I am frustrated beyond belief! I did not build my website, but have always maintained it with Front Page. Since Front Page has not become a dinosaur, I felt it was time to update the site.
Our web developer talked me into a "database" site with "static pages." He assured me that this is the way websites are now done and told fairytales of how much easier it would be to maintain my site.
Well, I am completely lost. I went from being able to easily see my site at a glance in Front Page, to seeing a list of static pages. When I upload an image, the only choice I am given is to "Upload to server." I have no control over where it is being saved. If I am linking text, I am not given a choice to search the server for the file that I blindly uploaded, so the result is that I can't link the text.
To create a thumb nail image that will open into a larger one in the public pages of the site, I have to upload the image twice and then link it to itself. SOOOO much more work than Front Page!
I also find the functionability of FCK Editor really flawed because if you happen to hit the X (delete) button, that is strategically located RIGHT NEXT TO the edit button, your page/site is lost forever (it doesn't have a safe page that asks if you are sure you want to delete something).
I am really at a loss. Does anyone know of an easier way (program) to edit my new, "improved" website? Can a website built with static pages be edited with Dream Weaver?
Any help would be appreciated!
