Connecting To Your Website On The ISP's Web Server:

Frontpage98 (FP98) is different than Frontpage 2000. There are two main components: Frontpage Explorer and Frontpage Editor. You open Frontpage Explorer to navigate the website. Whenever you create a new page or edit an existing page, Frontpage Editor will pop-up to handle those functions.

Open Frontpage98 by double-clicking on the FrontPage Explorer icon (pictured above) or by clicking on the Start button -> Programs -> Microsoft FrontPage (as pictured below).


You will see the window pictured below. If you've opened your website before then it will be listed in the box. Just double-click it open. If this is your first time to use Frontpage98 to open your website then click the "more webs" button.


The "more webs" button will generate the window below. Type in your full website address (including http://) as demonstrated below. Once you've entered in the website address, click the OK button.



Website Development Environment:

The main Frontpage98 Explorer window is pictured below. You are now ready to add website content or edit existing content.

Click the "New Page" button (top left hand corner) to create a new Web page. This will open the Frontpage Editor window where you create and edit Web content. You can also double-click any existing content (such as index.html in the picture below) to go into Frontpage Editor to design Web pages.

Tip: Be sure to name your home page index.html (not .htm, .asp, etc.). You can use those extensions on any other pages but the home page must be index.html.


Saving (NOT "publishing") Your Website: The Frontpage Editor window is pictured below. Type in your content. Use the file menu to save new material. Do NOT use the "publish" function. You are already logged directly onto our ISP Web server so you merely have to save changes and additions as you make them.
