AUCTION TEMPLATE INSTRUCTIONS
You do not need any html knowledge to use any
template from Justonemoreanimation. I have created this step by step
instructions with actual photos of each step to better assist you in
using your template for the first time. If you run into ANY
problems, don't fret. Every template from Justonemoreanimation
always comes with 100% support guaranteed and always FREE. Just send
me an email and within 24 hours I will respond. Now, lets get to
learning how to use your new template.
For a printer friendly version without any images,
First, you will receive your template html
code in one of three ways from Justonemoreanimation. An example of
how your template codes will look when received on a WordPad is show
in the picture below.
* Saved on a WordPad document
* Saved on a Notepad document
* Copied direct from the justonemoreanimation website
Let's start with a
brand new listing:
Select your category for you
listing. Note in the picture below. I have circled the "sell with a
template". This can confuse many new sellers. This is not referring
to your new template. This is an option ebay gives you to save a
certain amount of listings you have already created. When you are
finished with your listing, Ebay will ask you if you want to save
that listing as a template. It is actually saving your listing,
referring to it as a template. This is an easy way to list other
items using the same layout. Everything will be saved and all you
have to do is make any changes within the actual listings. The
Option circled below is where you would pick a specific listing you
have saved as a "template".
Once you get your category picked
you will be taken to the next page. Fill out all your listing
information (title, subtitle, condition, ect.)until you get to the
part to upload your 1 FREE listing photo. This is the photo that
shows next to your listings in the eBay search. This picture will
not be in your template. We will get to that part in a bit.
Remember, Your first picture is
free. If you upload more pictures this way, Ebay will charge you a
fee for every extra picture you upload after the first. You will
soon learn how to showcase all your photos inside your template,
After you have uploaded your one
picture, you will be ready to insert your new template. First, click
on the html tab, shown in picture below. If there is anything
already typed inside the text box you will want to erase it. You
want to start with a clean slate. Next, go to your new template html
code. Highlight the entire code, right click and click on copy.
Click once anywhere inside the HTML text box for your listing. Right
click and click on paste. This should have pasted your entire html
code into the text area as shown in the second picture below.
Now that you have pasted the html
code for your template into the description area, we are going to
insert your FREE listing photos inside the template. Most people use
to store their pictures. This is what gives the picture a url
address to use in your templates. They are completely free and
pretty easy to use. In the html code for your template there are 3
codes to display 3 pictures. If you received your template code on a
WordPad document, these 3 spots will be highlighted in
RED in the WordPad document so you can
easily find them. You can also paste your picture url addresses
right in the WordPad document first, then copy the entire code and
paste into the HTML text box of your listing.
<p align="center"><img src="ADD
YOUR PHOTO ADDRESS HERE"></p>
If you need more than 3 pictures
you can copy the code above and paste directly underneath the the
last picture code in your template. NOTE: The <p align at the begin
with the </p> at the end is what centers your photos. If you wanted
them aligned left or to the right, you can just change the CENTER to
left or right. You can also pre-size your pictures as well. Simply
add a width to your picture. NOTE: I recommend not adding a height.
By just adding the width will cause the computer to automatically
adjust the height to the proper size for your picture without
causing any distortions.
<p align="center"><img src="ADD
YOUR PHOTO ADDRESS HERE" width="500"></p>
I recommend using pictures no
larger than 600 pixels in width for templates from
justonemoreanimation. To much larger can cause the template itself
to become distorted. This is because most templates created by
justonemoreanimation are done at a total template width of 1000
pixels to prevent your viewers from having to scroll left and right
to see your entire listing, whether you have your store categories
displayed in your listings or not.
Once you are in your photobucket
account, your page will look similar to the picture below. All new
accounts begin with 4 given addressed under each photo uploaded.
In your account you are going to
see 4 address displayed under each of your photos. Mine only shows 2
as I have set my account up that way. You are only going to need one
code. The direct link code only. First, upload your image to your
account. Click the blue button to locate your image on your
computer. After your image has uploaded to your account, copy the
"direct link" address given under your picture.
Now you can go back to the html code for your
template in your Ebay listing format or on your word-pad. Locate the
picture code: <img src="add your photo address here"> In-between the
2 quotation marks you want to highlight the add your photo address
here by dragging your mouse over the entire sentence. Once it is
highlighted you can hit your delete button on your keyboard to erase
my text, while your cursor is still in-between the 2 quotation marks
you can right click and click on paste to paste your image direct
link url address into the code. Now you can do this for every
picture you want to display in your template. Once you have all your
pictures pasted into the html part you click the standard view as
shown in the picture to the below. Once in the standard view, you
can easily add all your information for your listing.
If you didn't need all three
picture codes, once you click over to the standard view you will see
little boxes with little red X's in them. This is where the picture
codes are that you didn't use. Click once on the little box (this
also works with removing any image in your template). This will
bring up little boxes on each corner and side (see picture below).
To remove that image just hit your delete button on your keyboard
once. You can also adjust the size of your image by taking your
mouse and grabbing one of the little square boxes, holding and
dragging it to the size you wish.
Now you can erase my text and add
all yours. You can use the selections above (shown in picture to
below) to align, resize, and color your text. Every template sold
from Justonemoreanimation comes complete with 100% support
guaranteed and always free so if you run into any problems with your
template just send me an email.
