FrontPage 2000 Web Template Tutorial:
A navigation bar is a set of hyperlinks used for
navigating a Web site. You can display a navigation bar on every
page in your web so that your site visitors can always get to the web's
main pages, quickly and easily. Before you create your own Navigation
Bars, you need to set up a Navigation Structure of your web
first, and then let FrontPage create the Navigation Bars
1. On the View menu, click Navigation.
2. You will see the Navigation Structure of this
You are at the Tutorials page right now.
Other pages in this navigation structure are sample pages. You can
delete them, add a new/existing page to the structure or simply change
the title of a page.
Change the title of a page
Right click a page in the navigation structure and select
Delete a page
Right click the page you want to delete and select Delete.
Add a new page
1. On the View menu, select Page
2. On the File menu, select New, and then
3. On the General tab, you will see a list of page
templates to choose from. Double click ICE_Sunset
4. Save the new page. (You will notice that there is no
banner and navigation bars, but don't worry about it now.)
5. Now switch to Navigation Structure by selecting
Navigation from the View menu
6. On the toolbar, select Folder List button
Now you have Folder List on the left hand side and Navigation
Structure on the right hand side.
7. Click the newly created page in the Folder List
and drag the page to the position in the Navigation Structure where
you want it. Rename the title of the page if you want to.
8. Double click the page. This will take you to
the page view. Now you see the banner and navigation bars.
Navigation Bar Property
1. Double click the vertical Navigation Bar on
the left hand side
2. You will see the Navigation Bar Property dialog
similar to the following picture.
3. In order to understand the Navigation Bar
Properties, we need to take a look at the Navigation Structure
of this web again.
Home Page: This page
is the first page added to a navigation structure, typically named index.htm
or default.htm, and is indicated by
Pages: "Location" and "FAQ" are the Top-Level Pages
(Not including Home Page)
"Tutorial 2000", "Tutorial 2002", "Company Info", "Products" and
"Contact Us" are the Child-Level Pages of "Home". "Products" has
two Child-Level Pages.
Include the parent page of another page, plus pages that are directly
connected to the parent page on the same level. For example, the
parent-level pages for "Company Info" are "Home" (parent page), "Location",
and "FAQ". The parent-level pages for "Orders" are "Products" (parent
page), "Tutorial 2000", "Tutorial 2002", "Company Info", and "Contact
Same Level Pages:
Include pages that are on the same level and have the same
parent page. For example, "Tutorial 2000", "Tutorial 2002", "Company Info",
"Products", and "Contact Us" are same level.
Back and Next:
This is for browsing a sequence of same level pages.
For example, the next page of "Tutorial 2002" is "Company Info".
The previous page of "Location" is "Home".
The rest of the features in the Navigation Bar Properties
are pretty self explanatory. Practice for a while before you build
Add a Banner and Navigation Bars to a page
If you accidentally delete the page banners or navigation
bars, you can still restore them and of course the page has to be in the
Navigation Structure first.
1. On the Insert menu, select Page Banner
and type the text you want to display in the page banner.
2. Again, on the Insert menu, select Navigation
Bar. Select the type of hyperlinks, orientation and
appearance you want on the navigation bar.
