Setting up your website template:

Step 1:
EDIT FLASH ANIMATION: | Click for more details
Open the "flash.txt" file with Notepad or any text editor, and edit "Your Website Title" with your website name. Be sure not to delete the "logo=". This will update the Flash logo on all pages. If you wish to use a graphic logo, there are instructions later in this document.

THE FLASH IMAGE CHANGER: | Click for more details
Edit the flash.txt and change the eight "&flash_phrase?=" lines with your 8 phrases. Or you can leave these lines blank to have no text with the image changer. This changer is showing 8 .jpg images. You will find these images in the "flash" folder. You can replace "image1.jpg" through "image8.jpg" with any standard .jpg images and the flash will update. Make your images 175 x 116 pixels in size.

Step 2:
EDIT COPYRIGHT: | Click for more details
Open the "copyright.js" file in Notepad or any text editor, edit the "Your Company" text with your website or company name. This will update the footer info on all pages. Edit all ".js" files with a text editor.

Open the "phone.js" file with Notepad or any text editor, and change the "Your Website Name", address, phone and fax number and e-mail address (Edit the e-mail in 2 places). This will update contact info on the contact page.

Step 4:
EDIT THE CONTACT FORM:

Click for current info on setting up the template forms.

Click for info on adding more fields to the forms.

Click for changing form sizes or colors.

If you want to use only e-mail on the contact page you can remove the contact form from the "contact.htm" between the comment tags.

Step 5:
REPLACE THE GALLERY PICTURES: | Click for more details
The best way to setup the pictures in the gallery is not to actually edit the HTML pages and change the pictures on each individual page. The fastest way is to simply replace the .jpg pictures in the "gallery" folder with your own by overwriting the files that are in there now and using the same generic names.

In the "gallery" folder, replace the 27 "Fgallery" pictures with full size photos. Replace the 27 "gallery" pictures with your thumbnails. The thumbnails are now 130 x 87 pixels and the full sized images are 500 x 333, but you can make them any size that you prefer.

Edit the "image-viewer.htm" to replace, or remove, the text included with the image close-up views.

IMAGE VIEWER OPTIONS: | Click for more details
You can change some options for the gallery image viewer page (image-viewer.htm) by editing the pop-closeup.js in Notepad. Options include new browser window, or popup for the viewer.

Step 6:
EDIT PAGES: | Software choices | Notepad Editing
Edit the text on all pages with your website information. You can use EW, Frontpage, Dreamweaver, GoLive, any wysiwyg HTML editor or a text editor like Notepad. Take care not to delete any of the HTML tags that surround the text.

Step 7:
EDIT TITLES, DESCRIPTIONS AND KEYWORDS: | Click for more details
Open each of the HTML pages and change the titles (at the very top of the page) and also the description and the keywords with your product or service info. You can edit one page and copy and paste to the other pages. Be careful to only change what's inside the "" so you don't disturb the html code. Page titles are important so your site will get a good listing at Google or MSN and other search engines. Click for optimization help.

Step 8:
UPLOAD: | Click for more details
Upload the pages on to your hosting company's server using ftp software or Windows Explorer or your control panel. Be sure to upload the "picts" and "flash" and "gallery" folders and all files in these folders.



Options:

USING A GRAPHIC LOGO:
You can replace the Flash logo with a graphic logo. To do this, delete or rename the "header.js", then rename the "graphic_logo-header.js" to "header.js". In the picts folder you will find a graphic called "logo.jpg". Edit this graphic with your logo. It's best to keep the graphic the same size that it is now.

paypal.htm PAYPAL PAYMENT PAGE:
This template includes a Paypal payment page called "paypal.htm". Edit the "paypal@your-web-domain.com" in this page with your Paypal e-mail and you can use this page to accept custom payments by sending clients a link to this page and having them fill in any amount on the payment page.

Whatever you change in any of the menus will update every page on the website. You can add more links to pages by copying a button in one of the menu files and pasting it right below itself. Be sure to back up your files before you edit them. Click for more menu details.

OTHER MENUS:
The menu used in the "image-viewer.htm" and "slideshow.htm" is named "menu_viewer.js". You can change and remove links in this menu file as well.

The menu used in the gallery pages is named "menu_gallery.js" and can also be edited to rename, remove or add gallery pages.

MENU COLORS: | Click for more details
You will find images in the "picts" folder for the sidebar and menu colors. Other menu code for line colors and font sizes can be found at the bottom of the corporatestyle.css.

PICTURES: | Click for more details
You can replace the page pictures with your own. The pictures are now 575 x 100 pixels (the homepage image is 575 x 300) but you can use any size picture you want and edit the HTML pages with your new sizes. Each page has it's own picture which is named according to the page it's on. You will find all pictures in the "picts" folder.

ADDING PAGES: | Click for more details | Add a Gallery
You can add pages to your website by copying and pasting any one of the pages and renaming it to whatever you need.

There are notes in the "menu.js" to help you add a button.

PAGE HEIGHTS:
So all your pages will maintain a standard height a "pageheight" class is included in the "corporatestyle.css". Edit this height to any height you need.

SITE MAP PAGE:
The "site_map.htm" is linked from the "index.html" with one of the small images. It is best not to remove this link so search engines can find your site map and properly list all your pages when users search at major search engines.
