Upload existing web pages

You can upload HTML files to your site to share for download. You can't however upload web pages as individual HTML files. If your site will be the central home for this content, meaning you want to maintain that material directly within Sites, consider instead copying the HTML source from the desired files and creating new pages with it by pasting it into the HTML view of those pages.

You may copy and paste this content directly into Sites, either from the browser view or using HTML source. The browser method is faster but less reliable since you may miss entries in your selection. You can avoid this by selecting all but may then capture other elements you don't want. The HTML source method is more predictable but requires additional steps and poses the opposite risk of capturing navigation and other elements you don't need.

Note: Please note web content created in some applications containing non-standard HTML tags and entities may not transfer with its format intact.

To copy from the browser:

  1. Select the desired content by dragging your mouse and highlighting the text. (Images will not be copied.)
  2. Copy the selection to your clipboard.
  3. In Sites, open an existing page for editing or create a new one.
  4. Click within the page and paste your selection (via right-click or Ctrl-V).

To copy from the source:

  1. View the desired content in a browser and then view its source.
  2. Select the desired content from the source view by dragging your mouse and highlighting the text. Typically, you will want everything within the tags.
  3. Copy the selection to your clipboard.
  4. In Sites, open an existing page for editing or create a new one.
  5. Click the HTML icon to open Sites' source view.
  6. Click within the source view and paste your selection (via right-click or Ctrl-V), then click Update.

You may need to repair broken links and include missing images. Finally, delete the now-redundant original from which this content was copied.
