Commonly Asked Questions
- Q: How can I play a sound file when a page opens?
- A: Adding a background sound to a page is easy to do in FrontPage
2000, but it only works for Internet Explorer 4.0 or later Web browsers.
First, import the sound file into your
Next, open the page in Page view,
right-click the page, then select the Page Properties menu command.
The Page Properties dialog box will open.
The General tab includes a
section labeled "Background Sound." Click the Browse button
to choose the sound file that will play when the page opens.
Check the Forever box if you want

- Q: I am about to pull my hair out. I am trying to set up navigation
bars and when I create them on my index.htm page they look fine. But
when I go to the other pages I have created and create the navigation bar,
it changes the index.htm and makes the navigation bar something else.
I have a feeling that FP is somehow trying to "autocorrect"

A: It sounds like you're making a change to the buttons or links that
are included on a navigation bar. Some of the choices on the Navigation
Bar Properties dialog box will cause different buttons to appear on
different pages -- even though they all share the same border.
Try setting the navigation bar to Child
Pages Under Home and click the Home Page check box. That's what I
do to make a navigation bar the same on all Web pages. I used the technique
here to make the lefthand buttons the same everywhere.
