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 time period.
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
