Theme Copier - Allows you to copy themes between FrontPage installations. Now you build your theme and take it with you on floppy to install in another system. Easier than copying files!

Export Utility  - Microsoft FrontPage 98 had an export utility (as well as any HTML authoring tool should). FrontPage 2000 does not. Well here it is. Allows you to select as many files as you like, and export them to your local PC, in the folder of your choice. Can preserve Folder Structure of your web while exporting files. ASP, PHP, and other scripted documents can now be exported. Microsoft Access databases protected by FrontPage ("/fpdb" folder) can now be exported as well.  Even though Export returned in FrontPage 2002, you can only export one file at a time, PageTools Export allows you to export a whole web site, if that's necessary!

Flash Import Utility - Allows you to automatically import an SWF file into your FrontPage web, as well as insert the necessary code into your web page for both IE and Netscape!

Code Snips - Grab frequently used HTML blocks and insert them easily into pages without the need to re-create styles or HTML code.

Lurch Search v1.0Lurch Search 1.0

Is a personal search engine for IIS / ASP based web sites which can be utilized through Microsoft® FrontPage® 2002 or Microsoft® FrontPage® 2000. The person implementing Lurch does not have to know anything about ASP. NO CODING, OR COMPLEX SERVER SETUPS REQUIRED!

Price: $19.95
Lurch is highly customizable, and does not require an Index Server or FileSystem objects to be available on the server. Lurch's index capabilities allows web masters to setup categories for searching (for example: General, Knowledge Base, Support, etc), and allows the user to choose which files should be indexed for each category. Lurch also produces databases that are 400% to 600% smaller in file size due to the way indexing is accomplished. With most personal web search engines, all of the HTML code that a page is comprised of is indexed, while Lurch will only index the content of a page.


Server Requirements:

Microsoft® FrontPage® 2002 or Microsoft® FrontPage® 2000.
Windows NT / 2000 Server running IIS and ASP.
ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) must reside on the server.
Support for Microsoft Access or SQL Server on the server.

Lurch is configured and setup on a web site through the use of Microsoft® FrontPage® 2002 or FrontPage® 2000. The Add-On generates and uploads the necessary ASP files to the server for use. Lurch will not work on disk based webs, or web sites that are not running Internet Information Server and ASP. If you're not sure about the type of server your web site is on, contact your web host or systems administrator to make sure that you meet the requirements for running Lurch.

Microsoft Access

Lurch is capable of working with Microsoft Access databases. Microsoft Access files will require CHANGE permissions on the server for the IUSR_ (anonymous user) account. By default, FrontPage can import the database into the fpdb folder and assign the rights automatically. However, under certain circumstances this may not work and will require the intervention of the Systems Administrator. If you notice that Lurch is not saving data to the database, try to Recalculate Hyperlinks first. If that doesn't work, contact your web host or Systems Administrator and ask them to set up the necessary permissions for the fpdb folder.

OS Requirements

Lurch has been tested with Windows 95B, Windows 98SE, Windows 2000 Professional and Server, Windows Millennium, and Windows XP Professional Edition.
