Exploring the lesson
Creating a Web from a FrontPage template or wizard
There are many templates and wizards that you can use to design a Web in FrontPage.

Exploring design features in the header, the title and the buttons.
Creating an empty FrontPage Web
A FrontPage Web is a collection of HTML pages, images, documents, and other files and folders that make up a Web site. Authors can create, delete, open, edit, and close FrontPage Webs using the FrontPage Explorer and the FrontPage Editor on a computer. FrontPage Webs can be stored on a remote Web server, a Web server running on the same computer as the client program, or in the client computer’s file system.
When you name a Web, the name becomes part of the address. Careful thought should be given to the name.
Creating a new Web
Adding and deleting a page
Adding a page in the FrontPage Explorer
Adding pages in the FrontPage Explorer is quick and easy. You can add them at the same level as the home page or below the home page. You can move them around, and the navigation links, shown as blue lines, show where they are in the Web.
You will add seven pages, moving five below the home page and keeping two on the same level.
Deleting a page
There are several ways to delete a page. Only delete one of the pages so you have six new pages when you continue.
Deleting pages from the Navigation view
Opening and closing a Web page in the FrontPage Editor
You can close the home page in the FrontPage Editor. Before you close it, the FrontPage Editor prompts you to save any changes to pages. Use the Close command to end a session in the FrontPage Editor.
Closing the Web in the FrontPage Editor
Organizing your pages
Because the home page serves as the gateway to your Web site, you should organize your Web site carefully. Using the Navigation view in the FrontPage Explorer to set up a flowchart to group your pages, you can easily arrange your topic. You may want to include some of the following pages: parent link, student activity, staff information, student resource, links to search engines, school schedules, school curriculum, student council news, and what’s new.
Creating a navigation chart
You can create a navigation structure for the current FrontPage Web by designing and organizing pages in the Navigation view in the FrontPage Explorer. FrontPage creates navigation bars based on the navigation structure and then inserts the navigation bars into the shared borders of these pages.
