FrontPage 2003 - Two identical pgms but links do not display in one
Posted on 2005-03-24
I have never used FP 2003 and am totally unfamiliar with these "webbot" this and "webbot" that stuff that I'm seeing. Be that as it may - I'm tasked with maintaining a simple change of address application written using FP2003. The app consists of three small programs: Change Address form, Send Email form, Confirmation form. I am comparing the program code (for the change Address form) in production against the same program code in our test system. Line for line - they are identical. However, when I copy in the production program into our test site and hit my F12 key to display the form - it's missing the left side navigation links as well as the page heading! But the code is freaking identical! I don't know what is going on - but I suspect it is something really simple...like some kind of re-linking that I need to check-off???? I have no idea - and this program is counter-intuitive. Any Experts out there who can help me out of this jam?
In an attempt to figure out how to make the left side navigation buttons appear along with the heading - I hit the Recalculate Hyperlinks function...which took forever and resulted in no change. So - I've eliminated the program copied in the the production side. Now, I noticed that a "New Link Bar" has appeared in the left side nav and heading of my original test program...! I don't recall inserting that! when I try and delete it - it wants to delete the entire left side navigation buttons, not just the one "New Link bar" button. Sigh. How can I fix this mess? (Will check back on Monday for replies.)
