Microsoft FrontPage 2003 was and still is an excellent, but underrated HTML editor, a real masterpiece of Microsoft software engineering. If very powerful, very flexible (for example it can be used without FrontPage extensions) and amazingly user-friendly. But at the same time this is a complex & powerful professional tool. I definitely prefer it to Dreamweaver. In comparison with Dreamweaver it is a better designed HTML editor. After Adobe bought it became a typical Adobe product. And that fact alone implies a lot of negativity ;-).

Frontpage 2003 was designed for Windows XP, but can be installed and used on Windows 7, including 64-bit version.

Despite being very powerful, professional tool, the basic subset that allow create Web pages is very easy to learn. Full mastery requires years of intensive work, though. And probably significant talent. VBA programming knowledge is a must.

Books that are needed when you want to take it to the limits (write complex macros, work with the complex web layout, etc) or to correct its idiosyncrasies simply do not exist.  All books that I came across are introductory books. You need to master FrontPage VBA using VBA books for MS Word and experiment to se the differences and adapt macros.  Only this gives you an ability to use Frontpage most advanced capabilities.

FrontPage 2003 is the last and the most advanced version of FrontPage. It is capable of maintaining very large sites, with, say, more then 10K HTML pages. After release of Frontpage 2003, Microsoft renamed it to Expression Web and substantially modified using team from Dreamweaver project, spoiling the product.  Later Expression Web 4.0 was released by Microsoft as Freeware. See Microsoft FrontPage and Microsoft Expression Web

Frontpage 2003 supports (better late then never ;-) regular expressions in find and replace. The drawback is that the version of regular expressions supported in not Perl-style regular expressions. Engine used is Microsoft internally developer regex engine which is somewhat idiosyncratic and buggy.  And this wrong solution  was never reversed in Expression Web, which is another sign of the quality of the Expression Web team. Or more correctly of the lack of thereof.

Unfortunately while it is an excellent, amazing HTML editor, there is no really excellent, blockbuster book on Frontpage, covering this part of its functionality. Just functionality of an HTML editor of unsurpassed quality. And forgetting all those Microsoft  specific things.  And writing such a book is very difficult, if not impossible, as the audience is very diverse and the way Frontpage is used in LAMP environment is different then they way it is used in ASP environment. I, for example, almost never used Microsoft extensions (OK I used them on one Web site that I created), while working with Frontpage for almost 20 years (I started using it in late 1997).

And despite my best efforts and daily usage of the product, I can't say that I fully mastered the product during all those years, although I definitely learned some neat tricks (some of which I forgot and rediscover them reading my page ;-).  What is bad that despite buying almost every worthwhile FrontPage book on the market I never come across the one that really delves deep into Frontpage advanced functionality. For example the art of writing Frontpage macros. All you have here is a couple of articles from Microsoft website. And of course the power of your own experimentation.

Among the book that I can recommend:

Again, I would like to stress that, unfortunately, no published book covers macro programming in sufficient details. If you are looking to learn this from the books you are in depp disadvantage.  That same is true for ASP programming

That means that any book on FrontPage requires a supplementary text on scripting (both VBA for macro programming and JavaScript or VBScript for ASP).

You can probably reuse some macro books on MS Word and even MS Word macro recorder (Frontpage, unfortunately, does not have its own macrorecoder), modifying manually inconsistencies and trying to make them work. This is the way I got some limited success in this area.

[Aug 26, 2018] Can I run MS Front Page 2003 on Windows 10

Notable quotes:
"... Although FrontPage was not evaluated, Andre Da Costa found that core programs of Office such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and Publisher back through Office 2000 work just fine on Windows 10. ..."
Aug 26, 2018 |
They changed the title of my original post so I thought I'd try it again: I Know that my web sites will work on windows 10 but:

I run a website I started in 1996, 385 pages and built with old school html and (when it came out) MS Front Page. I've modified many pages of these old pages to be w3c compliant using good old html. It is super hot in the search engines and works excellent in all browsers and on all mobile devices. Front Page 2003 is like putting on a comfortable pair of shoes. Yes, I've tried Dream Weaver and all the other "options" but it doesn't do a very good job with the original code, in fact some of the modifications and programs I have tried have been a disaster. SO I'm currently running windows 7 with the xp package to support Microsoft Front Page Version 2003. My server guys have no issues with the MS Front Page Extensions and it is very fast and stable. What do you think the chances are of running MS Front Page 2003 on Windows 10? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Original Title: FrontPage 2003


Though MS does indeed say that FP is not compatible (MS says that versions of Office older that Office 2007 are incompatible with Win10.) , that does not mean that it will not install and run. You might be happily surprised. In my experience MS tends to discourage the use of older programs even if they will run.

