This is the perfect class for anyone who knows nothing about building Web pages, or has used FrontPage to build or edit some simple Web sites, but needs to learn how to build a Web site properly. We will take you from knowing nothing to building a full fledged company Web site from scratch (without the wizards) in a about an hour and a half. Yes, this course runs a little longer than our usual hour. It was tough to cut anything out of this one!

We'll start off by talking about what FrontPage is, what it does, and why you should use it. We'll give you a good foundation of terms and definitions.  We'll talk about the Web, networks, HTML, hyperlinks, URLs, domain names, and so on.

Next, we'll spend some time discussing Web site planning. I'll share with you my seven steps for creating a good web site. We then show you how to start Microsoft FrontPage, and go over the different parts of the screen: the title bar, the tool bars, the menu bar, the page area, the views bar, and so on.

We'll next begin by creating a new Web. We'll build an actual Web site for a fictional company. You can see this actual Web site at www.pcresale.net. Yes, this is a the REAL Web site we build in this class. Sure, it's pretty basic, but keep in mind that we built it in about an hour of class. Imagine what you'll be able to do after a couple of classes.

We'll build a home page. We'll create our own navigation bar with hyperlinks. I personally hate FrontPage's built-in navigation bars, so we'll create our own from scratch. I'll show you how to format your pages to make them look professional - using colors, fonts, horizontal lines, and so on.

Next, we'll show you how to create a template page that you can save and reuse for creating other, new pages. We'll show you how to work with multiple pages in your web. We'll learn how to rename pages. We'll edit our new pages to make them fit into our Web.

Lesson seven is all about hyperlinks. We'll show you how to create mail links, web page links to other sites, and links to other pages within your own site. We'll make our navigation bar come to life with hyperlinks. We'll also show you how to make custom external hyperlinks.

The next lesson covers adding graphics to your Web. We'll start off simple by inserting some clipart that comes with FrontPage. We'll show you the pictures toolbar. We'll teach you how to position clipart images absolutely on the page, so they don't push the text out of the way. We'll teach you how to take your own graphics and images and insert them into your Web.

We'll show you how to save graphics in your Web. We'll talk about the images folder, and how to move files into them. We'll also teach you how you can "borrow" images from other Web sites to include in your own. Finally, we'll show you how to perform a screen capture to grab any image on your screen to drop into your pages.

Lesson nine will teach you how to publish your Web from your local computer up to the Internet. We'll talk about registering your domain name, setting up Web hosting service, and what you need to do to get started. We'll discuss FrontPage Server Extensions. We'll go over our published Web site, and show you how to publish only changed pages.

Finally, we'll talk about Web site design considerations. We'll bestow upon you many ideas, tips, and tricks from our years in the Web design business. This lesson alone is worth the cost of the course!
