-=PCTechTalk=- Re: webpage programs/dreamweaver, frontpage

Gman,

I just downloaded a webpage from my website on the filebox and saved it to 
"My Docs" .  I then tried opening it with frontpage out of curiosity to try 
adding a table to the page, and it came up with a little box asking me for 
user permission from the filebox site.  Why does it need my user and 
password to edit the page if I am not editing it while in the filebox or am 
not uploading it to there?  Is it just I have it set that way somewhere?  I 
would like to be able to experiment with editing pages without changing what 
is in the filebox.

thanks


Christine

Cristy,
    Many web producing apps will add their own program name within a page's
META info.  Download one of the pages that you know was made with it and
open it up in WordPad to see if this info is included.

    As for learning a more complicated HTML editing app, the more popular of
them include FrontPage and Dreamweaver.  However, FrontPage has since been
replaced by MS and, therefore is no longer produced or included with certain
Office versions.  The replacement app's name escapes me at the moment, but a
quick search should easily bring it up.  The thing about FrontPage is that
it relies on external resources to render its interactive abilities called
FrontPage Extensions.  These extensions much be installed directly on the
server used to host the site or else the special effects won't work.  For
this reason (as well as a few others that I won't expand on here), it's
probably best for you to look to Dreamweaver for what you need to do.  Like
all Adobe products, there is a learning curve.  So, I would suggest you get
yourself a "Dreamweaver for Dummies" book or something similar to help with
your progress.  I absolutely LOVE the 'Dummies' series for their ability to
explain complicated subjects in simplified terms.

Peace,
G
