FrontPage, FrontPage Extensions & Server-side includes (SSI)

** Please note that Frontpage has now been superseded by Microsoft Expression Web. **

FrontPage

This popular web site creation software takes a lot of the strain out of web publishing.

Choose your theme, create a web, publish. It is that simple! It will take you a little while to get used to but if you have used Microsoft Office products such as Word, then you will quickly find your way around.

Although the new version of FP, FrontPage 2003, is available, there are many web hosts who are not yet able to host the special extensions required to use all of the features so if you decide to buy FrontPage, make certain your chosen web host is able to accommodate the version you are planning to use.

FrontPage Extensions

FrontPage extensions are what is known as server-side includes (SSI). This means that some of the operations are performed on another computer or on another part of the server at the same time as the main operations.

If you are using FrontPage, ensure that your hosting package includes FrontPage extensions and also that the extensions are compatible with the version of FrontPage you are using.

Server Side Scripts or Server Side Includes (SSI)

Other examples of server-side scripts are; CGI, ASP, PHP, MySQL. Many web hosts require additional payment for server-side scripts, including those of FrontPage.

If you are planning on learning to code, or want to use some special features or create dynamically generated pages you may want to think about including server-side includes (SSI) in the planning and costing for your website.
