This is the most common problem new FrontPage users have when creating
their first website. People aren't aware that you must create a web first. Old
(very old!) software used to make us create the file first before we could use
it. FrontPage is kind of like that. You have to create a web before you can
add a page to it.
Upon opening FrontPage, by default a blank page appears. This can be
misleading. It is not a new web!
In order to create a new website, you need to follow these few simple steps:
Step 1. Choose FileŕNewŕWeb.
Step 2. From the Task Pane, choose One Page Web Site.
The Web Site Templates dialog box opens, as shown below. Since you have chosen One Page Web
Site it is pre-selected on the general tab. Specify a location on your local
hard drive to store the new website. By default, the program suggests the “My
Web Sites" folder and gives a name that is sequential to the previous website
you created. Who knows why they do that? Who makes the same website time after
You can change the path to your desired location, and you can choose a name
that best describes your new website. After you have typed this information
You now have a one-page website that can be edited locally and published
remotely. From this point you can add all the pages you want, add content,
menus, graphics, and make the edits to customize your site!