Although FrontPage was not evaluated, Andre Da Costa found that core programs of Office such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and Publisher back through Office 2000 work just fine on Windows 10.

Reference: A look at running older versions of Microsoft Office on Windows 10:

With that said if you are dependent upon FPSE then you might start looking for an alternative to FP. MS quit support of the server extensions many years ago and the number of web hosts that offer them are becoming few and far between.

Eventually you should plan on them not being available and should start looking to migrate your sites to another program. Better now before it is too late.


[Aug 26, 2018] How to Set Compatibility Mode for Apps in Windows 10 by Melanie Pinola

Running Frontpage2003 on windows 10 requires using compatibility mode. Some features like "Most recent files" do not work even with this mode.
Aug 24, 2015 |

Most software created for previous versions of Windows run well in Windows 10, but you might have some older apps that don't work well or even at all with the new operating system. You can try to fix any issues you have running these older desktop programs in Windows 10 by changing their compatibility mode settings.

Windows has a built-in tool called Program Compatibility Troubleshooter that could automatically fix any compatibility problems for you. If the troubleshooter can't fix the problem, you can manually make an app run in compatibility mode, which will run the app using the settings from an earlier version of Windows. You can have the troubleshooter automatically search for apps that could have issues in Windows 10 or manually run the troubleshooter on a specific app. Here's how to do both.

How to Use Windows' Program Compatibility Troubleshooter

1. In the taskbar search box, enter "run programs", then click "Run programs made for previous versions of Windows."


2. Click Next and the troubleshooter will try to detect potential issues with your apps.

3. Select the app that's having issues in the next window and click Next.
select app

4. Select a troubleshooting option: use the recommended compatibility setting or choose compatibility settings yourself.
Try recommended

If you choose to use the recommended settings, the troubleshooter will test the app using a previous version of Windows so you can see if that resolves the issue.

test compatibiilty

If you choose the choose to troubleshoot the app, the troubleshooter will ask you which problems you're experiencing. Depending on your selection, the troubleshooter will offer tests and suggestions to resolve the problem, such as testing the display settings for the app.

select problems

5. Click the Test the program button and then click Next.

You can then either choose to save the settings for the app, try different settings, or report the problem to Microsoft and view help articles online.

Choose settings

You'll have to run the troubleshooter for each app you're having compatibility problems with.

How to Run an App in Compatibility Mode

Alternatively, you can go into a app's properties to change its compatibility mode settings. With compatibility mode, you can force an app to use settings from an earlier version of Windows -- helpful if you know the app ran well in, say, Windows 7 or Vista. You can also change the display and color settings for the app.

1. Right-click on an app and select Properties. You can do this from the app's shortcut or by navigating in File Browser to the EXE file.

select properties

2. Select the Compatibility tab, then check the box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
check run as

3. S elect the version of Windows to use for your app's settings in the dropdown box.
select windows version

4. Hit Apply , then run your app and see if this fixed your issues.


[Aug 26, 2018] FrontPage to Windows 10

Notable quotes:
"... I have MS Expressions Web 4 which is now free as MS is discontinuing it, and it's running on a Windows 10 PC. I used FP, but this upgrade is now free. ..."
Jul 29, 2015 |


I have been a happy user of FrontPage. Bought 2007 Expression Web and it worked fine with my Windows XP Professional.
I have not used it all since 2008 and want your recommendations what to do as I want to start using Expression Web again making changes to my different Web Pages.
I want to use my new laptop today with windows 8.1, that I will upgrade to Windows 10 in the near future.

I read about all the problems Windows 8,1 has occurred and I want to be free from that that's why I would be very pleased to get your professional recommendations what to do.

Thankful for your advise

[Apr 22, 2018] Understanding the Libraries Feature in Windows 7

Looks to me like soft links -- ability to have directories from all over the place grouped as links in a single folder.
They can be used in applications that do not have Favorites feature, like Frontpage, to imitate frontapge.
You can create as many libraries as you wish. It's not nessesary to merge multiple folders in one library.
Apr 22, 2018 |

The libraries feature in Windows 7 provides a central place to manage files that are located in multiple locations throughout your computer. Instead of clicking through a bunch of directories to find the files you need, including them in a library makes for quicker access.

