NetObjects Fusion Folder Structure

The NetObjects Fusion files are divided in three categories. By default, when you perform a standard installation, NetObjects Fusion automatically creates three NetObjects Fusion folders located here:

Program Files

C:\Program Files (x86)\NetObjects\NetObjects Fusion. This is the NetObjects Fusion Installation folder. If you perform a custom installation, you may choose another location for this folder. Do not move or rename the NetObjects Fusion installation folder or any folders within it. If you need to relocate the NetObjects Fusion installation folder, you must uninstall and reinstall the program. NetObjects Fusion performs best when the application and its parts remain in the folder recommended during installation.

The subfolders of the NetObjects Installation folder are organized according to their use:

  • \Components contains the NetObjects Fusion Components, which are mini-applications that add functionality to your site. See Using NetObjects Fusion Components.
  • \FSI Updater contains files required to auto update NetObjects Fusion.
  • \Java contains Java applets and beans.
  • \NetObjects System contains files used by the program; do not delete or move these files.

Third Party Licenses.html contains important information about this version of NetObjects Fusion.

Note: Default profiles are stored in the NetObjects System folder.

User Site Projects and Profiles

C:\Documents and Settings\user_name\Documents\NetObjects Fusion. This is the default folder for all website projects and user profiles. All the websites you create are stored in this folder unless you change the location when you save your project. The default folder for new user websites organizes its files in two subfolders:

  • \NetObjects System folder. User Profiles are stored in the NetObjects System folder. This folder contains information such as user profile, output settings and website preferences. A unique profile is created for each account set up to use that workstation.
  • \User Sites contains all the websites you create. For each website, NetObjects Fusion automatically creates a subfolder within \User Sites to keep your projects organized. Each NetObjects Fusion website is saved with a .nod file extension. The site folder also includes an
  • \Assets folder where the assets originally included in the website template are saved, a
  • \Styles folder where all active SiteStyles associated with the .nod are located, a
  • \Preview folder where HTML sufficient for previewing but not for publishing is stored, and a
  • \Backups folder where backup .nod files are saved. After you publish the website, a
  • \Local Publish folder is added.

Note: Do not remove files or folders located within the \User Sites folder. Since NetObjects Fusion keeps track of assets and links, folder names and locations are very important. If you change names and/or locations using Windows Explorer or File Manager, NetObjects Fusion might not be able to track your assets and links properly.

Public Documents

C:\Users\Users\Public\Public Documents\NetObjects Fusion. This is the default folder where you CSS libraries, website templates, and SiteStyles are stored. These assets are necessary and shared by all local user accounts.

  • \Backup Manager Contains the website project backup files.
  • \Image Bank contains a collection of image provided for your use by NetObjects. New collections downloaded from the Online View are stored here.
  • \Legacy Styles contains retired local SiteStyles.
  • \Online contains files required to render the Online view.
  • \Styles contains a separate folder for each local SiteStyle, including the ones you create. See Using SiteStyles.
  • \Templates contains the AutoSites folder, which contains the Blank Site Template that is required to create a new website. See Working with Templates.
  • \WebFonts contains a curated set of decorative typefaces for use within NetObjects Fusion. Custom Web Fonts should be added to this folder.

Note: Do not delete or move the AutoSites folder. This folder contains files necessary for NetObjects Fusion to run correctly.
