How do I force FrontPage to publish all files?

When you choose "Publish Web" (or "Publish Site") in FrontPage, it normally shows an option allowing you to publish all the files. However, FrontPage sometimes doesn't publish all the files, even when you tell it to do so.

If this happens, you can use a trick to force it to publish all files.

Forcing all files to publish

First of all, select the files you wish to publish in your Folder List. To select all files:

  • Click on the first file in the list
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the list
  • Hold down the shift key and click on the last file in the list.

Then right-click on the files and choose Publish Selected Files from the pop-up menu.

That will make sure FrontPage starts to publish everything. You can then continue with the second step of FrontPage Publishing.
