I’m frustrated

How do I make my own template?

Would like to make my own template and add it to the DL2 templates folder or edit an existing template, what program is needed to open and edit the existing templates?

  • This is one of those things where you need to know HTML/CSS in order to modify your templates. If you publish your library to a folder, then open the folder in an editor (say, Coda), you'll be able to change how your library is published.

    I'm going to say right now, however, that it's not easy and you really need to know what you're doing or it will turn out to be a very frustrating experience.

    If anyone has modified and published their library, I'd be curious to see the final product.

    Thanks for warning us about the difficulty! The obvious follow-up question is when DL is going to have more flexibility in web export. Is it a "Wait for version 3 in 3 years' time" kind of thing, or a "We're working on it now and hope to have it to you within a few months" kind of thing, or a "DL isn't really about that flexible web export" kind of thing, or ...... If the first or the last of these, we'll know that we need to look for a solution elsewhere.
    For that matter, perhaps Delicious Monster could actually recommend a tool that would help us create websites with our book details?
