FrontPage Extensions

FrontPage Server Extensions are programs that run on the web server to handle server side processing of components that are built into FrontPage, such as search forms, hit counters etc.

Microsoft has discontinued FrontPage Server Extensions for Linux servers. The official end of life was reached on June 30, 2006. Due to these circumstances, we will no longer support FrontPage Extensions for Linux-based packages.

Can I still use FrontPage for my website?

You should still be able to use Front Page software.  You will publish using FTP, instead of FrontPage Extensions.  See below for instructions for your version of FrontPage software:

Please note that several functions/features will no longer work, without FrontPage Extensions on the server.  Some of these features include:

  • Locking files so that only one author at a time can modify a page.
  • Creating, deleting, and renaming webs and sub-webs
  • Automatically updating hyperlinks when you rename files
  • Automatically generating a list of hyperlinks
  • Style Sheet links to multiple files
  • Incorporating database access in a web
  • Enabling other Microsoft Office 2000 applications to save directly to a Web server
  • Hit Counters
  • Registration form handler
  • Search form
  • Discussion form handler
  • Confirmation Field
If you have any further questions, feel free to contact Support.
