Whichever template you use will need to have some of the placeholder text replaced with your own fixed content to appear on each page.
- Replacing Foreground Images
The template you start with may also have some images that need to be replaced.
- Replacing Background Images
Updating backgrounds in your template requires a different approach from that for foreground images.
- Creating Pages from your Template
Once you have built your page template it is time to start creating web pages.
- Title and Meta Data
While these don't show in the page they are important for describing what your page is about.
- Adding lists and Links
Not everything in your content will be headings and paragraphs of plain text.
- Adding Images
You probably already have some images as part of your page template but on some pages you will want to add images specific to that page.

Once you have the pages ready on your computer you need to upload them to your site.
