Read an Excerpt

Excerpt from

Chapter 1: Creating a Web Site

FrontPage 2002 is a program that empowers even the most inexperienced computer user with the tools to create and launch a Web site or Web page. From the planning stages through the development process, this chapter is designed to familiarize you with the terminology and overall operation of FrontPage. Subsequent chapters discuss the specifics of site management and the details of web design and execution.

This chapter takes you through the planning stages, gets you up and running on the program, discusses the virtues and limitations of templates, and summarizes the various views. You are introduced to hyperlinks, HTML, Wizards, Mother page, Child page, Parent page, and the other commonly encountered features of designing a Web site using FrontPage. You will also learn about more aesthetic design considerations, such as the use of themes in site development.

Before you begin developing your Web site in FrontPage, there are several issues to consider and a few decisions to make. First, of course, is the question of what type of Web page or Web site you want to build. What is the focus of your design? Are you looking to create a personal page or site? Maybe you want to create a business site. Perhaps you're a hobbyist, anxious to display your extensive knowledge and imagery on your favorite subject, or a collector who wants to show off your best pieces in a personal, online museum.

Tip: Frontpage 2002 uses "web" to mean Web site.

After you've decided the kind of Web page or Web site you want to produce, you should consider the question of content. Stagnant sites will not draw repeat visitors, and if you want to generate traffic, you will have to update the material on a regular basis. Do you intend to generate all this content on your own, or will you be recruiting other people to produce the content? Content creation is usually the most overlooked aspect of Web design, but unless your ambition is limited to producing something such as an online family log, with photos of family and pets, birthdates, and a list of everyone's hobbies and interests, creating content might constitute your single greatest challenge.

Attracting and growing a vibrant base of visitors to your Web site or Web page requires you to have a good idea of who will make up your audience. You need to consider issues of demographics-who is interested in your Web site, how old are they, and so on. Are you aiming at surfers with a casual interest in your subject matter, or are you focusing on the expert audience?

After you've dealt with these important matters, you need to decide whether you intend to work from a template or create your site from scratch. All but the most experienced users should begin with one of the templates provided with FrontPage. These templates offer a satisfying variety of formats representing the most popular Web site styles. You can also customize a template to your specific needs by replacing the headers, textual arrangements, or graphic elements.

After you've familiarized yourself with the basics of Web site creation and maintenance, you can become more adventurous...

Working with Navigation View

The Navigation view structures the pages of a web in the form of a flowchart. The web is displayed in a hierarchical format, with the home page, or Mother page, at the top of the chart. The pages that branch off directly from the home page (Parent page) are considered Child pages of the home page.

Any page that links directly to the home page is a Child page, but it can also be a Parent page if it, in turn, produces Child pages that link to it. Each page that opens one tier below the page it is linked to is a Child page. The terms Parent and Child page are therefore relational in nature. The higher page in the hierarchy will always be the parent to any linked lower page, which will always be the child. Therefore, a second-level page can be both the Child of a page and the Parent page of a lower-level Child page.

Navigational view provides an easy way to view your pages. It also provides the easiest method for re-arranging the order of your pages, or creating new Parent pages. You can reposition a page in your web by dragging a page.

Applying a Theme to a Web Page

While the templates provide a nice structure and underpinning for your site, they can sometimes look a little generic. Using Themes, you can personalize your web with the use of color, banners, buttons, and bullets.

Initially, a site made from a template will probably be adequate for your needs, but as you visit more sites and become more familiar with the Internet, you will notice telltale indications of template-based sites.

Themes are crucial in building an original, distinctive site. When your needs become more sophisticated, no template will suit all your needs. Using themes is the most accessible and user-friendly method to enhance your web.

Format a Web Page Using a Theme

1. Choose Format D Theme. The Themes dialog box opens. The default theme is Profile.
2. Decide whether you want the theme to apply to All Pages or Selected Page(s), and then click the corresponding option in the upper-left corner of the window.
3. Select a theme. The theme's banner, buttons, and headline styles appear in preview window.
4. Click the check boxes to select the options that enable you to further modify the theme: Vivid Colors (sharpens colors within the theme), Active Graphics (graphics with a semi-3-D quality that cause the buttons and text to "pop"), Background Picture (places either a shade or an image as the background), and Apply Using Cascading Style Sheet (CSS ) (lines up all options and introduces buttons and other style-based features into the page). Experiment with these options to see the style change in the preview window.
5. Click the Modify button to display additional options. Click the Colors, Graphics, or Text buttons to modify the theme. Experiment with each of these options to see the changes reflected in the preview window...

This book offers a simple visual approach to learning Microsoft FrontPage 2002. Designed for the beginner who may find the complexity of the FrontPage program intimidating, Microsoft FrontPage 2002 Simply Visual uses a highly visual, step-by-step format to present the fundamental tasks that any new user needs in order to get "up and running" as quickly as possible on the FrontPage program that is the industry standard.

How This Book Is Organized

Microsoft FrontPage 2002 Simply Visual is designed to be an easy-to-read and easy-to-use reference tool that helps you get your work done quickly and efficiently in a straightforward way. Each chapter is organized by tasks. Each task gives you information that is essential to performing the task. For each operation, you'll see what commands to enter and which options to select.

This book contains eleven chapters. You'll learn the essentials for creating, enhancing, publishing, and managing Web sites with the FrontPage 2002. Chapter 1 covers tasks for creating a Web site. Chapter 2 covers tasks for managing and linking Web pages. Chapter 3 and 4 cover tasks for working with Web page text and graphics. Chapter 5 covers tasks for formatting Web pages with tables. Chapter 6 covers tasks for creating frames and borders. Chapter 7 covers tasks for inserting multimedia and special effects. Chapter 8 covers tasks for drawing and modifying objects. Chapter 9 covers tasks for adding functionality to Web pages. Chapter 10 covers tasks for gathering user input using forms. Chapter 11 covers tasks for publishing and managing a Web site.

How to Make Good Use of This Book

We, recommend using this book as a kind of beginner's reference. Use the index or table of contents to find the command or feature you want to learn about and go directly there. Each basic operation is presented as a step-bystep procedure, with illustrations to guide you. Simple but realistic examples allow you to try out most procedures on your own. As key terms are introduced, you'll find capsule definitions in the margin. (These definitions are also gathered into a Glossary at the end of the book, so you can look up a term at any time.) Margin notes also provide alternative methods to accomplish particular steps and summarize important concepts.

Every reader should begin with the first chapter, especially if you are not at all familiar with FrontPage 2002. After that, you can jump to any of the chapters that meet your needs. Keep the book near your workstation for quick access as you work on your projects. If a command or procedure confuses you, you can easily flip to the two or three pages that describe it.

We hope this book serves you as a useful guide as you learn and use FrontPage 2002.
