Which S/W? My Webspace provider doesn't allow FP

  AngeTheHippy 23:28 30 Jul 2004

Disn't know until I'd signed up that although I get 20Mb webspace (ok with me) the provider doesn't allect FrontPage built sites. I'ce seen Dreamweaver and find it totally mind boggling, so can anyone suggest a FP-type (wysiwyg) software please?

Thanks loads,

Are you sure they just don't allow you to use Fronpage Extensions - which are a few of the extra bells and whistles unique to FP - such as some text effects or form handling? Otherwise I can't see any reason why you can't use it to build a basic HTML site.

PS what is the name of the webspace host?

I'm with Eclipse.... when I called the helpline he specifically said they didn't support (?) FP - unless he got it wrong...

Hmm, which features of FP are you wanting? If you just want to upload your website you can use a proper FTP program such as WS FTP LE click here

If the server doesn't support FP extensions, you'll still be able to see most of your site, they're just going to be some features such as those mentioned by Patr100 which will not appear.

that doesn't provide the FP extensions nowadays. although you may have to pay a small fee. For everything to work 100% with FP it should run on a Windows server with the extensions installed, although you can run FP sites without the extensions being present - you just won't be able to use some of the better components like discussion forums and form handlers.

Otherwise you could try NetObjects Fusion - it's an excellent application, and in its latest version it's every bit as powerful as DreamWeaver. The learning curve isn't nearly as steep, and you have slightly less in terms of bells and whistles but we're splitting hairs to be honest, the power to create stunning web sites is all there.

Eclipse DOES support FrontPage,its my ISP and here is my site(created with FP,and uploaded via "SmartFTP" a free FTP app)I'm also allowed to upload over 150Mbs to it(although it states on the T&C agreement,its only 50Mbs)which I discovered by accident when I uploaded a zip file to check my links in the pages. :-)

coincidence, I d/loaded SmartFTP to try and upload my site to Eclipse. Am very confused (don't take much!!) as I've not used FTP client before. How do I upload using this?

ps - your daughter's a cutey! I only have sons...

I input the setting for my eclipse account in SFTP as follows...

Account= myfiles.eclipse.co.uk

Login = (your eclipse email addy)

Password = (your email accounts password)

The webpage I created with FP,I File/Save in... and create a folder JUST for the FP page.Then I launch SFTP,Connect to my site,left click on the folder in the top box,then right click in amongst the files within this folder,select "Upload/direct/Select Files..."and browse to the FP folder,uploading EVERYTHING from within.The result is as seen at the link above.I knocked that site up as a quick experiment to assist another PCA user in getting his site up and running,his site now makes mine look like a complete amateur created it(I did/am)Here's his site now click here :-)
