Setting up your website template:

Step 1:
EDIT FLASH ANIMATION: | Click for more details
Open the "flash.txt" file with Notepad or a text editor and edit "Your Website Title" with your name or company name. Be sure not to delete the "logo=". Edit the "&slogan= Optional slogan or phrase can go here..." with your slogan, or leave this line blank. Be sure not to delete the "&slogan=". Edit the eight "&textlines" with phrases for the homepage animation. This will update the Flash logo on all pages. If you wish to use a graphic logo, there are instructions later in this document.

INCLUDED MOBILE DETECT - HEADER DETECT: | Click for more details
The "header.js" and "header_home.js" include a browser detection script for non-Flash browsers and devices. An option for testing and to show either text, or an image in non-Flash browsers is included in the "header.js" and "header_home.js". Click above for details.

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" text with your webiste 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" 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" page. This is done this way 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:
EDIT TWITTER FACEBOOK LINKEDIN LINKS: | Social Links | .js variable editing
Open the "social_links.js" in a text editor and edit the 3 link variables with your link to Twitter Facebook and LinkedIn. The "social_links.js" includes "yes/no" variables to turn off any or all of the social links. Variable editing help.

Step 6:
EDIT RIGHT SIDEBAR: | More details
You will edit the "sidebar.htm" like any other HTML page. Editing the "sidebar.htm" will update all the pages at one time. If you need more height in the sidebar you can edit the "SB-frame" height style in the "coolstyle.css".

Step 7:
EDIT PAGES: | Software choices | Notepad Editing
Edit the text on all pages with your information. You can use Frontpage, Dreamweaver, 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 8:
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, Yahoo! 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" folder and all files in this folder.

To do this, delete or rename the "header.js" and the "header_home.js", then rename the "graphic_logo_header.js" to "header.js" and the "graphic_logo_header_home.js" to "header_home.js".
