Xsite Pro Question: Possible to import html templates?

by Mad Dawg 10 replies
Hey warriors,

The title pretty much says it all. I got a graphic designer to do a wonderful html template for my site, but now I have no clue how to import it to xsite pro. I'd really rather not have to redo the whole thing in frontpage.

Does anyone know how to import an hmtl template, borders header, footer, and all, into xsite pro?

Thanks warriors!

    Hi Noah,

    Go to "Page Layout"... For example, at the top it says "Header Panel" and you can upload your own header image from your hard drive. You can do the same with the footer and background. Just remember to also adjust the width of your left panel and right panel.

    All the best,
    Francois

      Thanks Francouis,

      The template has a different background in the margins up along the header template than it does along the rest of the margins. Is there anyway to control this in xsitepro? Its the only thing I cant make look right.

      Thanks again!

        Hi Noah,

        I am not sure I understand exactly what you mean... You can also upload another background image in the "Info Bar" and the "Main Panel Header". Won't this solve the problem?

    I too have problems with importing templates into XSP. If it's just the basic header, footer and margins I'm okay, but I have no idea how to do tables (that I want content inside).

    Sometimes I wish I was more "techie"

      I get asked this all the time so i just made a video about it.

      The short answer is you need to publish your site to your desktop, then import all the images into XSitePro's resource manager. Open up your web layout tab and reset the panels to match your old template and then use the images where appropriate - header/footer/background, etc.

      When bringing in the content from the site you should strip the html code via a text editor and then paste it into the design tab of each page, then reformat.

      If you need a designer to do this for you there are plenty of very competent XSitePro designers around. Check the WSO section because quite often there are $69 specials for custom templates and i'm sure they would rather copy an existing site than make one from scratch.

      The XSitePro forum also has lots of designers who are really good at XSitePro.

        Wow, James! I just got a splittin' headache reading these instructions. I've got XSP version 2 sitting on my hard drive unused because of this.

        Is there a link to your video? How much is it?

          If I remember correctly, XSitePro comes with videos. I know it comes with a guide that is only about 400 pages long. Nothing to be a-scared of...just refer to it as you go along. You don't have to know everything on the first day.

          Consider it an investment in time. It will be easier the next time you use it.
