Adding Pages

It's easy to create new pages and add them to your web. Open a sample page or another page you have created and select "save as" and rename it. The new page should have the layout intact. Change the content or graphics inside the new page.

Changing Graphics

Replace the template graphics with your own graphics created in a graphics editor such as Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro etc. We've made it easy to change the header graphic above by providing you with an image minus "CompanyName.com." This allows you to use the same image as used above but with your own "Site" info or company name.

Changing Tab Names

Blank tab graphics are included for sites needing 3-7 top level categories. These are found in the Images folder. Import the needed blank tab graphics into your graphics program (Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, Image Composer, etc.). If the program allows, place them in layers, making an additional layer for the words. Display each layer of the tab graphics, one at a time, plus the word layer, save the newly modified tabs as .gifs, and export into the template.

OR contact the designer, sandy@thetemplatestore.com, for the Fireworks editable .png files, available at no extra charge. If you do not have Fireworks a free trial copy is available from Macromedia. With the .png files the color and size of the tabs can be easily changed. 

Tip: Give the new .gifs the same file names as the original tabs in the template, letting them override the original graphics in the images folder. This way they will automatically fall into place in the template. After the new graphics are in the images folder, rename the files to make more sense for your site.

The font used on the tabs was Arial, commonly found on Widows operating systems. There is room on each tab for two rows of words.

We are also available to modify the tab and company name graphics for a nominal fee. Please contact us for details.

Modifying the Swish Movie

Swish 1.51 or higher is required for modification of the optional header movie seen on the Home page. You can find it here.

Include Files

Note that some elements elements that occur on all pages of this site exist as include pages. You can find these include pages in the "includes" folder of this web. 

The include pages are inserted into the main pages in order to allow you to make global changes to your site or change many pages at the same time. To do this you must right click on the area you would like to edit. If it is indeed an include page you will see something like this in the pop up menu:

Open file: c:\ location and name of include page

Or - you can open the include pages via folders view. Once the file is open - make the necessary changes and save them. All pages utilizing the include page should update upon saving.

Cascading Style Sheets

In folders view, double-click on organized.css. This will open the CSS page. The code governing the links in the header and in the body will be found there.

a.top:link controls the navigation bar at the top of the page under the tabs. 
a.left:link
controls the navigation bar in the left column. 
a:link controls the body links.

To change the color of the links - simply make changes to the html color coding such as #ffffff or #336699. Find the HTML color code for the color of your choice and insert the number in place of the existing one.

If you wish to remove the Cascading Style Sheet properties...simply remove the code calling the sheet in the head section of the include pages as well as any code associated with it in the body of the include pages such as <LINK REL=STYLESHEET TYPE="text/css" HREF="organized.css"> </head> and class="left"