[Jul 08, 2013] Faster Smarter Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003 by William R. Stanek, Greg Holden

This is a good intermediate book for FrontPage 2003

A Customer

Excellent...does what I expected, February 22, 2004

As a recent DreamWeaver to FrontPage switcher, this book has been invaluable to me. Even with the easy Windows GUI and 2 years of design experience I found this book to be a great read and reference. I expected this book to target the end-user and designers and in that respect it met my expectations. Faster Smart FrontPage 2003 is exactly what it claims to be: a faster smarter way to learn FrontPage 2003. I was pleasantly surprised when I found the authors emphasized sound design and put in many under-the-hood details. Those little details make all the difference.

It is filled with a ton of *good* info ranging from very basic to fairly in-depth. The material is well-organized and well-laid out, making it easy to read, easy to use.

This is a great book whether you're relatively new to FrontPage or have some experience. If you have already know FrontPage 2003 or have many years of advanced experience, you'll probably want to use this book only as a quick reference for how to get something done. If you are looking for an expert book this isn't it.

Having switched to FrontPage 2003 I was left wondering exactly how to do things. FrontPage is easy to use but there are a lot of times when you need help and this book is a big help. The writing style is both thorough and concise and does a good job of bridging the gap between complete novice and intermediate user needs. Last, the book is very current when it comes to design and does a good job of steering you around design pitfalls.

[Dec 1, 2003] Special Edition Using Office Microsoft FrontPage 2003 by Paul Colligan

One of few Frontpage book that contains a small (and not that informative) chapter about VBA programming. Other then that this is a average book.

Editorial Reviews

This book captures the reality of designing Web sites with FrontPage today. The emphasis is on how to design professional looking sites, how to keep them current with effective content management techniques, and how to do both while working toward the crucial goals of strong communication and interaction.

The Designing section of the book takes you through all of FrontPage's features, which is of great value, whether you're a beginning or advanced user. Everything about the software is covered, with increased emphasis in this edition on advanced topics such as scripting, databases, and the design of site interaction. The creation of effective interaction is featured throughout the book, as are the principles of effective communication. The next section, FrontPage Scenarios, takes you stage-by-stage through the design of specific sites, ranging from personal sites to creating and managing a corporate intranet.

The accompanying CD provides a FREE copy of Woody's Office Power Pack (WOPR)--the #1 enhancement to Office. This software sells for $49.99 but you get it for free here--no strings attached.

3 Books on learning FrontPage 2003

I actually bought 3 books: Microsoft FrontPage 2003 Step-by-Step, Microsoft FrontPage 2003 Inside-Out, and Que Special Edition Using FrontPage 2003.

Step-by-step is a very useful starting point, but you'll soon run out of this book. By far, the best of the 3 is Que's Using FrontPage 2003 - it is excellent! FrontPage 2003 Inside-Out is good IF you're interested in Active Server Pages.

But all in all - if you want to buy just one I recommend Que Special Edition Using FrontPage 2003. The format lets you learn by solving problems that you run into. For example, you want find out about Banners, the book not only answers your questions but gives you the background and advise on using the feature. And the author is very candid about suggesting when to use and NOT use a particular feature. The authors obviously have used the product for real-world web sites and really wanted to share their experiences and knowledge.

[Oct 31, 2003] Books FrontPage 2003 Bible

A reader from Stamford, CT United States

2 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing, November 2, 2003

This book obviously reflects a beta version of FrontPage 2003 -- much critical information is either missing or just plain wrong.

Also, it's not nearly as filled with insights and explanatory information as many similar books: often, there's nothing added to what appears in the actual program's menus and wizards. The book was poorly edited and its content flow very disjointed. Its graphics are not particularly useful.

This book is simply a poorly updated version of an earlier version, obviously rushed to market to be the first out of the gate. I recommend that folks try other books.

jimborg (see more about me) from Miami Beach, FL

2 out of 5 stars Not too good..., September 24, 2003

As an experienced Frontpage user I was looking for lots of info on new Frontpage 2003 features that would show how "great" this new release is according to the hype I've heard... Anyway, this book doesn't even acknowledge the existence of Windows Server 2003 and really offers very little (if any) info on the integration of ASP.NET into Frontpage 2003 websites.

