General Newbie Questions

Post by Aggie » Sun Apr 23, 2006 8:24 pm

Hi, I have a few pre-sales questions. I have several folders on my website, of ASP pages, that need to have several (actually many!) urls changed.

1. Do I install AFR on my computer, and then open the site and go from there, or do I need to install it on the site's server?

2. It is a FrontPage 2000 site. Will AFR work with that?

3. All this "expressions" stuff seems sort of complicated to me. But it sounds like changing urls is pretty straightforward? Just changing a literal string for another?

4. Is there a way to select a group of specific pages to search, or does it have to be an entire folder?

Thanks for any help!

1. It depends on where your web pages are located. Usually developers
have web pages locally on local computer and then they publish
(upload) it on remote (site) server. So you should install AFR on your
local computer.

2. Yes, it will work with FrontPage 2000 site. Because any web site
consists of HTML or ASP/ASPX/PHP web pages.

3. Simple literal string replacement is quite straightforward. You
should use Replace or Batch replace tab for this purpose. You simply
put Search For, Replace With. Users on this forum usually ask about
complicated cases where using regular expressions is required.

4. In current version it works for entire folder. But we are preparing
new version of the software where you may select specific files.
Now if you need to change some files you may create a temp folder and
put the files there.
Kind regards,
