If you have ever wished to be able to do a final edit or find and replace of certain HTML phrases in your web site built with NetObjects Fusion the Find and Replace Publish Component will easily allow you to do so.

It is much better than doing a manual search and replace on all the files generated by Local or Remote publishing of your site and far less error prone or time consuming as publishing your site is a frequent activity.

Why you need Find and Replace:

If you submit your HTML generated by NetObjects fusion to HTML Validators available on the internet, you may find that certain phrases of HTML require minor correction.  This may not seem like a big deal except that your favourite Search Engines Indexers, Spiders and Robots rely on a site being relatively error free in order to successfully add the sites pages to their Search Engine databases.

Any HTML errors that may be present on your site will  prevent your pages from being fully indexed. When potential clients and customers try to find your content in the search engines they may not be able to find it for the reason that your subject matter was not completely indexed.

Find and Replace Publish Component for NetObjects Fusion allows you to effortlessly correct any errors that you may see as a result of incomplete HTML syntax found by checking with an HTML validator.

The search and replace strings can be entered in to a text data file and can easily be updated in a basic text editor program to add even more Find and Replace phrases.

Another good use for the Find and Replace Publish Component for NetObjects Fusion, is to protect your e-mail address from spammers.

Spammers often find new e-mail addresses to add to their mailing list by sending programs similar to Search Engine Spiders to your site.

They look specifically for the @ symbol which is a vital part of any email address.  Find and Replace can let you change the @ symbol to an HTML equivalent that can defeat Spam Robots and still allow you to receive your legitimate e-mails from your clients. This entry is standard in the Find and Replace input data file and you need only to modify it for your own domain.
