Browser and content

Unfortunately I cannot get hold of the person who told me this, but I wondered if anyone can tell me what he meant by 'You must use Lotus Notes to create content and a browser to read content'. This refers to a database in Lotus Notes that aids the user to design web pages. I do not know what he meant by that statement which he was referring to .nsf files.

By enabling the http task on the Domino server the databases are dynamically converted to HTML when a browser requests them.
To turn on the http task, go tyo the Domino server console and type in
LOAD HTTP
In order to have http start everytime you start the Domino server go to the notes.ini file for the Domino server and append HTTP to the servertasks lists.
In order to test the Domino server as a web server, go to you browser and type in the IP address of the domino server as the URL.  If the HTTP task is running then you should see a list of databases on the server.
To open a specific database, type in the following in the url:
http://dominoserveripaddress/databasename.nsf?OpenDatabase

Without doing any specific programming the Domino server will convert Notes databases to HTML and display them to a browser.  When the documents are displayed to a browser they are in read mode.  With this said, you can populate the Notes databases with data via the Notes client and then users could view the data through a browser.

However, you can add an action to the form that when the document is displayed to a browser an edit action will appear.  This can be done with @ functions and will allow the browser to add data to the Notes database.  The data is then saved when the submit button is pressed.
