Access the Components menu pictured to the right by
selecting Insert|Component from the menu bar. To make
the menu its own floating toolbar, click and drag the blue bar
at the top of the menu. You must save the web page first to be
able to use all of the components listed.
The Include feature allows you to display one page within
another. This can often be helpful when placing copyright
notices or menu links that appear identically on many pages.
The copyright notice, for example, can be typed into a
separate file and then that one file can be linked to all the
pages in the web site. When the copyright changes, only the
include file needs to be changed instead of correcting the
copyright text on every individual web page.
To add an include page to another web page, first place the
cursor on the page where the include file's contents should
appear. Then, select Insert|Component|Include Page from
the menu bar. Click the Browse... button to select the
page you want to include and click OK. The include
page's contents will appear on the destination page, but the
contents can only be modified by opening the include page
Setting scheduled elements will automatically change page content
on a given date. Add a scheduled picture by selecting
Insert|Component|Scheduled Picture... from the menu bar.
Select the picture and choose an optional image to show before and
after the scheduled time. Then, set the starting and ending time
period. In this example, a picture of a pumpkin is added to the site
for the entire month of October. Click OK when finished.
Scheduled Include Page
A scheduled Include page can be added in a similar way that a
scheduled picture is inserted. Select Insert|Component|Scheduled
Include Page... from the menu bar, select the file, and set the
Date and Time
It is always advantageous to include a "last updated" date on the
bottom of the web page so visitors know how recent the material is.
FrontPage can automatically update this date whenever the page is
saved. Place the cursor on the page where the date should appear and
select Insert|Date and Time... from the menu bar. If the page
is set up to automatically update and this date should be reflected
as the "last update", check the "Date this page was last
automatically updated" box. Select a Date format and if the
time should also appear, select the Time format. Click
OK when finished.
Add a search form to the web site by selecting
Insert|Component|Search Form from the menu bar. This feature
will automatically create a simple search form:
Customize the search form from the properties window.
Label for Input is the text that
appears before the search text box

of the search text box
