Chapter 3. Managing Web Sites > Opening a FrontPage-Based Web Site

Opening a FrontPage-Based Web Site

The first step in working with a FrontPage-based Web site is to open it. Here’s one way to do this:

1.
Choose Open Site from the File menu. The Open Site dialog box shown in Figure 3-2 appears.

Figure 3-2. The Open Site dialog box is very similar to the Open File dialog box shown in Figure 2-13. Rather than opening a single file, however, this box opens a group view of many files.


2.
Locate the site you want using either of the following techniques:

  • To locate a disk-based Web site, click the My Recent Documents, Desktop, My Documents, or My Computer icon.

  • To locate a server-based Web site, click the My Network Places icon.

Note

The first time you try to open a server-based Web site, its server might not appear in the My Network Places list. FrontPage can’t display a list of Web servers in your environment, because your environment might be the entire Internet! If the folder you want doesn’t appear in the My Network Places list, just type its URL in the Site Name box, and then click Open. This both opens the site and adds it to the list for next time.

Note

In folder listings, the icon for a FrontPage-based Web site looks like a folder with a globe on it. This visually distinguishes FrontPage sites from regular folders.

3.
Double-click the name of the Web site, or select the name and click the Open button.
