website copy

I was shown here some time ago how to download a copy of my website (for editing) using Frontpage 2000. Can I have this advice again please.

which you access via the file menu.

This will enable you to import the entire site into FP, but for the future I suggest that you set up a fail-safe routine.

As a basic rule you should never be in the position of having to import your own site in order to edit it. The best way to work is to publish the site to your hard drive before publishing it to the server - then you'll always have an up-to-date copy on your computer, as well as on the server. When you want to edit the content, open the hard drive copy, carry out your changes, and click on the 'save' icon on your toolbar. Then (and only then) should you publish the changes to the server.

To summarise:-

1. Import the site into FP

2. Immediately you've done that, publish the entire site to a location on your hard drive (usually inside the 'My webs' folder.

3. Now open the hard drive copy and carry out your edits.

4. Finally, publish the changes to the server.

Carry on like that and you'll never again be in the position of having to import the site.

Thanks Editor, the reason it occurred was because of a reformat. Although I put and it was possible to edit it. I couldn't upload the edited pages. Nevertheless I appreciate the advice and have realised I needed only to look in my previous postings to find what was said before. Thats the sum total of my ignorance.

thanks again
