That is a really good question. I haven't used them so I have no experience with revising them. Anyone using Profit Maker sites care to share?

I see that they are php files with html code within, so I imagine that it is not too complicated. If no one posts on this, and if you are up to it, we could go through the process as a test case and those that are interested can follow along too.

Suggestions anyone?

Everyone in here was a newbie once, and we know exactly how you are feeling because we have been right there in your shoes. Hmmm. Well, maybe not really in 'your' shoes but you know what I mean right? GRINS.

Let me have a quick look the sites. I'll look up he instructions, and then upload one to a domain where we can figure it out. OK?

Unless someone comes forward with the info in the meantime, we can hack away at it . . . how hard can it be?

OK. It has been a long time I had to fiddle with anything else other than Wordpress, so my html site code is a bit rusty.

Have you uploaded to your domain yet? In fact how far are you in the process? Have you revised your "config" file yet?

Adding more articles is going to be as easy as copy and pasting a new article into an article template. Then revise the "meta" tags and add a little bit of code and you're set.

Add the article link into the site map page and upload both the new article page and the new site map page to your site.

We can go through it together but I need to know how far in the process you are. And . . . do you have some articles you can use?

It is easier than I thought. I would still like it if someone more experienced with "Profit Maker" sites could shed some light on this.

Al

P.S. -- I have placed a "goal setting" site (Profit Maker) on http://rggpublishing.com for demo.

Thanks for the help and the offer for html help.

Okay so far I have the site up at backgroundcheckhowto.helppeoplehub.info/ . I tried to resize the header I made, but for some reason it isn't showing resized. I redid it twice. It is showing the new file as being used. That's a problem I'll work with later. It is the first time I used FTP. I normally use file manager, but that would have taken all week to use.

So that's where I am. I don't understand what you're trying to tell me to do to get new content up. Can you dumb it down for me please?

Again, thank you so much for your help.

OK. I'm back . . . here's some information on revising the articles on your site already. You just have to go into your article pages in your site folder and pick out the one's you want to edit. Open them up in notepad, find the article content and change what you want , then upload the revised page to your site.

Something like this . . . (keeping in mind that there may be a better way out there, but at least I know that this works)

This was definitely a learning experience to say the least . . . OK. Here we go . . . at least you'll have some information to start with.

By the way, I always save the originals so that if I make a mistake I can always go back and start over without having ruined the original pages by screwing something up. Make a duplicate copy of your site folder and save the original as "site_original" and revise and work your duplicates only.
--------------------------------------
Open your site folder.

Pick out an article that you want to edit and open it up.

You will see php and html codes. Leave it alone, do not change anything.

Scroll down until you find the Article Start Note.

Select the text you want until you arrive at the Article End Note.

Right click and copy the text selected to your clipboard.

Open up notepad or preferably Open Office Writer if you have it, and Paste the article on the blank page.

Revise the article as you want and save the document.

Select all of the now revised article and copy it to your clipboard.

Go back to your still open article that you chose earlier for revision and paste the revised text into the area the previous article occupied. (Between the Article Start and Article End Notes)

Save the new revised page, check to see that you have placed it between the 'Article Start and Article End' notes, and upload it to your site.

Check your site page to see if the revision shows up on your site properly.

Here's a crude soundless screen capture I made. So sorry, it is my first stab at it! Well, we all have to start somewhere, right? -- Quote from: humanecats on July 11, 2012, 12:50:28 PM

I'm sure that you will have questions but this is just one way to revise an article already in your folder. There are many.

Adding articles is simple also, but we'll get to that once we get past this one . . .

Thank you. I've changed a few, enough to make sure I can do it and will remember how. That was easy enough, thanks to your great instructions and video.

It was brought to my attention that once you know what you are looking for, you can also revise these right on your website through your file manager in cPanel.

Also, you can skip a step if you right click on the article in your computer file folder, and open it up with the html editor of your choice and revise it from there without copying to a notepad file.

Have you found out how to add articles to your site at all or should we discuss that next?

Changing the articles the way you showed me is easy enough. I'll just stick to that.

Yes,please if you can tell me how to add new content.

Thank you again for all your help.

You are very welcome . . .  but this helps me too.

OK. Let's see if I did this right. Here we go.

Adding New Articles

Take any article page in your website folder and open it in notepad. Then click on "Save as" to copy the article. And here you will be entering the new article title with no spaces, but enter underscores between each word in the title.

The easiest way to do this is to copy an article page in it's entirety and save it as "template" in your site folder. Change it to a generic one size fits all template that you can copy and paste new article information over and over. (This step is not necessary but I find that it is easier for me.)

Open your new "template" article and change the highlighted areas to 'generic' copy. Careful not remove any quotations marks from the lines as then they will not work. Also, do not change any of the "php" coding or it will break. Revise the changes you want only.

Example:

<TITLE>Weight Loss Goals</TITLE>
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<meta http-equiv="pics-label" content='(pics-1.1 "http://www.icra.org/ratingsv02.html" comment "Single file EN v2.0" l gen true for "<?php echo WEBSITE_NAME; ?>" r (nz 1 vz 1 lz 1 oz 1 cz 1) "http://www.rsac.org/ratingsv01.html" l gen true for "<?php echo WEBSITE_NAME; ?>" r (n 0 s 0 v 0 l 0))'>
<META content=English name=LANGUAGE>
<META content="Copyright 2009 <?php echo WEBSITE_NAME; ?>" name=COPYRIGHT>
<META content="index,follow" name=ROBOTS>
<META content="2 days" name=REVISIT-AFTER>
<META content="Weight Loss Goals" name=DESCRIPTION>
<META content="Weight Loss Goals, Lose Weight Goal" name=KEYWORDS>


-- To --

<TITLE>Article Title</TITLE>
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<meta http-equiv="pics-label" content='(pics-1.1 "http://www.icra.org/ratingsv02.html" comment "Single file EN v2.0" l gen true for "<?php echo WEBSITE_NAME; ?>" r (nz 1 vz 1 lz 1 oz 1 cz 1) "http://www.rsac.org/ratingsv01.html" l gen true for "<?php echo WEBSITE_NAME; ?>" r (n 0 s 0 v 0 l 0))'>
<META content=English name=LANGUAGE>
<META content="Copyright 2012 <?php echo WEBSITE_NAME; ?>" name=COPYRIGHT>
<META content="index,follow" name=ROBOTS>
<META content="2 days" name=REVISIT-AFTER>
<META content="article description" name=DESCRIPTION>
<META content="article keywords" name=KEYWORDS>



The next change is in the article title and article content. You will know how to revise this already.

<H1>Article Title</H1>
       <?php include("includes/adsenseblock.txt"); ?>
      <?php include("includes/intro.txt"); ?>
       <!-- Article BEGIN --- <P>
   New Article content
                <P><!-- Article END -->


You want each page to be specifically about your chosen topic, so it would be a good idea to mix it up a bit in the related articles section on your new articles pages. And it will help give you more original content for the search engines. Trust me, most people will not take it this far.

Towards the bottom of the page you will find the area where the Related Articles Links are located. As you begin to add more pages you might want to revise these links to include new "more relevant" article descriptions and links depending on the articles you add.

If you made a separate template including all of the Related Articles Links in a separate area of your site folder, it would be easy to copy and paste in whichever articles were most relevant to each other. It also allows people to get around your site easier for more information.

You might even think of adding two more relevant article links to make 6 per page instead of 4 to have more original content that no one else has. Or, you can get rid of the descriptions and just place links in this section, the changes you can make are wide open, to separate yourself from the pack.

The "Related Article Sections look like these and will be found at the bottom of all article pages.

OK. We're almost there. Next the new article link has to be added to the "Site Map" page. That is pretty straight forward.

Upload your new article and new site map to your website and check to make sure that it worked OK.

That should do it. If you have any questions, we'll be right here.

Hi Mike. Thanks for the compliments. And I do hope that this helps some others out.

I had to go through this myself so this really helped me a lot too. They are actually very good looking sites, nice and clean, and easy to revise for originality.
