Gallery Express web publishing will create the sections of your web site described in What Gets Published? If you choose to integrate these sections with your current web site yourself, the following section describes the requirements:
The included web site template is based on a three frame site that will include a banner, a contents page and the main page. Once the pages created by Gallery Express have been generated by the web publishing wizard, you will need to:
Gallery Express provides form templates for both contact requests and e-commerce. These templates are available for both UNIX and Windows NT/2000 based sites and are designed to work with the style sheets used for the inventory pages for seamless integration with the rest of your web site. The templates are available for download on our website and can be modified by your web developer as needed.
The contact request forms allow a visitor to your site to submit a request for further information about an art work. A link to this form is provided on each art inventory page that is published with Gallery Express. The forms gather the personal information submitted by the visitor as well as the information about the art work that the visitor is requesting information for. On Windows NT/2000 servers, the forms generate a return email to the visitor advising them that the request for information has been received, as well as an email to your gallery that advises you of the request.
Note: If you are using MS FrontPage 2000 for your web site publishing, the directories and forms must be installed in the local web directory you have chosen for your web publishing. If you are using FTP to upload your website, install the directories and templates directly on your website.
In order for these templates to be used 'as is', it will be necessary to have certain email accounts established with your service provider (see Email Accounts for more information).
The form templates provided have been designed to work with the following email accounts:
Note that many internet service providers (ISPs) will require that the return email address for the request must be established on their server, or the messages may be treated as 'spam' and would be ignored.
