Microsoft FrontPage 101
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on Google Plus Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost

This is the perfect class for anyone who knows nothing about building Web pages, or has used FrontPage to build or edit some simple Web sites, but needs to learn how to build a Web site properly. We will take you from knowing nothing to building a full fledged company Web site from scratch (without the wizards) in a about an hour and a half. Yes, this course runs a little longer than our usual hour. It was tough to cut anything out of this one!

I have windows 8.1 and it doesn't look like I have front page. I didn't realize I needed it. what do you suggest.

Download Microsoft Expression Web. It's very similar to FrontPage and it's FREE.

Microsoft FrontPage XP Comment from Alonzo Dock @ 11/11/2013
Where can I get Microsoft FrontPage XP and will Expression web work for this class

Reply from Richard Rost:

Microsoft no longer sells or supports FrontPage. Yes, Expression Web (which is FREE) will work with 90% of this class material. I plan on updating the course for Expression in the near future. You'll get a free upgrade when I do.

my computer have Windows XP 2002 and Microsoft Office 2007 but I can't find the FrontPage

Reply from Richard Rost:

FrontPage did not come with Office 2007. I believe 2003 was the last version that included it. Now Microsoft has "Expression Web" which is basically the new name for FrontPage.

I can't find the Microsoft Front page in my Windows XP!

Reply from Richard Rost:

Did you buy it? It doesn't come WITH Windows. It's a separate program that comes with some editions of Microsoft Office 2000 to 2003 (Pro, I believe). If you bought it and installed it it should be on your Start menu.

Hi everyone, I am creating a database and I want to use the web browser as in the front with Access in the back to hold the data, but I am having problem with connecting the web browser to the database.
Can anyone help me though this? I will be grateful.
Thanks for your assistance.

Reply from Richard Rost:

Oscar, I've got an entire seminar based on this. It's not something quick that I can just answer in the forums. See this web database seminar for details.

Comment from Richard Rost @ 4/1/2009
Ursa, I still use Frontpage a lot. Even though I have Expression Web installed on my "main" work PC, I find that I have to go back to Frontpage often because Expression tends to muck up my old web pages with lots of CSS styles that I don't want. Will my Frontpage classes help with Expression? Sure... but there are a lot of differences between the two. Look for an Expression class soon.

I was doubtfull as to the relevence of the lessons as they are a little old, However having no real experience I have found them to be infomative pulling together the little I have picked up and introducing some new and simple lessons. I look forward to taking the next lesson.

Since Frontpage is not really used too much anymore, can this class help with Microsoft Expression?

Hover Buttons are covered in FrontPage 102. If you're getting nothing but a red "X" in the box it could be because your FrontPage Server Extensions aren't installed (or working properly)... or if you used an IMAGE for your Hover Button and the image is missing or bad.
