Hey everyone,
I have been looking around at all these templates and I'm just not sure how they work. Can I change the background of the template? And can I change out all of the pictures? Just curious!
Any suggestions are where I should buy the template?

Are you using html? If so, I have no idea how to help..Who are you hosting through?I know on godaddy.com's website tonight, you can change the templates they have. You just click on it,and at the top it should say "edit template" And you can make your own through paint or microsoft word, or whichever program you have! hth

I don't actually have anything set up. I don't have a domain name, webhosting or anything. I'm just trying to figure it all out. It just seems so complicated.

Thanks for letting me know about the godaddy templates. I appreciate it!

I started out using html, and I had the hardest time. You really have to know what you are doing. I must have call the customer service for help like 6 times, before I finally switched to website tonight. That one is so much easier, you just drag and drop stuff that you want.
Unfortunately, I can't help much, but if you do get a site, trust me, save yourself a migraine and get one that's not html!! icon_biggrin.gif

Yes and no . . . Read the website carefully. Most of the time you can change out almost everything in a template. Sometimes there are elements that you can't change.

I just redid the website for my B&B using a template, and I could change out the pictures at the top, but I had to have 3 pictures- not 1 or 2, not 4. Most of the time you can change out the background, but not always. The website will tell you what is changeable.
