|The IRM.Net is configurable and customizable to a great degree. The
documentation contained below is designed to be used by web programmers to
configure the IRM.Net. The documentation will be self explanatory to a web
programmer. Programmer support is not provided for integrating the IRM.Net. If
you are not a web programmer, or you have not hired a web programmer and you
would like to customize the IRM.Net, please contact
Blizzard Internet Marketing,
our preferred provider for IRM.Net configuration.
Using Themes in IRM.Net
The IRM.Net uses themes (a combination of a skin and a style sheet) to change the colors, font face, font size on all
pages. Themes can be complicated to the average web user and should be
maintained by a qualified web designer familiar with themes in order to match
the IRM.Net pages with unique marketing sites.
- Skins: An element of a graphical user interface that can be
changed to alter the look of the interface without affecting its functionality.
Skins are often used to change the look and feel of a Web browser, altering the
appearance and/or location of buttons, providing background images or borders
that did not originally come with the browser, changing the colors and/or other
graphic elements, or even changing the shape of the browser window. In
some skins, the color and graphical images associated with the software / pages
can be changed. In other cases, the entire user interface can be changed.
- Themes: Group of files (CSS, Skins, Images) that define the
look-and-feel of Web Pages. Themes
can get very complex and a working knowledge of HTML and web design is
essential. It is best to have the web designer of your marketing site help with
themes. RDP Support cannot help with the mechanics of theme changes.
