Hi there! So I know nothing about RapidWeaver or building a site in general really, but I’m trying to make changes to my boss’s website and his former assistant’s notes aren’t helping. First I make changes directly in RapidWeaver to the page I want to change and then hit publish. When I visit the website, it does not reflect the changes I made.
Then I tried, in Chrome, to follow the former assistant’s instructions (below), but still the changes are not reflected.
• Open FTP client
• once logged in open the public_html file
• drag and drop the necessary files from the folder that has the most recent version of the website into the public_html window of the ftp client
• go to website, refresh page, see if changes were made
When I do this, the page that I’ve changed in RapidWeaver appears in Chrome with the changes, but that’s because it’s linking to the file on my desktop. The changes are not reflected when I visit the site. Maybe I’m not dragging the right file? I’m making changes to his “speaking” page, so the file I’ve been dragging over to the FTP client is the speaking.html file.
I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong, and I’m hoping someone has the knowledge to help me. Thanks!
