Gopher, again, thanks for all your help in helping folks get their websites started. I am currently working on modifying temp #5 for my business. For some reason, when I downloaded it I did not get the Welcome page , so I can not modify it. It comes up when navigating buttons from one of the other pages but does not have it's own file to pull up directly in a HTML editor.Is this a problem on your end or did something go wrong with the download?
Also, I would really like to add a page for Core-Aeration, as well as a page for seasonal tips and specials combined. Is this possible? If not, is there a way I can change the Testimonials button and page header to read Core-Aeration instead of Testimonials? I am using Coffecup 2005 HTML editor but am mostly using the visual editiing features since I am totally new to HTML code. Tried to change the button in Code editting mode but the button looked different when I was done, so I didn't save the changes. Actually looking to be able to access the Core-aeration page from both a button and by making the words core-aeration in the services page a link.
Again thanks for all the help. What I have edited so far looks great and I can't wait to get it on the web soon.

Hi Turfsurfer,

You can download the web pages here.

View the page you need and save it.

Sure this is possible. You can edit the pages any way you see fit. You just have to edit the html code.

Let me know if this helps.

Show us the link to your site when you are done.

Gopher, thank you, I downloaded the Welcome page and now I can edit it. Trying to figure what I did wrong with the HTML coding for the buttons. When I finished, the button for core-aeration looked different( font was different, had a small "x"box and the page heading did not change. All I did was go into the code and change every word "testimonials" to "core-aeration". Should this be a long involved process or was I close with what I did? As soon as I figure it out, I'll have my site up that day.
Also, I like the idea of having a page where a potential customer can submit their address and request an estimate by hitting a "submit" button. Where does this request go? I saw an example powered by your "lawnmail". How can I do something like this on my site?

After a little more looking, I see that you have to have gopher software to run lawnmail. For sites that just have the estimate form with a "submit" button at the bottom, do they just code that button somehow to link to their e-mail?
Lawnmail aside, I looked at the features of your Gopher software and am definately interested in downloading the "plus" trial version to play around with during the offseason. I currently use Quickbooks and I see the "plus" is compatible. Does this mean that I won't have to enter invoicing and receivables in both? For instance, if I bill out of Gopher, does the info automatically get transferred to QB? I like the financial reports that I get from QB and do not want to make double entries for both softwares. I do like alot of the features in Gopher, looking forward to using the trial and possibly buying before March hits.

Hi turfsurfer,

Do you want to post your web address and then we can check it out? If you are still having coding problems maybe we can see something that isn't right.
Yes Lawnmail needs Gopher because it accesses your customer database allowing your customers to review their data online.

You would enter your data in Gopher and can export that data to QB. So you would only enter the data once.

Thanks, I have not published the site to the web yet, so you won't be able to look at it. I'll work on it some more and if I just can't figure it out, I'll publish it uncompleted and let you look at it. Thank again for the help.

Blades, sorry it took so long to respond. I reccomend the coffeecup software to help with your site. I have taught myself alot over the last couple weeks but admit I still have alot to learn. My website is basically done but I'm having to put out alot of fires. Right now I'm dealing with the fact that none of the graphics and images seem to have been uploaded correctly. It all looks fine on when looking at it through the windows explorer files on my hard-drive, but I must have made some kind of mistake with the links because there are no images on the website, just placeholders. I'm still learning the difference between when to use "href" and when to use "src" to refer to images. When it's done I think it will be a great site and gophers template definately helped alot as a base document. I would probably be done right now but I got ambitious and expanded the basic template quite a bit. Good luck with your site.
