eMagStudio eMags can be published online in 2 ways: Either by using the built-in FTP (read more about FTP here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_Transfer_Protocol ) publisher of eMagStudio, or by publishing an HTML version of the eMag to the harddrive and then uploading it manually.

  • The eMagStudio publisher functions just like any other FTP client by connecting directly to your webserver. You will need a web-host set up, and all relevant information such as the FTP host address, username, password as well as the HTTP (Web) address of your webserver to set up publishing 
  • eMagStudio stores the settings of your web-host in a so-called "Publishing Profile" which allows you to reuse your FTP settings for all of your publications once it has been set up. Publishing profiles also handle settings for publishing to your local hard-drive, both for creating HTML and Offline publications.  
  • Publishing Profiles can be created through the "eMagStudio Publishing Wizard", or manually from the File menu by selecting "Manage Publishing Profiles" 

Publish directly online using the eMagStudio built-in publisher

  • In eMagStudio, press the "Publish" button in the lower right corner of the program 
  • Select "Publish eMag for Online reading" 
  • Check the "Publish the eMag directly to an FTP server" checkbox, and if you would like to have your eMag work on mobile devices, also the "Include Mobile support in online editions" checkbox 
  • Fill out the necessary fields for your FTP / Web-server

FTP_Setup

    • HTTP Address - This is the web (HTTP) address that corresponds to the FTP host and folder that you are uploading to. For instance: If your FTP host is called ftp.mysite.com then often the HTTP Address will be http://www.mystite.com - however, this will be different for every webserver, and often the directory structure between the two protocols can be different. If in doubt about how to use this feature, we suggest you contact your hosting provider or system administrator 

    • Host Name - This is the host name of your FTP server, you should input only the hostname itself, and not the ftp:// prefix - e.g. ftp.mysite.com instead of ftp://ftp.mysite.com 
    • Remote Folder Name - This is the folder on the FTP server that you would like your eMags to be published to. Be aware that once your Publishing Profile is set up, eMagStudio will automatically create sub-folders to this folder for publishing your eMags into. This is to allow you to re-use the same Publishing Profile over and over. Sub-folders will be named after the title of the eMag 
    • Username - This is the username for your account on your FTP server 
    • Password - This is the password for your account on your FTP server 







  • Give the settings you just created a name - this will place a new Publishing Profile in the "Wizard" folder of your publishing profiles, allowing you to reuse the same settings again later 
  • Publish your eMag 
  • See your eMag online by clicking the "View eMag" button. If everything was set up correctly, your eMag should open directly in your browser 


Publishing eMags locally and then uploading manually using an FTP client

  • In eMagStudio, press the "Publish" button in the lower right corner of the program 
  • Select "Publish eMag for Online reading" 
  • Check the "Publish the files to your harddrive so they can be manually uploaded to the web" checkbox, and if you would like to have your eMag work on mobile devices, also the "Include Mobile support in online editions" checkbox 
  • Select the folder on your hard-drive in which the eMag should be placed 
  • Give the settings you just created a name - this will place a new Publishing Profile in the "Wizard" folder of your publishing profiles, allowing you to reuse the same settings again later 
  • Publish your eMag 
  • Use the "Open Folder" button to find your eMag on the hard-drive 
  • Use an FTP client to upload the entire eMag folder to your web-host.
