KompoZer Publishing

KompoZer (fork of Nvu, Mozilla Composer, Netscape Composer 7.x)

KompoZer is an open source WYSIWYG HTML editor-based on the now-discontinued Nvu editor, which was based on the discontinued Mozilla Composer, which was based on the discontinued Netscape Composer. As they are all related projects, the directions for KompoZer will work on most (but not all) previous incarnations. It is recommended that you use KompoZer, since it is the most recent version and is still maintained.

Here are the basic settings which work for HostGator customers.

  • Site name - Whatever you want
  • Publish address - ftp://ftp.domain.com/
  • HTTP address of your homepage - http://domain.com/

On the Publishing tab

  • Page Title - Shows up in the top of the browser
  • Filename - index.html (or whatever name you desire)
  • Site subdirectory for this page - /public_html/

Leave all other settings as they are.
