Changing my website using Frontpage2000

  daisy2bell 21:16 29 Mar 2006

I've got an existing website which I made using Frontpage 2000. I now wish to change it again using frontpage 2000, but this time using frames.
I can't actualy change the existing page to one with frames, so I will have to do a completely new one.
As this is the ist page (index.html) will this cause a problem with search engines ( I have a fairly good ranking) when I take the existing page down and replace it with a brand new one, even though it will be called the same.

Thanks John
The reason I want frames, is that I want to seperate the links from the main page IE have the links on the extreme left hand side. I'm only talking of 2 frames.
Even if I kept to exactly the same text and content as my current site would the search engine ranking be effected?

You could create a table at the left side and that should solve the problem. Either create a table (say) 50 pixels wide, or do the whole page as a table. This means you can place anything anywhere and be fairly sure it will appear where you want it to without having to worry about which browser people are using (Some browsers see pages differently and display oddly)


The easier way is to add a margin which can appear on all or just one page. This can be at top, side, bottom and in any combination. This means the browser only has to load the info once so it speeds it up.

Thanks JBX22
I'll play around with the table / margin and see what it looks like

I keep reading this on a mchine that doesn't have FP on it, and it's ages from I used it - so I'm guessing a bit - but along the top of the page (I think it is under "Format" but I may be wrong) if you show all the menu options there is an option that says "shared borders" - that's the one you want. It allows you to put common info on one page and automatically replicate it across all pages. You can then specify which borders to keep or drop form any specific page.

I have tried to view your site, both with and without the frame links. Without, and it loads straight away, fast and easy to access. With frames, and it does not load at all. It appears that the site is down which would of course answer that, but the no frames site is very quick indeed, and that of course brings the visitor in.

Sorry it took so long to reply, ( computer problems)

I have done the site differently now.
Could you please check it out again and let me know if it loads faster. You might need to refresh the page to get the newest one up.
