The NoteTab Off-Topic List
All Fookes Software mailing lists:
- I tried using FrontPage server extensions for a site I webmaster for,
several years ago. Used FP 2000. The web host was on a Unix box. There
is something about the FP extensions on Unix that get "lost" and have to
be re-installed frequently.
I got so tired of the issue and non-standard code generated by FP, that
I quite using it. I liked the ability to see a graphic of the whole
site, but that was not enough reason to justify the enormous expense of
FP. Most webhosts I have seen charge more to host sites on Windows with
IIS, so that is another reason I prefer web hosts using Unix/Linux and
If you have to use Front Page, I suggest you use a web host that runs on
Windows and uses IIS. Not very secure, and probably more expensive,
compared to Unix/Linux and Apache, but using an all Microsoft solution
will have less problems when using FP server extensions.
