Commonly Asked Questions

  • Q: I am confused by the illustration on Page 13 of the folder list -- I cannot get it to appear as it does in the book. Folders appear but files all appear to the right in a Contents of Folder window. How do you get folders and files in one list as you show?
    A: There are two ways to view files and folders. The one you are describing above is the Folders view.
          Figure 1.3 on Page 13 shows something else -- the Folders list. You can see this list no matter what view you are in. Click the View, Folders List menu command to open or close the Folders list. I usually keep the Folders list open at all times while working in FrontPage 2000.

          Another technique is more advanced, but it's useful when you know your way around FrontPage 2000:
          After creating a corporate presence Web, click the Tools, Web Settings menu command. The Web Settings dialog box will open. Click the Parameters tab to see a list of items such as the company's address, phone number, short name, and long name. Click an item to change its value.
          Once you have set up these items the way you like, close the Web Settings dialog box by clicking the OK button.
          To insert one of these items on a Web page, click the Insert, Component, Substitution menu command. Choose the item you want to insert from the list box that appears.
