In this course, author James Fritz shows how to create HTML-based websites with Muse—a toolset familiar to anyone who has used Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, or Illustrator. The course covers the design process from start to finish, from setting up web pages and populating them with graphics and text, to creating dynamic menus and adding special features such as widgets, slideshows, animations, embedded video, social media integration, and more. James also explains how to create an alternate layout for display on mobile devices, publish and update your site, and view analytics on web traffic.
In order for your website to live online, you have to place it with a host. Now, if you have your own host other than Adobe Business Catalyst, you can use the built-in FTP program to upload all the necessary files. If you want to use your own FTP client, you can always go to File > Export and just export the code yourself and upload it yourself. But if you have the client information for your own host, it's a lot easier to use the built-in FTP client inside Muse. To do that, we're just going to go to File > Upload to FTP Host. Because I've used Muse before to upload to a website, it's asking me if I want to use the information I've already entered. In this case, I'm going to say Allow.
If you've already entered information here, it will remember it for future use. The first location is the domain itself. This is where you want to enter the address where this is going to live. Next, you need to put in the FTP information. If you don't have this information, you're going to want to talk to your host, and they'll be able to give it to you. The host directory is the folder where your files will be uploaded. If you have a specific location, you're going to want to enter that. Otherwise, it will be placed in the root directory. The Login is your username and the Password is your password. And finally, you can choose if you want to upload all of the files to your host or just the modified files, because if you've only made a few text-based changes or something small, it's a lot faster to only upload the modified files.
In my case, I've only made a few small changes. So I'm going to choose Only Modified Files. Then I'll click OK. I'll allow it to use my credentials, and then we'll watch the progress bar after it's uploaded. Finally, when the site is finished loading, it will show up in your web browser, and you can take a look at it. You might have to refresh your web browser to see the latest version. Uploading to an FTP client is very easy with Muse. Keep in mind that if you give your Muse file to someone else, your username and password will not be included with the .muse file. They will need a login and password for themselves in order to upload your content.
