  • Please send me your questions as you encounter them, so I can build a "frequently asked questions" here for everyone to access, and customize the tutorials to better suit your needs.
My suggestions for getting started:
  • Browse some pages that are similar to what you want to build. Look at other project pages for ideas.
  • Read the tutorial, "Planning the structure of your website"
  • Gather your materials. Get together pdf files, text for the pages, and images that you would like to include on your webpage and organize them into folders. Basically you are gathering and taking stock of the ingredients you will use.
  • Make sure that you have authentication to edit pages (ask me or Lilo).
  • Make sure that you have FrontPage 2003 installed on your computer.
  • Browse the FrontPage 2003 tutorials before you get started, and keep them handy when you are ready to start.
