    David Shultz said Hi, Gerald. Thanks for your prompt response. Yes, I saw the area where I can upload photos. I was considering that as a fallback position, but was hoping I could use our template with images and style sheets.

    I'll do a little more research before I decide.


    David Shultz also wrote The support section says: "if you link to images, style sheets or other files in your templates then they will need to be hosted under HTTPS for the secure pages"

    All that means is that you need to replace "http://" with "https://" wherever you have secure pages (pages that display a lock icon). Of course, for this to work, you have to have bought an SSL (Secure Server Layer) certificate from your website host (or GoDaddy or one of the other providers).

    Submitting the information to get that certificate, can be a little tricky if you're not up on your computer lingo, but your web host or the person you're buying it from should be able to provide you with detailed, step-by-step instructions.

    As for using your own template with images and style sheets, if you figure out how to do that, please let me know by posting here. I'm trying to figure that one out myself.

    Thanks.
