I am working on a very large Project. It has many pages. I have been working on it for several years. I am a professor at a technological university. Every time I want to create a new one I get the message:

"Be careful! Your Project has too many pages in it!.
You can divide your work into serveral differents projects and connect them to one another."

I don't know how to divide my work into various projects and connect them to each other. Please help.

I have created more projects and I have linked them together through the levels, it could be an idea, right? Good job and sorry for the translation but I don't speak English I hope it's understandable.

Hi Jose, 

you basically need to follow the same steps you would in order to create multi-language websites. 

First, you need to duplicate the project as many times as you want. Let's assume you duplicate it just once, so you have Project A and Project B.

Open Project A and remove the unnecessary pages.

Open Project B and remove the unnecessary pages.

At this stage, you will have some pages of the original Project on Project A and the others on Project B.

You will then have to export Project A normally and Project B on a subfolder, such as /Project-B. The URLs will then be www.yourwebsite.com for Project A and www.yourwebsite.com/project-b for Project B. 

Now you need to connect the websites to each other: open Project A, go to Step 3 and add a new Level. Set a link to Project B (www.yourwebsite.com/project-b). In this way, when clicking on that link, users will be redirected to Project B. 

Then, open Project B, go to Step 3 and add a new Level. Set a link to Project A (www.yourwebsite.com). In this way, when clicking on that link, users will be redirected to Project A.

Please make sure to make a backup copy of the whole project first, so you can rely on it case of issues.

Thanks! Kind regards.

Also, it is just a warning - you can ignore it and X5 still works fine. 

My project is 500+ pages - no problem... (the uplaod can be a bit time consuming but not bad on fast connection.
