    I quite liked the wfiedler_110 on page 3 or the Football or the Soccer one on page 26.

    I'm not really after anything specatacular i would like to be able to have the club badge on the page somewhere and a few other pages where i can add contacts rules and regs etc as i have all my rules and regs etc written on word documents but haven't yet written the home page (about us).

    Clint - I sent you 2 sizes of your badge in PNG format. Unlike JPGs, pngs have no background (tranparent) and can be used over any background.

    Ok, I got those templates converted. Here’s what you need to do to install it:

    Run the install.php again and this time it will ask you to enter the name of the template. Enter soccer_templates and then click on Install Template. Two templates, wfiedler_110 and soccer should be installed in the templates folder.

    Next log into the cPanel and click on Themes under Site Management and it will show a list of themes available you to select. Add the two themes you installed using the following format:

    Click Save and it will show you the new theme selection list. Now click on Themes under the Sub Menu and Theme Selection List should now include the two new themes.

    To select the new theme for the site just click on the Theme SELECT box at the bottom and select the theme you want to use and your site should be updated with the new theme.

    Let me know if you need further help or questions.

    How do i get back into the the Install.php again ? Do i need to start all over or am i going back to the Haydon wick page i linked up earlier on in the thread ?

    You use the same install.php as previously. It will recognize that the CMS has already been installed and will show the Install Template form.

    Yes that's the bit I'm struggling to find my way back to.

    Sorry Scratch that my brain finally clicked and i got it going lol !

    Its harder than it looks and i can now see why people make top money out of this web design stuff.

    We had a contractor in at work who said he did web design and he started telling me about HTML & CSS. He lost me at that point but he did show me two sites one called W3 Schools and one called CSS Zen garden.

    I’m glad you worked it out on your own. However, there is one area you have overlooked, or perhaps you did not know what to look for, and that is the Gallery pages (page 4 and 5). This page type (gallery) requires jquery to work. Unless you have already included it in the template, which was in the default template when you installed the CMS, otherwise you have to include it in the menu. Since this is probably a bit confused to you so I did it for you. Now the Gallery pages should display correctly.

    If you’re satisfied with the layout you should update the page contents of your own as those you have now are just demos. You can also delete all of them and add the ones you want. You can go to this site to get additional info:

    Knowing HTML and CSS will definitely help out in building your websites. Like most things, it might be difficult at the beginning, but if you have the passion to learn, and perhaps patience too, you will be rewarded.

    OK so as im not so good on computers i ended up really struggling with this and ended up having a go on Wix with a blank template and i have managed to get really far with it now and only have one page left to complete but what i did find after getting this far and being really happy with what i have produced is they don't do emails with domain names :(

    So now looking at a way to transfer what i have done to a supplier that can give me a domain with at least 10 email ads included.

    I'm sorry that i wasted your time tomw and i thank you for all your efforts with helping me with the templates and so on.

    You can use email with your own domain on wix.
    You can find out more on connecting your email with wix.

    I see you successfully installed my CMS.
    The template that you would like to use is very difficult to adapt as they use images for navigation.
    Each time you add or change a page you need to create new images for it. I think this is very difficult to maintain.
    you may want to use one from open source templates. There are many sites provide such service. You may look through some of them that I put together here:
