Multiple Domains using FrontPage

Hi everyone, I sure hope someone here can help me.

I've done my website with FrontPage 2000, and published it thru FP to my hosting account. Now I want to have a different website, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to do that - and the folks at tech support at my hosting co. can't seem to help either.

Here's the deal (and forgive me if I don't explain this well). Website #1 is on my computer under C:/blahblahblah/MyWebs. That contains all the pages and .pdfs and .jpgs used on Website #1. Now where in the world do I put the pages/etc. for Website #2? If I create subfolders under MyWebs, it gives me errors. If I do file/new/web and create a folder for each website (naming the folder the same as the website), it publishes weird (i.e., puts everything on one website, and erases the other).

I also get this weird message about editing dates and letting FrontPage decide something.

I'm frustrated because I've submitted two help tickets to my hosting service, and got completely unhelpful answers back - and today I spent 30+ minutes on the phone with them, did exactly what they said, and it still didn't work.

Can *anyone* help me? My second website is geared specifically toward teachers/educators, and I need to have it up and running by next Saturday in time for teacher appreciation day at Staples!

Thanks for *any* help!

I haven't used FP for at least 5 years and then never intensively. I remember that I never used its publishing options but simply used the standard file/save as option to keep control over the folder structure.

I use FP for my websites. It should work if you make a folder called MyWebs2 in the same level as MyWebs, under blahblahblah.

For me, I have different websites under MyWebs. I go into MyWebs and I have different folders in there for different websites. But if you have each page of your first website under MyWebs, then it probably won't work, because it's like a website in a website. So, try what I suggested above, it should hopefully work.

As I recall, click on FILE and then NEW and it should provide a few options. Select ONE PAGE WEB and there should be an address window that appears with the file location. By default it will show the last web name and add a "2" to it, e.g.: c:\my documents\my webs\whatever the last web was2. Change "whatever the last web was2" to the new web name, e.g.: c:\my documents\my webs\my new web. That should be all that is required.
