Adding Pages

Page templates available for this product are shown in the What's Included section of this web.  To add a new page to your web in FrontPage, go to the Folder List (View, Folder List) and open the template or your choice.  As soon as it is open, select File, Save AS... - then save it as the name you want your new page to have. 

Getting the New Page into the Site Map

After saving your new page with the name of your choice, go to the Navigation view (View, Navigation).  Is your Folder List open as well? If not, the go to View, Folder LIST to open it.

Next, locate the new filename in the Folder List (it's probably at the bottom), left click over it and while holding down the left mouse button, drag it over into the Navigation Structure and drop it where you want it, so that it is underneath either the Home page or another existing page.  Repeat every time you wish to add a new page!

About the Drop Down Menu System

This template uses the LeoMega DDM drop-down menu system, which is an easy-to-use program that plugs in to FrontPage.  The LeoMega DDM Version 1.0 Limited program is included with this template, and is useable for 90 days from the date of installation, at which time you may opt to license the full version software. 

Locate the file LeoMegaDDM.exe in the folder list of the web and double-click it to run the setup program.  After you have executed the program, you may delete the file from your folder list, or simply move it to a different location on your hard drive.  Please refer to the LeoMega 1.0 Limited Version User Manual for full instructions.

If you do not wish to install or subsequently license the LeoMega DDM add-in, then you may either try your hand at manually adjusting the menu (see below), or delete the menu entirely and use standard FrontPage navigation.

Adjusting the Menu Manually

If you are moderately comfortable with "hacking away" at HTML code, then you can probably modify the drop-down menu yourself with little or no problems.  Open the file "ddm_menu.js" in FrontPage.  The top section has the URL links and corresponding Link Name.

Here is a snippet of the code for the first two links of a typical site:

leomegastr= leomegastr + "<tr>";
leomegastr= leomegastr + "<td>";
leomegastr= leomegastr + "<a class=\"item1\" href=\"index.htm\" id=1,0>Home Page</a>";
leomegastr= leomegastr + "</td>";
leomegastr= leomegastr + "<td>";
leomegastr= leomegastr + "<a class=\"item1\" target=\"\" & href=\"introduction.htm\" id=2,0>Introduction</a>";

leomegastr= leomegastr + "<div class=\"section\">";
leomegastr= leomegastr + "<a class=\"item2\" target=\"\" & href=\"adding_pages.htm\" id=2,1>Adding Pages</a>";

leomegastr= leomegastr + "<a class=\"item2\" target=\"\" & href=\"style_sheets.htm\" id=2,2>Style Sheets</a>";

leomegastr= leomegastr + "<a class=\"item2\" target=\"\" & href=\"license_agreement.htm\" id=2,3>License Agreement</a>";
leomegastr= leomegastr + "</div>";
leomegastr= leomegastr + "</td>";


Item number:  The level on the menu.  Item1 is top level, Item2 is level 2, etc.
ID:  Identification of menu level and position of display in the menu
Link Display Name:  This is what shows up in the menu bar itself
a href:  This is the actual html file name being linked to the Link Display Name
Special Notes:  Note that each sub-level is enclosed within <div> tags
