LinkCodeGenerator has been designed to be totally configurable and adaptable.

This is why we have a HTML template driven design, that way you simply

edit standard HTML pages to change the look and feel of our software.

You can edit the template files using a WYSIWYG HTML editor such as DreamWeaver

or AceExpert. You can also edit this file as Raw HTML using a text editor.

NOTE:- FrontPage and other editors change the layout of the HTML, this

causes serious problems with the templates. If you are using FrontPage

then please consult the help file to disable the HTML layout changes.

can dramatically affect the working of this software. When editing the templates
