    Dreamweaver to Frontpage

    Hi, I know this is a bit similar to other recent threads, but it's actually the reverse.

    We've got a site that was created in Dreamweaver, but will now be updated in Frontpage (the new person looking after the site only knows Frontpage).

    I know that we have to install Frontpage extensions onto our server.

    But is there anything else we have to look out for?
    - Will our forms still work?

    Thank you!

    It should be much easier to move from Dreamweaver to FrontPage than it would be to move from FP to DW, because DW doesn't use proprietary codes and features. IIRC, anything you created in DW should still work in FP.

    I'd take the site and do a global search/replace - I use BKreplace - for any dreamweaver specific comments (current dates, template anchors, thyings like that) and get rid of them. Then import to FP.

    It's not the way to go. And it may be cheaper buying a big thick Dreamweaver book instead of messing up your server. If they won't change (DW is in a totally different league to FP) then you have the book to use the book as a projectile.

    No electrons were harmed during the creation, transmission
    or reading of this posting. However, many were excited and
    some may have enjoyed the experience.
