Edit the text following "&logo-FAQ=" with your FAQ popup logo text. Be sure not to delete the "&logo-FAQ=".

EDIT CONTACT INFO: | Click for more details
Open the "contact.js" in Notepad or any text editor and edit the company name, address, phone and fax numbers, and the e-mail address (edit the email in 2 places). This will update the contact info on the "contact" page. This is done in a .js file so search engines won't see your e-mail and you'll get less spam.
EDIT THE CONTACT AND QUOTES FORM:
Click for current info on setting up the template forms.
Click for info on adding more fields to the forms.
Click for changing form sizes or colors.
If you want to use only e-mail on the contact page you can remove the contact form from the "contact.htm" between the comment tags.
Because of the complexity of setting up the quote form, there are notes in the "quotes.htm" to help you cut and paste to add new form fields. The form will work with most contact form scripts however you will need help files or a sample form from the script you intend to use. Most form elements work the same way from script to script, however the hidden values usually vary. You may want to consider editing the entire page in Notepad instead of a wysiwyg editor.
REPLACE THE GALLERY PICTURES: | Click for more details
The best way to setup the pictures in the gallery is not to actually edit the HTML pages and change the pictures on each individual page. The fastest way is to simply replace the .jpg pictures in the "gallery" folder with your own by overwriting the files that are in there now and using the same generic names.
In the "gallery" folder, replace the 36 "Fgallery" pictures with full size photos. Replace the 36 "gallery" pictures with your thumbnails. The thumbnails are now 100 x 67 pixels and Fgallery images are 500 x 333, but you can make them any size that you prefer. There is info on the other pictures in this template later in this document.
IMAGE VIEWER OPTIONS: | Click for more details

Editing the "sidebar.js" will update the left side area under the menu of all HTML template pages at one time. Example: In the "sidebar.js" find the "START SIDEBAR TEXT", after this note edit the text with your sidebar info. Edit the "This side bar area can be used..." text with your own text.
