Chapter 7. Creating Pages with Frontpage... > Understanding Templates Folders

Understanding Templates Folders

As indicated, FrontPage stores your custom templates in their own folders in the C:\Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\FrontPage\Pages folder (Windows 9x/Me) or in C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Microsoft\FrontPage\Pages folder (Windows 2000 Professional). If you examine such a template folder, you'll see that it has a TEM extension, which is unusual for folder names. However, it's this extension that makes the template accessible through the New command, so you should not rename the folder to remove its TEM extension. If the extension isn't there, the template won't appear in the New Page list box.

The template file, which is simply an HTML file, is located within the folder. The template folder name must match this file's name. An INF file is also in the folder. This is a text file that stores the name and description of the template, as well as the pathnames of any separate files (such as image files) required by the template file. No official limit exists on the number of templates you can have.
