What is BookWright's Import Website feature?
The Import Website feature in BookWright allows you to easily pull your text and images from any live public website, including blogs.
You'll find the Import Website feature in the Add/Insert menu.
Import a website
Importing your text and images is a 2-step process.
1. Enter the web address (URL) for the site. BookWright will scan the website for available pages or blog entries.
2. Select the pages you want to import. BookWright will then download all the images and text from those pages and place them in the Photos and Text Files tabs. From there, simply add this content to your book and format your pages.
Before you import
- Be sure the URL of your site is public and has HTTP:// at the front when you input it into BookWright.
- If your website or blog requires a login, it will not work with the Import Website feature at this time. This can be resolved by setting your website or blog to public, importing the content and setting it back to “private” if you have privacy concerns.
- The maximum number of pages available for import is 500. If you reach the maximum and would like to import more, you can import each individual URL.
- The scanning and importing processes can take several minutes depending on the size and complexity of your site. If importing a large site or blog, it might be helpful to import it as individual URLs.
- Images used on websites are often compressed to 72dpi for faster page loading. This means that your images may be too small to print well. BookWright will show a warning symbol (a small yellow triangle) if the image resolution is too low. You can try making the image smaller on the page until the warning goes away.
