Setting up your website template:

Step 1:
EDIT FLASH ANIMATION: | Click for more details
Open the "flash.txt" file with Notepad and change "Your Website Title" with your name or company name. Be sure not to delete the "logo=". Also change the "&slogan= Your corporate slogan or phrase can go here..." with your slogan. Be sure not to delete the "&slogan=". Then you can edit the eight "&textlines" with whatever words you want to show up on your home page (the index.html). This will change 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" file in Notepad or any text editor and change the "Your Company" line with your site name. This will update the left footer info on all pages.

Step 3:
EDIT CONTACT INFO: | Click for more details
Open the "contact.js" file in Notepad or any text editor and change the company name, address, phone and fax number and e-mail address. This will update contact info on the "contact" page. This is done in a .js file so search engines won't see your e-mail and you'll get less spam.

Step 4:
EDIT THE CONTACT AND QUOTES 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.

Because of the complexity of setting up the quote form, there are notes in the "quotes.htm" to help you cut and paste to add new form fields. The form will work with most contact form scripts however you will need help files or a sample form from the script you intend to use. Most form elements work the same way from script to script, however the hidden values usually vary. You may want to consider editing the entire page in Notepad instead of a wysiwyg editor.

Step 5:
REPLACE THE GALLERY PICTURES: | Click for more details | Thumbnail Help
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 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 all "Fgallery?.jpg" pictures with full size photos. Replace all "gallery?.jpg" pictures with your thumbnails. The thumbnails are now 100 x 67 pixels and the Fgallery images are 500 x 333 but you can make them any size that you prefer. There is info on the other pictures in this template later in this document.

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
Change the text on all pages with your information. You can use a text editor like Notepad, Frontpage, Dreamweaver or any wysiwyg editor. Take care not to delete any of the HTML tags that surround the text. You will find notes inside each HTML page to to indicate areas to edit. NOTE: You will not see the footer and header in some software because they are .js include files so you can globally edit the footer and menu.

Step 8:
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 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 9:
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 "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" and the "header_index.js", then rename the "graphic_logo_header.js" to "header.js" and the "graphic_logo_header_index.js" to "header_index.js". In the picts folder you will find a graphic called "logo.jpg" and a graphic called "logo_index.jpg". Edit these two graphics with your logo. It's best to keep the graphics the same sizes that they are now unless you edit the height and width numbers in the new "header.js" and "header_index.js".

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

CHANGING LINKS / ADDING TO THE MENU: | Click for more details
You can change the names of the links like "about" or "services" to other page names by editing the "menu.js". 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 by copying one link in the menu.js and pasting it right below the next. Be sure to back up your files before you edit them. There are instructions in the menu .js files to add more links.

This template includes a total of 4 menus. All these files can be edited in Notepad and include some options.

menu.js (top links)
menu-lower.js (links under the 3 sidebar images)
menu-gallery.js (links at the bottom of all gallery pages)
menu_pictures.js (the 3 sidebar images)

Gallery navigation menu sample:

Open the "menu-gallery.js" file in Notepad and copy and paste to add more galleries to the navigation.

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 on the menu by editing the "menu.js".

PAGE HEIGHTS:
So all your pages will maintain a standard height a "pageheight" variable is included. Edit the "var pageheight" in the "menu_lower.js" in Notepad and you can globally increase the page heights for all subpages.

CHANGING THE GRAPHICS/PICTURES: | Click for more details
You can replace the page pictures with your own. The page pictures are now 400 x 225 pixels, the homepage image is 750 x 100, gallery images are 500 x 333, and page and gallery thumbnails are 100 x 67 but you can use any size picture you want and the pages will size them to fit automatically. Each page has it's own picture which is named according to the page it's on. You will find all images in the "picts" and "gallery" folders.

SITE MAP PAGE:
The "site_map.htm" is linked from the index.html. 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.
