Setting up your website template:

Step 1:
EDIT FLASH ANIMATION: | Click for more details
Open the "flash.txt" file with Notepad and change "Yourwebsitetitle.com" with your name or company name. Be sure not to delete the "logo=". Also change the "&slogan=An optional slogan or phrase can go in this area..." with your slogan. Be sure not to delete the "&slogan=". This will update the Flash logo on all pages. If you wish to use a graphic logo, there are instructions later in this document.

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

Step 3:
EDIT CONTACT INFO: | Click for more details
Open the "contact.js" in Notepad or any text editor file and change the company name, address, phone and fax number, and e-mail address. This will change 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:
EDIT PRODUCT PAGES:
If you are using the Paypal order forms, see the Paypal section below for setup info. If you do not want to use the order forms you can move the "products.htm" into the template "extras" folder and rename the "NO-FORMS-products.htm" to "products.htm".

Step 6:
EDIT PAGES: | Software choices | Notepad Editing
Change the text on all pages to match your information. You can use 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 pages and change the titles (at the very top of the page) and also the description and the keywords to match your product or service. 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.

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" folder and all files in this folder.



Options:

USING A GRAPHIC LOGO:
You can replace the text logo with a graphic one. 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", open this graphic and edit it with your logo. The size should remain 100 pixels high if possible. It is recommended that you do not exceed 150 pixels in height or 600 pixels in width with your logo.

FONTS: | Click for more details
You can change your font colors and sizes by editing the "style.css" with a text editor. You can find other font colors by clicking here. You can also change the font sizes in the "style.css" file. Change the "TABLE" px size to change the font colors or sizes on all pages. Change the "title" px size to change all the title sizes.

MENU LINKS: | Click for more details
You can change the names of the links like "About Us" or "What's New" to other page names by editing the "menu.js". Only change the one instance of the name and not the name with the ".htm" after it unless you have also renamed the .htm page. Whatever you change in the menu.js will change every page on the website. Keep the names short so they don't go outside the menu. You can even add more pages but copying one link in the menu.js and pasting it right below the next. Be sure to back up your file before you edit them.

NOTE: If you use a ' in a .js file add a slash before it like this \'.

PICTURES: | Click for more details
You can replace the pictures with your own. The template pictures are now 125 pixels wide (100 pixels wide on the products page) but you can use any size picture you want if you edit the height and width numbers on the HTML pages. It's best not to go wider than 125 pixels if you can. Each page has it's own pictures which are named according to the page they are on. You will find all pictures in the "picts" folder.

ADDING PAGES: | Click for more details
You can add pages to your website by copying and pasting any one of the pages and renaming it to whatever you need. You can then add links from the other pages or even add the page to the menu by opening the menu.js and copying and pasting one of the links below another. Be sure to back up your files before you edit them.
