Problem with using Kompozer/Nvu to publish

by 11 comments
I have tried and tried to get my adsense to show up on my site ad with the help of google forum have narrowed down the problem to the way the site is getting published...

It keeps changing the code which should be:

<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">
</script>

into

<script type="text/javascript" src="show_ads.js">
</script>

No matter what I do the result is always the same, I wirte it out and it is good, save it and it is good, as soon as I publish though it has a hissy fit and changes it...

Is there a hidden setting somewhere to make it work correctly that I havent found?

    Can't you go into site after publishing and change? ... why don't you just upload using FTP or c-panel instead of using the Editor's feature

    Yup - I totally agree with Richard. Trellian is one of the best WYSIWYG editors out there that writes 'proper' code.

    Been using it for years!

    You could just open the page create with Kompozer with a proper text editor and change the value manually, then FTP it to your site.

    Not sure how to do that on godaddy, it might be the simplest thing but I cannot find the option lol

    If you're not making ALL of your changes inside the Source View (vs Normal view) that could be the problem.

    I use Kompozer for pretty much everything I do in static HTML, but I don't publish through it. Get Filezilla or another free FTP tool, or upload through your host's cpanel functions. I have not seen Kompozer fudge code like that when you just save files to your computer... only when publishing with it directly. Easy problem to get around.

    I had a problem with Kompozer changing some encrypted code back to unencrypted no matter which way I used to save it. I ended up copying and pasting the HTML code before trying to save it in Kompozer into notepad, and saving it as an HTML file. Then I'd upload via FTP using Filezilla. Kompozer's FTP tends to be REALLY buggy anyway. Just don't use Kompozer to save it or changes the code back.

    I have used Kompozer for a few years now and have never had a problem , I always use Kompozer to edit my sites then i upload my
    website with Filezilla .

    I have done a number of sites in KompoZer, but never used it to do the upload. Like others I have used filezilla and an inexpensive FTP program called CuteFTP (I use their cheapest version - don't need the other whistles and bells).

    These work fine with Godaddy hosting. Just use the FTP user ID and FTP password you have at Godaddy. Plug those into Filezilla or CuteFTP and start the FTP software.

    What you will see on the screen is a window with two parts - it looks like Windows Explorer. The left-hand side is your hard drive, the right-hand part is the folders in your site area at Godaddy. Upload your index and any images or image folder depending on how you set those up when you designed the page in KompoZer.

    Kompozer shouldn't change the script if you are not using KompoZer to upload.

    @Richard - Thanks for the heads up on Trellian. I will take a look. I usually use Dreamweaver, but always interested in seeing what else is out there.
