Previewing Site

I am creating a web site with FP 2002 and would like my business partner to
review changes, etc. before publishing. Is there a way she can review before
I publish or go live? She does not have FP on her machine. Thanks!

You would have to publish it someplace where she would be able to view it online.

Thanks. Since I am new to this stuff I have to ask if there is anyway I can
publish without it being live. In other words, just so she can view it. Any
ideas?

She would have to view it directly on your PC, otherwise you have to publish it to a location on the
internet.

If you zip all the files (including images) to a folder and e-mail it to her,
she can unzip it into a folder and double click on index.html (or whatever
your home page is) and preview your work on her computer. Problem is, this
may be a *big* zip file and depending on your e-mail client, the attachment
may be too big to get through. If you're only worried about seeing the text,
send her the home page and let her see it in IE (or whatever browser) without
images (which will be displayed as boxes with x's in them).

Do you have a CD burner.
If so publish the site to a folder on your machine and burn the folder to a CD

Or, if the site is not too large, zip the folder with WinZip and email it to her.
She can then unzip the folder, open it and double click on index.htm

It will then run in the browser just like a web site.
However, any features needing the FrontPage extensions will not work.

If the user has Windows XP SP2, then any active content with generate security warning, as well as
any thing that requires a web server (or the FP extensions) will not work.

send her the home page and let her see it in IE (or whatever browser) without
images (which will be displayed as boxes with x's in them).

If you both have IE, you could view the home page (or several pages)
in IE, then save the pages as .MHT which will display with all the
images intact.

If your host supports subwebs w/ unique permissions publish it to the subweb created per
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;825451
Your host will have to support subwebs and unique permissions under the FP Server Extensions

Only users w/ the correct userID/password will be able to view it
- When you are ready to go live just publish to the root web

I am currently doing the samething for my cousin who lives out of state. Our
fix for this was signing up with gotomypc.com they have a 30 day free trial
just go there sign up then have your partner log-on to your PC from her
location. She can then view the new website directly from your PC. I think
you can also limit what files or folders she can have access to, not real
sure. But it works great.

No I do not work for them....lol
