FrontPage Info

This template was designed using FrontPage 2003; however, it will also work well with FP2002. Note that FP2000 does not have the variety of link bar styles found in newer versions and users will have to reset the text link bar properties for the navigation links.

Adding New Pages:


Hot Tip:

You may create hyperlinks which jump to places on the same page, called Bookmarks.

First, create the places that you will jump to. Go to Insert/ Bookmark, then type a one-word description of the section you are jumping to. Then, create the hyperlink that will jump to that bookmark. Begin like any other hyperlink, but use the drop-down bookmark menu to select the bookmark you will jump to.

As with any other FrontPage web, you can add as many pages as necessary for your site.

1. Copy an existing Page: This is useful if you have inserted a logo graphic and made other layout changes that you want to apply to all the new pages that you are creating. Open a page that has the layout the way you want it, then go to File/Save As. Save the page under a new name and save the page title as well. Then go to Navigation View and drag your new page into the navigation structure. We have created layout1.htm for this purpose.

2. Create a new page template: Open newpage.htm and then click File/Save As.  From the dropdown choose FrontPage Template (.tem). This will add a new page template to your available templates.

Changing Page Names:

The page names which appear on the page banner can be changed from within the Navigation view. Just right-click on the page and select Rename. Type in the name you wish to appear on the page banner.

Editing Your Pages:

To edit each page, simply delete our text and replace it with your own. Work carefully so that you do not drag or move any edges enclosed within a bounding box. If you accidentally move an element, click on the "Undo" icon and begin again. We recommend that you test your changes frequently by going to File > Preview in Browser.

Template Limitations:

As far as we know, there are no limitations in how you choose to use our templates. You can add as many pages as necessary, remove our link bars and add your own, or use a scripting language and then change the file extension from htm to ASP or PHP as needed. The only limiting factor will be your own knowledge of FrontPage and other server side scripting languages should you choose to use them.

Creating Email Links:

Creating an email link is easy. In fact, if you type out the email address, FrontPage will usually automatically turn it into a hyperlink.

If you wish to hyperlink some other word, phrase, or graphic, highlight the words, or image you want to link and right click on it then choose Hyperlink to bring up the hyperlink dialog box. Then either click on the "Email" button, or type in "mailto:email@..." into the URL box.

Please note that if you only type over an existing email address, FrontPage may not change the HTML coding automatically. You will need to right-click on the email link and select Hyperlink Properties from the menu. Confirm in the dialog box that the email link is correct or if it needs editing.
