FrontPage Add-ins Worth Getting
Sat, Feb 5 2005 20:15

Are you looking for components that can make your web sites more attractive, more engaging, and easier to navigate? If so you might want to take a look at J-Bots or some of the other FrontPage add-ins from WebsUnlimited They're fast and easy to use, and require no programming skills. Simply fill in dialog boxes, click the Generate button, and JavaScript code will automatically create the function you desire.

J-Bots components make FrontPage web sites more customized by adding Javascript-enabled features—but you don’t have to write code or cut and paste. Simply fill in dialog boxes, click Generate, and the Javascript is created for you. With the components in this trial, add features like Drop Down Jump Menu and Mouseover Image, add interest with Global Clock or Text Color Fade, greet your visitors by name with Cookie components, and much more.  I've been using J-Bots and Meta Tag Maker (also from WebsUnlimited) for years now and they've always made it easier to get things done without the hassle of having to hand code scripts yourself.

In addition to J-Bots, Jimco also has a wide variety of useful add-ins for FrontPage that can help make your life easier or simply enhance or include features that the developers forgot.
