Read Adding a Date Field to my Page by Ron @ 1/10/2016
Hi again,
In addition to my last reply here is what I see in FrontPage 2000 HTML tab after I pasted what you suggested in your message:


<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 4.0">
<meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
<title>New Page 2</title>

<body bgcolor="#FFCC66">

<p><form action="#"></p>
<p><input type="text" id="Day" name="Day"></p>
<p><input type="text" id="Month"
<p><input type="button" onclick="generatelink(); return
false" id="generateLink" name="generateLink"
value="Generate Link" class="button"></p>
<p><div id="generatedlink"></p>
<p><a id="link" href="">Open App</a></p>

<p> </p>

<p> </p>

You don't need all the p tags.

Hi Alex,
I am using FrontPage 2000.
I copied the string you had on your message and pasted it in a new "test"page, saved it as an html file. I then previewed it and all that was displayed was the string that I had copied and pasted copied from your message.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

There is probably a view in FP that is source or design,
Paste it into Source inside your usual

Thank you Alex,
As I am not well versed in HTML language, I just copied the HTML info from you message and pasted it in a new page just to see what would come up. Actually nothing happened except that all the HTML language was displayed.
As I said I am not too knowledgable in this filed and wonder if that was what I was supposed to do

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Are you saving the page as a .html or was it .txt?

You would likely need a base HTML page made with the html, body tags etc.
You can see how to do this in either the FrontPage or HTML courses or even the B1 of my HTA tips.

I would like to place a field on my front page where one would just enter the date and month  (no year) and click on it to see what happened in history that day. I will have 365 individual html files, one for each day of the year. Each file would be between 300 and 800 KB.  I would have a titled line such as: Today in History. Below that I would have another line that says: Enter date and month (no year). I would like a field below that to input that date & month. Then if one clicks on that field, (or even better when it is finally entered) up would come the history html file I created. How can I do this?

Reply from Alex Hedley:

If the files already exist and are static you could build the URL dynamically,


<form action="#">
  <input type="text" id="Day" name="Day">
  <input type="text" id="Month" name="Month">
  <input type="button" onclick="generatelink(); return false" id="generateLink" name="generateLink" value="Generate Link" class="button">

<div id="generatedlink">
    <a id="link" href="">Open App</a>


<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
function generatelink() {
    var day = document.getElementById("Day").value;
    var month = document.getElementById("Month").value;
    var link = "" + Day + "_" + Month + ".html";
    var a = document.getElementById("link");
    a.href = link;
    a.textContent = link;
