Our main image is 500 x 200 pixels. You can easily replace this image with one of your own, but you must keep the same dimensions as our original. The smaller images we have used throughout this template may also be replaced with those of your choice.
Style Sheets and Classes:
Each table cell within this template uses a CSS class to format the information contained within it. Our CSS file is "commented" to help you identify locate and identify specific items. You can also find which class was used by right-clicking in a table cell and selecting Cell Properties. In the window that appears, click on the Style Button. Under "Class" you will see the name of the name of the class we used. In FrontPage 2003, you can easily see which classes and/or IDs are applied to specific areas if you look at the "Quick Tag Selector" bar or the Style toolbar.
Large First Letter:
You can easily create a "drop-cap" effect by highlighting the first letter and then go to the drop-down style box and apply the "span.dropcap" to the single letter. The font type, size, and color can be modified in the CSS file. You can also apply this style in FP2003 by using the Style Toolbar (View > Toolbars > Style).
Rather than use shared borders or FrontPage web-bot navigation, we prefer "includes" for their flexibility. You will find the following items within the include folder:
Open the page, edit your text, then save the page. Your changes will be reflected on every page. As you edit your include pages, double-check to make sure that FrontPage has not added paragraph tags before and after your changes. If this happens, delete any <P> or </P> which can cause some minor display issues in Firefox.
R ead Me...
As far as we know, there are no limitations in how you choose to use our templates. You can add as many pages as necessary, remove our navigation and add your own, or use a scripting language. The only limits are your own knowledge of FrontPage, HTML, and CSS.
While we try to make our templates easy to use, if you have questions or need specific "how-to" information, please check the Help Center of our site. If you do not find your answers there, email us and we'll be happy to help.
"Your Business Name" image:
Our Your Business Name image is 400 x 100 pixels. We give you a layered Photoshop (PSD) file which you can edit. The logo/icon is one one layer, the site name is on another, and the slogan is on the last layer. You can delete layers, add your own, and make other modifications so that this image is unique to your site. Save your modified image as "logoimage.jpg" in the Images folder of your web. The new image will overwrite our sample image.
We have added a Shockwave/Flash animation at the top of the home page using the SwishMax program. The text can be easily changed by editing the external_text.txt file. Edit only the text shown in red in our example below.

Note: If you wish to change the imagery used in the movie, adjust the text size and/or color, or make other changes, the SwishMax program is required. We can supply you with the source file on request after your purchase.
Adding New Pages:
1. Copy an existing Page (recommended): This is useful if you have inserted a logo graphic and made other layout changes that you want to apply to all the new pages that you are creating. Open a page that has the layout the way you want it, then go to File/Save As. Save the page under a new name and save the page title as well. Then go to Navigation View and drag your new page into the navigation structure.
2. Create a new page template: Open layout1.htm and then click File/Save As. From the dropdown choose FrontPage Template (.tem). This will add a new page template to your available templates.
Changing Page Names:
You can change the file name (aboutus.htm) from within the folder view. You can change the page title (About Us) by right-clicking on an open page and selecting Page Properties from the menu. Change the name in the Title field and click OK.
Editing Your Pages:
To edit each page, simply delete our text and replace it with your own. Work carefully so that you do not drag or move any table or cell edges. If you accidentally move an element, click on the "Undo" icon and begin again. We recommend that you test your changes frequently by going to File > Preview in Browser.
Creating Email Links:
Creating an email link is easy. In fact, if you type out the email address, FrontPage will usually automatically turn it into a hyperlink.
If you wish to hyperlink some other word, phrase, or graphic, highlight the words, or image you want to link and right click on it then choose Hyperlink to bring up the hyperlink dialog box. Then either click on the "Email" button, or type in "mailto:email@..." into the URL box.
Please note that if you only type over an existing email address, FrontPage may not change the HTML coding automatically. You will need to right-click on the email link and select Hyperlink Properties from the menu. Confirm in the dialog box that the email link is correct or if it needs editing.
Extra Buttons and Icons:
We offer you a selection of shopping cart and information buttons.
Form "mailto: Email" address:
In order to receive the contact page form results, you must edit the form properties and change the email address to your own. To do this, right-click on the form and select Form Properties from the menu. In the Form Properties window, make sure that "Send to" is selected. Type your email in the space next to "email address". Now click on the Options button. In the window that appears, click on the Email Results tab. Make sure that your email address is showing under "Email address to receive results".
