Learning the Basics

Saving a page to your computer

There are several ways you can save files with AOLpress:

  • You can save files to your local hard drive.
  • You can save files directly to the Web if you have access to an AOLserver. (In addition, some other Web servers also support saving files with HTTP.)
  • You can save files to other servers with FTP.

In this section we'll cover saving to your own computer (sometimes called "saving locally"). In the next section, we'll talk about ways to "publish" your pages to the Web (also called "saving remotely").

You've already saved the changes you made to the previous page in this workbook. Now you can try saving this page to another location on your computer.

   Try it now:
  1. Choose FileNewNew Page. You will see a new page.
  2. Type your name and any other text you like in this new page.
  3. With the new page active, choose FileSave As.
  4. You will see a window similar to the one you used to open a page.
  5. Choose another drive and/or directory on your computer where you want to save this page.
    • On a PC, you can select any of your drives by choosing from the Drives/Sites list.
    • On a Macintosh, you can move up to the Desktop if you want to select another drive.
  6. Then, type or select the name of the file. (It's best to use an extension of .htm if you are using a PC or may need to work on the page on a PC running Windows 3.1. Otherwise, you can use a file extension of .html.)
  7. Now click OK to save your file locally.
When you create Web sites, you can start out by creating and editing the pages on your own computer. Keep all the files in one directory, or in a directory and its subdirectories. When you are ready to publish your files to a server, this will make it easy to move files without breaking the links between them.

You can also save your pages in several formats other than as Web pages. In the "Save As" window, you can click the Options button to see this window:

For example, you might want to save a page as ordinary "Text" or in the "Rich Text Format" (so you can import it into Microsoft Word). We'll talk about other options in this window later.

For more information, see the chapter on creating and saving pages in the AOLpress User's Guide.
