    Can someone just send me simple instructions on how to connect frontpage to a CPanel account with FP Extensions?

    Do I put http://ip address/ or something else to connect?

    Thanks!

    If you are using Internet Explorer as your browser, make sure in tools/internet options/programs the HTML editor is set for Front Page.

    When you are on the site just click the editor button which should change to the Front Page icon, because you are on a site made with front page.

    That way you can edit live.

    ++++++++

    If you are refering to publishing the web for the first time, then the domain name must be resolving as Front Page does not allow publishing with just an IP number.

    Hope that helps.

    One trick to edit a frontpage site before the name propagates is to edit your hosts file temporarily.

    find your hosts file,
    add the line:

    ###.##.##.### domainname.com

    where, of course, it's your IP address and domain name.

    This allows YOUR computer to access the site using the domain name, even though the rest of the web can't yet. You can then use FrontPage.

    The next day, edit your hosts file again.
