View Full Version : Need Help - How to create a master page from an existing html template?

06 Dec 2010, 07:30 AM

I have downloaded a template package for my upcoming web site. That package has the following files - an index file, a scrip file and a style file.

How do I convert that index file into a master page so that I can maintain the same design and navigational elements in all other web pages?

You just need to determine what's content and what's "structure" (bg, header, nav, images you want to keep on every page, section divs,footer, and the like). How easily you can do this depends on what was used to build the template and what you're savy in. I'm a novice bare-bones notepad html and php coder, so if someone built the template with .asp, filled the whole thing with js, or used DOM object orientated code, I'd have a tough time with it.
