You can manage several databases with PAF 4.04, each with a different name and each in the same or a seperate folder. There are instructions in the help files on how to do this, I looked under "New" then found 'creating new database'.

You can also create as many web pages as you want, but they should all be in a folder of their own (they are generated in a folder named by what you put in the "Description" field) as the default first file is "index.htm" and the rest of the files default to something like "pafX##.htm". That way the second page generated would overwrite most of the files in the first page if they were in the same folder. Uploading to the same folder will overwrite most of the first page uploaded too.

There are options at the bottom of the "Create Web Page" dialogue window that you can use to change the file names (Advanced Options), and add links as headers and footers to each page (Advanced HTML).

Is this now as clear as mud?

P.S. It is my personal opinion that PAF 4.04 is a much better program than FTM. (Makes a nicer web page too)
