Site Map

If you don't want to rename your pages from .htm(l) to .asp here is a trick you may want to use.

IIS Allows you to change the way a page is read. you can instruct the IIS webserver to treat a html page just like it is an ASP page, but to do this you need to have access to the IIS control panel.

Right Click on the website you wish to administer. and select properties.

Click on the Home Directory Tab and then the Configuration Button.

Now simply add the ASP code to your index page. i.e. default.html or index.htm etc...

Point your browser to your web page. you should find it works a treat.
