Welcome to the Virtual Info template, designed with simplicity and flexibility in mind.

The template comes with full instructions with all the information for font sizes colors etc.

This is where you could put a short introduction to your site or replace this blurb with a photo.

These two cells could be merged so the text goes right across the page as below.


Include Pages
This template uses Frontpage Include components for all the recurring elements - it does NOT use a Frontpage theme or navigation. The main reasons for this are to keep graphics to a minimum, allow simple site wide changes and it can be changed in Frontpage but the server doesn't need to have the extensions installed.

There are full instructions included with the template download on how to make the changes, as well as information of the fonts and sizes used for the graphics.

Customization
You can probably make all the changes you need to this template yourself but if you require any custom work or professional help, please contact Andy at andy@thetemplatestore.com and he'll send you a quote for the work you require.
