Also available are the newest addition of Expression Web Site Templates. A complete website available in the form of a Personal Web Package.

Each of these Expression Web templates is css based using no tables for layout. These EW templates are written with an XHTML transitional doctype and have an external stylesheet. You are welcome to use them as a basis for site layout. Changes to colors, font families, font sizes and such should be made within the external stylesheet. The masthead is a graphic image. Depending on MY time constraints, I will be happy to add a site title for you. The templates are in the form of a personal web package, which includes the DWT, and all supporting files, folders and graphics. The images in the content area are strictly to show you how they would look when a 1px black border and/or drop shadow is added.

The Expression Web template layouts are based on an original layout created at my favorite site Inknoise Layout-o-Matic, which unfortunately is no longer functioning. Some of the layouts are based on those available from Eric Meyer's CSS Sculptor for Expression Web. I use this Color Palette Creator to come up with the colors I use.

Clicking on the link under the template will take you to the full size template where you can download the Personal Web Package and import it into your newly created web.

These are basic templates. There are other styles you will need to add as you go along. Google is your friend. Learn to use it to find style info you might need. There are many resources for learning CSS. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask. Investigate both the code and the style sheet. Make changes so you understand how the style sheet and coding relate to each other.

Contact Form

If you are interested in adding a contact form to any of these templates packages, you can check out my Sample Contact Form package. The package (in zipped format) contains a contact form that you can edit with detailed instructions on what you need to edit to make it work on YOUR site. The form makes use of James Huggins' email form script which does require support for php5 on your hosting site.

Menus

If you want to add a fancy menu using CSS styling, check out the vertical and horizontal menus offered by Dynamic Drive.  The layouts are free for your personal websites. Credit links must remain. Additional menu sources include:

  • 13 Styles offers cross browser/lightweight menu’s that offer a variety of styles ranging from simple to elegant to fun.
  • CSS Menumaker offers more menu’s that are utilizing a more graphic flair.
  • CSS Play is the perverbial “Mother-Load” of every configuration imaginable… literally.
  • CSS Express Drop-Down Menus - one of my favorites.
  • Advanced CSS Drop Down Menu - Expression Web is an Expression Web add-on that completely automates the process of creating and managing professional horizontal and vertical CSS drop down menus and is brought to you by Ajatix. This is a commercial program.
  • Pure CSS Menu - Expression Web is another product also available from Ajatix. This is also a commercial product.
