I need help in adapting an old html page to my current website. This page is an extensively formatted legal memorandum originally published on one of my old websites designed with Microsoft Frontpage html in 2005. I wrote it in Microsoft Word in accordance with the Bluebook Uniform Code of Legal Citation. That means it is filled with underlines, italicisms, symbols, indented quotes, and footnotes. That’s what most of the internal links are — superscript numbers linked to footnotes, etc. Anyway, the page still opens up fine in any browser with the text formatting and internal page links intact and working perfectly. Of course what does not work are the navigation inks in the sidebar related to the theme used. That is a minor concern though, because if I cannot find a way to delete those links, I can just write a little note saying to ignore them.
So far I am able to get a pdf version of the html page embedded on the new page with a nice little css formula I gratefully discovered in this forum. The internal links do not work of course, but at least it makes the document available. I would really like to find a way to get the old code to work so that the internal page links work. Plus, the keywords generated will bring more folks to the site.
I’ve done the following in an effort to fix the problem to no avail:
I just inserted the html stack and followed the instructions to eliminate the top html, head, and body tags. That did not work.
Then I cut and pasted all the code in there. That did not work either.
Finally, I created a button with a link to the old html document and made sure the resource was linked. The text appears in the edit portion of the stack, but it does not preview.
I was thinking about hiring someone on Fiverr to do it for about $5-$10. But I don’t know if just any old css/html will work or if I could trust anyone. So any ideas on what to do? In case it matters, I’m working in RW7 with the Michael David Capture theme. And as stated earlier, I’m not a developer. Though I recently viewed a “crash course” video on CSS and html so I understand it a little better and successfully made some minor modifications to the theme on my own. (Yea!)
I tried to upload the original file as html but it was not accepted. So you can view it as currently published on my old site that will soon be replaced by the new one I am working on. Just click the little blue .pdf link on the page as indicated and use developer tools to view the source code. Thanks!
