I have deleted documents from the website builder, but they are still - very annoyingly - showing on the published site! I am on the basic sitebuilder, so where do I find File Manager?

Hello,

WebsiteBuilder does not have a file manager like sitebuilder plus but you can delete any uploaded documents under elements>files>document.  When I compare the site to what I see in the editor it seems to match up with the published version. What documents are still showing on the published site that were removed?

I have uploaded a story in 5 parts, with a page background colour of peach. When I link them the parts flow through from 1 to 5. However, if you go back to Part 1 from any other part, there is no background colour and the document is different.  The file should be Behind The Mask1, but instead it is an old file Behind The Mask1(w). Does this make sense because it is driving me crazy!! The original file Behind The Mask1(w) has been completely removed from my computer!

All the files for Behind The Mask have been deleted from my Elements file section, so why is it, when I got into preview, they still appear? I don't want to upgrade to sitebuilder plus. This is not a business, this is purely for pleasure. If Homestead cant do what I want it to do, then I will cancel my subscription!

For what you are attempting to achieve you would want to add each part as its own individual page. When I test the behind the mask link I see that is it attempting to link to a .htm file which unfortunately cannot be used as they were able to be with sitebuilder. The easiest option would be to copy and paste the story's parts into a text box in the builder.

Thanks for your reply. Whilst I am disappointed that I can no longer do what I did on Homestead about 10 years ago, I'm glad it wasn't me being just stupid! However, when I change my documents to Web page format and upload them, why do they not open in a new window straight away from the link on the Web page?

Also, how do I change the colour of a followed link in Websitebuilder?

No problem, with WebsiteBuilder it does not read uploaded web pages as web pages. They will need to be built in the editor to be recognized by the proprietary software. The builder does not open links in a new window by default. When you are linking to a document, you can check mark the option to open in a new tab. 

Unfortunately, visited text links do not change colors. The text will always remain the same color.

Thank you for your reply. However, it's very disappointing to discover that the 'new' Homestead site doesn't do the things the old one did! Sometimes 'new' is not an improvement.

You're welcome. Definitely understandable I can send some feed back to the engineers.
