To install the drop menu into your html page you should do the following things:
You can enter any name you like, for example enter "menu":
So you'll have menu.html file and "menu-files" folder with all menu files.
- Start FrontPage and open your website. When the website opens, it should look like this:
- To create the shared border page you should do the following things:
- Make sure "All pages" is chosen in the 'Apply to' section. Check the "Top" checkbox to activate the top shared border page and click the OK button to close the dialog.
Notice that you can choose any other shared border position to install the drop menu as well.
- Now you can add a menu for your site. Open the shared border page (double-click top.htm in Folder list window) and switch to the Design view mode. Decide where you would like the menu to appear in your page. Click in the spot you want the code to appear in and type the phrase: your code here
- Open the generated in Vista Buttons menu.html
page in any text editor. Copy all code within the following tags:
- Go back to FrontPage. Switch to HTML View. Go to the "Edit Menu" with FrontPage and select the "Paste" option to paste the menu code that we copied to the clipboard earlier. Since the phrase we typed was highlighted, it will be replaced when we paste the code in.

- Now you should copy the "menu-files" folder into the same folder with your top.html shared border. (You should show hidden files to see files of your website. Go to "Tools/Folder options").
- Notice that in the Design mode your menu may be displayed not in the proper way. You should view the menu in the Preview mode.
- Select the Preview mode to display the top.html page live (in Internet Explorer). Notice that your mouseover images can be not displayed when you hover over menu items in the Preview mode. It is normal. You'll see all images when you open index.htm page in the Preview mode.
- That's all. You've added all necessary code to your page, so let's test it. Open your index page (double-click index.htm in Folder list window) and switch to the Preview mode.
- If everything goes well, save and publish your website. If something seems wrong, double-check that you followed all the steps correctly.
