How to Use the Free Templates Express Templates with FrontPage
« on: December 29, 2005, 11:22:29 PM »
If you’re looking for some free templates to use with FrontPage, you can find them right here at LunarPages. The Templates Express package, which is installed in Fantastico, will create template pages that you can use in FrontPage.

In brief, here are the steps to use the free templates in FrontPage.

1) Uninstall the FrontPage extensions if they were previously installed.
2) Clean out the public_html folder.
3) Install the template pages using Templates Express.
4) Reinstall the FrontPage extensions.
5) Publish the template pages down to a folder on your computer.

Now for the details. The wording on the prompts are for FrontPage 2003 and they may be slightly different in previous versions.

1) If you have previously installed the FrontPage extensions, in cPanel click the FrontPage icon and uninstall the extensions. Then click the button to Clean up old extensions.

2) Using the cPanel File Manager or another FTP program, clean out any remaining files and folders inside the public_html folder. You can leave the cgi-bin folder but be sure to delete the images folder.

3) In cPanel, click the Fantastico icon then find and click Templates Express. Click New Installation, find and select the template you want, then click to install. Fill in the information then click to install. Note that if you ever want to change to a different template, you’ll need to uninstall Templates Express and start over. After the installation is finished, return to cPanel by clicking the Home link at the top of the window.

Note: to make it easier to choose a template, the screenshots of the templates are in three PDFs that you can download and print out.

4) Click the FrontPage icon, install the extensions, then exit cPanel.

5) In FrontPage, select the File menu and choose Open Site. For the site name enter http://domain.com (substitute your domain name) then click Open. Enter your username and password then click OK. You will see the files that Template Express has created on the server. Select the Tools menu and choose Recalculate, and wait for it to finish.

To publish the files down to a folder on your computer, select the File menu and choose Publish Site. On the Remote Web Site Properties dialog, for the server type choose File System then click Browse. Browse to the My Webs folder then click the icon at the top to create a new folder. Give your new web folder a name, click OK, then click Open. Back in the Remote Web Site properties, click OK to start the publish sequence. Click Yes to create a web site in your new folder.

Click Publish Web Site to publish the files from the Local Web Site (on the server) to the Remote Web Site (on your computer.) Close the web site on the server by selecting the File menu and choosing Close Site.

Now open the web site from the folder on your computer by selecting the File menu and choosing Open Site. Browse to the My webs folder, click to open the new folder you created for your web site, then click Open

Congratulations! You now have a set of web pages that you can edit, changing graphics, text, and whatever else you want. If you need more pages, just right-click on one of the existing pages in the Folder List, select Copy, then right-click again and choose Paste.

When you're ready to publish your changes to the web server, select the File menu and choose Publish Site. For the Remote Web server Type, choose FrontPage or SharePoint and for the Remote Web Site Location enter http://domain.com (substitute your domain name) then click OK. Click the Publish Site button to start transferring your changed files up to the server.
