Why won't RocketCake open an existing html file. I don't want to recreate what I've already worked on!

Hi,

RocketCake is a code generator, it creates HTML Code from your design. It isn't able to import existing HTML Code. Part of the reason for this is that it is not possible to automatically convert static websites to responsive ones. So if you would try to import an existing website, RocketCake would have to convert it to a responsive one, so this isn't possible.

I do find this lack of import or opening other html files is a real speed bump. I too am not looking to recreate work I've done. There is no "Import" available even even if the website was designed with RC.

There is no software that can be used to create web pages that is capable of importing HTML pages. This is not technically possible. And even if it worked, there would still be so much reworking that the page could be recreated right away.

I also don't understand why it should be necessary to import HTML pages. When you create a page with Rocket Cake, you save your project at the end. And you can open this project at any time and have your created page ready for further processing. You should just make sure that you don't lose your project files, e.g. due to a hard drive crash. It is therefore always important to make backups of your projects.

One thing is really annoying in Rocket Cake, namely that there is no automatic save function. It happens to me every now and then that Rocket Cake just crashes without comment. And if you haven't just thought about saving shortly beforehand, hours of work can be lost.

In my opinion, an automatic save function should definitely be built into one of the next updates.

Would be an idea. But it's like with other software: It's good to train yourself to press CTRL+S from time to time, just to be sure.

Sure, that's true. And because there is no automatic storage, I have got into the habit of regularly saving manually. But when you are absorbed in your work, it just happens that it is forgotten. It just happened to me again on the weekend that my work of about 2 hours was lost because RocketCake simply closed without comment.

Try using the 64 bit version of RocketCake (get it from the download page), it has access access to way more memory, which might be your problem.

I've been using the 64-bit version from the start. But my homepage now consists of about 150 pages with about 3000 pictures. And there RocketCake seems to be gradually reaching its limits despite 64 bit. Loading the project file now takes just under a minute. And occasionally the program just crashes without warning.

now please! 3000 pictures!
Have you ever loaded 3000 images in any other program? If it works at all, how long do you have to wait? I think your problems are probably a memory problem.

If I would use so many pictures, I link them externally. I.e. the images in a separate folder on the server and each link.

Do you have any idea how long it takes to externally link 3000 images individually?
RocketCake now offers the convenient option of integrating the images directly internally. And nowhere can I find any information that there is a limit to the maximum number of images that can be included.

I used other software in the past. And with it I created significantly larger websites. I can't remember that the program crashed once. In addition, this software has automatically carried out an automatic storage in the background at a freely selectable time interval.

Unfortunately, I can no longer use this software because you can only create static pages with it.

I think RocketCake is very good software. But like any software, RocketCake is not error-free either. That's not bad at all, as long as there are updates from time to time. In my opinion, software must not simply crash without comment, but must at least give the user the option to save data.

And I'll stick to the fact that automatic regular storage would be desirable. With other programs, e.g. MS Office, there is such a function too.
