Okay, I obtained open-realty through my host, it was automatically installed, whew...I do all my website building through front page, these php have got me totally confused. Is there any way to change them to a htm or html? Or am I just way in over my head?

I am sure you would have more luck with Notepad!

Actually if you just read the install instructions you might be able to install the program without editing any code at all. Depeding on if your ISP support PHP and MYSQL.

I am just wondering how to edit the templates and view them as I go. Notepad won't let me do that. My open-realty is located at:

If you convert your PhP web pages to .html they won't work. If you need to change the design of your web site you will need to know a little PhP. Just enough to know where to insert html code.

Most of the design is in the template folder. The css file and the style.php file have most of the design. The top and bottom files also control how the top and bottoms of your pages look. Although they are .html files you should not open them with FrontPage.

I use FrontPage for some parts of my web site but for the .PhP files I use notepad or Ultraedit. If you try to save any of the PhP files or the top and bottom files in the template folder it will mess up the page and break the application. You should make sure you have a back of the OR site so if something goes wrong you can replace files that are messed up.

This is the site I am working on and I am almost done.

The first thing you need to do is open the index.php page on your site with a text editor and edit the text area on your home page to read how you like it. Its pretty straight forward and not difficult, just erase the openrealty info and replace it with your own. This will allow you to personalize the page to your company. You can also add your logo to the top by modifying the title.jpg picture to your own by the same name in the template/verticlemenu/images file. Then edit your listings, unless you actually have the white house listed. Then your page should start to look like your own. Heres the one I just did from a lunarpages install with just a few modifications. www.billiejacoby.net (http://www.billiejacoby.net) :)

if you check the templates forum on here you'll find a little basic information on modifying or using the Open-realty templates...

I'll try to provide a better answer with a little detail when I get home from work if you still are confused
