I publish with FrontPage 97?
Yes, but be aware that some WebBot components may not
work well or at all. The FrontPage 97 WebBot components
that require FrontPage 97 extensions do not work well
with the FrontPage 98 extensions. We do tell our
customers that are using FrontPage 97 to go and purchase
FrontPage 98 because of the stability and compatibility
with our servers and to utilize the newest FrontPage
How do I create
When making a sub directory you should use the make
directory "MkDir" function key located on your
FTP program. Open up that directory then place all files
that need to go in there.
do I get my page to load automatically?
You must name your main loading file "index.htm".
Be sure to name everything in lowercase, not "INDEX.HTM"
. Also, this file must to located in your home
directory, which is the first directory you see when
accessing the web server via ftp.

do I update my web pages?
- Close all open pages
in the FrontPage Editor.
- Open up your local
Website with FrontPage Explorer.
- In the FrontPage
Explorer, click the " Publish " button on
the toolbar. The Publish FrontPage Web dialog box is
displayed. In this dialog box, specify the Location
or URL to which you want to publish the current
FrontPage web.You need to be connected to the
internet before you can publish to the World Wide
- In the Publish
FrontPage Web dialog box, click OK. The FrontPage
Explorer publishes the FrontPage web from your
computer to the World Wide Web server you specified
by typing in your domain name or IP address.
You can create and maintain your web pages, images, and
scripts locally and upload them to the web server at
your leisure via FTP. You can overwrite existing files
or transfer a new file.
do I name my files?
The starting point for a Web site is called the home
page. It is the page that is retrieved and displayed by
default when a user visits the Web site. The default
home-page name for a server depends on the serverís
configuration. On many Web servers it is index.htm. Let
FrontPage Explorer name your first page, which in this
case will be index.htm. All other pages that follow can
be named whatever you choose.
If you are creating a page on cars then you will let
FrontPage Explorer generate the name of the home page or
first page for you which would be index.htm. If the next
page you generate has to do with Ford Motors then you
might want to name the second page fordmotor.htm. Do you
see the pattern?
