PageGate GetWeb Lists Setup Transcript for
Welcome to the tutorial on how to configure a
GUI List or List Web Page with the GetWeb Module
The first step is to run the PageGate Admin,
so go to your start menu in Windows, go to Programs,
find the PageGate program group, and run the PageGate
Before we begin, it should be noted that since
the GetWeb module uses a template based system,
any customizations or edits that you make MUST
be done to the template, not to the index or default
If you make a change to the index or default
page, the next time the GetWeb module republishes
the information based on the template, you'll
lose any edits that you've made.
Before we can actually configure a GUI List or
List webpage, we first have to configure a group
that will control this webpage.
So, right click on the Groups section, then left
click on Add.
You can name the group whatever you like but
it should be noted that whatever you name the
group will be the name that PageGate uses as the
web page directory name. So, for example, if we
name the group pglist, our eventual webpage name
will be www.whatever.com/pglist
After naming the group, left click in the group
field and you'll notice that it fills in for you.
Now that we have our group in the groups list,
left click on the + next to its name, then left
click on the Web Page subsection under the recipient.
In the Template File field, click on the Dropdown
arrow and select either the list or guilist.htm
You may notice these fields, Text 1 through 10
and Image 1 through 5. These correspond to various
text and image placement fields within the template
and you can fill these in as you please.
After specifying the template, left click on
The final step is to left click on the Members
sub-section of the webpaging group.
Anyone that is a member of this group will show
up on the website. Anyone that is not a member,
will not show up..
Also, any time you modify the member list of
a web paging group in any way, PageGate republishes
the index and default html pages based on the
Now, if you look in the web pages directory on
your web server, mine is c:\inetpub\wwwroot\,
you should see a new sub-directory that matches
the name of your web paging group.
If you go into that directory, you'll see that
PageGate has generated the index and default html
pages for the web server to host based on the

a GUI List or List Web Page with the GetWeb module.
