Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 – Now available via MS Support

FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 web download

Microsoft have recently announced the following about the FrontPage Server Extensions 2002

"The FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 web download is not available
anymore from the Microsoft web sites. This is due to the fact that the
mainstream support for FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 web download
which follows the Office XP/FrontPage 2002 life cycle expired on
7/11/2006. The following article explains the timelines:

http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?p1=1902 

However, we understand that customers might need this download in
situations where existing FPSE2002 installations are hampered in one way
or the other. Considering this, it may be possible to obtain this
download for reinstallation purposes only if you call MS support."

NOTE: This is a No Pay Support Incident

FrontPage 2002 Tutorials – FrontPage Subwebs and Permissions

 


FrontPage Subwebs and Permissions

A named subdirectory, which is called a subweb, is a complete web site nested inside
another web site. The site that contains a subweb is called a root or parent web. Since
the first version of FrontPage, subwebs have been supported, and with FrontPage 2000, the
concept of nested subwebs was introduced. A site administrator / Webmaster can use subwebs
to organise the site logically, streamline work and delegate parts of the site to others.
First, it is crucial to understand the difference between a folder and a subweb. If you
open a web that contains both folders and subwebs, you can see the way the two are
represented.

  • Adding an external link to a link bar based on the navigation structure
  • Converting a folder to a subweb
  • Converting a subweb (child web) to a folder
  • Deleting a web site or subweb
  • Protecting subwebs with passwords
  • Other Sever types

Search engine optimization techniques – SEO – for your FrontPage Site

 

SEO for your FrontPage site

If you have not optimized
all the pages of your site, it’s not worth submitting it to the search engines, so lets
get busy. Adding information to META tags is useful for describing your web page; it can
help search engines find and index your page, as well as document information such as how
your page was created and what theme it is using. However there are other factors that
make a difference in getting listed with search engines and we will discuss tools to help
and methods you can employ.

  • Page ranking methods to employ
  • Meta Tags
  • The Custom Tab
  • Tags to use
  • FrontPage tools and add ons for search engine and meta tag optimization.
  • Other tools for search engine optimisation and meta tags
  • Search Engines you should submit to
  • What other search engine optimization techniques (SEO) can you employ?
  • Tags to use to deter ‘some’ search engines listing your graphics
  • Search engine/meta tag resource links

How to have your Internet Explorer Favourites or Netscape Bookmarks available on your own site and sort them for broken links


Best of all you can check out your favourites collection for dead links using the FrontPage Reports feature. Merely select the ‘In Page’ column to sort the files into alphabetically order and then select all the _bookmark.htm (or whatever you named your file) files. You can do this by selecting the first file holding down shift and then selecting the last file. Or to select individual files hold down the control key and click on those files you want selected.
