Help with updating a website

5+ Year Member

Msg#: 4277812 posted 3:22 pm on Mar 7, 2011 (gmt 0)

I have been asked to update a website, however the website is using includes, like
<!--webbot bot="Include" U-Include="../../top.htm" TAG="BODY" startspan -->

some sort of framing, which is fine, update the include files, but this isn't the case, updated the seperate files and nothing happens online when refreshed. I am kind of stuck.

From what I understand it was created in frontpage but I have no experience with this.

Any help would be great.

When you make a change like this and it doesn't show up, one of the first things to check is if the data is cached. Do a web search for "clear frontpage cache" and you'll find some pages with advice.

Be aware, FrontPage is a wysiwig app, and editing FrontPage files by hand is notoriously problematic. Depending on how big the site is, you might consider using FrontPage (if you have access to it) or if the edits are extensive, redoing the site with technology you're familiar with.

Last time I looked at Front Page was before they introduced "extensions". All MS generated code is pretty difficult to decipher. However, taking iframes as a parallel I find that refreshing a page does not necessarily refresh iframes and I suspect that the includes might be behaving in the same way (assuming no errors in your hand coding).

Ok thank you, i will does some search for frontpage cache clearing.

Front page is far from my choice of editors, never liked it when it was current. Im just stuck and potential of loosing the clients money as he will end up going else where.

I will done some mmore searching and see what I can change.
