Hello, my name is Luis Estrada and I’m a software
developer. In this video, I’ll show you how to create a frame based web page with FrontPage.
FrontPage is registered trademark of Microsoft a company to which I have no affiliation.
I created a new folder called frames inside the my website directory. We will create a
frame web page linking to the home in gallery pages that I have in this folder. FrontPage
does not allow us to freely create a frame page rather it makes us choose from any other
of the available frame templates. After choosing any of the templates, we can customize it
by adding or removing frames and changing their size. Press file and new then choose
the lower page templates link and click on the frame’s pages tab. When you select any,
you get a preview of the frames. Choose a template according to your needs. For this
example, I’ll use the banner and content because this is probably the most common configuration.
This template consists of a frame that contains the title of the website, a logo or an advertising
manner at the top. On the left side, we have the content frame that holds the navigation
menu of the website. In the center, we have the main frame that holds the actual information
to each page. To fill each frame, you can either create a new page or use an existing
one. When you press of the set Intel page button, you can browse to the location of
the file. Then you adjust the height or width of the frame. Now, let’s press on the new
page button to create the top page. We will insert a banner in the page. So, press insert
picture and choose from file.
Select your banner image and center it. Next, let’s insert a navigation bar for the content’s
frame. Press new page. Select insert and hyperlink. Select the whole page and enter text for the
link. Then press the target frame button and select a main frame. Now, you insert another
link for the gallery page.
Press on the save button. FrontPage ask for the name of the top frame. We will call it
top dot htm. Then we have to give a name to the navigation page call it left dot htm.
Finally, we need to save the page holding the frames. We will leave the default index
name because this is the first page more visitors will see and it is a good practice to call
it that way. Now, open the index dot htm file in your web browser. When you click on the
navigation links, you will see the new page presented in the main frame. I’m Luis Estrada and I just showed you how
to create a multimedia website using FrontPage.
