Designers Corner

Don't feel hamstrung by the documents created by the wizards or templates. These are simply a starting point, ideas to consider, and you should plan extensive changes to what FrontPage initially creates. You'll want to completely rethink the Customer Support web, for example, because every business has unique service needs. You'll want to add pages and even full sections, and you'll find that some you simply don't need. But when you make changes, remember to ensure that the navigation pages work after each change.

You'll also want to customize the way the web works. For example, as shown above, the Customer Support web includes a bug report page. If you decide to keep this area, make sure that you modify the form fields to ask for specific bug information, and also to direct the customers' reports to the appropriate personnel. You might also want to ensure that only registered customers have access to the bug reports (if everyone on the web has access to it, you're liable to get lots of prank reports). One way to protect a single page or two such as this is to create a subweb called, say, /bugreports, move these two pages into that web, and restrict browsing permissions to registered users only. If you do something like this, however, be sure to provide a link from a relevant page.
