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.
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.
To create a Root Web without creating a Sub-Web, use these steps:
- On the File menu, point to New, and then click FrontPage Web.
- Select a template or wizard and click OK.
- In the "Web Server or File Location" box, type the path for the disk- based web. For example, type the following:
NOTE: This path also corresponds to the name of your Root Web.Do not type anything in the "Name of New FrontPage Web" box.
- Click OK.
You will be able to view this Web in your Web browser, using an address similar to the following:
