How to Publish to using Microsoft® FrontPage® 98
How to open your FrontPage web hosted with Web Spinners® for first use.
Connect to the Internet
Start FrontPage 98
From the "Getting Started" Menu click [More Webs] button
In the "Select or Specify Web Server Location" box type:
the first 48 - 72 hours you'll need to use http://UserName.Web-Spinners.com
and then click [List Webs] button.
Select <Root Web> or Web you'd like to open and click [OK] button. If you have
Microsoft networking installed you will be prompted for a user name and password. Enter
the User Name and Password you requested upon setup/registration with us.
Your web will now begin to open with you in your main folder looking at at least the
default home page titled "Default.htm" and an IMAGES folder.
From FrontPage Explorer Tools Menu select "Web Settings". Under the
"Configuration" tab enter a friendly name in place of <ROOT WEB> .
Under the "Advanced" tab check the option box to "Show documents in
hidden folders". Click [OK] button to close with changes and then Refresh Web when
prompted. Until you do this you'll not be able to see any special files or folders that
may be in your FrontPage web.
Select Tools Menu from FrontPage Explorer and Click "Recalculate Hyperlinks",
and click "YES" when prompted. Until this is completed initially some FrontPage
components (BOTS) will not function or not function properly.
You can import web files from your machine in a variety of methods including Drag and
Drop between Windows Explorer and FrontPage Explorer to quickly get your files uploaded.
Your home/root page in any folder should be default.htm. If this is not present the
Server will look for index.htm, and then default.asp. If none of these exist it will
return an error to Browsers as we have disabled directory "browsing/sniffing"
for security reasons. If you need another name for your root pages such as
"default.cfm" or "index.html" please let us know and we can make
changes to precedence and additions.
