2)  Next, click on “Frames Pages” on the window which pop-ups and click on Banner and Contests underneath this item.

3) After selecting Banner & Contents a page should open on Microsoft FrontPage, and there should be three separate smaller windows, which should say “New Page” and “Set Initial Page”. Click on New Page for all of them.  Now you will have blank spots to fill in whatever information which you would like on you website.

4) To split, delete, save, view or open the frame in a new window go to the top task bar of FrontPage and click on Frames.  A menu will drop down and you can edit any of these properties.
