    Discussion Web (FrontPage 2002)

    I used the Discussion Web template to make a Discussion Web subweb for my web site. It didn't work at first. I finally read the webreg.htm form instructions that show up in html view and discovered that it had to be placed in the root (http://root). I did that and was able to register myself. The registration confirmation page opened and said I was registered. The confirmation page gave me a link to the Discussion Web subweb. The subweb opened in the list (or directory) format, not to the _frm.htm page like I thought it was supposed to do.

    From what I have read in FP help, when I clicked the link to the subweb, it was supposed to require me to log in and it didn't.

    To get to the point, does anyone know how to make the log in work and why the subweb opened in a list (directory) format? Also, how do I make the _frm.htm page open first?

    I have searched this forum and didn't find an answer. I have been to Microsoft's KB and cannot find any answers. I Goolged like <img src=/S/crazy.gif border=0 alt=crazy width=15 height=15> and found nothing. Please help me.

    Thanks.

    Do you have a server running on the machine where the discussion is?

    Re: Discussion Web (FrontPage 2002)

    Thanks for getting back with me. My web site is hosted by iPowerWeb. The Discussion Web is located on their servers. They provide the FrontPage 2002 Server extensions. I do not have any server loaded on my computer, that I know of.

    Methinks there is some issue with the Webbots or there is html code under one of the forms that isn't pointing to the right place to require a log in.

    I am new to web site development and management, if you couldn't tell, so I have a lot to learn. FP help is pretty good, but if you don't know the lingo, it is hard to understand easily.

    Did I answer your question?

    Check with them and tell them your problem. I've found a lot of providers only activate Server Extensions on request (regardless of what their websites say), and also be aware that there is sometimes a delay between uploading the information and having it handled properly by the webserver at the other end (why I don't know).

    Cheers

    Being an iPowerWeb user, I can tell you that you must log into your Control Panel for your website (www.yourdomain.com/cpanel) and turn on FP Server Extensions. Check that, as Catharing suggested. Also, make sure that you have published the entire web, including any subwebs, to your site.

    Thanks, Mark. I finally figured out how to get it to work. No one place explained everything that needed to be done. What I had not done was to go to the cpanel for the subweb and change from anonymous user to the other choice (something like a registered user). When I did that, it worked fine.

    BTW, how has your experience with iPowerWeb been? I just joined them two weeks ago. I am on their Web Hosting program right now, but I am going to change to their Windows Hosting program because is has .asp, .asp.net. and ODBC support which I am finding out I need to have the web site I want.

    WebGenii, thank you, too.
