Summary

Dividing a site into multiple subWebs makes administrative and authoring tasks, such as changing themes, publishing changes, and even finding specific files, easier. In addition, if you have a large Web site, you can use subWebs to keep track of each author's work by assigning each author his/her own subWebs. This article describes how to divide a large root Web into several smaller subWebs.

More information

To divide a large root Web into several smaller subWebs, use the appropriate method for your version of FrontPage.
  1. On the File menu, point to New, and then click FrontPage Web.
  2. In the New FrontPage Web dialog box, click the From Wizard Or Template option. From the list of templates, click Empty Web. In the Choose a Title for your FrontPage Web box, type the title for your subWebs.

    NOTE: Make sure you see the correct address for the Web server and subweb below the title, for example:
    http://localhost/mysubweb
    If the address is incorrect, click Change and type the path for the subweb so that it looks similar to the example above.
  3. Click OK.
  4. On the File menu, click Import.
  5. In the "Import File to FrontPage Web" dialog box, click Add File.
  6. In the Add File to Import List dialog box, click Browse and locate your root Web.

    The following table shows the typical locations for the root Web of common Web servers. The actual location may vary depending on the installation options of FrontPage and of the Web Server.
          Web Server                              Location
          --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
          FrontPage Personal Web Server           C:\FrontPage Webs\Content
          Microsoft Personal Web Server           C:\Webshare\Wwwroot
          Microsoft Internet Information Server   C:\Inetpub\Wwwroot
          Microsoft Peer Web Server               C:\Inetpub\Wwwroot
    
       NOTE: You can press CTRL and click each file you want to add to the
             subweb.
    						
  7. Click Open and click OK.
  8. Repeat steps 1 through 7 to create the subWebs for the Web site.
  9. Open the root Web and delete the files that you imported into the subweb.

    NOTES: If you want to use hyperlinks to move from the root Web to a subweb or between subWebs, you must use an absolute hyperlink like the following:
    http://example.microsoft.com/examplesubweb (http://example.microsoft.com/examplesubweb)
    Also, if you use shared borders and navigation bars, you may experience some problems. For additional information about using navigation bars to link to pages outside the current Web, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
