Make sure you have one index.html file on your Webster. This is the file (or Webster) that visitors will see when they pull up your website address.
Please contact the helpdesk to have the permissions on your J drive fixed.
Students are responsible for the content on their web pages. While a student page certainly should be given the right of free speech, it should also show consideration for others in the community. State law prohibits the use of state-funded equipment in schools for economic gain of the students, faculty or staff. Please read the official rules:

No. There are is no FrontPage support on either of the student web servers. You can, however, create your pages using FrontPage, save them locally on your machine and then transfer the files to the server using VPN.
You can process forms using the Common Gateway Interface, CGI. In order for your script to work, the script file needs to be saved in the cgi-bin directory.
