This product ships as a zipped web. Save the
downloaded zip file to your hard drive, then unzip it to
your "My Webs" directory (or wherever you like to keep
your webs). A folder with the template name will be
created, and your new web will be created inside.
Afterward, simply open FrontPage or Expression Web
Designer, browse to the folder and open your web!
Can I easily change the colors on this template?
- Moderately easily - the curved menu bar and footer bar are graphics,
so you must use a graphics editing program to change the colors
(we have included the layered .psd files in the images/design_elements
folder for your convenience). All template colors and fonts
are controlled by an external style sheet, twcxxx.css, located in
the root directory of the web; the menu colors are controlled by
an external style sheet, ddm_style.css, located in the root directory
of the web.
Can I change the images in the flash movies?
- Yes. The movie is dynamic, meaning the text and images
are modified without requiring a flash editing program. To
replace the images, simply size and name your images the same as
ours, then save them to the images/ directory of the web, overwriting
the originals, as follows:
Four non-progressive .jpg images, named image1.jpg, image2.jpg,
image3.jpg, image4.jpg, sized 760 pixels wide by 200 pixels high.
How do I change the words in the flash movies?
Open the file data.txt, which contains:
&s1=Dedicated - We love what we do&
&s2=Experienced and Qualified&
&s3=High-level Customer Support&
You will leave our field id's (such as cname, s1, etc.), all = signs,
and all & characters in place. Replace ONLY the text after
= in each instance and before & characters. These field id's
are as follows:
cname: The company/site name
s1: The first phrase in the movie
s2: The second phrase in the movie
s3: The third and final phrase in the movie
