The Sun Cobalt RaQ4 Server supports the main features of
FrontPage Server Extensions, except for sub-webs.
What are sub-webs?
A sub-web is contained in a folder under your main website,
but has its own permissions and themes.
You would use sub-webs if different sections of your site
required different themes.
Another reason for a sub-web is to control who can author,
browse and administer different portions of your site. For
instance, if your site had a Products section and a Support
section, you might make each a sub-web and allow the Product
Manager to author and administer the Products sub-web, and the
Support Manager t author and administer the Support sub-web.
Why aren't sub-webs supported?
As my Greek professor used to say, "That's just the way
Is a work-around available?
We offer two optional features to
get around this limitation:
- Sub-domain Sub-web
If you want to access your sub-web in a directory under your
main web (www.site.com/products/) then we can manually
configure a sub-domain to point to a folder within your
site. This will allow your to publish to the sub-domain from
FrontPage and access it as a directory of the main site.
There is a $5.00 setup fee per sub-web setup this way.
- Child Sites
The alternative is to break your account up into a main site
and one or more sub-domains (www.site.com and
products.site.com). Your main site and sub-domain sites must
be at least 25 MB in size however. There is no extra charge
for setting this up.
