Business Web


In this first section of the course we are going to take a look at the Microsoft FrontPage 2003 interface. And the goal here is to get you more familiar with the different menus, and buttons, and panels, and windows, and the things that you are going to use within FrontPage 2003 to create your various web pages and websites. Now I don't want you to try to remember everything that's in this section. The goal again is just to sort of familiarize you with these different components, so that when you encounter them later on, they will be that much more familiar to you, and you won't go into the shock.

Now when you open FrontPage, your screen should look very similar to mine. It should open up with a blank page, and the interface it looks just like mine. Now you will have to activate FrontPage the first time you open it, meaning, you have to connect to, send them your serial number, and they will activate it for you. If you don't have one, you can install FrontPage as a trial version, they actually give you a pretty generous trial period. So let's take a look at the first interface element, and that's the toolbars.

Now, FrontPage 2003 by default will have these two toolbars here at the top open by default. The one at the top is called the Standard toolbar, and the one beneath it right here is the Formatting toolbar. The Standard toolbar contains a series of buttons that will let you perform some of the most common standard functions within the program. Create a new page, Open a page, Save a page, Find one and so on and so forth. And you can hover over any of these buttons, and a little Help tag will appear that tells you what that button does.

The Formatting toolbar allows you to format different elements. Most often you'll will use this to format text. You see you have a Styles menu, you've got a Font menu, Size menu and so on, and so forth. And again, you can just move your cursor over each of these until you get that little Help tag. Now if you go to the View menu and you come down to Toolbars, you will notice that FrontPage 2003 has more than just these two toolbars right here. It actually considers the Task Pane which we'll talk about in a moment, that's this area over here as a toolbar as well.

But the ones with the check are enabled and you'll see those on your screen. Now some toolbars float, and Code View is one that sort of floats around the screen. Come back to View, Toolbars, you can see I have got that one selected now. Again, close it by Clicking on the X button, or coming back in here under View, Toolbars, and just simply selecting it again. So if you want to enable or disable, you can come in and select it here, or choose the little X button in the upper-right hand corner.

Now some toolbars are docked like the Standard and the Formatting toolbar, and in their upper-left hand corner is a series of little dots. I call this the gripper, I'm not really sure what the technical name is, but hey, gripper works for me. And notice that my cursor changes to this little black four-headed arrow when I move over that area of the toolbar, and that's an indication to me that if I Click and hold down the mouse button, I can undock that toolbar, and move it around the screen.

And notice as I come down to the bottom portion of the FrontPage interface, it sort of redocks, and I can undock it. Click in this gray area to move it around, and if I move it to the left- hand side of the screen, the toolbar will dock there, you can pull it away, and you can sort of just move it around the screen to see where it snaps into different locations. And what's nice about this is as you become more familiar with FrontPage 2003, you can really start to customize the interface to meet your own individual needs, and I can put it right back where I got it, and sometimes this is a little bit of a guessing game.

Now notice that this time instead of stacking it on top of the Formatting toolbar, it put it on side-by-side, and I can just come down and reposition the Formatting toolbar just like so. Now another way that you can change the location of these two toolbars right here is using the Toolbar Options menu. If you Click on this little arrow right here, you have two options, Show Buttons on One Row, which is the opposite of what we see right here, or you can put them on one row.

Now something funny happened here, it sort of shortened the Standard toolbar. So in addition to this little black arrow, we now see these double arrows at the top. If I Click on that, I can access all over the missing options. If you're working with a really small monitor, or a really low resolution, that might be an option for you. You can also choose to Add or Remove Buttons very easily, and we might get into this later, it's little bit more of an advanced feature, but just knowing that it's there is a good thing.

So that's kind of toolbars 101 inside of FrontPage 2003, and as I said, as we go through this course, you'll get a chance to work with a lot of these different options.
