    2. Click the “Publish Web Site” button




Editing Your Existing Website

There are many things you can do in FrontPage to edit your student website. We will go through a few of them now.



Editing Text within FrontPage

FrontPage acts just like a text editing program such as Word. You can type text where you want it to go and add any formatting you want to it.




  1. Open your “index.htm” file by double clicking it in the folder list on the left hand side of the screen. This is your home page.






  1. Your home page will open up. Delete anything you don’t want on the page and place your cursor where you want to add text.






  1. Begin typing any information that you want on the page.



  1. If you want to start a new paragraph press “Enter”, if you want to make a line break press “Shift” + “Enter”.




Inserting an Image into your Webpage

You can insert an image anywhere you would like to on your webpage.




  1. Place your cursor on the page where you would like to insert the image.



  1. On the menu bar click “Insert” then “Picture” then “From File…”





  1. Select the image you want from the “Picture” pop-up window and press “Insert”.






  1. The image is inserted into your page.




Creating a New Page for Your Site

Before moving on to the next section you will need to create a new page for your site.




  1. In the “Folder List” panel on the left hand side of the screen click the “New Page” button.





  1. Next, type the name of the page followed by the “.htm” extension in the “Folder List” panel. Double click the new page to open it.






  1. Add any content to the page that you would like.



  1. To save your changes, go to the “File” menu and select “Save”.




Applying Heading and Paragraph Styles




About the use of Styles

The “Style” tool is used to format text according to preset font color, size, style and weight criteria to any given paragraph; a “style” always applies to an entire paragraph.


Most importantly, the use of style applies structure to your web content that improves both usability and accessibility when done correctly.

Rules for applying “Heading” styles in FrontPage

Special usability rules apply for the use of “Heading” styles, as follows




  1. Heading styles must always be applied in numerical descending order according to the reading order of the page.

    • Example #1: you should never apply “Heading 3” style to any paragraph before a “Heading 2” style is used somewhere prior in the page.


THE WRONG WAY…


  • Example #2: you should never skip a heading style, such as applying “Heading 4” to any paragraph before applying Heading 1, Heading 2 and Heading 3 to text earlier in your page.

    THE WRONG WAY…



It is perfectly acceptable to use a previously used same heading style more than once, as long as it is in the correct order.
As shown in the example below, you can use Heading 1 once, then three Heading 2’s, then Heading 1 again:
THE RIGHT WAY…



NOTE: Do not use bold and/or italics font formatting as the means of creating a content heading. Use only the predefined styles and the “Style” button to create page headings.

Example of Correctly Applied Heading and Paragraph Styles






How to apply Heading and Paragraph styling

Now you will apply headings and paragraph styling to your web page. Web pages should be designed with sections to give a sense of structure. Headings define the sections, while paragraphs are what hold the content of the sections. For example, you might organize your student web page using the following headings:




  • About Me

  • My Classes

  • My Professors’

  • Course Work

  • How to Contact Me



To convert text into a Heading:





  1. Type the text that you want to apply heading style to and click within it.





  1. On the “Formatting” toolbar click the “Style” dropdown list and select “Heading 1”.





  1. Heading 1 is applied to the text.




To convert text into a Paragraph:

If you want to change any text that has a list style, heading style or any other style to paragraph style:




  1. Highlight the text that you want to add paragraph styling to.






  1. On the “Formatting” toolbar click the “Style” dropdown list and select “Normal”.







  1. The highlighted items will now be formatted in paragraph style.






How to add emphasis within a paragraph

Frequently you may need to add emphasis to pieces of content within a web page. Use the following guidelines to help you determine how to judiciously add emphasis to certain words, phrases or sentences throughout a web page:




  1. Use the “Bold” or “Italic” icons on the formatting toolbar to judiciously add emphasis to key words, phrases or sentences in a paragraph.






  1. Use “Bold” or “Italic” to apply emphasis to an entire paragraph only once or twice per page; rarely use “Bold” or “Italic” on two paragraphs in a row.


THE WRONG WAY…



  1. Feel free to use “Bold” or “Italic” to add emphasis to single words or short phrases throughout your page.


THE RIGHT WAY…




  1. Never use “Bold” or “Italic” to create the appearance of a page heading. Use Styles


    THE WRONG WAY…






  1. Never use “Underline” to apply emphasis. ( This is used only for links)


THE WRONG WAY…

Examples of Bad and Good Paragraph Formatting

Notice the “Bad” paragraph is almost completely bolded, where as the “Good” paragraph has only bolding on important terms that need to stand out.



THE WRONG WAY…



THE RIGHT WAY…

Creating Lists

The “List” tool creates bulleted and numbered lists. Lists are important for organizing items into logical groups, and are the correct way of creating “chunks” of content that make for easy-reading web pages.



Create a Bulleted List

  1. Type the first item in the list and then press “Enter”. Another number is automatically added.






  1. Continue entering each item in and pressing “Enter” until you have completed your list.


Removing Bullets and/or Numbered Lists

If you have created a bulleted or numbered list and would like to remove it:




  1. Highlight the entire list that you would like to remove.






  1. On the menu bar go to “Format”, then “Bullets and Numbering”.

Tips & Procedures for Complex Bulleted or Numbered Lists

  1. On the menu bar click “Format” then “Bullets and Numbering”.





  1. The “List Properties” window is displayed. Select the lower case letters box. Click “Ok”.






  1. Notice that the numbers are changed to letters.




Creating Tables

In FrontPage you can create tables for data or layout.




  1. Data tables are tables which contain grid-based information, such as a grid of names and phone numbers.

  2. Layout tables are tables (typically with transparent borders) that enable more flexible positioning of content on a web page.


Example Table and Procedure

Now you will add a table to your page.




  1. Place your cursor where you would like to insert your table.




  1. On the menu bar click “Table” then “Insert” then “Table”





  1. The “Insert Table” window appears. Enter the number of “Rows” and “Columns” you want in your table.




  1. Next, set the “Cell padding” and “Cell spacing” attributes.

    1. Cell padding is the distance between the table cell wall and its contained text. Recommended value is between 4 and 10.

    2. Cell spacing is the distance between the table cell walls with one another. Recommended value is 0 or 1.





  1. Next, set the “Boarder” Size attribute for your table.




    1. Set Border to 1 for data tables or whenever you want a grid to be displayed

    2. Set Border to 0 to make the boarder transparent.





  1. Once you have entered those and any other table parameters, click “Ok”.







  1. Now you can enter you data into the table.




Change Table Properties




  1. To change the properties of a table, position your cursor on the edge of the table and select it. (make sure the entire table is selected).







  1. On the menu bar select “Format” then “Properties”.






  1. The “Table Properties” window opens up. Make any property changes necessary and click “Ok”.





Publishing Changes Back to Your Web Site

Now that you have made changes to your web site within FrontPage, you are going to want to publish those changes to your Remote Web site.




  1. On the menu bar select “File” then “Publish Site….”







  1. The “Remote Web Site Properties” window displays. Select the “FTP” radio button.






  1. In the “Remote Web site location” text box enter ftp::/studentweb.csuci.edu/. Click “OK”





  1. In the bottom right hand corner click the “Local to remote” radio button , then click the “Publish Web site” button
