Stop _vti_cnf folders!
Posted on 2005-03-17
I'm designing a web site with Frontpage. (As it is in Farsi, it really pains to be created with my favorite Dreamweaver [which has problems with right-to-left designing] and I don't know a better option, than Frontpage. Can you suggest me one?)
Now, when I modify a single page with FP, it creates a bulk of _vti_cnf folders, inside all folders of my local site.
I'm aware of that, these fodlers shouldn't be pasted to the remote server (real host) for security reasons, and for storage waste. In the begining it wasn't that hard to locate and delete those silly folders! But as the project extends, having several folders, it really hurts to find and delete them. I don't use FP's publishing system for some reasons. I've created a little VBS file, which can locate and delete those folders in milliseconds. But I'm stilling looking for a BASIC THERAPY:
How can I stop Frontpage from creating those silly folders?!
I found a comment somewhere: "If you edit your pages as single HTML files, and not parts of a "web site" then frontpage won't create those folders." If this is true, then how can I make FP think that the pages under my C:\Inetpub are not in a web site?
