FrontPage 98 introduces Shared Borders, a feature that allows you to automatically apply one or more common border elements to all files within a Web or to specific files through a single command.
Shared Borders are page regions--top, bottom, left, and right--used to hold content that you want to appear consistently throughout all pages in the current Web. Shared Borders are stored in four files:
Shared borders are stored in the _borders folder in the current Web. You can edit the shared borders files in one of two ways:
- You can open the file that contains the shared border you want to modify.
- You can open a page in the Web that uses the shared border.
NOTE: In FrontPage Editor, when you open a page that contains shared borders, the Web page appears to use a table format. If you view the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) code by clicking the HTML tab, you only see the HTML for the central page. You do not see any of the HTML code for the shared borders.
In FrontPage Explorer, you can turn on or turn off shared borders for the entire Web, or you can turn them on or off on a page-by-page basis.
To turn on or turn off shared borders from an entire FrontPage Web, follow these steps:
- In FrontPage Explorer, click Shared Borders on the Tools menu.
- Under Borders To Include, click to select or clear the check box to the right of the preview pane.
- Click OK.
To turn on or turn off shared borders on a page-by-page basis, follow these steps:
- In FrontPage Editor, open the page that you want to modify.
- On the Tools menu, click Shared Borders.
- Under Borders To Include, click "Set for this page only."
- Click to select or clear the check box to the right of the preview pane.
- Click OK.
