Template Builders Guide
- All images need to be in the /images/ folder. The wizard does not copy the entire website, but, rather, specific folders and items that would be necessary to define the template.
- The logo <img> tag must have attribute id="logo"
<img src="/images/logo.gif" id="logo" alt="Our Logo" />
- The inner most tag for the title must have attribute id=”header_title”
- The inner most tag for the tagline must have attribute id=”tagline”.
Wrong: <div id="tagline"><p>My Tagline</p></div>
Correct: <div><p id="tagline">My Tagline</p></div>
- Use the CSS menus for any set of navigation links, including the bottom and the right border areas. Here are the reasons for this:
- The customer can use the CSS menus styles editor to revise the look, and the menu items editor to add/revise links. This is easier for most users.
- The wizard will automatically use the pages the customers select to create the menu items. This is probably a better starting point than the choices the artist makes.
- You actually have much better positioning control using the CSS menu parameters editor, as compared to manually inserting tables.
- Border area and content area colors and background images are modifiable in the wizard. You may wish to set your border artwork as background colors and images to allow this.
- Use centered pages. The CSS editor has a quick-setup button available when editing site styles for centering your pages.
- Wherever possible, use CSS to apply decorations such as to reduce possibility of customer disturbing template design while adding content.
- Paths to images need to be absolute, not relative (i.e. use “/images/my_img.jpg” instead of “images/my_img.jpg”). This is so that images will show up in the editor rather than just an image place holder.
You will want your template to be as "read-to-go" as possible such that users can install your template and just add content. Defining your content classes is important to eliminate the need to manually format text and so forth. We recommend that (as a minimum) you create the following sub-classes and define the styles for:
- #content p
- #content h1
- #content h2
- #content h3
- #content a:link
- #content a:visited
- #content a:hover
- #content a:active
