Are you publishing your pages?

 

If you have used your Frontpage program to create a form, counter, search, message board or any other dynamic component you must make sure that you publish your web to your account here. Using standard FTP either with your Frontpage program or with a simple FTP program will prevent your features from working properly.

 

When you publish your pages through FrontPage you will be asked for a location. This should be the full URL for your website (eg: http://www.example.com)

 

 

 

Are your Frontpage extension installed properly?

 

If you are missing all or just some of your FrontPage Extensions, your FrontPage website features will not work properly. If you believe that you are missing extension files, try repairing them from your account's /admin under Tools -> FrontPage Extensions.

 

 

 

How do you link to your Frontpage form/search/message board pages?

 

When you are using an FrontPage form, search, or message board it is imperative that you link to the feature in the correct manner. Any links taking users to pages with these features must contains the "www" in the address (eg :http://www.example.com...) This way no matter how anyone has accessed your website, they will be routed to the component page with the address that will allow this feature to function correctly.
