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" to match your name or company name. Be sure not to delete the "logo=". Also change the text following "&slogan=" and the text following "&sub_page_slogan=". Be sure not to delete the "&slogan=" or the "&sub_page_slogan=". You can also leave those areas blank if you want. 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 Name or Company" line to match your information. This will change the 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 number and e-mail address. This will change contact info on the "contact" and "services" pages.

Step 4:
EDIT THE CONTACT FORM: | Click for more details
If you are setup with an AllWebCo hosting account. Go to your control panel at "http://your-domain.com/cgi-bin/plusmail" and install the free script "Formail" then edit the contact page and replace "your-domain.com" with your domain. There is a thank you page included.

If you are not set up with AllWebCo hosting or do not have "Formail" installed. You can either setup the contact form to use another contact script, install "Formail" on your server or you can remove the contact form from the pages between the comment tags.

If you wish to change the sizes of the form elements you can open the "coolstyle.css" in Notepad or any text editor and change the ".shadeform" ".textarea" and ".dropdown" width numbers.

Step 5:
REPLACE THE PAGE GRAPHICS: | Click for more details
Replace the "about.jpg", "clients.jpg", "services.jpg" etc.. with your own pictures. Open the "icon-popup.gif" and replace this with a small graphic of your own. This icon is for the gallery pop-ups. All page pictures can be found in the "picts" directory. Replace the 8 "home-pict?.jpg" icons in the "picts" directory with your own pictures also. These are the 8 pictures on the homepage.

Step 6:
REPLACE THE GALLERY GRAPHICS: | Click for more details | Thumbnail Help
Because this template includes a slideshow, the best way to setup the pictures in the gallery and the slide show at the same time 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" directory with your own by overwriting the files that are in there now and using the same generic names. Hosting is case sensitive so be sure to use the exact same name.

Replace the 108 "gallery" pictures in the "gallery" directory with full size photos. Replace the 108 "gallery" pictures with your thumbnails. The thumbnails are now 130 x 87 pixels but you can make them any size that you prefer. The gallery pages will show your thumbnails at whatever size you make them.


POP UP WINDOW OPTIONS: | Click for more details
This template includes 21 options for the pop-up windows. To change these options, open your "pop-closeup.js" in Notepad and put a "yes" or "no" (all lowercase) for the options you want to change. You can also change the height and width variables as well as turn on and off the scrollbars. See the notes in the "pop-closeup.js" for details


Step 7:
EDIT THE GALLERY POPUP TEXT:
This option can be turned off and on. See the above step for details. Click here for complete editing details Each picture has some text used in the javascript that will display in the pop-up. This is done this way so you don't have to have a page for each individual picture. You will only have to edit each gallery?.htm page. You can also turn this option off. See the pop up window options above.

Step 8:
EDIT PAGES: | Software choices | Notepad Editing
Change the text on all pages to match 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 page to help you navigate. NOTE: You will not see the footer and header in some software because they are .js include files so you can globally edit your e-mail and other info.

Step 9:
EDIT PAGE TITLES, DESCRIPTIONS AND KEYWORDS: | Click for more details
Open each of the pages and change the page 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. Keywords are very important so your site will get a good listing at google or msn and other search engines.

Step 10:
UPLOAD: | Click for more details
Upload the pages on to your hosting company's server using ftp software like CuteFTP or Coffee Cup (free) or your control panel. Be sure to make a directory called picts on your server and put the pictures into that directory.
