Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Technical considerations, part of Designing a Portfolio Website with Muse.
- [Instructor] This course is meant for creatives, and I've done my best to steer clear of code, and keep the course design-focused. But with web publishing, things don't always go as smoothly as we would like. In the case of Muse, there is one such occasion I'd like to draw your attention to. Some web service providers don't play well with SVG, or scalable vector graphic files. When I was developing the material for this course, my pages looked great locally, but when I uploaded the files via FTP, and visited the site, the SVG files on the page wouldn't load.
This happens because the server is providing the browser with an incorrect content type. The fix is fairly straightforward, but may leave your head spinning, if you're not a seasoned web designer. My advice is, if you notice this issue, call your web host and talk with tech support. They should be able to sort out the issue, if you can't figure it out yourself.
