    Using an ASPx home page (2002 SP2)

    I'm trying to update a website that I built with FrontPage to use an ASPx home page, and FP insists on renaming my default.aspx to index.htm. Does anyone know of a way around this - I'm sure somewhere in the theme or css files, there is something that could be tweaked so the HOME navigation link goes to an ASPx page rather than an htm on. BTW, I do have the ASP option turned on.

    FP might be getting some feedback from the server extensions that only default.htm(l) and index.htm(l) are valid "default" pages. Nevertheless, you should be allowed to use any name you like, right?

    Incidentally, I'm not sure you want ASPX for ASP; I believe ASPX is for ASP.NET. (Maybe you meant .NET and just left that part off. I haven't done any .NET yet.)

    It actually is an ASP.Net page - so FrontPage doesn't know anything about it. But the annoying thing is that if I try to make it the home page in the navigation view, it promptly renames the page to "index.htm", and then the server doesn't do it's thing because it doesn't have the .aspx extenstion. I have it sort of limping along at the moment, as I have both a default.aspx and an index.htm that are similar, but . . . .

    Wendell,

    Try Admin Tools/Internet Services Manager. Find Default web site/right click on the web you need and click on properties. Select the documents tab and add the default.aspx name at the top of the default document list and click ok. Go back to the Tools/Internet Services Manager and refresh the host site. Then go back into Frontpage and republish. Your default.aspx should publish with that as the default. Good luck.
