Presently, I see my server site in Cute Professional in File fiew on the right side of Cute, but don't know how to make if visible in Page view and in Front Page on the server side. So, I basically need to know how to switch back and forth from File View To Page View on the server. (Will the Page View come up in Front Page automatically if I created it in Front Page. If not, can I bring it up in Front Page somehow and make changes the way I do at home on my PC?)
Also, if this involves dragging and dropping from the right side to the left, does the left side (PC hard drive side)need to already be open in the file in which I want to drag the updated folder or file and do I simply drop it into a blank space? What about the Index Page? Do I drop it directly on the file itself, or in a blank spot?
Thank you so much for your help.
As such you cannot edit the webpage directly in cuteftp, cuteftp is for loading and downloading pages from server to our local compter and vice versa
so in simple language here is what you need to do
open cuteftp , and locate your server folder on one side and your local harddisk on other,
just copy those files from server to your local computer
make changes in front page and again upload those files on to server , it will ask wheather if u want to replace old files , say yes and your new pages would be uploaded
in case you already have those old pages locally on your computer just follow last step above
hope this helps and you would rock :)
Frontpage websites often use frontpage extensions somewhere or the other, these can be very easily damaged by using ftp software to upload certain parts of the website
and you will find that several hosts strongly recommend that frontpage websites should only be modified using frontpage,
I think you can also try MS visual studio, but I am not sure
I do use some Front Page extensions. I use a Marque on the Home Page. I also post a lot of pictures as thumbnails. (I do NOT use the Photo Gallery, but insert pictures into tables and convert each to a thumbnail.) Will FTPing those thumbnails back to my hard drive cause problems?
I recently had to restore my computer back to the way it looked last Monday. In doing so, I lost a lot of information.
It would be much simpler to FTP the server pictures to my hard drive, then update my PC and publish the updates. Is there a safe way to do that?
"[page name] was modified by [name] on [time]. Do you want to overwrite these changes?"
If you answer Yes, then FP will upload the OLD version of your page (the one it has stored) and your ftp changes will be lost.
IOW, vite_rts is correct --bad idea. :)
And, can I make simple changes directly on the server without moving the change to my PC? (Such as "I'm having computer problems. The site will be updated shortly.) Then, simply make new changes directly on my PC and publish them over the message on the server.
If you use an ftp program to make changes to a FP site, the problem come the NEXT TIME you publish your site using FP....
Only if there is a "next time." I find that ftp is quicker and less troublesome than FrontPage's built-in publishing routine, especially for Webs of more than a few hundred pages.
