Frontpage Includes is one of the few
FrontPage WebBot Components
that do not
require FrontPage Server Extensions
to work. You can make changes to the
included page and not even have to publish the page to work. You have to
publish all the other pages though to see the changes.
To Include a Page using FrontPage
page you wish to see the include, go to Insert - Web Component. In the new
dialog box that opens, choose Included Content on the right and now choose Page
on the left. Hit the Finish button and another dialog box will open.
Locate the page you wish to include and hit OK.
Once saved, you only need to publish the pages that you have changed.
Usually though, this is time consuming which is why I recommend
server side includes
You only need to publish one page and the content is parsed on the server before
the browser renders the page.
Frontpage Web Components
A schedule include
is a web component that
requires FrontPage Server Extensions
. A regular page include only requires Frontpage. It will insert some code into the pages that looks something
<!--webbot bot="Include" U-Include="included_page.html"
I know I just wrote about this the other day:
Working with Frontpage Includes
but I don't remember writing it (as some of you might remember my memory
issues). I listened to the recording and it seemed to echo so hopefully
this recording is a bit better.
