This will change the Flash logo on all pages. If you wish to use a graphic logo, there are instructions later in this document.
Edit the "Welcome" text for the "var LogoText" in the "header.js" with your site name. To test this, make the "var showflash" a "no" and open the "index.html" in your web browser. This is the text that will show in non-Flash browsers. Change the "var showflash" back to "yes" when you are done.

REPLACE THE GALLERY PICTURES: | Click for more details
The best way to setup the pictures in the gallery is not to actually edit the HTML pages and change the pictures on each individual page. The fastest way is to simply replace the pictures in the "gallery" folder with your own by overwriting the files that are in there now and using the same generic names.
In the "gallery" folder, replace the 12 "Fgallery" pictures with full size photos. Replace the 12 "gallery" pictures with your thumbnails. The full size images are now 500 x 333 pixels and the thumbnails are 130 x 87 pixels but you can make them any size that you prefer.
IMAGE VIEWER OPTIONS: | Click for more details
You can change some options for the gallery image viewer page (image-viewer.htm) by editing the pop-closeup.js in Notepad. Options include new browser window, or popup for the viewer.
EDIT SIDEBAR: | Click for more details
Open the "sidebar.js" file in Notepad or any text editor, and edit the text and links with your own text. You will also find some options you can change at the top of this file. Editing the "sidebar.js" will update all the pages at one time.

EDIT PAGES: | Software choices | Notepad Editing
Edit the text on all pages with your information. You can use Frontpage, Dreamweaver, Exp Web, any wysiwyg HTML editor or a text editor like Notepad. Take care not to delete any of the HTML tags that surround the text.
EDIT TITLES, DESCRIPTIONS AND KEYWORDS: | Click for more details
Open each of the pages and change the 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 important so your site will get a good listing at Google, Yahoo! and other search engines.
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" and "gallery" folders and all files in these folders.
USING A GRAPHIC LOGO:
You can replace the Flash logo with a graphic logo. To do this, delete or rename the "header.js", then rename the "graphic_logo_header.js" to "header.js". In the picts folder you will find a graphic called "logo.gif". Edit this graphic with your logo. It's best to keep the graphic the same size that it is now unless you edit the image size numbers in the new "header.js".
ADDING ADSENSE ADS: | Click for more details
You will not see any Google ads in your template download. For details on ad setup and placement see the portal template ad setup support page. You will do only 2 steps on this support page. This is a portal "light" or LT model. After you do the steps on the support page, edit your "corporatestyle.css". Find the "RIGHT SIDEBAR OPTIONS". Adjust the "sidebarR" class so it is the width of the Google ads you are adding (this should be edited to 120 or more). Adjust the "whitespaceL" for the space between your page text and your ads.

CHANGING / ADDING BUTTONS: | 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 (see image below). 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 even add more pages by copying one button in the menu.js and pasting it right below the next. Be sure to back up your file before you edit it.
The menu used in the "image-viewer.htm" is named "menu-gallery.js". You can change and remove links in this menu file as well.
PICTURES: | Click for more details
You can replace the pictures with your own. The pictures are now 720 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.
So all your pages will maintain a standard height a "pageheight.js" file was included. Edit this file in Notepad and you can change the height="???" to any height you need.
SITE MAP PAGE:
The "site_map.htm" is linked from the index.html. It is best not to remove this link so search engines can find your site map and properly list all your pages when users search at major search engines.
