Courses - Microsoft FrontPage 102
Description: Using Microsoft FrontPage
Running Time: 65 minutes
Pre-Requisites: FrontPage 101 strongly recommended
We use FrontPage XP in this course, but the lessons are valid for all versions of FrontPage from 2000 to 2003.
In this class, we will continue working with the Web we started designing in FrontPage 101. We will begin by taking a look at the benefits of editing your Web on your local hard drive vs. editing it right on the Internet. We'll then discuss working on copies of your pages, so you don't disrupt traffic on your site. We'll see how FrontPage will deal with your hyperlinks between pages.


Next, we'll learn all about hit counters, and how you can use them to track the traffic your web pages receive.


We'll learn about many of the different cool FrontPage components, like Hover Buttons - that automatically change color when your mouse "hovers" over them.


We will learn about advanced color management techniques - how to get exactly the color and brightness you're looking for.


You will also learn how to use a unique tool called the Eyedropper which can capture a color from anywhere on the screen.


We will show you another nifty FrontPage component called a Scrolling Marquee which you can use to have text dance across the screen.


Now, here's one of the most important lessons of this course. We now have several different pages, each with the same navigational links across the top of the page (Home, Products & Services, Contact Us, etc.) We need to add another link for a new Specials page. We will learn a very powerful feature of FrontPage called the Include Page Component which allows us to create a page of navigation hyperlinks that will then be used on each and every page in our Web. This prevents us from having to update multiple pages in the future if we need to change or add links.


You will next learn how to create simple graphics using Microsoft Paint. Paint is an application that comes with Windows, and we'll spend a few minutes learning how to draw a simple map that we can then incorporate into our Web site, on the "Locations" page. You can also use Paint to edit pictures, draw company logos, or any other simple graphic editing task. We don't spend a lot of time on Paint in this class. For more with Paint, see our Windows 121 class.


Next we'll see how we can use Bookmarks to jump between different locations within the same page. We'll use this to jump from the top of our Locations page down to each office's location. Same page - different spots in the page.


If you're serious about learning how to develop quality Web sites, don't miss this course. The sections on Include Page Components and Bookmarks alone are very important topics for all Web designers to know.
