No sexi videos but solid informative texts








I have used MS Frontpage since 1997, first in Windows 95, the Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows Vista, Windows 8, Windows 10 and now in Windows 11. Let me tell you, it works perfectly fine. Every time I upgraded both the version of MS Frontage and of Windows. Contrary to what people want you to believe, MS Frontpage can be used and uploaded without a special server on any hosting service. Originally, Frontpage had some proprietary features that could only work when the host server would host a proprietary hosting drive. This was particularly true for what was called the "shared borders". But nowadays very few hosts still host with these proprietary servers. The good news is, you don't want those "shared borders" anyway as they look very dated. A good menu will serve you just fine. So this is what you do to get rid of those shared borders and you can host your website perfectly well. I use https://www.sideground.com, for all my 7 MS Frontpage websites on a perfectly normal Apache server. I changed from the best known host, Godaddy, after it became greedy and started to make it excessively expensive to host 7 websites. Siteground also increased its costs, but not as excessively. But of course, do shop around for the best deal you can find because you can host a Frontpage developed website on any hosting server.


This is why you should consider using MS Frontpage:

  1. While it started out with so-called borders that allowed web developers to facilitate shifting browsing through a website, you can turn it off, and then it becomes a great Wysiwyg website computer-based website editor;

  2. I have tried many computer-based editors and this is the most user-friendly program ever built. In fact, still no other program has the easy user interface that FrontPage has. All other offerings either require you to know a thing or two about HTML, or simply haven't been updated in years;

  3. Building a large website using MS-Frontpage is 10 time faster than online web development programs including Wordpress;

  4. MS-Frontpage can be managed by themes or styles. The available themes are totally outdated, so don't use them. With styles and Javascript you can format any lay-out you wish;

  5. MS-Frontpage allows you to make perfectly functioning cellphone/mobile phone scalable websites;

  6. By inserting a "Wowslider" you can make beautiful picture and video sliders, as you can see here above;

  7. MS-Frontpage has a Design mode and a Code mode. In Design mode it is a Wysiwyg editor that looks very similar to MS Word, while in Code mode you can code anything you like, make custom changes, just like in any web editor;

  8. Don't believe the coders that claim that the coding is not clean. That is total BS, because website visitors don't read code, they read your web page. In fact, the coding of MS-Frontpage in principle is very straight-forward and shorter than on-line programs like Worldpress and therefore it loads much faster than any other online or off-line program;

  9. In the Design mode, one can use a great variety of language modules for auto-correction;

  10. MS-Frontpage gives a variety of windows that show clearly where files are, broken links, the structure of the web;

  11. If you want just a simple website with a few pages, Frontpage is not for you. But if you want a website with many pages, you should seriously consider FP. I have 2000+ informative webpages and I could never maintain those all in other programs, as it takes too long to deal with them all;

  12. In Frontpage there is a facility to make find a code and make a change in the coding in all pages, which is great to do consistent editing in all pages;

  13. It works perfectly fine on all computer mobile/cell phone  browsers with properly coded javascript and style sheets;

  14. It is great program for informative websites, with many pictures and lots of structured text. However, if you want a complicated website with a database or the sales of a great variety and frequently changing products, MS Frontpage probably is not for you.

One of the best analysis on the internet about Frontpage are by a young woman who calls herself the InvisibleUp: https://invisibleup.com/articles/33/ While that article makes a great analysis about the history of MS Frontpage, it does not tell you how you can still use it. That is why I created this page with some suggestions on how to use it and where you can still acquire it.



Here you can get a functioning version of Microsoft Frontpage 2003, that Microsoft has given out as a public domain software, but they are hard to find nowadays. You can download this copy while we hope you that as a token of your appreciation, you link to our website: https://www.parks-and-tribes.com/ms-frontpage/ms-frontpage-2003-windows-10-11-12-perfect-guide-and-download.html.  You can read the access code in the image below:

MS-Frontpage on line Manual

This the only online MS Frontpage PDF manual I could find but it is not really great/

As a book I bought several books on line from Ebay, but only one is worth buying "MS Frontpage Inside out". For under $5 it even comes with a legal CD with Frontpage.


MS Frontpage Inside out on Ebay

This book is outstanding! If you use MS Frontpage, this is a must to have. This is the email of the author: buyensj@interlacken.com. I use it daily.

WINDOWS 10, 11 and 12

MS Frontpage works fine on all Windows versions. I know, Windows 12 is not out yet, but once it comes out sometime summer 2024?, there is no doubt it will allow us to run older software just fine, including MS Frontpage 2003.



All you have to do is is unmark "shared borders" in "Tools>Page Options", or instruct the browsers likewise directly in the <head>:

<meta name="Microsoft Border" content="none">


Starting out with preparing the head:

You should start a page in coding prior to the head:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

Then, initiate the <head>

Start out with the Meta tag Title:

It no longer makes sense to include Meta tags for keywords and descriptions, as Google totally ignores them (I tried in vain 2000+ pages), but of course it does not hurt including them.

What is important are the following code:

<link rel="canonical" href="https://www.parks-and-tribes.com/ms-frontpage/ms-frontpage-2003-windows-10-11-12-perfect-guide-and-download.html" />, which tells Google which page format to use (https://www.myweb.com or https://.myweb.com


Also tell the browsers that your page is scalable for mobile phones:

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1" />

And make sure that all your tables and graphics are scalable.


