Managing Content with Categories by Garridon
Posted: 6 Mar 02 (Edited 26 Mar 02)

One of the great additions to FrontPage 2002 is the ability to create a table of contents by using categories.  You can use this virtually anywhere, not just on a site index.  For instance, you can put a what's new component on your main page, which automatically lists only the newest items.  Or you can do an automatic list of PowerPoint presentations or Word documents.

The first step is to add the categories to your various files.  The easiest way is to show all your files in Folder View (VIEW>FOLDERS).  Right click on the file to bring up the shortcut menu.  Choose Properties.

In the Properties dialog box, click on Workgroup.  Then click the Categories button to add a new category of your own.  Return back to the Available Categories list in the properties dialog box and check the desired category.  Also make sure update the page title since this what FrontPage will list for a link.

Then go the page you want to insert the table of contents on.  Choose INSERT>WEB COMPONENT>TABLE OF CONTENTS>BASED ON PAGE CATEGORY.  When you click the FINISH button, it'll ask you to choose what category you want to assign to it.

Each page can have more than one category, and each component can have more than one category. This is a great tool that can save you a lot of time if you have a big site.
