Uploading with FrontPage Express

It is possible to use FrontPage Express to publish a website on the Unix webspace provided by Madasafish. However, the Unix Web Space server does not have access to the FrontPage extensions required by FrontPage Express 'Web Bot' components and if they are used in the construction of your website they will prevent it from working correctly. In the example below the instructions detail uploading an index.htm page to your free webspace for the first time.

Open FrontPage Express. FrontPage Express will open and display a blank page, ready for you to edit.

Create the webpage how you like by entering the text and inserting any pictures you require, this is very similar to using Microsoft Word. When you are happy with the page you will need to publish it to your free webspace.
