Getting Started With NetObjects Fusion

  1. What is a MasterBorder? What is a Layout Region?
  2. Can I use NetObjects Fusion to import entire sites?
    • It is exceptionally difficult to import an existing website for continued use and editing into NetObjects Fusion (or any other website generator). NetObjects Fusion is an HTML generator; the reason it's so shockingly easy to use is because it creates all of the code for you based on your WYSIWYG design. The Fusion file (.nod) is an object oriented database that stores the instructions for building your website; the website itself is only created when you publish it. There is no way to accurately reinterpret the published code back into the appropriate database field.
    • The best way to proceed is to create a new site and copy and paste content from the online site into a new site. You must paste the copied text as "unformatted text" so the style of the new site will not conflict with the formatting of the original content.
  3. How do I lay out pages in NetObjects Fusion?
    • NetObjects Fusion lets you build pages any way you want. You can:
      • Drag and drop to lay out pages in graphic mode, with WYSIWYG, pixel-perfect positioning.
      • Use text mode like a word processor, with carriage returns and other textual page-creation tools, when ultra lean HTML is a top priority.
      • Use tables or divs for precise presentation of content and control over HTML.
  4. What features in NetObjects Fusion make it easy to build sites?
    • Our Site Wizard makes building your first Web site a simple 3-step process. Other easy-to-follow wizards guide you through the process of connecting your site with your databases, letting you dynamically deliver up-to-the-minute information, collect information from site visitors, and take advantage of e-commerce.
  5. Do I need to know HTML or code to use NetObjects Fusion?
    • No. NetObjects Fusion® generates the necessary HTML, scripting, and database query code needed to publish on the Web.
  6. Accessing and editing the HTML code is very important to me. Can I edit the HTML in NetObjects Fusion?
    • NetObjects Fusion does not offer direct access to the HTML or CSS code for your website. Upgrading to NetObjects Fusion 15 offers an internal HTML editor that allows you to add custom tags or scripts to any page or object. If you need even more control over HTML, or want to use NetObjects Fusion® in conjunction with your favorite HTML editors, NetObjects Fusion 15 can reference any HTML you create.
