If your have created your site from a STP file, you have no choice but to
edit the site to your liking and then save it as a template for reuse. The
only tool to do this is FrontPage, but remember, this will leave the page
unghosted.

does that mean that i can edit the STP files directly using front
page and please what is the meaning of unghosted

No, you cannot edit the stp file directly, at least that I'm aware of but I
don't use FrontPage either so someone correct me if I'm wrong :)

You can edit the site created from the stp file and then save it as another
stp file (you end up with 2 site template files), kind of a round abourt
way to do it but it's the only way that I know of.

Unghosting means you have "disconnected" the site from the original site
definition. So, any changes you make to the site definition files (in the
/60 hive) will not be reflected on any site that is "unghosted". Opening a
site in FrontPage and saving it, regardless if any changes have actually
been made, will set this flag in the database.
