creating Web pages, you might want to review the glossary so that you will understand the terms used in this help system.

Pages and MiniWebs

AOLpress uses two kinds of windows: Page windows and MiniWeb windows. You use Page windows to browse and author individual Web pages, and you use MiniWeb windows to work on a collections of related pages. When AOLpress starts, by default, you see a Page window. Page windows and MiniWeb windows have different menus and commands.

You can open many Page windows and MiniWeb windows. The number is limited by the amount of memory on your machine. Each page window has its own history.

Publishing to the Web

AOLpress can be used to publish to PrimeHost, to AOL's member space (, or to any AOLserver. When you are ready for the rest of the world to see your pages, just connect to the Internet and save the files in your publishing space.

See the tutorial lesson on publishing to the Web for a hands-on example.

AOLpress can also be used without any of these services to browse the Web and develop Web pages.

If you want to publish to a Web server other than the PrimeHost hosting service or an AOLserver, you can only save them directly if the Web server supports the HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol) PUT protocol. (Several other servers also support the PUT protocol, but disable it by default.) Otherwise, you will need to use ftp or some other file transfer method to move your files to the server.
