*** FrontPage Extensions Server *** Am I getting crazy or stupid ???
Posted on 2003-03-10
Greetings from Belgium,
I have been using different versions of FrontPage for the last 6 years to design Web pages and I always faced the same problem; as I really am getting tired of never receiving any help from the Belgian Internet Provider's "technicians" and as I do not want to die completely stupid, I decided to submit my problem to the expertsXexchange friends!
Under miscellaneous Operating Systems (Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98 SE and now Windows XP Pro), I have been using Microsoft FrontPage 97, FrontPage 2000, FrontPage 2002 and, each time, I installed the FrontPage Extensions Server and, each time also, the only applet (among the ones supposedly available after that installation) that really works is the Hovering Buttons!!! If I try to use another applet, such as the Hits Counter, it does not work! It does not work neither when I try to preview my designed page on my PC nor when it is published on the Internet Provider server (even though they always pretend that they also have the Extensions installed on their server!!!
What do I do wrong? What am I missing? Has always been the Internet Provider telling me lies? I doubt that because, if he did, it would work on my PC but not on the server (at least, that is what I think).
Could someone enlighten me on that strange problem and help me to FINALLY solve it??? As I have been carrying that problem without ever being able to find a solution, I have plan to allocate a lot of points on that question because I do think that the one who will help to find THE solution will deserve it!
Thank you to all!
