I have a website that I published before switching computers.
The site is on the web, but I do not have it on my new computer.
How do I download the site from the web so that I can update it?
I have tried using the Import feature on FrontPage, but all I get is the Home page.
Maybe import is not the correct way to go. Anybody had any experience with this? How do you open the site live if it is not on your current computer?
Knowing some basic HTML would help a lot. That's why I always encourage people to learn some HTML and not be too reliant on a particular Web editor.
You should then be prompted for the username and password for the website.
Enter these details and the site and all files should be visible on your pc.
You can edit your site and also change passwords, create subwebs and change permissions(live) this way before saving it to your pc. Simply choose publish and then type a local path on your PC to publish to.
By default when you next open frontpage it will open the last web you worked on which will be your live website so, make sure you close this and open up your local copy now (hopefully) on your hard drive.
"Publishing" back to your harddrive usualy keeps all the navigation structure intact as well which has always been lost when I have tried "importing" a website.
