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.
Fireworks file included
This template includes the original Adobe Fireworks file that was used to create the graphics for the template. All images are vector images so you can easily customize the colors, shading, etc. All images retain the image slices too, so exporting new images from Fireworks is very easy.
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.
