EDIT PAGES: | Software choices | Notepad Editing
Change the text on all pages with your website text. 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 the footer and menu.
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. Page titles are very important so your site will get a good listing at Google, MSN and other search engines.
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 folder called picts on your server and put the pictures into that folder or just upload the entire picts folder.
USING A GRAPHIC LOGO:
To replace the Flash logo with a graphic logo: Delete or rename the "header.js". Rename the "graphic_logo_header.js" to "header.js". In the picts folder you will find a graphic called "logo.jpg". Edit this graphic with your logo image. The "logo.jpg" is now 600 pixels wide by 50 pixels high. You can make this image any size you would like. You will find some options inside the "header.js" for colors and expanding the logo area.
OPTIONS INSIDE THE MENU:
At the top of the "menu.js" there are some options you can turn on and off. One option is to show the image under the menu and there also is an option to show a text box under the menu. If you turn on the text you will edit this text near the bottom of the menu.js.
CHANGING LINKS / ADDING TO THE MENU: | Click for more details
You can change the names of the links like "about" or "links" to other names by editing the "menu.js" file in Notepad or any plain text editor. You will also find some links you can edit in the "footer.js".
When editing menu names do not change the name with the ".htm" after it. Whatever you edit in any menu .js file will update every page on the website. Keep menu names short if possible. Add more pages by copying one link in the "menu.js" and pasting it right below the next. Be sure to back up your files before editing them.
ADDING PAGES: | Click for more details

You can replace each HTML page picture with your own .jpg image. These pictures are now 750 x 125 pixels.

So all your pages will maintain a standard height there is a "pageheight" variable inside the menu.js that you can edit.