When you develop a webpage in a language with accents, like French, Spanish, Dutch and German, you should tell MSFrontpage and a browser that.

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

If you don't MSFrontpage has a mind of its own and changes all your accents to unreadable letters. I learned the hard way, having had to correct thousands of letters on hundreds of pages.

You can tell Google in which language the page is written, although that no longer is necessary. Google understands most languages now. But I wrote most of my pages long before Google was that smart, so all my pages have the coding like:

<meta http-equiv="content-language" content="en">


Let Google and Bing know your analytics coding, each with its own specific head code.

For Google:

(i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
ga('create', 'UA-"your-analytics-code"', 'auto');
ga('send', 'pageview');


For Bing:

<meta name="msvalidate.01" content="your-bing-code" />


For general Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) you need to include that in your <head> as well. Be aware that with multiple .css codes, the last one overrules the previous one.

<LINK REL="StyleSheet" HREF="https://www.parks-and-tribes.com/0borders/menu.css">
<LINK REL="StyleSheet" HREF="https://www.parks-and-tribes.com/0borders/style4.css">

You can code for different fonts that are recognized by Chrome and most other browsers:

<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Comic+Neue:wght@400;700&display=swap" rel="stylesheet">

The fonts can be chosen from the Google fonts at the indicated domain above.


If you use social media messages to promote your webpage, you can instruct them to show your title, content and a picture. I have the coding on most of my webpages, but I gave up on posting them on social media, as I saw no impact at all on page visitation. But here is what it looks like:


<meta property="og:title" content="RAINFOREST CO2 EMISSIONS OFFSET" />
<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary_large_image" />
<meta property="fb:app_id" content="https://www.facebook.com/DrDaanVreugdenhil">
<meta property="og:image" content="https://www.parks-and-tribes.com/amazon-rainforest/amazon-forest-plants/giant-fig-tree_small.jpg" />
<meta property="og:url" content="https://www.parks-and-tribes.com/co2-emission-offset.htm" />
<meta property="og:description" content="YOUR AMAZON TRIP CO2 EMISSIONS OFFSET: Your visit helps protect the hundreds of thousands ha of rainforest thus automatically offsetting your CO2 emission!" />
<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary_large_image" />
<meta name="twitter:title" content="AMAZON RAINFOREST CO2 EMISSION OFFSET" />
<meta name="twitter:description" content="YOUR AMAZON TRIP CO2 EMISSIONS OFFSET: Your visit helps protect the hundreds of thousands ha of rainforest thus automatically offsetting your CO2 emission!" />
<meta name="twitter:image" content="https://www.parks-and-tribes.com/amazon-rainforest/amazon-forest-plants/giant-fig-tree_small.jpg" />
<meta name="me" content="https://plus.google.com/u/0/100923072308835041222" />
<meta name="author" content="https://www.facebook.com/DrDaanVreugdenhil" />
<meta name="author" content="https://www.instagram.com/parksmandaan/" />
<meta name="author" content="https://www.linkedin.com/in/drdaanvreugdenhil/" />
<meta name="author" content="https://www.pinterest.com/parkstours/" />
<meta name="author" content="https://www.pinterest.com/cuyabeno/" />
<meta name="author" content="https://twitter.com/CUYABENOLODGE" />
<meta name="author" content="https://twitter.com/WorldParkTours" />
<meta name="copyright" content="Dr Daan Vreugdenhil" />


Of course you should use a Favicon with the following code:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" />


All right, now that you have instructed Google, Bing and the browsers how to deal with your page, you can close the head:


and open the "body" coding with


MS Frontpage does that by itself of course.

I like my pages to include a chat for which I use "Tawk.to", which I place right at the beginning of the body:

<script type="text/javascript">
var Tawk_API=Tawk_API||{}, Tawk_LoadStart=new Date();
var s1=document.createElement("script"),s0=document.getElementsByTagName("script")[0];
<!--End of Tawk.to Script-->


The program provides 2 views that demonstrate the directory structure in which each web page is located, including where one can find all the images. The other view provides the internal linking structure:





Directory structure

Website internal linking structure.


Another important view shows the analytical options that Frontpage provides:

Analytical options.

Analytical options include link verification, style sheet linking, errors, etc.



Here are some suggestions you can use for your website.


When designing a webpage, one starts out in the "Design View" and then later one can refine coding as needed in the "Code View".

WYSIWYG Design view.

Page coding.


By marking pictures in percentage of 50% they can be next to each other and being scalable for cell phones.

WYSIWYG Design view.

Page coding.

You can copy the above table for using to write text under 2 pictures next to each other.


I use a simple yet well-functioning menu which you can download from https://www.parks-and-tribes.com/0borders/menu-en.html

A simple yet well functioning table.

You need to combine it with https://www.parks-and-tribes.com/0borders/menu.css and the javacode: <script language="javascript" src="https://www.parks-and-tribes.com/0borders/menu-css.js"></script>

Make sure you place the menu.css above the style4.css to avoid that the menu style takes over the general page style.



A sample of a well functioning style sheet:

You can use this style sheet and adjust it for your design: https://www.parks-and-tribes.com/0borders/style4.css

You can use Google fonts by inserting the following example into your webpage header: <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Comic+Neue:wght@400;700&display=swap" rel="stylesheet">

Replace the font selection by the font of your choice.


I use the wowslider for a slider on my web pages: https://wowslider.com/
