    Default Supersite to Conventional

    The strangest thing happened, and I realized it too late. I began designing a website and it created it as a supersite (unbeknownst to me). It should be a conventional website. Is this going to cause me problems down the road? I have added multiple pages already. I've also tried to figure out how to 'flip a switch' to turn it into a conventional website... but have not been able to figure this out. Thoughts? Could this turn into an issue?

    Not an issue.

    Utilities > Web Export Options > Conventional Site. Done.

    You will no longer have page transitions or vertical rolldown.

    I switch back and forth all the time and cannot think what you might lose.

    If you have added lots of Placeholder code, switching to a Supersite would potentially be a difficulty.

    Yeah, I tried that. But it does not give me the option to choose conventional.

    Then you probably set it up as Web (Presentation) or a Print document.

    The little icon by the side of your document tab is probably a (stacked) paper one and not a blue W.

    In Options > General > Document Editing > Document type, check is says Web document.

    As a rule, no. If you code was specific to a shape, that should still work.
    If it were for a Page, a Supersite mungs all the pages together anyhow.
    A Website collection of code stays as is.

    Funnily enough, in the past four months I have had more commissions to "sort out" Xara-designed sites rather than building ones afresh.

    I am happy either way but I prefer the former as the client gains more xara experience and I also know the site will be maintained better as they understand the nuances i have delivered.
