vti bin folder missing
Looking for advice on best solution to fix

I made some initial changes to a website about six months ago. When viewing the HTML, it was very clean looking so I edited the code directly and used FTP to publish. Just found out that the contact form on the website doesn't work...it's trying to post using a file in a _vti_bin folder. So now I see that the original developer must've used FrontPage.

Looking for some advice on how to get the contact form working (not 100% certain that it ever worked, since I'm new to this website). Should I: a) attempt to have FP extensions installed on web server? Would that fix the problem? I'm not familiar at all with FP. b) Recode the contact form to post using a different script (non-FP)?

Thanks for any help you're willing to share.

Given that FP is no longer being developed, MS has a new product, Expression Web, and that's in it's 3rd version now, I'd say your best option would be to recode the form to use another form processor.
