Instructions

Changing Button Names 

The names that appear on navigation bar buttons are dynamically generated by FrontPage based upon the names that appear on the page icons in the Navigation View flow chart. You can change the names to suit your needs provided the names are brief enough to fit on the button graphics.

To change the names on navigation buttons:

Switch to FrontPage Navigation View.
Right click on the page icon that represents the link you wish to change.
Type a new name.
Right click in the blue area, and selecting "Apply Changes."

Adding Pages

It's easy to create new pages and add them to the navigation bars. You can expand the navigation bars to accommodate as many pages as you need.

To Add a Page to the Nav Bars:

In navigation view, select and open a page that exists on the same level of the chart as the page you wish to add.
Save it as a new page.
Drag it onto the Navigation View flow chart.
In the Navigation View, rename the page to suit your needs.
Customize the content and save.

Deleting Pages

You can delete a page from your navigation bar without deleting it from your web by clicking on the page to highlight it in the Navigation View, pressing the "delete" button, and selecting "Remove this page from all navigation bars." To delete the page entirely, select that option instead.

Changing Graphics

Replace the template graphics with your own graphics created in a graphics editor such as Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro etc. We've made it easy to change the header graphic above by providing you with a graphic minus "Your Company." This allows you to use the same graphics as used above but with your own "Site" info or company name. Again - you will need to open the blank graphic with a graphics editor to make the changes.

Include Files

Note that some elements elements that occur on all pages of this site exist as include pages. You can find these include pages in the "includes" folder of this web. Here are the include pages currently in use on this web.

header.htm 
left_info_box.htm 
left_contact_box.htm
nav_bottom.htm
footer.htm

The include pages are inserted into the main pages in order to allow you to make global changes to your site or change many pages at the same time. To do this you must right click on the area you would like to edit. If it is indeed an include page you will see something like this in the pop up menu:

Open file: c:\ location and name of include page

Or - you can open the include pages via folders view. Once the file is open - make the necessary changes and save them. All pages utilizing the include page should update upon saving.

Cascading Style Sheets

In folders view, double-click on horizons.css. This will open the CSS page. The code governing the links in the header, in the body, and at the bottom of the page will be found there.

a.small:link controls the navigation bar in the left column. 
a:link controls the body links.

To change the color of the links - simply make changes to the html color coding such as #ffffff or #336699. Find the HTML color code for the color of your choice and insert the number in place of the existing one.

If you wish to remove the Cascading Style Sheet properties...simply remove the code calling the sheet in the head section of the include pages as well as any code associated with it in the body of the include pages such as <LINK REL=STYLESHEET TYPE="text/css" HREF="horizons.css"> </head> and class="small"

For more information on Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) consult the following online resources:

This column is a cell with a colored background. We have inserted a table so your text will not touch the edges of the cell.

This would be a good place to list special features of your website, updates, or secondary navigation.
