Create new folders in your website

For each page that participates in a navigation link bar, FrontPage creates a set of button images that it stores in folders named _derived.

Search through your entire site. In every directory where there is a _derived folder, create your own folder named derived, without the underscore, and (in the FrontPage Folder List pane) copy all files from _derived to derived. You might wind up using only a few of these image files, but it's best to copy them all in case you want to use others later.

If FrontPage ever deletes the _derived folders or the files in them, you'll still have them in your derived folders.

If you can't find the _derived folders:

These are hidden folders. Sometimes they show in the Folder List pane, and sometimes they mysteriously don't. I haven't found a way to force them to appear.

If they're not showing for you, you can do the copy in Windows Explorer. If they don't show there, either, go to Windows Explorer > Tools > Folder Options > View, and set "Show hidden files and folders" = CHECKED.

You will see that each _derived folder has a subfolder called _vti_cnf. When you copy the files from _derived to derived, don't copy the subfolder or its contents.
