Learning Your Template

<< Installing Your Template Tutorial - Main Tutorial Page - Remove/Add Pages Tutorial >>

 
Exploring your template will help you familiarize yourself with layouts and pages that are currently available to you. It may even give you ideas that will help you make your site grow. You do not need to use all the pages immediately and will learn in the next section how to move or remove these pages.

Extensions & Default Pages: (see image on left)

Start with the index.html - The reason the extension for this is .html is because most servers use index.html as the "default page" also known as the "home page". On some rare occasions they use default.html or welcome.html you will know for sure when you set up your account on the server. They will instruct you on what the default page should be. In our templates, it will always be index.html.

Even though there is really no difference between .htm and .html we do not recommend using .html extensions because 9 out of 10 people will automatically type in .htm and not .html.

Weird File Names: (see image on left)

In some templates you will see weird files such as: menu.js or changingthedropdownmenu.txt. These are Java Script files and Help Files! Occasionally you will edit the .js files, but ONLY when you are instructed to. Changing .js files when you do not know what to do will cause your website to break. The .txt files will help you with specific template functions. There is a readme.txt to help you get started and the changingthedropdownmenu.txt to help you learn how to change your drop down menu (should your template contain this feature).

Folders: (see image below)

You will see folders in your template such as: images, styles, includes (some templates), and _private. The _private folder is not for you to mess with. This is something Microsoft programs put into their web's. The image folder is exactly what it sounds like, the image directory.

To view the "Folder List" as you see below isn't always showing when you open FrontPage or Expression Web. If you do not see it (like shown in the image below) you just click View-Folder List or Alt-F1...

The include folder (if your template contains this) is again, exactly what it sounds like, it will contain your include pages. If you do not have an include folder, we highly recommend creating your own and putting those files into there. The reason being is simply helping keep your files organized and easy to follow. The more pages you add in the harder it is to keep up with. (not shown in image)

The "unused" folder is a folder that I include for a different reason you will learn at a later time, this will not be included with your template.

Lastly there is a folder called style. This folder is to help keep all your .css files in one place and easy to manage. You can use dozens of .css files in your website, so try and keep them in one place and named easily so that you can call on any style sheet you need at any time.
