    Thank goodness this tutorial says that you will have editing to do! I imported a page I did in word and it now has a lot of editing since importing to BV.

    Exclamation Importing existing HTML pages into BV

    BV's ability to import existing HTML pages directly from the Web is amazing (although I have no idea whether other web design programs can do the same). Two things that I think should be mentioned in the video tutorial:

    1) The URL you type into the "Import HTML Page" dialog box must begin with "http://". Yes, the tutorial shows those characters being typed in before "www.google.com" but it does not say they are REQUIRED in order for BV to import the page. I must have tried a dozen times or more to import various pages before "discovering" this requirement. Remember, it is now common to refer (both in writing and in conversation) to domains without the "http://" and even the "www."

    2) Many existing web pages are copyrighted works. This 'Import Existing HTML' tool makes it very easy for a VH customer to grab someone else's web page, tweak it any way they want to, and post it to any domain the customer controls. This of course would be a copyright violation for which the customer could be sued. There should be a warning in the tutorial, and maybe even in the tool itself when it's used, about copyright infringement.

    These enhancements to the video tutorial seem like they would be easy to make . . . and could save BV users a lot of time and trouble.

    Smart person! but you have to know that when you are doing a transfer you cannot use a copyright version. BV is a life of its own and as well any other. There are ways to transfer a domain that is established. And Im am sure that Vodahost will help you with that. But you cant use something that may be a infringement any where with in any host you go to.
    get your site together and know what the laws are there then relax here.....
    My opinion........

    Thanks, but please clarify what you mean by "when you are doing a transfer you cannot use a copyright version." If you mean cannot because it's illegal, then I agree. But I find when using BV's Import HTML Page tool that I am able to pull in copyrighted pages from some very well known sites. I'm not publishing them to any of my domains, of course, but it appears I could.

    Darlin' VH is not a law firm. If there is something you feel wrong. then look into it. otherwise settle down. Anyone can take someones pages ... I can take yours and use them as my own..... and that is the internet... If you want security then ask VH for to secure you content. and then you will have a secure area to work with...
    other wise why are you afraid>

    Thumbs up Re: How to Import an existing HTML page into BlueVoda

    Hi Nagraj . . . you are kind of asking two different questions here, so:

    1. To add HTML code to any BlueVoda (BV) page, watch this video: http://www.vodahost.com/vodatalk/add...a-webpage.html

    You should also watch this second video about adding HTML to a page:
    http://www.vodahost.com/vodatalk/add...web-pages.html

    2. To make files available for download from your site (read the post dated 2-15-07, 3:43 am):
    http://www.vodahost.com/vodatalk/blu...-download.html

    These videos say (and show) it better than I can!

    Hi! I've imported an existing HTML page from my own site into BlueVoda (because I accidentally deleted it from BlueVoda and wanted to restore it). I saved the page as a bvp page, and everything seemed OK, but when I tried to preview the page, it said: unexpected file format.
    I understand that I have to reformat the page, but how can I do it?
    I opened the HTML code, and I didn't find anything wrong with it. What should be reformatted?
    Please, any suggestion.
    Thank you.

    Yes if its embedded in the html. However... VB is microsoft software and most likely NOT compatible.

    My computer crashed and by trying to restore my pages from the website I have tried to follow suggestions, unfortunately I didn’t find anybody giving step by step importing website pages.

    When HTML box opened:

    1st - I copy and paste my website home page name
    2nd – I click on Import and enter index.html or other names, unfortunately with no result

    Can anybody suggest how far my stupidity go…?

    I have a blue voda host account and I have previously published a web site using blue voda, except now I have used a different program to totally redesign the site, and I can't transfer the pages properly to blue voda to be published on the net. (None of the text or menus come up, just the background and a few pictures).... any suggestions? also i upgraded the blue voda program and now i cant access the ip address assigned to me.

    I originally created my website with MS Publisher but I am recreating the site with Blue Voda. I had hoped to transfer most of the existing content but this is not so easy as MS Publisher. as many of you would know, uses a proprietry code called VML. Some of my site elements will import but many won't. Any tips from those who know? BTW the reason I am converting is that about 40% of users can't view my site with Mozilla Firefox. It's got worse with IE 8 and I can't even view my site.
