Cannot upload my web page

Cannot upload my web page

Cannot upload my web page

I have tried AOL, Tripod, and Angelfire with no luck. I get extention errors, ULR errors and a few other errors. I have been tring for 4 days stright does anyone have an easy solution to uploading pages.

RE: Cannot upload my web page

I can't tell from your message what you're doing.  Are you trying to load the web page by using Front Page's publish function?  That might be the problem.  I'm on Geocities, and they only recently have set things up so you can load from Front Page.  I'll bet that the web sites you listed haven't upgraded their software to do that.  Try loading the page using their software and see if that works.

You need to have Front-page extensions activated in order to upload through front-page.  I know that Tripod has front-page extensions, but you probably have to request that they be turned ON.  Go to the tripod homepage and search "front-page" or make a customer service inquiry.  I don't believe angelfire or aol has front-page extensions.  The other option is to upload your file using FTP if the server doesn't have front-page extensions.  Refer to your manual for more details, but simply, you publish web, and type in ftp:// in place of http:// followed by your pathname (www.yourname.com).  This will publish without extensions, so some features won't work (like forms).

RE: Cannot upload my web page

I have found that when using AOL to upload/publish pages, I have the most success by first going to "Windows Explorer" and then going to my Frontpage files and highlighting the ones I want to publish, click on "File" and then "Send To" and then I use "Web Publishing Wizard".  Works every time!  

RE: Cannot upload my web page

I have found that to "Publish" using Front Page to an AOL web site, first you need to log on to the AOL screen name you are publishing to.  Then minimize AOL to view the desktop.  Launch Front Page and allow Front Page to use AOL's Access.  When publishing use anonymous for a logon and the screen name for a password.  You should be able to access the AOL area to publish the web page.

RE: Cannot upload my web page

Don't forget that uploading by FTP and using FrontPage's Publish are two completely different ways to get your site to the server.  Publish uses FP extensions, which are necessary for many FP features.
