  Introduction To FrontPage 2002 for Microsoft Windows:

Important:  November 2002 Update:  We've made changes to the way FrontPage works with our system.  You can no longer edit pages directly on our main server.  You will need to create the page on your home computer and then use the "Publish Web" feature to post it to our computer system for worldwide viewing.  You can also upload the material using an FTP program.  This page discusses how to configure FrontPage to connect to our server and transfer the files from your computer to our server.

Configuring FrontPage 2002 to connect to your personal web space:

After completing your web page, you'll want to transfer the files and folders to your personal web space.  In FrontPage, this is known as 'Publishing'.  To publish your web page, you'll need to connect to our server by entering the correct information.  The tutorial below discusses where and what information to enter.

Transferring your website with FrontPage 2002 from your computer to our server:

To transfer your files and folders, do the following:

On the Toolbar, click File and select Publish Web from the menu.


The Publish Web window should now appear.

You'll see a list of the files and folders you plan to publish.

Towards the bottom, left corner, you'll see a the Options button. 

Click Options.


The Options window appears displaying four tabs:  General, Configure Editors, Reports View, and Publish.

For now we'll concern ourselves with the Publish tab, but you'll want to familiarize yourself with the other three.

If you're making changes to your web page, you may want to consider selecting Changed pages only under the Publish section.  This way FrontPage will update only the pages to which you made changes rather than the whole web site.  If this is your first time publishing your web page, the option won't affect anything.

Click OK.


Click Publish to transfer you files and folders to the server.


FrontPage will transfer the files.  It may take a few minutes or more depending on the amount and size of the files being transferred.


When you finish, FrontPage will let you know if the transfer is successful or not.

Click Done.
