However, I figured out a way of how teachers are able to take their webpage from Expressions Web and convert it into a Google Site.
Here are the directions:
- Go to the computer that has Web Expressions on it.
- Click on 'File' and 'Open'
- Browse for the index.html file in the www_pub folder
- The index.html file will be displayed on your screen.
- Click on 'Panels' on the menu bar.
- Toward the bottom of the screen, about half way down, click on the 'Compatibility' tab
- Click on 'Code' to display the html code for the webpage.
- Select all the text by performing a 'CTRL + A' on the keyboard.
- Copy the highlighted text by performing a 'CTRL + C' on the keyboard.
- Login to your Google Account
- Click on the Apps Launcher and select 'Sites'
- Click on 'Create'
- Select 'Blank Template'
- Give your website a name, for example: Mrs. Mattina, 6th Gr ELA
- Select a theme
- Click on 'Create' to create the website
- Once completed, the site will be displayed.
- Select the 'Edit' button to edit the page, as shown below.
10. Click on 'HTML' on the tool bar
11. Paste the HTML code by performing a 'CTRL + V' on the keyboard.
12. If you receive a message about the HTML content will be modified, click 'ok'
13. All of the HTML code should appear on your screen.
At this point, you can create pages, include navigation, a sitemap, a header, and much more.
I would recommend the following for your page settings:
- disable the page title option
- disable the show links to sub-pages option
- disable allow attachments option
- disable allow comments option
That's it! You just converted your webpage from Expressions Web into a website using Google Sites.
