    I was making a Privacy Policy for my site, FinHeaven & Co, when I was finished, I thought I would add a link on to all the pages. As some may know, FrontPage has "shared borders" so, I did that, then added a link to my site. This is when it happened. When I went to view the site, the link to the privacy policy was were all my SSI coding was!!!

    So apparently, FrontPage doesn't like it when you use actual coding, instead of using their bots or whatever.

    I also notices that if you use SSI, and the FrontPage's form processing, it won't work!

    That was the last straw! I am tired of trying to do something, and only to find that Microsofts wants it their way or the highway!!!

    I have been reading good things about Dreamweaver, perhaps Macromedia will have a new customer soon!!!!

    Any other problems experienced by SitePoint users here?

    Let's make something very clear here:
    If you don't like text editors, don't post here!

    Text editors are very cool, but only if they've a preview function

    I recently installed 1stPage 2000 and I like the program!

    Free advice: do not use FrontPage's webbots. This includes:

    - Forms that it generates (do the coding yourself)
    - Themes
    - Shared Borders
    - Extensions
    - Other Such Things

    Just say no! Your problems will no longer exist if this is done.

    I would certainly recommend Dreamweaver over Frontpage any day. But even better see the new version 6 of Hot Dog it is ace.

    Let's keep this thread on-topic and not turn it into yet another FrontPage vs. Dreamweaver debate, please!

    I won't... I'm slowly turning into a Text Editor freak

    BTW this doesn't mean that I don't like/use DreamWeaver anymore...

    I'm recommending you just to use SSI together with CGI/PHP/ASP scripts to process information.

    You may use the bots, but only if you don't use any other technologies on the same site. The bots were made to give newbies a chancxe to get their site up in 3 hours without any *real* knowledge. Now you know more you should switch to mor advanced things like SSI and CGI/PHP/ASP. You can use those things perfectly in FP2000 and it won't mess that up as long as you don't use those BOTS, Shared Borders, etce etc.

    Actually I did the Brainbench test of FP2000 once and I got a score of 3,6/5

    I had ALL questions about webpage editing and compability and stuff right, but I missed most of teh WebBots and Shared Border stuff... Anyway I still hade better than 89% of all the others who did the test before me so that was pretty good

    If you are used to working with FP2000 I'd recommend you to keep using it because DW3 hasn't got enough other features (almost none) to be worth it to change (DW3 has a long learning curve so it will take much time). Just stay off all that BOTS crap and Shared Borders things...

    I have to agree. I am a fan of FP and it still is involved in all my projects at some point, for adminastration if nothing else.

    However, I find as I'm starting to further my skills, I have need for more control over my site. This means more reliance on how scripting languages work and hand-coding my pages.
