SUMMARY

This article describes how to create a new web in Microsoft FrontPage.

If necessary, consult your server documentation for more information.

MORE INFORMATION

FrontPage 97

  1. From the Start menu, point to Programs, and then click Microsoft FrontPage.

    The FrontPage Explorer starts.
  2. In the "Getting Started With Microsoft FrontPage" dialog box, click to select one of the three options under the "Create A New FrontPage Web" section. Click OK.

    If you selected the "From a Wizard or Template" option, the New FrontPage Web dialog box appears. In the Template Or Wizard list, select the template or wizard you want to use, and then click OK. The Web Template dialog box appears.
  3. In the "Web Server or File Location" box, type or select the Web server or directory you want to use.

    If you installed a local Web server and the FrontPage Server Extensions successfully, the Web name already appears in this box. Select the default and go to step 4.

    NOTE: You can also specify "Localhost" (without the quotation marks) as the server location.

    If you did not install a Web server locally and you are not working with a remote Web server, type the drive and directory where you want to store the Web, and then click OK.
  4. In the "Name of New FrontPage Web" box, type the name you want. The Web name should be one word and should not include spaces.
  5. If the "Name and Password Required" dialog box appears, type your name and password in the appropriate boxes, and then click OK.

    The FrontPage Explorer builds the new Web. The Web address is displayed in the title bar.
