It takes 10+ hrs to create a website from my database using Roots Magic 6.
I'm told that the HTML choice offered by RM will no longer be supported. They have instead included a utility in RM6 called Publish Online. Users can create files and upload them to a Roots Magic website.
So, I tried doing that and it took about the same amount of time as the other HTML utility. I made the "mistake" of wanting to view the pages with my Chrome browser from the folders they were created in on my harddrive but, guess what? I can't!
One of the forum moderators tells me that my Chrome browser has some "quirk" that prevents me from viewing them. But, those "quirks" haven't yet been defined for me so I don't know how to correct them or, even if I can.
OK! So, I fire up IE10 and guess what!? I can't view them in that browser either.
Now, I decide to upload them to the RM site so I can at least view them there. Guess what? I cannot upload them without creating them all over again. There are no options in RM6 which allow uploading once you close the utility that creates the webpages.
I'm not really interested in uploading those files to the RM website! What I am interested in doing is viewing the files in any browser and then burn them to DVD.
Apparently, I cannot do that.
Oh yeah, I know: there's share a disk or somesuch name like that. But, that's not what I want either!
