_2 Upload to Google Sites in bulk

to add pages after number "9" and below '

this page comes after all the numbers,

URL does not hold underscore, but for listing in navigation bar, underscore matters, and  order in navigation bar is to put this page after all the numbers.

could use numbers with leading "0" but hat is harder to read, messy on the eyes, 
underscore  is prob a nicer way

test picture below

picture below inserted directly by code only, i.e. only using the link and html code not the Google site "insert" picture functions

I used the HTML code from the first picture and replaced the URL of the pic with the URL  for the new one

code for first pic:
<div style="display:block;text-align:left"><a href="http://www.heikorudolph.com/imagesLevel1n2/floating-nosefaces.jpg" imageanchor="1"><img src="http://www.heikorudolph.com/imagesLevel1n2/floating-nosefaces.jpg" border="0" height="200" width="135"></a></div>

Ways to upload large amounts of date to google sites

Data liberation method:

Actually there is something similar to ftp to upload files on your computer easier and all, use the Data Liberation for Google Sites: http://www.dataliberation.org/google/sites

Note that you will ONLY be able to modify the main content on each page, and add images and what not, but not the site's structure. Make sure to read the info on the site, add some pages using Google Sites to your site, and then use the program to see how it is working. Then test it by adding files to your folder on your computer, and upload it to see how it works.

Good luck!                   from:   

Cumucloud method:

FTP for Google Sites & Google Docs

CumuCloud File Manager for Google Sites & CumuCloud File Manager for Google Docs projects started due to an internal need. We use both Google Sites & Docs, and we found them to be very useful, however when you want to perform bulk actions you face a real problem.

While Google Docs allow multiple file upload, it does not allow folder structure upload. Google Sites does not allow even that. Fortunately Google released API for both services allowing 3rd parties to build utilities for those services.

CumuCloud File Managers are FTP-like clients which uses Google services APIs to integrate with them and allow the user an easy way to upload & download files from Google sites & Google docs.

The Cumucloud SW talks about files. What I really want is to upload HTML pages for a site, lots of pages with their picture and all embedded as link references.
Will this Cumuclooud SW upload files - probably
will those files be registered by the Google site and indexed in the navigation bar ?
They may NOT be, because they were NOT created by the "Add file" button on the site itself.

To get arund this:
Add files with the name of the file you want to upload, eg. page1.html  using "Add file" from the site. Leave this page blank.
then add the external page, with the name page1.html  only this page has full content and hmtl code content.
worth trying.

Google wa nts to make their sites "build your own" not simply places to dump data and to use for hosting.
I suspect on reason is that they need to make sure they retain the ability to show ads,
Poeple uloading their own stuff may reduce that ability

 TODO: do google search for new tools to upload bulk data content to Google sites.

Import XML data to Google App Engine

Upload bulk data stored locally in XML files to Google App Engine's persistent object database

Mr Joseph P. McCarthy (josemcca@ie.ibm.com), Software Developer, IBM

Summary:  The Google App Engine launched in April 2008, and included a method to upload bulk data stored in CSV files using Python. Java™ language support was added a year later. To date, the App Engine lacks Java-native support for bulk uploads and CSV remains the only data storage medium supported by the bulk uploading tool. Explore the various methods to store data from XML documents on the App Engine persistent database in this article.

Its now possible to import your content from Microsoft SharePoint to Google Sites using an app from the Apps Marketplace called Bulk File Uploader byCloudSherpas.

It uses Google Sites API to upload your content to a Google Site from which you can access it from the Site Map and create your own navigation. It can be any website content but users have reported that it will work with SharePoint content. Videos and media content has also proven successfully uploaded so they count towards Google Sites storage rather than Google Docs storage limits
