Discussion Wizard in Frontpage98

I've created a Discussion web in Frontpage98 and cannot see the directory that the discussion content resides in, example "_disc1."  I know the directory exists because I can see it in the URL while browsing the web.  Does Frontpage automatically hide certain directories?  Perhaps there's a setting I'm missing.

Yes, FrontPage & Windows does hide entire directories. If you're using Windows 95, there is an Temporary Internet Files directory, but if you click on it, there aren't any sub-directories.  The FrontPage _VTI_Bin, _VTI_CIF, _VTI_Log, _VTI_TXT, _VTI_PVT and custom directories like VTI_Disc1 are hidden directories. You may be able to see them in Win95 without IE4 if you set your view options to "Show Hidden Files".  If you have Internet Explorer 4.0, all Hidden directories will appear, but look sort of greyed out.

Any questions, please add a comment.

Good Luck

I know that Frontpage hides it's extension directories, however, I never witnessed it hide the 'disc_1' folders in the past.  I connect to a web hosting service, therefor I cannot see the directories through the file system.  The only way I have been able to get to them is through Frontpage, and apparently Frontpage98 does not allow that, or it's got a bug.

FrontPage hides folders which have names starting with
underscore character. You can make them visible if
you go to Tools/Frontpage Web Settings dialog box, select
Advanced and check "Show documents in hidden directories".

Thank you, your answer fixed the problem.  Strange, but by default, my _private folder is not hidden, and that's what was throwing me off.  A basic but annoying problem.

Thanks again
