Step 1:
EDIT TITLE:
Open the "title.js" in Notepad or any text editor file and change the "YOUR COMPANY NAME" and "YOUR COMPANY SLOGAN GOES HERE...." lines to match your names. This will change the upper and lower logo info on all pages. If you want to use a graphic logo there is more info below.

Step 2:
EDIT COPYRIGHT:
Open the "copyright.js" in Notepad or any text editor file and change the "Your Company" and "info@yourdomain.com" lines to match your information. This will change the lower page info on all pages.

Step 3:
EDIT CONTACT INFO:
Open the "contact.js" in Notepad or any text editor file and change the company name, address, phone number and e-mail address. This will change contact info on the contact page.

Step 4:
EDIT PAGES:
Change the text on all pages to match your information. You can use Microsoft Frontpage or a text editor like notepad. Take care not to delete any of the HTML tags that surround the text.

Step 5:
EDIT THE CONTACT FORM:
If you are setup with an AllWebCo hosting account. Go to your control panel at "http://your-domain.com/cgi-bin/plusmail" and install the free script "Formail" then edit the contact page and replace "your-domain.com" with your domain.

If you are not set up with AllWebCo hosting or do not have "Formail" installed. You can either setup the contact form to use another contact script, install "Formail" on your server or you can remove the contact form from the pages between the comment tags.

If you wish to change the sizes of the form elements you can open the "style.css" and change the ".shadeform" ".textarea" and ".dropdown" width numbers.

Step 6:
EDIT TITLES, DESCRIPTIONS AND KEYWORDS:
Open each of the seven 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. Keywords are very important so your site will get a good listing at google or msn and other search engines.

Step 7:
UPLOAD:
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 directory called picts on your server and put the pictures into that directory.



Options:

FONTS:
You can change your font colors and sizes by editing the "style.css" with a text editor. You can find other font colors by clicking here. You can also change the font sizes in the "style.css" file. Change the "FONT" px size to change the copy on all pages. Change the "title" px size to change all the title sizes.

MENU LINKS:
You can change the names of the links like "About Us" or "What's New" to other page names by editing the "menu.js". 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 but copying one link in the menu.js and pasting it right below the next. Be sure to back up your file before you edit them.

NOTE: If you use a ' in a .js file add a slash before it like this \'.

USING A GRAPHIC LOGO:
You can replace the text logo with a graphic one. To do this, delete or rename the title.js, then rename the "graphic_logo_title.js" to "title.js". In the picts directory you will find a graphic called "logo.gif", open this graphic and edit it with your logo. The size should remain 100 x 400 unless you edit the numbers in the new "title.js". It is recommended that you do not exceed 150 pixels in height.

PICTURES:
You can replace the pictures with your own. The pictures are now 450 x 150 pixels but you can use any size picture you want. It's best not to go wider than 450. Each page has it's own picture which is named according to the page it's on. You will find all pictures in the "images" directory.

ADDING PAGES:
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 links below another. Be sure to back up your files before you edit them.
