I was wondering if anyone knows if I can have a hyperlink not be underlined and if anyone knows how I can set an email link to automaticly add the subject title in FrontPage 2000. I have looked around but cant seen to be able to do it.

Or are either of these possible on XP pro because I have that but I just have 2000 installed now. Thanks if anyone knows.

Highlight the offending hyperlink, then while its highlighted right click the mouse and go down to font, in the effects section, uncheck underlined. it may be grayed out giving the impression that it cannot be unselected but you can just click on it then click apply.

If that dosnt work, because I only used 2000 for little bit you can just code it using the html tab.

Example:

Say you have the following on your page:
Click Here to goto somewhere. (It takes you to say test.com)


So to change here from underlined to not underlined change the following line of code in Frontpage

<a href="http://test.com">here</a>

to

<a href="http://test.com" style="text-decoration: none">here</a>

style="text-decoration: none"> is the key that takes away the underlining. :)

Let me know if that helps at all.

Well I will be sure to post it when it is done but its not really an important site except for gamers like myself :) I am redoing my current site for the computer game Red Faction in FrontPage and getting away from the free hosting.

On the same note, I have another question dealing with FrontPage and playing sounds. I have a picture that is a hyperlink and I want a sound to play when someone clicks on the hyperlinked picture. From playing around with it, I can either get it to just be a link to go to the page or it will be a link to the sound file and opens up a media window through IE. Does anyone know if I can do the two things together to be able to click on the hyperlinked picture, play the sound, and take me to the page or bookmark? Thanks in advance :knife: lol.

Ok, I don't think Frontpage offers that kind of customized formating in a windows selection type box, (Not Positive) but Iv never found it.

Basically the only way to make a picture,link,sound combo is to use Java Scripting (This will work only in IE5+ and Netscape 4+)

Goto the html tab of frontpage and insert the following lines inside the <body> of the page: My notes will be contained in []'s

<EMBED SRC="EXACT LOCATION AND NAME OF .WAV FILE" HIDDEN=TRUE AUTOSTART="false" MASTERSOUND NAME="soundfile" width="128" height="128">

[ The code above will set the embedded Java link and set the stage for the code below, with the embed command above you will be able to trigger that sound when ever you make a document.soundfile.play() java command. Note you must use .wav format and specify the exact location or your going to get a scripting error on your page. ]

<a onClick="javascript:document.soundfile.play()"
onMouseOver="javascript:document.soundfile.play()"
href="LINK TO LOCATION">

<img src = "IMAGE FILE .GIF/.JPG"
alt = "Message to people with no java"
></a>

[The code above will place the hyperlink destination and graphic to be associated with the soundfile you defined above. ]

Note if you want different images to trigger different sounds you have to add additional EMBED commands simply change the NAME="soundfile" to something else like NAME="soundfile2" but make sure to keep the first one as well.

then your trigger name will change as well, example: onMouseOver="javascript:document.soundfile.play()"
changes to
onMouseOver="javascript:document.soundfile2.play()"

I know this may be confusing iv tried to answer you question as simply as possible, i don't know how much experience you have with scripts and Java so thats why I was so specific, if you need additional help let me know.

w o w. Well thanks and yes it is confusing :) but thats because I have no scripting experience, just a 6 week class of FrontPage and I have been playing a lot with it at home. Im not to that point in the creation of the site yet but I was just thinking ahead. However when I get there I will give it a try and get back to you if I cant get it to work. Thanks again.

Hey [email protected], Its kinda late but you could just but in the straight HTML in the HTML, or in this case ?Javascript?, editor in FP2K. Thats what I do. Works great, I wont show up right in the editor but once you put it on the net' itll work great.
