Front Page - General
How do I connect to my website in Front Page or SharePoint Designer 2007 or Expression Web?
To access your site in Front Page 2003 or SharePoint Designer 2007 or Expression Web follow these steps:

The basic steps are:

You need Front Page 2003 or SharePoint Designer 2007 (not 2010 - 2010 will not work). The web office, at this writing, prefers SharePoint 2007 or Expression Web.

1. Open Front Page or SharePoint Designer or Expression Web.
2. Click File > Open Site. (if using Expression Web, click Site > Open Site)
3. In the "Site name" field, enter the web address or URL of the site (e.g. http://www.salisbury.edu/diversity).
4. Click Open.

If you are prompted to login, enter salisbury\yourusername or the user email address as the username and your regular network/email password as the password (this will be required from off-campus computers)

5. Your site should open.

Henceforth - the site should be available from your "My Network Places" area or in the "Recent Sites" in Front Page (click File > Recent Sites) unless you are using a lab computer.

Also - you can browse to the site in Internet Explorer and then click File > "Edit with Microsoft Office..."

End.
