Migrating from FrontPage to Dreamweaver - Macromedia Exchange Dreamweaver Extensions

We have a FrontPage web site that uses a lot of FrontPage includes and navigation view components. We need a tool to migrate it into Dreamweaver without loosing the shared includes. I read various archticles and Dreamweaver has equivalent Library or SSI. Does anyone know if there is an extension written up fo this? If not, does anyone know any resouces or books that will teach us how to write this....

    Default Migrating from FrontPage to Dreamweaver

    We have a FrontPage web site that uses a lot of FrontPage includes and
    navigation view components. We need a tool to migrate it into Dreamweaver
    without loosing the shared includes. I read various archticles and Dreamweaver
    has equivalent Library or SSI. Does anyone know if there is an extension
    written up fo this? If not, does anyone know any resouces or books that will
    teach us how to write this.

    I've never used FP, but I have redesigned sites that were originally built with
    it. While I don't know how FP handles includes, you're correct that DW uses
    library items & SSIs. AFAIK there's no painless, trouble-free way to go about
    migrating.

    You didn't mention what version of DW you're using, but a quick search for
    "frontpage migration" on the Adobe site turned up these:

    [url]http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=tn_14031:[/url] This covers
    migrating from FP > DW MX & MX 2004. Some extensions are available but, again,
    nothing like a 1-click-and-you're-all-done solution.

    [url]http://www.adobe.com/devnet/dreamweaver/articles/frontpage_to_dw8.html:[/url]
    Comparisons with plenty of explanations, including lots of screenshots (and
    some charts at the end of the article).

    As for a book on writing your own extensions, try searching Amazon for
    dreamweaver extensions. For web-based resources on writing extensions, Google
    searches would be an obvious starting point. That being said, I'm of the
    opinion that if someone hasn't already written an extension that can easily
    perform a FP > DW migration, it's probably because doing so isn't a viable
    option. Maybe others on the forum who will chime in with specific references.
