I posted this in the Ozone forum, and got the usual down with Front Page blather. Here is my post:

quote:
I have been doing a website for a club I belong to. Some people in the club have their own web servers for their company that they have volunteered to host it. I just spoke to the person I assume was their SysAdmin, and he said all my stuff had to be done in Microsoft Front Page, so as not to screw up his servers. Is this a normal occurrence?

I've never used Front Page, but he says I should be able to just import what I have done into Front Page and be good to go. I'm really not liking this, but I don't know if I have any choice because it's free for the club.

Does anybody have any hints, tips, or suggestions for me?

As usual, all help is appreciated



Should I be bugged about this or not?

Front Page also referes to server extensions that allow posting via means other than FTP (HTTP I think). They may be telling you you should place the files on the site using FP. FP tends to be a security nightmare. There's also an Apache module that implements FP extensions.

I don't use them, so I don't know all the particulars. I'm pretty sure it shouldn't have a huge impact on what you do.

Blather.

Thanks Linear

The guy asked me about what extentions I would need, and then told me about Front Page, so your reply would be on the mark. I guess I'll download Front Page... yea!

I only use Dreamweaver for the JavaScript bits it has. I used it for the show/hide layers on the last page you saw. I do my HTML coding in a text editor, it's something I've learned to do since coming to the Asylum. I can't seem to get the hang of writing my own JavaScripts, it just doesn't seem to come as easy as some other things.