Basically, I'd say this is for new users - not advanced users. Even for new users - I didn't find it particularly well organized at all. I get the impression it was rushed to print.

5 out of 5 stars All round very good value., November 23, 2002

This is quite a pithy focused text on Frontpage. Unusually useful (despite the editorial review cited above of course you won't learn all those scripting languages mentioned).

The book quickly cuts through a lot of Frontpage flannel in order to expose the best aspects of the application. Topics are presented briskly and intelligently. Personally, I was surprised at how much I got out of it.

I was really reluctant to loan it to one of my postgrads which is the usual indicator of whether I truly value a book or not.

3 out of 5 stars Complete, Yet Shallow...?, January 22, 2000

This is the second "Unleashed" Book that I have purchased, and I find them useful, but choppy. The chapters have different authors, and the continuity suffers from this treatment.

Each chapter gives a complete overview of the subject it covers. The key phrase here is "complete overview", as the in-depth detail that many of the new features of FP 2000 has over its predecessors is not there.

This is a good overview of FP 2000 for the intermediate user who has used other versions of FP. I would recommend that beginners or advanced users look elsewhere.

If you are looking for detailed descriptions or examples of FP 2000's new features, look elsewhere. If you plan on using database integration, ASP, DHTML or CSS and you buy this book -- budget to buy at least one more book to cover these advanced features.

In sum, I feel this is a good book for a book report about FP 2000 for a high school class; as a "hands-on" guide for real users, this book is not it.

Geoffrey Brown (see more about me) from Connecticut, USA

5 out of 5 stars Incredibly useful, June 2, 2000

I had built a number of web sites using native HTML and one using FP2000 intuitively, without any books to follow. My impression of FP2000 at that time was that it was a little bit like Geocities -- quick and dirty, easy templates, that's it.

Then, a client insisted that I build his business site using FP2000. At that point, I bought this book and started using it. The book was a MAJOR eye-opener about the capabilities of FP2000, and I was like a kid in a candy store while building that site -- largely because of this book!

The book is easy to read (I actually read it cover-to-cover, all 930 pages), although there is definitely a major jump in difficulty when the section on ASP begins.

There's no doubt in my mind that this book is worth every one of the five stars I awarded it. The places where I had minor problems with it were trivial compared with the help it offered. To show how trivial they were, here were my MAJOR problems with the book: (1)I found the discussions of IP addressing (127.0.0.n and 10.0.0.n on pages 815 and 891) somewhat contradictory. (2)I use a lot of Adobe Acrobat stuff on my sites, and was disappointed not to see even an index entry for that extremely common medium. In fact, it would have been nice if they had acknowledged more of the sources of content that many, many people use -- like Paint Shop Pro. (3) It was a little annoying that all books recommended for further reading were those published by McGraw Hill -- even when a book published by, say, O'Reilly is THE authoritative book on a subject. (However, that's typically not the author's fault, usually it's the fault of a publisher who gets a little greedy.)

Summary: if you're thinking about building a web site in FP2000, you should get this book. If you build web sites and you think FP2000 isn't worth considering for building serious web sites, you REALLY should get this book. The book, and my experience with it, actually convinced me to convert some of the native HTML sites I built and still maintain to FP2000 to make the maintenance task easier.

Reviewer: Fernando Soares (see more about me) from Modesto, California, United States

5 out of 5 stars One of the best books for FrontPage 2000, May 14, 2000
I bought this book on the recommendation of a friend and I must say that in most respects he was right. I have used this book for about six months and I have to say that it has served me well all this time. The book does a great job at explaining clearly and concisely all the steps and other related information about FrontPage. I would not only recommend this book for beginners but also for advanced user that needs in-depth information to create advanced web sites in FrontPage. It has been a very useful resource that I would recommend for anyone that is looking a reference book for Microsoft FrontPage.

Solid overview of FrontPage 98 and web authoring basics.
Have had FrontPage 98 on my computer for 6 months and never used it. Bought David's book and have been very impressed.

Has made starting my own personal web site much easier and fun than if I had tried to start using FrontPage98 without knowing anything. Look forward to reading more of his books. Great content for people who want to use FrontPage98 to author webpages, but do not want to make a career out of learning the program.

A good introduction to this complex program

There may be bigger books about FP98 out there, but this one is just right--all the information you need to get started using the program, but not an overwhelming flood of data. All the basics and a few bells and whistles are well covered. Karlin's website and his email support are also excellent.
