Frontpage Help Requested
- I would like to make a couple of changes to the Encoder, but I need some
expert help from someone in the group who knows how to accomplish this task
using Microsoft Frontpage, and wouldn't mind helping out the SRS Encoder
with some free time. We have no money for hiring someone to do this.
Now, before I generate an entire thread on the list that really isn't on
topic, I would really appreciate it if you would send your reply to
editor@... instead of replying to the list. I would also
like to thank everyone who thinks they have a partial idea how to do this.
However, I am looking specifically for someone to help me implement this
idea. Partial ideas are not too useful for me (believe me, I have more
partial ideas than I can handle at the moment!).
My wish list:
The Encoder is a huge newsletter with tons of useful information. Finding
particular topics is a bit of a pain. We do use the google search engine,
but it seems to me we could do a better job at presenting the information. I
was maintaining an index by hand, but it is too much work to continue doing
What I want to do is have a frame on the bottom of each article that has a
link to other articles in our web that have related content. In addition, I
would like to have another little section with links to the same author. For
example, an article as part of the Basics series of articles would generate
links to all other articles with Basics as a keyword in the meta-tags. It
would also generate a list of all articles written by the Author tag.
Another example would be programming the 68HC12.
To do this, I am willing to put whatever tags are required in the source
HTML pages. However, I would like the frames to be auto-generated by
searching the documents. We do have the ability to run PERL scripts, and
also can install Frontpage ASP's.
I would really like to start this project in the next month or so, and
hopefully finish it by October. The Encoder will get a new look, based on
the existing article base. It will use Frames and will have better
If you know how to help do this, I would love to hear from you.
