Pasting long html into static pages

One of my clients has a very long piece of information they want to paste into a static page.

When we paste it in, part of the information shows up fine, but the rest is cut off with some strange symbols showing on the bottom.

The test page we are using can be seen at http://www.magicmarketingtools.com/staticpages/index.php?page=20040304092621428.

Any feedback would be welcome.

There may be a character limit. I took a peek at the Source Code. FRONT PAGE! Ugh. The HTML code is tag soup, for which Front Page is famous. Clean up your code, remove the extraneous SPAN and other tags, which will cut down the character count and perhaps allow the entire document to be inserted.

Other than that, I suggest each of the sections be a static page. You can then create a new Block that has links to each of those static pages that you create.

The size limit of static pages has been discussed before, btw ...

I had a hunch that was the case. But I bet if he cleaned up his code, he could probably squeeze most of it in there.

Still, for ease of reading, I like my second suggestion better anyway.

The key to the name "static page" is page. It's frustrating to have to scroll and scroll and scroll to get the info you want. Breaking it down into bite size pieces would be easier on the reader and satisfy the character limitation (although generous) of Geeklog.

Joni,

I agree entirely with your suggestions, actually. I only wanted to point out the technical side of things (as well as trying to cross-link topics in case someone comes across this thread at a later date).

bye, Dirk
