Editing Web Page with FrontPage


J

jcalhoun

web page now gives option of "edit with Word" not FrontPage. Not sure why
this has happened. Also, with online registration form users receive a
"FrontPage Error" and then directed to inform web master - not sure why this
is happening either. Any help would be much appreciated.

The "edit with word" is not a FrontPage setting, you have to play with your
IE settings.

We need much more detail to diagnose the other error. A link to the form
itself would be a good start because then we can look at the code and try to
figure out what you are doing. Also, has this form worked in the past and
just suddenly stopped working or has it never worked?

I['m sorry, but what is an IE setting?

It has worked in the past. Here is the link to our website.

It is the registration form that now receives the error message. I do
receive the registration - it's just the users do not think their
registration went through. Thank you so much

Right click on the IE icon on your desktop, in IE properties, go to the
programs tab, then to the HTML editor and select FrontPage.

The IE setting controls what programs do what. Your's for whatever reason
got switched from FP to Word. Easy to fix
In Internet Explorer:
Tools >Internet Options >Programs >HTML Editing

I didn't wade my way to find the form on your site, if you can post the
direct URL I will take a look at it.

I did notice when looking around the site that you have a lot of spaces in
your file names. This can cause issues- if you absolutety need to seperate
the words I would either use a dash or an underscore.

Change
<a href="mailto:[email protected]">
<INPUT TYPE=submit VALUE="Submit Form"></a>
To
<INPUT TYPE=submit VALUE="Submit Form">

The form will not function correctly while the submit button is wrapped
in a hyperlink. Some browsers will load an email client and not bother
with the form data at all.

Also, remove all spaces from folder and file names. The %20 (which
replaces a space in a URL) can, and does, confuse some browsers and
server functions.
