High Velocity Template
This template has a variety of options for the top banner images. Select from a spit-banner, a full banner or no banner. The sidebar navigation is not in an editable region, so navigation stays consistent on each page. To customize the navigation for individual pages, simply enclose the "subnav" id in an editable region in Dreamweaver.
To make navigation even easier, consider using a PHP include for your navigation. This gives you the option of having several different navigation options which can each be easily edited in one file.
Google AdSense Ready
The template includes a pre-styled container for Google AdSense ads. In the right sidebar, you can easily insert a 160x600 ad by simply inserting a div with the class "google160". Simply copy/paste your AdSense code into this div and your add will be properly spaced in the sidebar.
What's the Catch?
We supply our templates and graphic files free of charge, with the only requirement being the small link at the bottom of the template be left in place and not altered in any way. We've styled it very small and unobtrusive, so that's a pretty minor requirement considering the time we spend creating these templates AND it will keep us developing more templates in the future! If you wish to remove the link, please contact us for information regarding template licensing.
Thanks for trying out our template and if you run into any code or browser issues, let us know. We test our templates in IE 6, IE 7, Firefox 2, Netscape 9 and Opera 9, so if there's any issues on Safari we'd be interested to know.
