I'm trying to set up a site on 1&1.com and having a little trouble, I downloaded a template from the forum here, then transferred it via filezilla to 1&1, but that as far as I can get.
I'm not sure if it would be easier to use html or I can somehow get it to work just by uploading them one at a time.
any help would be appreciated.

Have you been able to upload any of the files to your new site? Can you tell me the url so I can see what you are doing so far?

I was told that I can't upload a template, I thought that these were graphics to upload to put on the template?
The URL is downtoearthlpm.com (http://www.downtoearthlpm.com), it hasn't been activated yet.

I have a bunch of free website templates I made you can download and unzip. Then upload the files to your website.

You can edit the html files in a txt notepad editor.

Can you try and just simply upload the unzipped template to your domain? Then we can start working on editing the html.

I'm all set now and have uploaded the graphics and I think I have a template ready that is close.

Which site is it on? I just went to this one and nothing was there but a graphic place holder.

I think I finally got it up and going, just need to get a custom template and my own graphics uploaded, then start optimizing it.
