The template folder includes seven Dreamweaver templates (.dwt files)
and sample pages created from the templates (.htm files). The sample template
folders also include image files that appear on the templates (.gif or
.jpg files, located in the images folder).
Blank tab graphics are included for sites needing 3-7 top level categories.
These are found in the Images folder. Import the needed blank tab graphics
into your graphics program (Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, Image Composer,
etc.). If the program allows, place them in layers, making an additional
layer for the words. Display each layer of the tab graphics, one at a
time, plus the word layer, save the newly modified tabs as .gifs, and
export into the template.
OR use the Fireworks editable .png files found in the PNGs folder. Complete
step-by-step instructions can also be found there. If you do not have
Fireworks, a free trial copy is available from Macromedia. With the .png
files the color and size of the tabs can be easily changed.
Tip: Give the new .gifs the same file names as the original tabs in the
template, letting them override the original graphics in the images folder.
This way they will automatically fall into place in the template. After
the new graphics are in the images folder, rename the files to make more
sense for your site.
The font used on the tabs was Verdana, commonly found on Widows operating
systems. There is room on each tab for two rows of words.
We are also available to modify the tab and company name graphics for
a nominal fee. Please contact us for details.
An optional Swish movie is included on the Home page. Swish 1.51 or higher
is needed to modify the movie.
A blank graphic is provided for you to add your own company name.
The tab link navigation is an image map created in Dreamweaver. All other
navigation is text.
