    importing website from net (FP2000 4.02.6625)

    I designed a website in FP and published it to the web via FP, but have since gotten a new computer and given away the one on which I designed the website.

    I now wish to make some modifications to the published website, but it only exists on the net and - obviously - the servers of my host. I know it is possible to make changes without using FP, but I don't know how to do this, and would rather have the whole website in FP on my new computer, so I can make changes on my computer, then publish the modified website using FP.

    So, my question is can I now recover the website to my computer by somehow importing it back into FP off the net? Is so, erm, how please?

    Cheers

    Using FrontPage, you can File>Import>From Site and enter the appropriate details. Using FTP, simply connect to the site and download the files and folders to your computer.

    In the old days, it was recommend that you open the remote site in FP and publish to your local "server" (http://localhost/ on your computer or another machine) to try to get all the various bits and pieces. Even then, some unlinked assets (like mouseover images) might get lost. A combination of techniques might be best. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
