FrontPage 2003 Borders Showing incorrectly in Browser

by allison501 / April 11, 2006 3:17 AM PDT

Using FP 2003 on an Windows XP machine, using IE 7.0 browser....appears to be the same issue with 6.0 browser as though...


placing rollovers in FP borders, is not displaying on page. Examination of the source code after the page is published shows that rollover icons are not listed the same as in code examination inside from page, left border.

FP source says the icon are in the right directory location, but reviewing the "show source" in IE browser is showing them not to be in the correct directory, hence why they are not showing.... they should all be as this :

="_borders/Left/ as in line 3, lines 5, 7, 9, and 11 are not showing the correct driectory structure to correctly identify the icon required to make the rollover work correctly. <td><a href="Conservation.htm"> <img border="0" id="img208" src="_borders/Left/button4.jpg" height="16" width="80" alt="Conservation" onmouseover="FP_swapImg(1,0,/*id*/'img208',/*url*/'Left/button5.jpg')" onmouseout="FP_swapImg(0,0,/*id*/'img208',/*url*/'Left/button4.jpg')" onmousedown="FP_swapImg(1,0,/*id*/'img208',/*url*/'Left/button6.jpg')" onmouseup="FP_swapImg(0,0,/*id*/'img208',/*url*/'Left/button5.jpg')" fp-style="fp-btn: Embossed Capsule 2; fp-font-style: Bold; fp-font-size: 8; fp-font-color-normal: #008000; fp-font-color-hover: #800000" fp-title="Conservation"></a></td> </tr> <tr>

....any suggestions....all help appriciated

Sounds like a bug.

1. Update the software from it's maker.
2. If not fixed, call it in. Microsoft doesn't charge you if it's a bonafide bug.

Problem Solved, May Still Be Bug....But It works Now

Well, I found the answer myself by piece mealing some scribblings from Microsoft Tech Aid, and my current knowledge of FP and server side extensions.

Anyway the work around is simple, just open the border page itself and hard code the directory values with a document wide search and replace, while making sure not change the values in the FP-Preloads area....Only in the individual button code itself.

We've always had the ability to hand code the HTML, but if you change something and FP rewrites your hand written code then that's a bug.

If it does this, I predict you'll stop using FP after awhile.
