FrontPage Extensions - Checking


Nov 20, 2002
I installed FrontPage extensions for one of my sites and I thought everything was working fine since I was able to publish my sites via FrontPage. However, when I preview the site, it doesn't show any of the shared borders (a feature that FP extensions should enable).

I'm using FrontPage 2000 and here are the results from the Extensions install/reinstall:

Attempting to install FrontPage extenstions ......

Frontpage 5 installer loaded ok..

Removing .htaccess files
Note: Local version of Apache must use the FrontPage Apache patch.

Frontpage extensions are currently: installed


Any ideas what might be wrong?

A lot of the features you may want to use in Front Page will not work if you edit the site on your hard drive and then publish it to a site. Best thing to do in my opinion is to open the site directly and edit the files, then save your work and things magically work. This is true for forms at least.

Shared border.. I think those files are in _private folder. Make sure there are files there.. and I'm not sure.. but I think the html files need to have .shtml extensions on them.
