I have whipped up a few web pages and I want to link them together using the "button" feature in frontpage express.  It's easy enough to create and place the button and name it what I want, but I can't seem to figure out how to make it link to the other pages.  To see what I'm talking about go to:   http://pages.tstar.net/~hcrick/index.html
For the other pages substitute index.html with:
contactpage.html or hardwarepage.html or softwarepage.html

I have changed the buttons.  I used Paint to make them then put them in as jpg's then set them to the pages.  THEY LOOK LIKE POO-POO.
On the tool bar in FrontPage Express there are buttons and such that you can insert into the page, rename them, and I hoped, link them to a page.
The problem is: I can't figure out how to link the toolbar buttons to a page after I insert and rename them.

what frontpage version are you using, how come i don't have the button option?

is you button normal button then you screen capture and insert the image?

anywhere if they are image, you can right click them and you can change the image properties and that you can change the hyperlink

It's the little brother of FrontPage.  It's FrontPage Express.
The version # is 2.0.2.1128
The buttons are on the forms bar on the view menu.

The button you what to used by javascript/perl etc. if you want the button to link to another page you will need to add this javascript...

<html>
  <body>
      <form name="jump">
      <input type=button value="friends" onclick="window.location='friends.html'">
      <input type=button value="links" onclick="window.location='links.html'">
      </form>
  </body>
</html>


You can add as many of the input lines as you wish!

Just to add...
You can add this in the HTML mode and after the url there is a single quote ' followed by a double quote "

(Just cut and paste!)
