The FrontPage User Group is an independent group of dedicated FrontPage advocates, users, developers and trainers. The user group is not funded by Microsoft, but enjoys the status of 'officially recognised user group', which means that we are listed on the Microsoft web-site and Microsoft provide support in the form of publicising the user group. Whilst being independent, it is our intention to work with Microsoft so that we jointly benefit from improvements in future versions. 

We are always looking for new members and representatives for the national and regional committees. Please contact us if you are interested in helping out.

The Web sites listed below come from the thousands of submissions we've received to our request for "killer Web sites." Our intent is to highlight sites that provide you with new ideas, inspiration, and examples for your own Web sites. Thanks to those of you who have submitted sites. We will continue to highlight more of them in upcoming issues.

We like this Web site because it demonstrates how educators use FrontPage to share what goes on in their classroom with parents, students, and peers.  Using FrontPage 98, Mrs. Dziekanowski, the Eighth Grade Science teacher at Robert R. Lazar Middle School, has created an engaging and informative site that is enhanced with features like Themes and the discussion Web.  Check it out at:

This online seller of custom silk-screened apparel uses FrontPage 98 to create and manage a clever Web site that allows visitors to order custom printing on hats, t-shirts, bags, and a variety of other merchandise.  This site is large, commerce-enabled, and makes great use of forms.  Check it out at:

Many of the submissions we receive are from organizations that have used FrontPage to create a Web site as an information clearinghouse for their organization.  The Texas Judge is a good example of a well-crafted site that is regularly updated. The site provides resources to members of the Texas judiciary as well as those visitors interested in finding out about the goings-on of the Texas court system. Check it out at:

If you would like to nominate your site for Killer Web Site, you can send e-mail to


There are no technical support representatives on this alias, so please use it only to submit nominations for Killer Web Sites or technical tips we can publish in future bulletins.

A discussion Web can be a powerful addition to any Web site. For an initial investment of time on your part, a discussion Web can provide your site with continuously changing content that gets visitors involved and drives increased traffic to your site. We explore the FrontPage discussion Web feature in this new article and give you some pointers on maintaining the Web on a long-term basis

If you've set up a navigation bar in your top shared border, you can easily replicate that navigation bar in your bottom shared border. Just right-click on the navigation bar and choose Copy from the shortcut menu. Then, right-click in the bottom border and choose Paste.

You might not want to have two identical navigation bars on the same page, of course, but you could set the second bar up to display text buttons instead of icons. To do so, just double-click it and choose Text in the Orientation and Appearance panel.

You can then adjust the font size of these text links, which gives a really nice lower page navigation tool, similar to many professional sites today.  This works especially well if you have a long page. And of course both bars stay in sync with any navigation changes you make to the page.
