Microsoft FrontPage 2003

Creating a Web Site

Microsoft FrontPage has a feature that allows you to create a web site in which you can organize and design your web pages. By creating a FrontPage web site for your web pages, you will be able to take advantage of FrontPage site maintenance features. The following instructions will explain this process.

Once you have created a web site, it is recommended that you open the web site before working with the files or before adding new pages. When you open a site in Microsoft FrontPage, you do not open a single folder, rather you open a web site folder that contains all the files for your site.

  1. From the File menu, select Open Site...

  2. Using the Look in pull-down list, locate the web site that you want to open

  3. Click OPEN
    If you open a web site or folder that was not created using Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003, you will be prompted to make the site a FrontPage site.
    If you already have a web site open, each subsequent Web site will open in a new FrontPage window.
