How to post html site as my CV?
Hi,I am a member of Archnet for about 10 days, and I would like to post a html site that I made with Adobe GoLive as my CV, but I don't know how? When i post one page with hipertext and pictures, no pictures can be seen by other users, and no pages open when u click on hypertext.
Thanks :)
If u speak serbian or croatian, use it in your answer :) Thanks again!

How to post html site as my CV?
Dear Ognjen,

You're having this problem because html does not embed images like pdf or word, it links to them. To go around it, do the following:

a) You should post all the files that are referred to in your html document on ArchNet, in your personal space and you should make them visible to the public.

b) Check in your html document to see to which page the links are referring to. It's very likely that you have them as relative links that refer to the location of the images on your harddrive. The easiest way to go around this is to use absolute links (e.g. http://archnet.org/..../image.jpg) showing the internet location of the image as opposed to relative links (e.g. ~/image.jpg). I.e. The browser should know what the absolute location of your images is.

Let me know if any of this is not clear. You may prefer to convert your html into a pdf to avoid all of the above.

Best,

Thank you for your help.

Everything you said is clear to me (I understand it). But there is one problem. I should upload images in my image collections, right? I don't know how to do that. What should I write in description, and should I select text or html.

Is it the same with html pages that open when you click on hypertext and pics?

Should I upload them in my files?

Thank you very much!!!

Dear Ognjen,

This is a bit tricky... since the files in the ArchNet personal workspaces are embedded into a web interface. i.e. The actual link for the image or whatever other file is different than the link at which that file is displayed with all the admin options. It would be easiest to just upload files onto any other webspace you may have. But if you don't, here's what to do:

    * Go to >My Workspace
    * Click on >My Collections (left hand menu)
    * Choose >Files
    * Upload all your files there. You can just use the filename as 'title' and leave description blank. Make sure to choose "public" under visibility/privacy settings
    * Once you've done that, you have to now collect the specific URLs pointing to those files. This would be, as you would guess, the 'download' button that appears when you go to each file. Just right-click on 'download' and say 'copy link location'. This is your URL... use it in your CV html
Oh, and don't forget to change your CV privacy settings to 'public' in the main 'edit privacy controls'. Good luck!

Thank you very much!!!
I did it! There is still some fixing left, but the main job is done. I'm not an web expert, but I think it looks ok.
You can see it in my profile!
Bye, bye!!! :)
