Stylesheet Information:

This template is powered in part by CSS (cascading style sheets). In order for this template to display correctly when you upload it to your own server, you MUST make sure that you keep the template in the same relative location as it is when the zip file is sent to you (ie if the stylesheet is located in the same folder, than you need to keep it this way when you upload your set).

If you need to change the location of the stylesheet, be sure to change the link to it in your document(s). The link is located in the <head> tags and should look like this:

<link rel="stylesheet" src="{stylesheet name}.css" type="text/css">

The location of the stylesheet is contained within the -> src="{stylesheet name}.css" <- part of the link. So, if for example, you create a new directory WITHIN the directory that your actual page is sitting in (ie if your page was sitting in "http://www.yoursitename.com/blog" and you created a folder located at "http://www.yoursitename.com/blog/details") then you would change the link to look like this:

<link rel="stylesheet" src="details/{stylesheet name}.css" type="text/css">
