      eMediaAdmin allows you to integrate your website's looks and feel by creating your own templates. These templates can contain HTML, JavaScript, Server Side Includes or practically any other format you choose. The HTML information that eMediaAdmin creates is inserted into your templates by using special tags. These tags (described below) can be placed where you desire within your templates. (It is case sensitive.)

You need at least four templates: archives, front page, section page and one for the article itself. You can also create more templates for separate sections. For example, if you have certain graphics and layout for your Business section which is different from your Sports section you can create different templates for each. (Or you can just use your default templates.)


The default template used for creating the article pages. You can also have separate templates for articles for different sections, for example: Sportsstory.tem, featuresstory.tem and basketballstory.tem.

First, on the created story webpage, eMediaAdmin inserts the headline into the HTML <TITLE> ... </TITLE> tags.

Then, to insert the story, you just use a single tag:

<!-- insert thestory -->

You can also insert the newly created URL with:

<!-- insert url -->

If you need specially created banner ads, you will need to modify the the banner ad routine in the software to your choosing and then use this tag:

<!-- insert ad -->

Note: the easiest way to have banner ads is to just place the appropriate HTML (or SSI information) directly into the template.

If you want to insert the name of the section (like Sports, Features, etc.), use:

<!-- insert sectionname -->

Plus, you can insert the current time and date with:

<!-- insert timedate -->


This is the template for your table of contents pages -- the start or front pages of your site.

To insert all the headlines, descriptions and links regardless of section and ordered from newest to oldest use:

<!-- insert all -->

insert all You can also organize the headlines/links by section categories, by using:

<!-- insert section -->

Where section is the name of the appropriate section.

You can insert the current time and date with:

<!-- insert timedate -->


The current headline listing (with description, timedate, and link) is inserted with:

<!-- insert info -->

You can also update the time and date of the last modification of this page with:

<!-- insert timedate -->


This is the default template for your categorized section pages. You can also have different templates for separate section pages by creating templates with the section name in the filename, such as: sports.tem, Business.tem and people.tem.

To insert the headlines and links, just use:

<!-- insert sectionlinks -->

You can also enter the section name (if you are just using the default template, for example), by:

<!-- insert sectionname -->

You can insert the current time and date with:

<!-- insert timedate -->
