Step 1:
EDIT FLASH ANIMATION: | Click for more details
Open the "flash.txt" file with Notepad or any text editor and change "Your Website Title" to match your name or company name. Be sure not to delete the "logo=". Edit the text following "&textline=". You can also leave this line blank but do not delete the "&textline=" code. This will change the Flash logo on all pages. If you wish to use a graphic logo, there are instructions later in this document.

Step 2:
EDIT FOOTER: | Click for more details
Open the "footer.js" file in Notepad or any text editor, and change the "Your Company" line with your company name. This will change the lower page info on all pages. Edit all ".js" files with a text editor.

Step 3:
EDIT CONTACT INFO: | Click for more details
Open the "phone.js" file in Notepad or any text editor and change the e-mail address in 8 total areas with your e-mails. Or you can turn off any e-mails you are not using in the phone.js. This will change contact info on the contact page. Be sure to test these e-mail links.

Step 4:
REPLACE THE SOUND FILES:
In the "sounds" folder replace the home-sound.mp3 with your .mp3 file. This will update the sound on the index.html. You can use any length or size .mp3 file you would like but generally it's best to use a short sample for this sound file. In the "sounds" folder replace the "song-1.mp3" through "song-12.mp3" with your own .mp3 files. This will update the "samples.htm". You can use any length .mp3 file for these files. See "Options" below if you would like to add another samples page.

Step 5:
EDIT THE sidebar.js: | More Details
Open the "sidebar.js" file in Notepad or any text editor. There are some variables at the top you can change. You can start by editing the following line about 15 lines down in the sidebar.js:

document.write('This area is for notes or links. Edit the sidebar.js to update this text. ');

Edit only the text in the center and do not disturb the code at the start and end of each line. The sidebar is a global file and all pages will update when you edit this file. You can also replace the "sidebar-1.jpg" and "sidebar-2.jpg" in the "picts" folder with your own images.

Step 6:
EDIT PAGES: | Software choices | Notepad Editing
Edit the text on all HTML pages with your information. You can use Frontpage, Dreamweaver, GoLive, any wysiwyg HTML editor or a text editor like Notepad. Take care not to delete any of the HTML tags that surround the text.

Step 7:
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 or MSN and other search engines.

Step 8:
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 the "sounds" folders and all files in these folders.
