***** Microsoft Corp. has discontinued the FrontPage development in 2006 and this software is now completely outdated. We encourage you to use an html editor that is currently being supported*****
FrontPage extensions will allow web pages to be published directly from the Microsoft® FrontPage application.� Unfortunately, they are easily corrupted.� If you are getting server error messages when you attempt to publish, log into your cpanel, go to the Advanced section, and remove and reinstall extensions.
�Warning: Installing Frontpage extensions will delete any
.htaccess files contained within your web area. This means that any directory or web page that requires authentication (username and password) will need to be reconfigured after the extensions are installed.
.htaccess files are an integral part of any basic authentication process. The file lives within a directory on the server and is used to enact the authentication process when the directory is accessed. The
.htaccess file is then checked against a file that contains an encrypted instance of the valid password for the directory.
.htaccess files also contain information about how the contents of the directory will be displayed, as well as information about how long visitors’ browsers will “cache” your site, or save it in memory.
