Can anyone help me? I am using FrontPage 2003. I have created a test website (not published. I have created buttons and hotspots with hyperlinks to other pages in my web, which appear to work in "Design View", and are shown in my "hyperlinks view" and "Navigation view". However when I got into "Preview View" and click on them they don't work. Should they work? And if so what might I be doing wrong? Any help would be gratefully received.

If it's anything like NOF, Preview simply allows you to see a finished page and you have to make a local or online publish before any links will work. Is there a local publish option?

im not the best at web design at all i could say, have you put all th pictures in the same folder and make sure you dont have any spaces becuase some free web hosting sites dont allow any spacing and its very annoying when you have to enter all the links again.

ade.h and Mr Mark Nolan, thank you so much for responding to me I really appreciate your help. I will look into whether I have a local publish option and the spacing issue. Thanks again

Try 'Preview in Browser' from File Menu. Should then be able to see if all works as it should.

a) publish the site to your server

OR

b) Preview the pages in your browser.

Any of the special FrontPage components like hover buttons, scrolling text, or discussion forums will not work until/unless the site is published to a server that has the FrontPage extensions installed.
