    As I explained in 'http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?p=135838' I would love to see some support for Frontpage extensions. There are to much users around the globe that we can't ignore the support for that! :)

    Frontpage extensions are not really in use anymore. Microsoft has switched to their .net platform.

    Beside that, ISPConfig supports already frontpage extensions, but I would never install frontapge extensions on my server, its a great mess. You will e.g. get problems with FTP and file permissions, e.g. FTP and Frontpage can not be used together on the same website.

    Here is a simple but effective editor I wrote supports all scripting languages and text will do the job well

    Code:
    
    <?
    
    	$go = $_POST['go'];  //the path to the file posted
    	$label = $_POST['label']; //the file to edit
    
    	echo "Editing: $label";  //show the filename being edited
    
    	if(isset($_POST['submit'])) {
    		$orig_contents = $_POST['editor'];  //the data in th textbox that was edited
    
    		/* check'n scan for malicious code structures 
                       a simple way of allowing any/all scripting languages
    		   $orig_contents = str_replace($scanwords,"ERROR",$orig_contents); */
    		$result = file_put_contents($go,$orig_contents);  //dumps data to file replacing previous
    	} else {
    		
    		/* runs if submit is not activated puts file to edit ($go) 
                       into variable $orig_contents */
    
    		   $orig_contents = file_get_contents($go);  	
    	}
    ?>
    	<form action="editor.php" method="post">
    	<input type="hidden" name="go" value="<? echo $go; ?>">
    	<input type="hidden" name="label" value="<? echo $label; ?>">
    	<textarea name="editor" cols="80" rows="35"><? echo $orig_contents; ?></textarea>
    	<p>
    	<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Save" class="submit">
    	</p>
    	</form>
    
    
    You will possibly also need to temporarily use php chmod command to alter permissions and also think about the check'n scan. When I get some time I will try to hack some code into ISPConfig to get this working. AFAIK it will only need a link that populates the $go variable with the full path including filename to work with every iteration of loop that displays the files in Web-FTP
