Useful FrontPage Links


I had a bunch of FrontPage shortcuts lying around, so I thought that I should list them together in a single blog.

FrontPage Themes and Templates

Much like inserting a hit counter on your web page, nothing screams "amateur" faster than using one of the built-in FrontPage themes or templates to design your web site. That being said, not all FrontPage themes and templates are bad - it's just that many of them are so awful that they give the rest of the market a bad name.

Personally, I have seen several professionally-designed templates that use FrontPage's Dynamic Web Templates (*.DWT) to construct the look and feel for some really great-looking web sites. It pays to be choosy, of course, and find the right theme/template that works for your target audience. With that in mind, I have several theme and template sites listed below.

For a large collection of non-FrontPage-specific templates, see the Open Source Web Design website at the following URL:

FrontPage Add-ins

At one time there were a bunch of add-ins for FrontPage lying around on the Internet, but sadly those days are gone. Just the same, here are a few of the remaining links that contain Add-ins for FrontPage:

FrontPage Administration

This is probably one of the most useful links for the FrontPage Server Extensions, but be forewarned - it's not an easy guide to follow:
