For the first 90 days after your website goes live, you can receive assistance with your site's CMS from email@example.com for free. This free assistance is provided to help you get used to using the site's editor screens, and to customize the generic information provided to you with your template site.
Below are some very common requests that we get. We have provided you with this information to assist you with some quick answers to these common requests.
Uploading a PDF File To Link To
Have you created flyers to market your company with? Would you like your clients to be able to download these flyers from your website? Here is how you link them in.
When you have the PDF file ready to link to do the following:
Embed a Tour Right Into Your Website
We have been asked many times how to do this. This method is not for the faint of heart. It works best for those of you who have at least a little knowledge about html coding since you will be working within the Source code of your site.
If you did everything right you should see your tour embedded in your website just like this:
Use the CMS help screens or the CKeditor help screens to get used to using the site editor in general. These are just tips to help you with specific questions you have about the content inside of each page.Replacing existing images
Inside your editor window, click once on the picture you want to replace so you get the little selection box around it. Then click on the little yellow 'postcard' looking icon above it (Insert/Edit image). Hovering your mouse over this icon will show the label of the button. Clicking on this button will provide you another menu for you to upload your images to your site.
It is recommended that you size your images appropriately before uploading them. The size they need to be is NO LARGER THAN 500 pixels wide at 72 dpi (quite small). The site can do it on the fly but it will provide your site's visitors with a faster browsing experience if you have previously sized and compressed them. The pictures will load very s-l-o-w-l-y on your site if you upload them at full size.
To place the image on the right or left of text on your page just use the Align drop-down in the image pop-up window. To add space around that image, so your text doesn't butt right up to it, add 5 or 10 (pixels) into the hpsace (horizontal space) field, or the vspace (vertical space) field. If you do not select any alignment for your image, the text will not wrap around it.
To add a link to your image once you have your image in place, click on the 'Link' tab in the same popup. Here replace any existing link with your new link. Adding a link to an image will give that image a blue border in many browsers. This can be avoided by going back to the Image Info tab in that same pop-up and putting zero into the border field. Click okay, and if you did everything right, your new image and link should be there instead. Scroll to the bottom of the edit page and click 'Submit'.
Adding your own images
Adding/Deleting rows from your Pricing Packages
If you have the old expandable package tables, please DO NOT use this menu to delete those package tables! There is invisible code around the package tables that cause them to open and close dynamically on your site. Deleting the package table will mess this up and possibly disable all the packages on your page. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to add or delete package tables.

Adding Paypal Buttons
Assistance with placing Paypal buttons on your site can be provided to you for free for 90 days after your site goes live. After that 90 day period our assistance will cost $100/hr. Placing Paypal buttons on your site can take us anywhere from 1-4 hours depending on how many buttons you want to place.
It is very important that you first get your products customized to your preferred pricing and offerings before you arrange for placement of Paypal buttons on your site. When you're ready to do it, allow yourself 1-4 hours to get all the code you need to provide us with from Paypal.
If you are familiar enough with html, you can place that code you obtain into your pages yourself. It's as easy as finding the location for your button within your Source code of the page you want to place the button on, and pasting the Paypal code for it in there. If html looks like a foreign language to you, then it's important that you address placing the buttons on your site within the first 90 days to take advantage of the free assistance from us.
If you'd like to add the Paypal buttons, then you need to establish a Premier or Business Paypal account at paypal.com (if you haven't already).
Request the code for each button you'd like to place on your site by doing this on the Paypal website:
