Creating and Editing Web Pages


Creating Web Content

Now that the home page is part of the current web, you will create the content for the other pages in the Millennium Celebration Web.

  To edit the Background page

  1. Click the Navigation icon on the Views bar to switch back to Navigation view.
  2. Note that the Folder List now shows the two picture files you saved to the current web. The file Index.htm is the new home page. You can later discard the remaining copy of the home page from your My Documents folder.

    In the Folder List, the file names of the other pages were automatically derived from the page titles you typed into the pages in Navigation view. For this tutorial, we won't change the names.

  3. Double-click the Background page to open it in Page view.
  4. This page will provide some background about the new millennium and the Year 2000 for site visitors. For this tutorial, we have provided this text for you, so you can simply insert it on the page without having to type it.

  5. When the blank page is displayed in Page view, click File on the Insert menu.
  6. In the Select File dialog box, navigate to the folder named Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Tutorial by double-clicking each folder in this path until the Look in box displays the Tutorial folder.
  7. If you downloaded the tutorial files from the www.microsoft.com, navigate to the folder named Fptutor\Samples, or to the folder where you placed the files.

  8. Next, click the Files of type list and click Text Files (*.txt) to display the text files in the Tutorial folder.
  9. FrontPage displays the single file matching the criteria.

  10. Click year2000 in the list, and then click Open.
  11. The text you are inserting isn't saved in HTML format, so FrontPage displays the Convert Text dialog box to let you control how the text will be imported.

  12. In the Convert Text dialog box, click Normal paragraphs with line breaks, and then click OK.
  13. FrontPage imports the text file and places it at the insertion point on the Background page.

  14. On the toolbar, click the Save button to save changes to the Background page.

Next, you will prepare the page titled Destinations. It will tell site visitors about popular travel destinations that many people will visit to celebrate the new millennium. On this page, you will also provide a feedback form that collects travel ideas from people browsing the Millennium Celebration Web.

  To edit the Destinations page

  1. On the toolbar, click the Folder List button to show the Folder List in Page view.
  2. Double-click destinations.htm in the Folder List to open the page in Page view.
  3. Click the Folder List button to hide the Folder List.
  4. When the blank page is displayed in Page view, click File on the Insert menu.
  5. In the Select File dialog box, click the Files of type list, and then click Rich Text Format (*.rtf) to display the formatted text file in the Tutorial folder.
  6. FrontPage displays the file matching the criteria.

  7. Double-click the file events.
  8. Because this type of file contains formatting, FrontPage automatically converts the formatted text to HTML format.

  9. On the toolbar, click the Save button to save changes to the Destinations page.
