To change the message file type or popup size see "options" below. Click above to view the message setup and support page.

Step 6:
REPLACE THE GALLERY PICTURES: | Click for more details
The best way to setup the pictures on the gallery pages is not to actually edit the HTML pages and change the pictures on each individual page. The fastest way is to simply replace the .jpg pictures in the "gallery" folder with your own by overwriting the files that are there now and using the same generic names.

In the "gallery" folder, replace the "Fgallery" pictures with full size photos. Replace the "gallery" pictures with your thumbnails. The thumbnails are now 100 x 67 pixels. The full sized images are 500 x 500 pixels. You can make them any size that you prefer, however, it is recommended that you make the "Fgallery" images no more than 500 pixels wide for proper display on low resolution computers.

GALLERY PAGE OPTIONS: | Click for more details
The "pop-closeup.js" file is the script that allows images to change on the gallery pages. You can edit this file in Notepad. There are some options near the top of this file that you can change.

Step 7:
PHONE NUMBER UNDER THE MENU: | Click for more details
The phone number under the menu on the left of each page can be edited or switched of in the "menu.js" near the top of this file. Edit the font size and color in the "corporatestyle.css".

Step 8:
This template includes a Paypal payment page called "payments.htm". Edit the "" in this page with your Paypal e-mail and you can use this page to accept custom payments by sending clients a link to this page and having them fill in the amount on the payment page. You can edit the select options in this page as well. To remove the Paypal select options delete between the OPTIONS notes in the "payments.htm".

Step 9:
EDIT PAGES: | Software choices | Notepad Editing
Edit the text on all HTML 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 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 10:
Open each of the pages and change the titles (at the very top of the page) and also the description and the keywords with your product or service info. 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. Click for optimization help.

Step 11:
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", "gallery" and "message" folders and all files in these folders.


To replace the Flash logo with a graphic logo: Delete or rename the "header.js". Rename the "graphic_logo_header.js" to "header.js". Edit the "logo.jpg" in the picts folder with your logo graphic.

EDITING & ADDING TO THE MENUS: | Click for more details
You can change the names on the buttons like "about us" or "service" to other page names by editing the "menu.js" in Notepad. Only change the one instance of the name and not the name with the ".htm" after it. 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 add more pages by copying one button in the menu.js and pasting it right below the next. Be sure to back up your fileS before you edit them. See the notes in the menu .js files to add links.

The menu used in the gallery pages is named "menu_gallery.js". You can change and remove links in this menu file as well.

To change the file to use for the welcome message popups edit the "player-quicktime.js" and "player-winmedia.js" in the "message folder". For Windows Media it's best to use a .wmv or .wma file for video or mp3 for audio. For the Quicktime player it's best to use a .mov file for video and a .mp3 for audio.

PICTURES: | Click for more details
You can replace the pictures with your own. The pictures are now 750 x 80 pixels 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 pictures in the "picts" folder.

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 even add the page to the menu by opening the menu.js and copying and pasting one of the buttons below another. There are notes in the "menu.js" to help you add a button.
