I used Mobilrise to create a page. Any insight on how to upload the page to my Homestead site?

What are the files saved as? You should be able to upload them directly into the File Manager if you are working inside of Sitebuilder.

I was able to manually import all the files, but because the "project" is saved as a collection of multiple folders/files, Mobilrise suggests using FileZilla or something like that to import them all.  I'm not really familiar with FileZilla, hence my asking.  But yes, I was able to manually rebuild all the folders/files and it worked fine.  Another way is to send directly to FTP.  Not even sure if the Homestead sites have an FTP or how that would work.  But if they do and I could get that info, I can just plug it into Mobilerise.  That is another way to do it.

I import the html page.  That's easy.  It's all the images and code files so the page does what it's supposed to, etc... that also need to be imported.

Unfortunately Homestead does not operate FTP servers. Filezilla is a very nice, simple to use, FTP client, but since we don't have FTP, it can't be used. The file manager is the only method to upload.

HI Drew, 

Where can one find the "file Manager" tool? I cannot find it in my sitebuilder. It used to be under the menu in the top-right and/or on the Manage Sites page. However, I cannot find it anywhere. 

I built my own site and am looking to upload all the HTML assets directly.

Michael Which site? The newer Websitebuilder sites do not have a file manager. This applies to Sitebuilder sites.

This is a Websitebuilder site. There is no file manager to upload the site. I can convert it to Sitebuilder so you can upload via the file manager. It will delete anything you have done on this site so far.

HA! Done. Didn't realize it was you. You can get to Sitebuilder Plus on that site now.

Everything is great. Hope all is well with you too.
