View Full Version : Protecting Web Reference Pages
03-05-2006, 04:44 PM
Wondering if I can get some advice on putting many informational reference pages on my website. I don't have any formal programming background and need some help with the best format to put some reference pages to my website. I would like to put many informational reference pages to my site which are currently on Excel spreadsheets, Word or Microsoft Publisher. Is it possible to allow others to copy the information but only in its entirety including my company name and logo? I believe with Adobe pages can be printed but not changed. Any best program for this which is easily viewable by all. Or should I just publish the pages in the easiest and least expensive manner possible?
You could put up links to excel, word or pdf pages, but the SE's have an annoying habit of showing a link to the file, and not to a page on your website where users can navigate for themselves.
If you don't want to learn how to use an html editor such as Dreamweaver, or Frontpage (not recommended but quite easy to use) then you could open your documents in Word and use the "save as html" option to generate a reasonable page that you can put up on your site.
You can insert a copyright notice, but you can't really stop people ripping off your content, even if you use an Adobe pdf file. But maybe a few people will put up a link to your site; it's a chance you have to take when you put up original material.
