The new Front page 2002 XP programme is easy to use for making websites, the programme automatically creates a website to your standard, with auto changing the website banner, hyperlink bar and footer all automatically change on all your produced sites. Before using this programme I had no experience in making websites, now only after 2 weeks i can produce proffesional looking websites in a matter of hours a superb programme althought the uploading can be slightly tricky. An idea is to make a test website and upload it after a bit of experience using this programme you will be able to create superb websites. I did!
I hated computers two years ago. I still sometimes get the urge to throw mine out the window! However, over time, I have really gotten into the computer age. I got to the point where I can get into the operating system, namely XP, and do software upgrades, hardware upgrades, memory upgrades and system reconfiguration. So, what was the logical next step now that I am computer savvy to almost expert level? Web design, of course. I mean, who doesn't want their own, personal web site? For leisure, for fun, for business, whatever the reason, everyone on the net wants to make their mark on the World Wide Web. Well, enter web design utility programs such as Microsoft FrontPage 2002. The features are incredible, and what it can (supposedly) do is simply awesome, that is IF you are an expert in FTP, HTTP, HTML etc. FrontPage 2002 is a great utility for those who already know how to upload, or publish files onto the web. I found this software to be totally, infuriatingly frustrating! I had no idea how to do any of the aforementioned, and was still lost even with a friend of mine talking me through it over Instant Messenger. The so-called instruction manual is so lame, it is not even worth the paper it is printed upon. It is obviously catered to those who, like I said, already know how the web works. This is not a program for the novice to just pick up and start from ground zero! Not by any means. It is a very impressive, yet very complex piece of software, and unless you are in the know about the mechanics and the logistics of the WWW, then don't waste your money on the exuberant price tag of FrontPage 2002. Back to the manual, it makes reference to books that are available on how to use this program! Yes, can you believe that? The program, which is a good chunk of monetary expenditure, does not come with suitable instructions on how to get around in this program, but gives you the names of the books and the authors who wrote them. Another s
uave move by Microsoft! (I'm still highly annoyed that you can not use Win XP on more than one computer without buying another full copy of the O/S). However, for those who are internet savvy, and know how to publish files via FTP (File Transfer Protocol), and can figure out how to do what this program is supposed to do, it will make your life much easier, as it is packed with so many features, capabilities, utilities and upgrades (supposedly, compared to the previous version FrontPage 2000). Couple this program with another phenomenal program by Jasc Software, that being Paint Shop Pro version 7 which includes Animation Shop version 3.
