    Hello Everyone,

    This is my first post. I am in the process of developing a website for my church. I also am the sound tech and media shout person for my church. I would like to unveil the website to my church and show this on our overhead projector. I am able to connect my computer automatically to the projector. I now show overheads using Power Point and Media Shout but am unsure how it will work with the website. We do not currently have internet connection at the church, but I was thinking about buying a wireless connection card that is available thru AT&T. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks

    Have you tried using your computer's web browser to open local copies of the web site content directly from your computer's hard drive? This should work unless you have dynamically generated content being created by the server.

    Thanks for the information. However, the web site is hosted on Finalweb's server using their templates. Can I still view it thru my hard drive? Thanks for any help I can get.

    I am not familiar with Finalweb (and at $40 / month :eek: , I am in no hurry to get familiar with them). If their template based web sites are just web pages where you fill in the blanks on their site, then you probably do not have copies of the web pages on your computer.

    You may want to test out one of these free web site down loaders that claim to copy all or part of any web site for local viewing from your hard drive:

    DISCLAIMER: I have heard of these types of programs but have never used any of them. It is possible that someone else here may have a recommendation.
