I have used FrontPage for many years.

Currently I run FrontPage under Windows 7 under Parallels.

Can anyone recommend a WYSIWYG editor that will convert my FP-developed sites into HTML5 and runs under iOS 10.6.8?

All with no coding.

Thank you.

Did you use Search? Try this:-


Frontpage

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Thank you, HarryB.

I will search some more.

Searches turned up older info on things such as iWeb and Dreamweaver.

I tried DW and found it too complex for my needs.

FrontPage does all I need, but it would be great to be totally done with Windows.

What's wrong with using iWeb? Which version of OS X are you using?

Thanks.

My understanding is that Apple has dropped iWeb.

It is being replaced by the EasyWeb product that was written by two Apple engineers.

My problem with this product is that I have hundreds of pages on many sites that use FrontPage's form processing to report survey results via email to our staff.

It is this form function and reporting that stops me each time I search for a FP replacement.

Otherwise, I believe that I could run my 72 sites into another product that runs under native Apple and be rid of Microsoft & FP.

This is not a field that I follow much but I wonder if RapidWeaver in conjunction with a plugin would do the job for you. Here one that I found though I am sure there are others. FormLoom

I have not seen much of an answer for how much of Front Row's code RapidWeaver can import without recoding.

Thank you, Sly.

I will check out using a plug in with RapidWeaver. It seems to have possibilities.

Hope that works out for you. As I say I have not used RapidWeaver but it seems to be well liked.

The plug is what I could use to translate the forms.

However, RapidWeaver does not read and convert sites written by other programs.

Since RapidWeaver will not translate my sites, I need another program that will perform that conversion.

Thanks for the idea.

Let me save you a lot of time and effort.

FrontPage is a MS proprietary thing. There is NOTHING on this planet that is going to convert your FP sites into some other program so you can continue using them.

You will have to rebuild sites, and this is actually a VERY GOOD THING as the code FP generates is, on top of being inefficient, inaccurate for web-standard browsers and generally horrible, hopelessly out-of-date.

You are far better of re-creating the sites in a more modern program, as this will produce better-quality code and make your site look way better. You don't necessarily have to learn much HTML coding, but you will have to learn a new program. Take a look at Sandvox, at Rapidweaver, at Freeway. I know nothing about this EasyWeb thing you mentioned -- Apple's definitely not endorsing it as a replacement, but then again they're not suggesting anything as a replacement -- but look around, find the best tool that will work with you, and recreate your sites. Or stick with FP until it dies, which I suspect it will in due course.

^ Thank you , Chas_M.

Your words make perfect sense and present very realistic apparent fact.

I will follow your suggestion as to how to transition to native Mac.

Thank you. You have done as you said: Saved me time & trouble.

Hello,

This old thread of mine may yield some good results for a few more people as well as me.

So please allow me to ask the quoted-above question again.

I would really like to be able to find a program that reads in my FP pages' code and outputs a converted web site ready for use of this new program.

Does anyone have an idea of what program that might be?

Thank you.

I haven't heard of such a program but, even if there is one, it might be better to re-design it. The last version of it was released in 2003 by the company that made the browser that itself made up 90%+ of the market. Honestly, and this probably the answer you wanted, you're better off starting from scratch.

Thank you for your wise perspective. I agree with your suggestion to re-do.

I am considering the Mozilla KompoZer program. Do you have any thoughts about that?

I would appreciate your opinion.

I'm not much help here as I do all web coding by hand. How much knowledge do you have of web development? What are you looking to make?
