Can I use FrontPage?




SHORT ANSWER:   No, not any more.

LONG ANSWER:  Microsoft did an excellent job attracting users for its FrontPage software program.  Unfortunately since its inception in the mid-90s FrontPage was a clunky program with serious security flaws. 

In November 2004 Microsoft announced that the program had reached its end of life.  Microsoft no longer supports it and they have sent out bulletins encouraging all users to abandon the program and/or to upgrade to Microsoft Expression Web. 

As a result, we no longer support publishing with FrontPage or using FP webbots.  Users can still create web pages with this program if desired, but other file upload methods will need to be used.  For more information, please search the Knowledgebase for FTP options.
