editing existing website

Britt Kelley

I just purchased Front Page 2002, and want to use it to
edit my existing website only. Can anyone help me with a
simple expanlanation? Do I simply download my pages to
Front Page, edit text or pictures, and publish it.

Hi Britt,

There are two ways you can approach this. You can open the remote web site
in FrontPage and edit it live. Or you can open the remote web site in
FrontPage and publish it to your local machine, edit it there, and publish
it back up. In ieither case, you start by opening the remote web site in
FrontPage.

Yes.....you have to download it ("Publish" it to your local machine), then do the
changes and re-publish (with the "changed pages only" option).

But in order to use the FP to Publish from you host to your local machine the site must be running the FP Server Extensions

If the site was not created in FP and does not have the FP SE you will need to FTP the whole site to a folder and then in FP use
File Open Web and browse to that folder (FP will convert it to a local disc based web)

This is the only way to go? FrontPage doesn't have a way to
synchronize the working folder and website? How about a third-party
utility? This has been my dilemma for a while. I work on my website
from home and at work. I usually zip the working files and take them
back and forth. This works, but is cumbersome. Occassionally, I import
the file into a web, so the advice on publshing it locally, instead,
is valuable. Thanks.

Hi Joe,

You actually have 2 choices. You can publish it to your local machine(s),
work on it locally, and publish the changes back to the live site.
Alternatively, you can open the remote web site in FrontPage and work on it
live.
