Why can I not create buttons/logos/menus/text boxes larger than a certain size?
Only subscribed users may make unlimited use of the web design generators (buttons, logos, menus, text boxes).
I created an oval or pill shaped button, but there's white corners around it and my web page's background is of a different color!
If you know the hex value of the web page's background color, enter it in the grey box that asks for the "background color". For instance, enter 000000 (six zeros) to make the button's corners black. Alternatively, you can simply select the 'Transparent' option in the Background Color field to eliminate the problem.
I created a button/logo/menu/text box and linked to the picture, but now it's gone!
How do I put the button/logo/menu/text box into my web page?
When generating it, follow the "Instructions" section near the bottom of the screen.
I really like one of the fonts in the web design generators, where can I find it?
Email us if you wish to have one of these fonts and we will send it to you.
Are these buttons/logos/menus/text boxes really free for me to use as I like?
Yes, they are yours to keep and use however you like. No questions asked.
I tried to paste an animated logo into Dreamweaver, but I can't see it!
Because the logo is flash-based, you may not be able to see it in the Dreamweaver application itself. But once the web page is online, you will be able to see the logo in your web browser.
I created a menu and pasted it into my web page, but it's aligned incorrectly.
When generating the menu, look for the "Menu Alignment on Page" option in the section labeled "Other".
How do I link back to GRSites.com?
I put a GRSites design element in my web page, but it looks completely wrong!?
Make sure all your HTML files start with the following:
 
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
 
This line should come even before the first tag.
If I subscribe and save buttons/logos/menus/templates in my GRSites Folder, will I have to pay to view or access them?
No, the subscription enables you to create new buttons, logos, menus and templates. But you may store these in your GRSites Folder indefinitely, for free. You can link to them from your web sites for as long as you need to, whether you are a subscriber or not.
I purchased a subscription, but still don't have full access!
I need a printable receipt for my purchase.
Email us and we will send it to you right away.
What are GRSites Folders?
A GRSites Folder is personal web space on the GRSites servers in which to store the buttons, logos, menus and text boxes that you've created, as well as customized textures and more. That way, you can simply paste the provided HTML code to display your graphics in your web pages. The content of the folder is yours and can be used in your web sites free whether you are a subscriber or not!
How much space am I given?
there are no space limits. You can store as much as you want!
Are there bandwidth limits?
No, there are none.
How long will my graphics be stored?
For as long as you wish, whether you are subscribed or not. Free!
How do I put graphics in my folder?
After creating a button, logo, menu, texture or text box, you will be given the option to place it in your folder in the grey button bar right above it.

When browsing textures, click on a texture to preview it and you will also be given the option to put it in your folder. This is most useful to store customized textures whose color you have changed, since these custom textures are normally only stored on GRSites.com temporarily. Put them in your own GRSites Folder and you keep them online indefinitely!

Can I update/modify items in my folder? Will I have to update the HTML code in my web pages?
Items saved in your folder can be modified and saved back (an active subscription may be required). If you pasted the new-style javascript code to display the item in your pages, then you will be able to modify the item without updating your pages. The change will be reflected in your web pages immediately. The javascript code will look something like this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://static1.grsites.com/user/folders/gabrielross/t1125/1349131.js"></script>

If you are using the raw HTML code, then you will most likely have to update it in your web pages to see the change.

  • How do I put a background texture in my eBay listings?
    I changed the color/brightness of one of the textures in the archive and linked to the picture, but now the texture is gone!
    I would like to use one of these textures in Photoshop, but I only get a small square. How can I get the texture to tile and fill up the whole image?
    The way to do it in Photoshop is to first save the texture you're going to use in PSD photoshop format. Just open the background texture that you have saved on your hard disk and save it as Photoshop (*PSD; *.PDD). Then, starting from an empty image, go to the Filter menu, select Texture, then Texturizer. From the "Texture:" field, select "Load Texture..." and pick the PSD version of your backround texture.
    Do you have higher resolution versions of these images?
    No. Unfortunately, the images you see online are the only ones available.
    I like these textures very much. Can I download them all in a ZIP file?
    Yes, click here to download ALL the resources on GRSites.com in zip files.
    How do I include a texture from this archive into my web page?
    Are these background textures really free for me to use as I like?
    They are freeware. They were not created by us, but were obtained from various sources on the Internet that referred to them as freely distributable. They can be used freely for use in web pages and so on, but some of the authors of these graphics might not approve of seeing them used for commercial purposes (e.g. making them part of a commercial software package.)
    How do I use these fonts in my Windows applications like Word?
    You must download the font's TTF file and save it in the C:\WINDOWS\FONTS directory. That will install the font and make it available to all your applications.

    Are these sounds really free for me to use as I like?
    use the following HTML tag:

    <EMBED SRC="sound.wav" WIDTH=344 HEIGHT=60 AUTOLOAD=TRUE AUTOSTART=false VOLUME=100 CONTROLS=Console>

    Replace "sound.wav" with the URL of the sound file on your web server. This tag will create a Windows Media Player box in the web page with Play/Stop/Volume buttons like the one below:

    <EMBED SRC="/sounds/18791905/aircraft/aircraft001.wav" WIDTH=344 HEIGHT=60 AUTOLOAD=TRUE AUTOSTART=false VOLUME=100 CONTROLS=Console>

    To have the sound play automatically, without showing a Media Player box, use the following tag:

    <EMBED SRC="sound.wav" WIDTH=0 HEIGHT=0 AUTOLOAD=TRUE AUTOSTART=false VOLUME=100 CONTROLS=Console>

    I like these sounds very much. Can I download them all in a ZIP file?
    Yes, click here to download ALL the resources on GRSites.com in zip files.
