Frontpage automatically inserts the [frontpage save results span] message into pages with code when you save or close a web.
If you still see this message after you upload the page, there is a problem with your form that needs to be fixed before the message will disappear.
On your 404 problem, the only thing I can suggest is that if you use custom 404 pages, make sure all the links are to absolute URLs, not relative links to the directory in which the page is place. I don't know if this was the problem you were having with 404s, but I didn't really understand what you meant
The 404 thing, any chance you have a folder on your computer known as OEM Computer, or that is the name of the computer itself, or perhaps maybe even a username?
If you copy and paste things outside your web (or from another FP web, the program will not update some of the URL's, or rather link through a filename as opposed to http://
You have to keep your eyes on these sort of things with FP because the program will do some things automatically, without notifying you.
What version of FP are you using?
There is an option on both progs (diff. places) that will allow you to check your links. What I done before finding out this wee prob is copy and paste your web to a new location so any "filenameS" that are used as links are now broken. Then you can let the program automate the task of finding what ones should be changed.
If you have FTP'ed your site before, this has been known to affect the FP components, including forms. If the FP components were not working, then you'd see this message. Try making a new form on a new page maybe? See if the same thing happens.
Also I have noticed a lot of disfavor on WebmasterWorld with FP what are the options and is there a general publication on web site construction.
I would'nt worry about non-FPers ;) Some members here who use FP have highly respected sites, you wouldnt be able to tell what editor they used. Whatever works for you (and works on the web)...works!
This is my favourite 'feature' of frontpage ;), that, and the way the html code viewer doesn't show you all the HTML code.....
Again thanks for the support on the other post BOL that was a little
PS-Are there updates to FP98 or should I just change to a later version.
pps.Anyone have phone #s to Dmoz they could sticky mail?
