Step Six - Zip and Upload
Now that your design is complete, all files (graphics, CSS, HTML, thumbnails ... etc.) should be archived in a ZIP format to upload. Organize your files inside a folder on your computer (see notes on "files, directories and paths" under step 2 above), then right-click (Control-click on Mac OS X) and choose the appropriate archive option to make a .ZIP archive. The name of your zip file will become the name of your design.
Next, login to your website, go to Design and look for the "upload your own" link on the left hand side of the Design Editor. Follow the onscreen instructions to upload your design.
Making Changes to Your Design
Should you need to make changes to your design, you have three options:
You can access and edit your design files via FTP. This is the most common and convenient method and it allows you to work on your designs live on our server using the tools you are most comfortable with. For more information and instructions on connecting via FTP, please see our FTP page.
Changes to the HTML, CSS, INC and JS files in your design can be made inside our software. Click on the Website toggle switch -> Design -> mouse over your design -> click the options menu gear icon in the top right of the template thumbnail and choose "Edit Source." This will launch the Source Editor and will allow you to edit and save your HTML, CSS, INC, and JS files.
You can also make changes to your design files outside of our system, re-zip your files and re-upload. As long as your zip file is named exactly the same thing, your new design will replace your old design.
Design Template Version Tracking and Archiving
Our system is equipped with version tracking and archiving for all design template files. Every time you save changes to an HTML, CSS, INC or JS file in your design templates, the system stores the file in that version. All versions are stored for 30 days for all websites. On paid websites, we also store the most recent three versions indefinitely. Versions are created whenever you save changes through our built-in editing interface or via FTP. However, if you want to revert to a previous version, you will have to use the built in editing interface to access the saved versions.
