FP97: Files Not Created in Root of New Disk-Based Web

Article ID: 170960

Article Last Modified on 8/10/2001



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft FrontPage 97 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q170960

SYMPTOMS

In FrontPage Explorer, when you create a new disk-based Web, close the Web, and then reopen it, the default document is not visible in the Root Web.

CAUSE

This behavior occurs because the content is located in a Sub-Web not the Root Web. When you create a disk-based web and you fill in the "Web Server or File Location" AND the "Name of New FrontPage Web" boxes in the New FrontPage Web dialog box, FrontPage creates both a Root Web and a Sub-Web and stores the Web content in the Sub-Web. If you enter only a path in the "Web Server or File Location" box, FrontPage creates only a Root Web.

NOTE: To locate the New FrontPage Web dialog box, point to New on the File menu, and then click FrontPage Web.

RESOLUTION

To create a Root Web without creating a Sub-Web, use these steps:

  1. On the File menu, point to New, and then click FrontPage Web.
  2. Select a template or wizard and click OK.
  3. In the "Web Server or File Location" box, type the path for the disk- based web. For example, type the following:

    C:\NewWeb

    NOTE: This path also corresponds to the name of your Root Web.

    Do not type anything in the "Name of New FrontPage Web" box.
  4. Click OK.

You will be able to view this Web in your Web browser, using an address similar to the following:

   File://C:\NewWeb\Index.htm
