Chapter 2. FrontPage Basics > Creating, Opening, and Closing Web Sites

Creating, Opening, and Closing Web Sites

Any collection of related, linked Web pages—or even a single home page—is considered a Web site. FrontPage automatically organizes any documents and graphics you create for your site. As long as you work within FrontPage, you can move your pages around and FrontPage will maintain the hyperlinks among the pages and files— saving you from the plague of broken links.

To create a new blank Web site

1.
Choose File > New > Page or Web or click the New icon and choose Web from the drop-down menu (Figure 2.84).

Figure 2.84. To create a new Web site Choose File > New > Page or Web or click the New icon and choose Web from the drop-down menu.


2.
If you chose File > New > Page or Web in step 1, a task pane will appear on the right side of the main window. Click the Empty Web icon (Figure 2.85).

3.
When the Web Site Templates dialog box appears (Figure 2.86), the Empty Web icon will automatically be selected. If you want to store the Web site somewhere other than the folder listed in the Specify the location of the new web text window, click Browse and navigate to your preferred folder.

4.
When the Web Site Templates dialog box reappears, click OK and the Create New Web dialog box will appear briefly (Figure 2.87). FrontPage’s main window will appear completely blank (Figure 2.88), which may leave you wondering if you have done something wrong. Click the Navigation icon in the Views Bar, then click the New Page icon to automatically create a blank home page (Figure 2.89). You’re ready to begin adding pages to the Web site or content to individual pages. For details on structuring your Web site, see page 48.

Figure 2.87. The Create New Web dialog box appears briefly while FrontPage generates the Web site.
