    Photo Gallery (2003)

    I'm in the process of creating a website and have added Photo Gallery by going to "Insert", "Web Component...", "Photo Gallery", Horizontal Layout, and Finsih.
    I added several .jpg digital camera photos and added a Caption text to each. When I go to "File", "Save" the page I receive a messages as follows:
    "To save this page and photo gallery, open a FrontPage based website, and save the page to that site" with "OK" as the only button option.

    What is this? I don't know of any FrontPage based websites or at least I don't think I do. This project has not yet been posted to the web, so I'm not
    sure what to do.

    Any help is welcomed.

    Hi Richard

    I have found this really good tutorial site

    http://www.outfront.net/tutorials_02/fp_te...hotogallery.htm

    This in particular appears to solve your issue:

    <hr>Saving the Gallery for the first time

    When you save the gallery the first time, FrontPage will create a directory (folder) in your web called, you guessed it, "photogallery." The photogallery folder contains a sub-folder associated with the Gallery you just created. It contains the thumbnail images and three htm pages: real.htm, real_p.htm and real_x.htm. The first two pages contain the thumbnails images. (note: if you create additional galleries, additional thumbnail sub-folders will be saved in the photogallery folder).

    You can save the large images in your Images folder, or create a separate folder to store them in. But DO choose where the large images will be saved otherwise FrontPage places them in the root (main) web folder. If that happens, you will no doubt consider it a mess when you see all those jpegs saved there! Use the Change Folder button in the Save Embedded Files dialog box.

    Thank you for the tutorial, but I still have the same problem.
    When I go to "File", "Save" (for the first time) I get a dialog box to "....open a website and save the page to that website".
    I can not get past this message to be able to save the page.

    Sorry, I thought that may have fixed it. I am clutching a straw here but it may be because you may have set up your Remote Web Site properties to connect to a web server via FTP instead of the local root file system

    Have a look here:

    http://www.fplearningcenter.com/reference/...b-site-prop.asp

    and check the settings, if FTP is set change it to File System....after that i am at a loss.

    Still could not figure it out.
    Change of plan ( When plan A does not work go to plan [img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img].
    Remove the Photo Gallery and Inserted individual pictures from file,
    then added tool tips for information.
    May not be pretty, but it works.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Have a look at:

    http://www.ebony-petalz.co.uk/

    I threw this site together for a colleague, specifically look at the gallery links on the left of the page and you will see EGG in action...very simple, good result

    Very impressive!

    I have not had time to fully check out EGG, but I will as soon as I resolve a few other issues.

    For now, I have just stick the photo on the page with ToolTips as notations.
