Server Extensions and Extended Features


Server Extensions (FP 2000&2002)

The FrontPage Server Extensions extend the functionality available to FrontPage websites.

  • Hit counters
  • Forms: search forms, feedback form, or any kind of forms
  • Table of contents
  • Guestbook
  • Database Result Wizard
  • Discussion 
  • Categories
  • HTTP Publish Tool
  • Open and edit your web site live on the internet

If you want to test functionality that requires FrontPage Server Extensions on your local computer, you need to install a web server, such as Personal Web Server, and FrontPage Server Extensions.


Shared Point (FP 2003)

FrontPage 2003 SharePoint allows you to access the entire set of new functionality in FrontPage 2003, along with improvement to the way you did things in FrontPage 2002 and other previous versions of FrontPage.  When combined, FrontPage 2003 and Windows SharePoint Services eliminate the need for Server Extensions.

Hit Counters

A hit counter displays the number of times a page has been visited. Add a hit counter to your home page so that you and site visitors can see how many times your web site has been visited.

Note. FrontPage hit counter requires your web server to run the FrontPage Server Extensions.

Microsoft FrontPage provides several styles of counters, but you can supply your own number graphics by creating a custom picture in GIF format. The picture must include numbers 0 to 9, evenly spaced.

  1. On the Menu bar, select Insert | Component | Hit Counter(FrontPage 2000) or Insert | Web Component | Hit Counter (FrontPage 2002&2003)
  2. Under Counter Style, click the type of hit counter you want to use. If you click Custom Picture, type the relative location of the GIF file, for example Images/Custom.gif.
  3. [HitCounter] is displayed on the page as a placeholder for the hit counter. To see how the hit counter will appear to site visitors, click the Preview tab, or preview the page in a Web browser.


Search Form

Create a search form to let site visitors search your web for specific words or phrases. FrontPage automatically creates a text index based on the words contained in all of the pages in your web.  When a visitor submits a search form, FrontPage checks the text index and displays a weighted list of hyperlinks to the pages containing the search text.

  1. On the Menu bar, select Insert | Component | Search Form. For FrontPage 2002&2003 users, select Insert | Web Component | Web Search and click Finish.
  2. To create a standard search form based on the FrontPage defaults, click OK. 
  3. If the default search form doesn't fit your needs, you can change the button labels and shorten or widen the one-line text box.  Right-click the search form and select Search Form Properties.


Feedback Form

Create a feedback form page where users can submit comments about your website.

To quickly create a form that collects data:

  • FrontPage 2000: Switch to the Page view. (View > Page).  Go to File > New > Page > Form Page Wizard.
  • FrontPage 2002: Go to File > New > Page or Web. Click "Page Templates" in the right column and select Form Page Wizard.
  • FrontPage 2003: Go to File > New.  Click "More page templates" in the right column and select Form Page Wizard.

This template creates a generic feedback form that you can modify to fit your needs.

To modify the form:

  1. Right-click the form and select Form Properties. 
  2. Select the Send To option, then specify the file or e-mail address to which to send the form results.  To configure the form handler, click Options button.
  3. To apply the Feedback Form to your existing web page, copy the HTML codes into your web page. 

<form action="--WEBBOT-SELF--"method="POST"> ........</form></strong></p> <p> </p> <h2 align="left">Table of Contents

You can create an automatically generated table of contents based on the navigation structure of your web, and pages with hyperlinks that are not included in the navigation structure. A site visitor browsing your web can click any entry in the table to jump to that page or file.

  1. On the menu bar, select Insert | Components | Table of Contents. For FrontPage 2002&2003 users, select Insert | Web Components | Table of Contents.

  2. In the Page URL for starting point of table box, type the relative URL of the page to use as the starting point for the table of contents, or click Browse to locate the page. The starting point determines which pages are leftmost in the table of contents.

  3. To automatically recalculate the table of contents whenever any page in your web is edited, select the Recompute table of contents when any other page is edited check box. Recalculating a table of contents for a large web can be a time-consuming process. If you select this check box, you may find that it takes longer to save pages. If you don't select this check box, you can manually regenerate the table of contents by opening and saving the page containing the table of contents.
