Using FrontPage? (5 posts)

    Are there any problem modifying WP or a template that I may use with MS FrontPage? I know FrontPage bloats the code, but is this a serious problem? Are there any other solid reasons why I shouldn't use FrontPage? My reason for wanting to use FrontPage is that I know it and I wouldn't have to undergo a new learning curve.

    Thanks for your help.

    Don't use FrontPage for WP. It wont wok!

  3. And it won't work becasue the WordPress pages are all php, which won't run on your Windows machine, unless you're running a webserver. (and even then, don't use front page! :D)

    Best thing to do is edit stff live in a test area.

    I use FrontPage to set up my WP 1.5 and have no problems. In fact it is easier than working with a general text editor and uploading using FTP. Also you can open php pages in FrontPage and work on the "text/notepad" format and then just click save and refresh and boom! your page and changes are saved instantly on the server. There may be some limitations - which I haven't come across yet but so far so good.

    so can I install the software on my local windows server with frontpage and then publish it to the Apache server where the database is located?
    I am accustomed to frontpage 2003 and that would make it easier for me.
