I have established an account with an ISP for Web page space. I have also downloaded a FTP. Do I need an authoring tool ? I can't get MS Personal Web Manager to work ? Is there a easier program to make changes to my web page? By the way, I have seen by page on the ISP.

Hi,

  Microsoft FrontPage 98 will be the right tool for your need. Just check with your ISP if his server has FrontPage extensions installed.
  with FrontPage, you can create the Web pages offline & then publish them to your ISP's server in your directory(webspace)
& everything should be fine !

This answer is unsatisfactory because my ISP , which is gte, said that I cannot use front page. This is a reply to a message I sent to them. "GTE supports FrontPage extensions for Business sites only at this time." I have been able to use notepad to make changes, so am I stuck with notepad or do I have to buy a authoring tool? Does Microsoft Windows 98 have a work-around that I'm not aware of?

I admit that I'm new at this. It would be nice to know a URL or two of some of these big software download sites.  Thanks for your help.

This answer will depend on the size of your wallet.  The ideal platform (in my opinion, of course) is to set up your home PC as your "development server".

Download Personal Web Server from the Microsoft site or another Web Server for your computer.  In addition, you need to download a copy of the FrontPage Server Extensions from Microsoft as well.
You will have to configure your system to support TCP/IP networking.  Setup of the web server may take care of this for you.

Install an authoring tool such as Visual InterDev 6.0 to write both code and WYSIWYG.  Visual InterDev 6.0 also gives you a quick view to see what you created in the eyes of a browser.

From there, you have your site on your PC which you can then upload your site to your ISP using WS_FTP or other FTP program.

It is best to Q/A your site before uploading it which would go against your idea of developing your site on the ISP.

Of course you can sub Notepad for Visual InterDev, then you pretty much don't have to spend a dime and you would not have to download the FrontPage Server Extensions.  You would still need to download the web server of course.

Have fun.

If all you are writing is straight HTML with no CGI/Applets, you don't even need a web server..such as you are doing.

You need FrontPage server extension installed on the ISP side for you to utilize FrontPage or InterDev.

TO answer your PWS ques..  Make sure you have TCP/IP networking installed on your PC.
