The Discussion Web Wizard

The procedure for creating webs based on one particular FrontPage wizard, the Corporate Presence Wizard, is covered in Chapter 26, "Using Scripts in Your Web Page." Explorer offers a second wizard, the Discussion Web Wizard, and it deserves a close look as well. Its purpose and requirements are considerably different from and, in some ways, more advanced than the Corporate Presence Wizard. The discussion web creates an area where readers can participate in a forum on a topic of their choice and, as such, demands some special considerations at the time of creation.

Creating a discussion web from scratch requires an intimate knowledge of FrontPage forms. These are covered in Chapter 11, "Using Components, Forms, and Interactive Page Templates." Creating one from the Discussion Web Wizard, however, requires none of this knowledge—at least not in the initial creation stage. FrontPage's forms features let documents created with FrontPage cooperate with the Web server in a fully interactive way, and the Discussion Web Wizard directs these forms into a specific and organized use.
