    I have created a picture heavy 12 page website in Office Publisher. When I spoke to godaddy, prior to signing up for their service, they told me all I would need to do is upload through Filezilla and all would be good. Well its not. Now they say I have to convert it to a .pub file to .html file and can't help me on how to do it. HOW DO I DO THIS??? I can't seem to find it anywhere. PLEASE HELP!! They sent me the following message:

    Thank you for contacting Online Support. I understand you are concerned about publishing the website. Reviewing the account, I am showing no valid default file name being uploaded. You will need to save the site within a valid format for the hosting to display it automatically. I would recommend to complete a search using your favorite search engine to locate information on saving the site within a valid format for the hosting plan. If you have more than one default file in a directory, the server decides which one takes priority, and then displays that file. Understanding the order the files are served is key to making sure the correct page displays on your website.

    Default File Names and Order of Precedence - Linux




    This is the order of precedence for the default files on your Linux Standard account:



      1. default.html


      1. default.htm


      1. index.php


      1. index.html


      1. index.shtml


      1. index.htm


      1. home.html


      1. home.htm


      1. index.php5


      1. welcome.html


      1. welcome.htm



    NOTE: Linux hosting file structure is case sensitive.

    Attached are the first two pages of the website to give you an idea of the content load, 12 pages total.
    I need help:
    Transferring these files from Publisher to my webpage hosted with godaddy.com
    I was told that they needed to be html files
    1. How do I make them html files?
    2. Does each page need to be its own html file or can I load all 12 as one html file?

    Truthfully, I recommend hiring a website developer to build the website for you. It seems to be a simple project, so it shouldn't cost too much. I "real" website would go a lot further than pdf files.

    You can't simply change the file extension to .html. But, I my have a temporary solution.

    Create a file named index.php. Inside of that file, insert this code:

    PHP Code:
    <?php

    header
    ('location:INSERT_FILENAME_HERE');

    ?>
    Where the code says INSERT_FILENAME_HERE, type in the path the the home page.

    Example:

    If your home page is called home.pdf AND that file is located in the root directory, you would use the code:

    PHP Code:
    <?php

    header
    ('location:home.pdf');

    ?>
    If your home page is located in a sub-folder, just add the folder names in front of home.pdf:

    PHP Code:
    <?php

    header
    ('location:sub-folder/home.pdf');

    ?>
    That will allow you to use pdf files as your website.

    To be honest, I don't have any idea how to convert a Publisher file to HTML.
    You could go HERE to find some help, though.
