Make Changes to the Shared Border File

Shared borders are stored in four files (Top.htm, Bottom.htm, Left.htm, and Right.htm) in the hidden _borders folder of your Web. To make changes directly in the shared border file, follow these steps:

2. On the Tools menu, click Web Settings.
3. On the Advanced tab, click to select the Show hidden files and folders check box. Click Apply. Click Yes to the following message:
The changes you made in the Advanced Settings tab will take effect after the Web is refreshed from the server.

Do you want to refresh the Web now?
4. Click OK to close the Web Settings dialog box.
5. Expand the _borders folder. To do this, click the plus-sign (+) to the left of the _borders folder.
6. Right-click the shared border file (Top.htm, Bottom.htm, Left.htm, and Right.htm) you want to make changes to and click Open on the shortcut menu.
7. Make the changes to the shared border you want.

NOTE: If you have not made changes to the shared border after inserting it, FrontPage placed a Comment component in the shared border file which shows the following text:
Comment: This border appears in all pages in your Web. Replace this comment with your own content.

Select the Comment text and then type or insert what you want to appear in the shared border.

8. On the File menu, click Save to save the changes you made to the shared border file.
9. On the File menu, click Close to close the shared border file.
