Step 1:
CHOOSE HOMEPAGE: | More Details
  1. If you will be using the default homepage (index.html), move the "No-Animation-Home-sample.htm" and "OPTIONAL-index-1.html" into the extras folder. Skip to the next step.

  2. If you would like to use the OPTIONAL-index-1.html as your homepage, move the "index.html" and "No-Animation-Home-sample.htm" into the extras folder. Rename the "OPTIONAL-index-1.html" page to "index.html".

  3. If you would like to use the No-Animation-Home-sample.htm (No jQuery Animation) as your homepage, move the "index.html" and "OPTIONAL-index-1.html" into the extras folder. Rename the "No-Animation-Home-sample.htm" page to "index.html". (This page does not include the jQuery slideshow as outlined in step #5 below.)

Step 2:
EDIT HEADER: | More Details
Edit the "logo.jpg" in the picts folder with your logo image. The header background HEX color is the ".headercolor" class in the "coolstyle.css" file. A "logo.PSD" file is located in the "extras" folder. The default logo font used is 29 points "AvantGarde Bk BT" and the slogan font used is 18 points.

OPTIONAL PLAIN TEXT HEADER: To use the text header option, edit the "var logotype" in the "header.js" from "graphic" to "text". Edit the "Your Company Name" text for the "var LogoText" in the "header.js" with your site name.

Step 3:
EDIT COPYRIGHT: | More Details
Open the "footer-copyright.js" file in Notepad or any text editor, edit the "Yourcompany.com" text with your website or company name. This will update the footer info on all pages. Edit all ".js" files with a text editor.

Step 4:
EDIT CONTACT INFO: | More Details
Open the "contact.js" file in Notepad or any text editor and change the company name, address, phone and fax numbers and email address (edit the email in 2 places). This will update contact info on the "contact" page.

In the "contact.htm" edit the map link. Go to the map site you use, search for your location, copy the link from the address bar, paste this link over the link in the map image.

To edit the email links in the agents page edit the "agents.htm".

Step 5:
REPLACE HOMEPAGE SLIDESHOW IMAGES (optional): | More Details
The homepage (index.html) includes a slideshow application called the "jQuery Cycle Plugin". In the "JQuery-Cycle" folder replace 5 images, "imageJQ-1.jpg" through "imageJQ-5.jpg". Make your images 850 x 300 pixels. This will update the homepage animation. Click the link above for details and options. Cycle set #1 is used on the homepage.

The location of the "Next & Prev arrows" can be edited in the "coolstyle.css". PSD next prev files are located in the "extras" folder.

Step 6:
EDIT THE CONTACT & QUOTES FORM: | Click for more details

Click for current info on setting up the template forms.

Click for info on adding more fields to the forms.

Click for changing form sizes or colors.

Because of the complexity of setting up the quote form, there are notes in the "quotes.htm" to help you cut and paste to add new form fields. The form will work with most contact form scripts however you will need help files or a sample form from the script you intend to use. Most form elements work the same way from script to script, however the hidden values usually vary. You may want to consider editing the entire page in Notepad instead of a wysiwyg editor.

If you want to use only email on the contact page you can remove the contact form by deleting between the "REMOVE FORM" notes in the "contact.htm". Or... you can delete the "contact.htm", rename the "agents.htm" to "contact.htm" and remove the "agents" link in the "menu.js", "footer.htm" and "site_map.htm".

Step 7:
REPLACE THE FEATURED HOMES PICTURES: | 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.

  1. In the "gallery" folder, replace the 6 "homes-page-?.jpg" pictures with your thumbnails. These images are now 120 x 80 pixels. This will update the "featured-homes.htm" page and also the homepage (index.html) sidebar.

  2. Replace the 30 "Fhomes?.jpg" pictures with full size photos. Each featured home includes 5 full sized views. "Fhomes" images are 400 x 267 pixels, however, you can make them any size that you prefer. This will update the 6 "featured-?.htm" pages.

  3. Replace the 30 "homes?.jpg" pictures with your thumbnails. These thumbnails are now 60 x 40 pixels. This will update the 6 "featured-?.htm" pages.

NOTES:
There are a total of 11 images per featured home. Example, for home #1 (featured-1.htm) edit the "home-small-1.jpg" the "Fhomes1-1.jpg" through "Fhomes1-5.jpg" and the "homes1-1.jpg" through "homes1-5.jpg" images.

Step 8:
EDIT LEFT SIDEBAR: | More Details
You will edit the "sidebar-left.htm" like any other HTML page. Editing the "sidebar-left.htm" will update all the pages at one time. If you need more height in the sidebar you can edit the "sidebar-frame-left" height style in the "coolstyle.css".

Step 9:
EDIT RIGHT SIDEBAR: | More Details
You will edit the "sidebar-right.htm" like any other HTML page. Editing the "sidebar-right.htm" will update all the pages at one time. If you need more height in the sidebar you can edit the "sidebar-frame-right" height style in the "coolstyle.css".

Step 10:
SETUP THE MLS IDX HOME SEARCH:

Step 11:
EDIT TWITTER FACEBOOK LINKEDIN LINKS: | Social Links | .js variable editing

Step 12:
PDF PAGE SETUP: | More Details
In the "PDF" folder, replace the "PDFsample1.pdf" through "PDFsample6.pdf" with your PDF files. Edit the "PDFgallery.htm" with info for your PDF files. Click link above for setup details.

Step 13:
EDIT THE MENUS AND DROPDOWN MENUS: | Menu Editing | Adding Pages
This template includes horizontal CSS menus. You can edit the menus as you need and add and remove links and pages. You will edit the menu.js in a text editor to change the menu names and add items. Click for CSS horizontal menu help.

Step 14:
EDIT PAGES: | Software Choices | Notepad Editing
Edit the text on all HTML pages with your information. You can use a text editor like Notepad, or HTML editor like Expression Web, Frontpage, Dreamweaver or any wysiwyg editor. Take care not to delete any of the HTML tags that surround the text. You will find notes inside each page to help you navigate. NOTE: You will not see the footer and header in some software because they are .js include files so you can globally edit your header, footer, sidebars, and other items.

Step 15:
EDIT TITLES, DESCRIPTIONS AND KEYWORDS: | 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 with your product or service info. 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. Click for optimization help.

Step 16:
UPLOAD: | 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", "gallery", "PDF", and "JQuery-Cycle" folders and all files in these folders.
