I have been creating a website for almost 20 years. For the last several years, I’ve used Freeway Pro which is no longer supported. My site has many pages which I do not wish to change or update. What I would like to do is use RapidWeaver 7 to create new versions of a few pages, including the home page (index.html), and simply use links (in a site-index page that I would create in RW) to the other unchanged pages. It would be virtually impossible to re-create the entire site in RW.
My question is whether it is possible to use RW to publish only the newly created pages to my server without erasing the rest of the page files on my server. So, for example, if I create a home page, an introduction page (introduction.html) and a siteindex page (siteindex.html) and publish that material in RW to my server, overwriting previous pages with those names, will I be erasing the other existing page files or otherwise messing up the current site?
If using the publishing feature of RW 7 wouldn’t do what I’d like, would an alternative be to export the pages created in RW (along with other files exported by RW) to my computer and then simply FTP those files via an FTP app such as Transmit to my site server?
Any thoughts or suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated.
