Using FrontPage 2000/2002
For Students, Faculty and Staff Only

 

FrontPage Server Extensions

C&C does not support the FrontPage Server Extensions. You should avoid features that rely on them. They may work while you develop your pages, but they will not work when you move your FrontPage Web to a UW Web server.

FrontPage Components to Avoid

FrontPage Components are special features you can add to your FrontPage webs to create more dynamic Web sites. Most FrontPage Components require the FrontPage Server Extensions and thus do not work on the UW Web Servers. FrontPage components that require the FrontPage Server Extensions include:

  • Confirmation Field
  • Discussion Form Handler
  • FrontPage created server-side Image Maps
  • Hit Counter
  • Registration Form Handler
  • Save Results Form Handler
  • Scheduled Image
  • Scheduled Include Page Component
  • Search Form
  • Database Results Wizard
  • Send To Database Form Handler
  • Nested Subwebs
  • Lightweight Source Control (Document Check-in/Check-out without VSS)
  • Categories Component
  • Additional Information on FrontPage 2000 Database Functionality
  • Additional Information on FrontPage 2000 Security Functionality

FrontPage components that do not require the FrontPage Server Extensions and therefore are safe to use include:

  • HTML Markup
  • Include Page Component
  • Substitution Component

Note: The capabilities provided by some FrontPage components, like handling form submissions, can be achieved on the through other means such as CGI programs.
