Front Page stopped working....part 2

Guest

Several weeks ago, I ask in this group why my front page stopped working. I
got a few responses but none of them worked. I then came back and wrote of
icons being different between previous web sites and what I saw now. One said
it did not matter. Took the server to "Geek Squad" and several hundred
dollars later, they did not know the answer either. Several E-mails to
MicroSoft Technical went unanswered as well. I finally called Tech support,
credit card and all, and spoke with "Akmed" in India and explained my
problem. He took a few minutes to research the issure and told me of a
security update (KPxxxxx) that turned off or on something in my security
settings which prevented Front Page from working. After about an hour of
Akmed's help and changing several settings, Front Page now works again. His
clue was the difference in the Icons from a saved web site and the newly
created site. It must be IE (pagename).htm and not FrontPage (pagename).htm
Thanks to you that tried to help but its something MicroSoft did and did not
bother to tell anyone about. Auto updates on my server are now turned off.
I'll take the risk instead, because its cheaper to format/reload than go thru
this again.

That's great you got it fixed!

What do you mean by this though; "It must be IE (pagename).htm and not
FrontPage (pagename).htm .."

Rob:
Akmed said in order for it to work, I should see the IE (little E with a
circle)before the page name, followed by index, htm, etc. If it only had the
Front page icon, it had not been converted to something the server
understands. Due to hackers and such, MS did a security update which, in
essence, shut down the server from converting new pages, but would allow
previous sites to be loaded and operate. I did not understand most of his
explanations, but was able to follow his directions to make the *%#& thing
work again. Now, when I publish the site, all the html pages begin with IE
symbol first. I hope you understand what he said...I really didn't.

Do you recall which KB article the patch was in?
- and which patch he had you install to make it work

Interesting.

They only way I've found, so far, to get a page to appear in the browser
address window with the FP icon rather than the IE icon is to create a loose
page (a page outside of a web, outside of FP's knowledge)
