Publishing Web Content Through Web Folders

Like all Microsoft Office 2003 applications, FrontPage also supports Web publishing through a facility called Web Folders. Web Folders are HTTP locations that show up in My Network Places. Web Folders also appear when you click the My Network Places desktop icon or the My Network Places icon on the My Places bar of Office applications. Here’s the procedure for using Web Folders from the desktop:

Double-click the My Network Places icon on your desktop.

If the Web location you want is already listed, double-click it. If not, add it by double-clicking the Add Network Place icon.


Any locations you add to Web Folders must be Web servers running Windows SharePoint Services, the FrontPage Server Extensions, WebDAV, or FTP. Otherwise, the Web Folders software can’t communicate with the locations.

Add the Web site as a Network Place per the resulting wizard’s instructions.

The Web Folders window now resembles Figure 16-17. Instead of folder locations on your local disk or file server, this window shows Internet addresses.

Figure 16-17. Office XP’s Web Folders feature handles files on remote FrontPage Web servers as easily as those on a local disk.

To transfer files and folders to and from the remote Web server, drag them in and out just as you would in Windows Explorer.
