FrontPage Extensions

This page contains the following sections:

Installing FrontPage Extensions

Publishing Your Web Site

Getting Additional Support

Note: FrontPage Extensions are not included on our less expensive accounts but can be added if you wish. However, in most cases the extensions are not required so we don't include them in order to save our clients the expense of buying something they may not need. There are some features in FrontPage that do require FrontPage Extensions. If you avoid these, you can still create a very nice web site with FrontPage. For information on uploading your site created with FrontPage without FrontPage Extensions, please click here.

   Installing FrontPage Extensions

If you use the features within FrontPage then you will first need to enable/install FrontPage Extensions. It's easy.

Note: Installing FrontPage extensions for your site does not install Microsoft FrontPage on your computer. FrontPage is a separate software application which you will need to purchase and install on your computer.

Note: Turning on Microsoft FrontPage extensions disables utilities in the Control Panel. When you enable FrontPage extensions, you are telling the server that FrontPage will perform certain functions rather than the Control Panel Options. These options include:

  • Site Creation Tool
  • Redirect URL
  • Mime Types
  • Protect Directories. FrontPage uses the same .htaccess file as the Protect Directories tool provided on some accounts. Once you have installed the extensions, you should not use the Protect Directories tool.

How To Install Microsoft FrontPage Extensions:
From the Control Panel, select the MS FrontPage icon. The Microsoft FrontPage Extension Manager displays. To install the FrontPage Extensions, select the Install FrontPage button. A message appears, indicating the extensions will be installed within approximately ten minutes.

How To Verify that FrontPage Extensions are Installed:
From the Control Panel, select the MS FrontPage icon. The Microsoft FrontPage Extension Manager displays. To verify the FrontPage Extensions installation, select the Verify button. A message displays, indicating the extensions have been installed.

How To Remove Microsoft FrontPage Extensions:
From the Control Panel, select the MS FrontPage icon. The Microsoft FrontPage Extension Manager displays. To remove the FrontPage Extensions, select the Remove FrontPage Extensions button. A message appears indicating the extensions will be removed within approximately ten minutes.

   Publishing your web site

This section will guide you step-by-step through configuring Microsoft FrontPage to exchange files between your computer and your web site. The steps shown here are for FP2000, but older versions work in the same manner.

In order to proceed, you'll need to have three things: Microsoft FrontPage installed; a connection to the Internet via your Internet service provider; and you'll need to have installed the FrontPage extensions in your account Control Panel.

We suggest you start by creating a simple test page to upload.

Before you can publish an html file to your web site with FrontPage, you must either have a page already created, or create a page. To create a page with FrontPage, follow these simple steps:

1. With FrontPage open, choose File --> New .

2. Type in "FrontPage test page"

3. From the menu bar, choose File --> Save As.

4. Name the test file "index.html"

Once you have the file saved to your hard drive, you are ready to publish the file.

Publish Your Web Page.

1. From the menu bar, choose File --> Publish Web...

You'll get a dialog box like this:

2. Click on the Options button

You will see a dialog box like this:

3. In box below Specify the location to publish your site to: enter the full URL for your site.

4. If this is the first time you are publishing your site, select Publish all pages...

5. Select Include subwebs .

You should now have a dialog box that looks like this:

Be sure to use your real domain name instead of 'yourdomainname.com' !

6. Click the Publish button.

You should now see a dialog box like this one:

7. Enter your username and password.

If you have entered all the details correctly, FrontPage 2000 will then publish your site. You will see a dialog box like this one when it has finished:

8. Click Done .

  FrontPage and passwords

Loading and changing passwords in FrontPage requires some added steps. To set or change passwords, you'll need to log on to your current web in order for the security menu choice to be active.

To change the user and password for FrontPage login:

Go to the FrontPage menu:

1. Click: Tools->Permissions
Tools->Security in FP2000

2. Add: Name, Password

3. Click "Administer, author and browse.." radio button

4. Click "Apply" and then "Ok".

To change the password:

Click: Tools->Change Password
Tools->Security->Change Password in FP2000

Type in old password, then new.

  FrontPage Support

Our technical support staff is here to make sure that the FrontPage extensions on the server are working properly. If you suspect that there is a problem or get an error please contact support. We will also try to point you to resources that will help you get information on any problems that you may be experiencing with FrontPage. However, our primary responsibility is restricted to the server software and not your FrontPage software.

Where can I find additional FrontPage support?

For more FAQ's and support please go to Microsoft's Product Support Services site at http://support.microsoft.com/support/frontpage/.

For Microsoft's Personal Online Support Services for all Microsoft's products including FrontPage please go to http://support.microsoft.com/support.

For Tips and News about FrontPage from CNET's Builder.com please go to http://home.cnet.com/webbuilding/0-7296.html.

Features not supported on our servers

Some FrontPage Extension options will not function properly because of a lack of support from Microsoft.

  • Active Server Pages
  • ODBC and MS SQL Database connections (Access, FoxPro)
  • ActiveX
  • VBScript

There are good alternatives to each of these features within our services, with the exception of databases, which are offered only with the One World plan upgrades.
