about frontpage 2000 and link to resources

ok ,so i have found that website builder is very limited and am now gonna learn how to use frontpage 2000.
i have activated the frontpage extensions ok.
but i have found that the link "microsofts online developer resources" at the bottom of the "website settings" page doesnt work.
is this something that can be sorted from here or do i need to write a ticket?
and any links to info/sites on the net about "how to use frontpage 2000" would be much appreciated.
thanks

Google is your friend.... Wink

Loads of info and online tutorials on frontpage, just do a search for 'frontpage 2000' in google.

Microsofts developer home page is http://msdn.microsoft.com/ . To find info on frontpage just click on the developer centers link on the top menu bar.

Some of the portal pages are out of date and cosmetic changes are difficult to do easily. Things like broken links and page updates are waiting for the new portal software to be intrioduced which should be soon.

Don't use it and never will - too many security issues with it in the past (and present) so can't help.

Any reason why you chose FP? There are loads of free and cheap HTML editors and web design software around and not all hosting / ISPs support FP extensions which you would need if you moved your site somewhere else.

I guess I just prefer proper HTML rather than FP.

I maybe able to help you with that prob.
Try selecting the paragraphs you want ajusted, then right click, select paragraph from the shortcut menu.
A box should have opened showing, a line spacing drop down list on the middle right of the box.

I have frontpage 2002 with all the updates, so I cant be certain if you will see the same as I do Shockedops:

I find that as long as I have the content, a web page or even a site can be made in about an hour, if your not to fussy Cheesy

This site is for all the updates you need regarding frontpage
I hope its of some use

For a simple and easy to use system to get a web page up and running, you can use Microsoft Publisher. Just create a page as normal and "Save as HTML".

I started off learning html, but after a while I found it hard going to the point I gave up, and used the easy way, I use a few programs like web page construction 7 kit , in the wysiwug format, but I found it all a bit of a drag.

I'M quite the llama when it come to web stuff Cheesy

For me, frontpage 2002 was a life saver, some people love it and some hate it. Cool
You can also use xara webstyle 3. and 4 as a plug in for frontpage, and that give you a lot more choice regarding styles.

Frontpage can also be used for a layout for standared html.
If I had a brain then I would probaly use dreamweaver and flash but as I dont Cheesy its back to frontpage Tongue
