FrontPage 98 Tips

Creating Custom Themes

Take a look on the FrontPage 98 CD-ROM in the Sdk/Themes/Designer folder. You'll find the FrontPage 98 Theme Designer. To install it, run the tdsetup.exe program. The next time you run FrontPage, you can access the Theme Designer from the FrontPage Explorer by selecting Show Theme Designer from the Tools menu.

The Theme Designer lets you define settings for a number of different style elements, including:

Table Borders

Navigation Icons
Navigation Bar Buttons
Horizontal Lines

You can also select a font for your theme. And it's a good idea to specify a few alternates while you're at it.

Using the Theme Designer is simplicity itself. To change an element, just right-click it and select Properties from the pop-up menu. The dialog box that appears shows different options available for that element. For instance, to change the table border colors, right-click the table element and select Table Properties from the pop-up menu. In the resulting dialog box, select the colors you want from the drop-down list.
