Can I easily change the colors on this template?
- Yes, VERY easily as long as you know how to work with a style
sheet. All our colors and fonts are controlled by an external
style sheet, twcxxx.css, located in the root directory of the web.
Note that the colors for the vertical menu in the flash movie are
NOT controlled by css; you will need to make modifications
directly to the flash source files (included) with Flash MX if
you wish to make color changes in the movie.
How do I change the images in the flash movies?
- You will (of course) need image editing software to crop and
size your images to fit into the various frames of the movies.
All images for the flash movies are located in the movie_files/ directory
of the web. You will locate the file you wish to change, then
size your file the same and save with the same name into the same
directory, overwriting our originals:
3 non-progressive .jpg file named image1.jpg, image2.jpg, and
image3.jpg,sized 600px wide by 200px high.
How do I change the links and link names in the
Open the file data.txt file, which contains:
You will leave our field id's (such as url1, url2, etc.), all =
signs, and all & characters in place. Replace ONLY the text
after = in each instance and before &. These field id's are
b1, b2, ..., b6: The names that will appear
in the upper ink bar
url1, url2, ..., url6: The html pages each "button" will link
Can I remove from or add to the 6 existing flash button links?
- Not really. If you have more than 6 pages to link, we
recommend you structure your site properly so the additional pages
are linked in submenus. If you have less than 6 pages to link,
consider using a link for your email address such as:
or linking to an outside source, such as:
How do I change the Your Name in the logo header?
- We have included the layered photoshop file (images/design_elements/yourname.psd)
if you have a graphics program capable of modifying layered photoshop
files. You will need the font Palatino Linotype (not included
with the template), or you may substitute your own. After
changing, save back to the same directory as yourname.gif, overwriting
our original. As an alternative, you may open the file
include_top.htm, then either insert your own graphical logo or type
your information in within FrontPage and save.
How do I change the copyright information at the bottom of the
- You need to do that only on the page "include_bot.htm" - the
changes will be effective throughout all pages of your web.
Can I add more pages?
- Certainly! You can add as many as you wish! Just
use one of our blank page templates (see the "What's Included" page
of this template). Go to the Folder List (View, Folders) and
open the template or your choice. As soon as it is open, go
to File, Save AS... - then save it as the name you want your new
page to have. Now, go to the Navigation view (View, Navigation).
Is your Folder List open as well? If not, the go to View,
Folder LIST to open it. Next, locate the new filename in the
Folder List (it's probably at the bottom), left click over it and
while holding down the left mouse button, drag it over into the
Navigation Structure and drop it where you want it, so that it is
underneath either the Home page or another existing page.
Repeat every time you wish to add a new page!
Can I use your images for business cards/brochures/ads?
- No. We have paid the appropriate licensing fees for you
to use the imagery free of copyright infringement for a web site
only. If you wish to use the imagery for other purposes, you
will need to obtain your own license. Please refer to the
license agreement included with this template for additional details.
Why doesn't my form work?
- Your form has to be programmed according to your own server
to work. Please refer to our general template FAQs on our
web site for more information.
