The image is inserted with the css file

Just look at the css file and you will see:

/* header */
.header {
background: url(img/header.jpg) no-repeat;
height: 180px;
margin: 0 auto;
width: 630px;
}


Meaning you have a folder called img with an image called header.jpg


Just replace that image, or if you want to edit the size (presumably the height?), just change the value above from 180px to whatever height image you are using.

You edit the htm file for the content. The layout design is within the css file.

Yes, I know who it is too!

Looks ok. Simple design layout..... but that is what is reqd for the content.

More to the point, is there anything YOU don't like about it?

Where do I stand with regards to copyright? Do i need to state where I got the template from?

I notice you've taken the authors name from the bottom footer, http://templates.arcsin.se

Not very nice tbh, I've had people steal my templates before and its horrible. As I spent many hours on photoshop working hard on layouts just for some people to come along and steal it, change the top image and a few colours then all of a sudden they think they can put there name at the bottom...

I've kindly emailled him asking if this is ok, and that i would link his site to my portfolio site once I have designed and uploaded it. If Arcsin comes back to me and asks for it to be amended, then so be it.

On another note nacider/guv, I'm after a nice template that would go nice with a reflexogy website.([url]www.gentlehands.co.uk[/url]) A little bit like THIS ONE, but the other half perfers picks/light red. If anyone gets me one within the next couple days, I'll Rep them immesly and through then a little something their way :thumbsup:

really you should have his name at the bottom. on some templates people watermark the layout with their name so nobody can take it off unless they completely change all the images.. just speaking from a designers point of view - its not nice to take a layout and hide the credit

i dont wanna take credit for the layout, and will glady leave me name off altogether, leaving the bttm green bar, blank.

Do you think you can find/create me a template for my needs?

Design looks very similar to the one you are using, though colours really are not an issue in the slightest and very easy to amend.

I agree with nacider BTW. You havent designed it and useage for free is on the proviso you give the guy credit for his work.

Now I've mention to you previously a site that I wholeheartedly recomend for layout design. Have you not had a look? [url]www.projectseven.com[/url]

Oh no it isn't!!!!!!

You may recall me mentioning one of the designs being used on this site of mine. (Soon to die as the domain and hosting is being dropped)

I was talking about this new design you were looking at as being similar.

Hi Guys

Is there anyway I can update links on all 7 pages, without doing this individually? (theres 10links per page, hence 70 times I'd need to do it)

(im using a OSWD template btw) Rep waiting :thumbsup:

Since those pages are static and presumably all in the root DIR, all you need to do is create this once, then copy and post to the relevant highlighted part in each page and replace. There is no easier option, apart from saving the index, then saving again as the next page and so on until you have ten pages all the same. You then edit from there. But the better option would be to use something like dreamweaver, save as a template and dreamweaver will create all your pages with correctly linked pages - even if you save them in a directory further up the tree.

done it... once again, you excel in all things advanced :thumbsup:

The residents site is there, or there abouts, just need info before i can update/link..
