The ACME All-Purpose Template Package...
- The ACME Theme with defined navigation buttons, fonts, and colors.
This Theme must be applied with Cascading Style Sheets for the
colors and fonts to show up properly.
- Subtle Flash animation in upper right of pages.
- Lots of extra Swish movies! See the contact
page, services page, and
- Splash page with Swish movie. You will need Swish 2+ to edit the
- Automatic Flash detection for splash page. If your user doesn't
have Flash, they will see a static image. You may edit "splash-left.jpg"
in an image editor such as Photoshop or PhotoDraw with your text for
viewers who don't have Flash.
- Info boxes in both the left and right columns.
- Classy, flexible page layout. Includes a "liquid" page template
if you want this page to resize to 800x600+ browser window sizes. (Default
pages are static to fit in 800x600 minimum windows.)
How to make a new web using this web template
- Go to File/New/Web (2000) or File/New/Page or Web (2002).
- In 2002, you will need to click "Web Template" in the right side
- Choose the Imagination web template, and specify the location you
want to publish to.
- Click "OK" and wait for FrontPage to create your new web.
Adding New Pages to Your Web
Open a page that has the layout the way you want it, then go to File/Save
As. Save the page under a new name - be sure to change the page title
as well! Then, go to Navigation View and drag your new page into the navigation
Deleting Pages from Your Web
Right-click on the pages you wish to delete in your Folder List, in
Folder View, or in Navigation View, then select "Delete."
If you would like to use an existing page but want to rename it, you
may easily do this in Folders View. Right-click on the file name and/or
the page title and choose "Rename" to rename your file.
We have formatted the tables so that this page will look good and resize
in Netscape and Internet Explorer. If you wish to change the layout, please
follow these instructions.
About this page layout
This page has been very carefully formatted with different nesting
tables so that it resizes both vertically and horizontally. Do not
drag on any table lines - you may "freeze" the page so that it no
longer resizes properly.
Please note that the top bar uses the "top level" navigation buttons.
Any other type of navigation button will have blue text, which will not
show up in the blue bar. If you wish to change the navigation buttons
to a different type, you may wish to use text links, create your own button
graphics, or, if you use FP2002, create a text link style.
Adding other columns to the page
We suggest that you do not directly add columns to this layout, as
you may accidentally "freeze" the page so that it no longer resizes. Instead,
delete the page template content, then go to Table/Insert/Table to add
your own table in the center area. You may click within a table and go
to Table > Select > Table to get a better idea of the table structure
of this page.
Cascading Style Sheets
If you apply the theme without Cascading Style Sheets, the fonts will
be "normal" sized, and you may resize them yourself.
If you apply the theme with Cascading Style Sheets, your default font
will be 10pt. We also included a custom style called "small" in a smaller
font, to use in your info boxes. Any changes you make manually to the
fonts will show up in Internet Explorer, but not in some versions of Netscape.
Style sheets are a nice way to globally change properties of paragraphs
and text -- instead of having to go to each page and change your text
from 8pt to 10pt, you can just change the style sheet.
If you would like to define a new "style" (a certain way to display
text -- what font, size, color, etc.), you may modify the theme or create
new style information.
To modify the style sheet associated, with the theme: Go to Format/Theme,
click the Modify button, click the Text button, click on More Text Styles,
and create a new style. Once you are back in Normal View, you may access
these styles from the Style dropdown menu. Styles are usually applied
to entire paragraphs.
To modify or create a new style sheet, go to Format/Style.
Please see the Flash info page.
