editing web pages.

How do I connect to a web page and edit it? I connect to the web site home page and change some of the information but it does not change anything when you go back to the page. It says publishing but it does not change it.

The publishing module does not work with many servers. Most people use an FTP program to publish their sites and updates.

If you don't have a local copy of your site download the entire site to a folder on your computer. Do your updates to the local copy and then upload the updated pages to your server.

This also serves as a current backup of your site so it is not wasted effort.

Also, it's sometimes necessary to refresh the page to see any new uploads.
See the link below for FTP programs.
