Editing the logo
Each web template comes with a blank logo which can be edited with a graphic editor of your choice. If you do not have a graphic editor we recommend a trial copy of Paintshop Pro (Corel). Editing varies depending on the program, here we show an example using Paintshop Pro. In this example we use template #1 available on this site.
Step 1) Open the blank logo that is included with this template with your graphics editor. It can be found in the source folder and is called blank_logo.jpg.
Step 2) Using the font tool available in the graphics program, add your logo and make necessary adjustments until satisfied with the result, then save the new image in the templates main folder under a different name. For example, name the file newlogo.jpg and save it to the same folder where the index.html is found.
Step 3) Now that the new logo has been made and saved, it is time to add it to the index.html (the page). Open the html file with your html editor or text editor (in the following image, we use windows notepad). Find the location of the temporary logo (which is always marked with a comment tag noting its location), and insert the new logo. You need to type the new files location and name (remove the img/ if you saved to the index.html files location), width and height and save the file.
Changing links, editing the menu
Menus vary in the templates, some are text and some are graphical buttons which are edited exactly like the logo, and then inserted into the index.html using the <img> tag. To change where a 'link' links, modify the address or file name inside of this html tag <a href="pagenamehere.html">text link or image here</a>. The menu area of a template is normally marked by a comment tag that looks like this:
Adding page content
In all our templates, there is space to add textual content, images, etc. and it is marked by comment tags generally saying 'add content here'. In this space you may add anything you wish, and here is a screenshot of what this looks like in a templates html:
