Free Auction Templates: How to Set Your Border Color With FOAM
If you have not heard of Foamtemplates.com yet, home of the "Free Online Auction Maker", now is a good time to get your feet
wet. I am going to show you how to use FOAMTemplates.com to make great looking auction templates for HTML compatible websites for free!
The first screen you are going to see after clicking the "Free Template Generator" link on the homepage of foamtemplates.com, is
going to be the preview screen. This will always display what you have so far. You can come back to this screen at any time to see
what your auction is going to look like after you post the code to an eBay auction. To start designing your template, click the Edit Design button above your auction.
After you click the Edit Design button, you will first have the choice to load a pre-made template, or to make your own. If
you want to see a completed example you can go ahead and load a pre-made template, but for this article I want to start out
leaving the "Premade Designs" dropdown on Custom. Now scroll down until you see the "Border Appearance" heading. The three boxes
below this heading are what you use to change the box that surrounds your auction. It can be a color or a graphic of various
sizes. Most people use the buttons to the right of the boxes to set the graphics or colors, but you are welcome to type a custom
color code into the color box, or a web address into the graphic box. For this article, I want to keep it fairly simple, so click
the change button to the right of the "Border Color" text box.
Now to your right, a few new options will appear. You will see a drop down box with the default selection of "Reds", and a bunch
of color boxes under this dropdown. You are welcome to change the "Reds" dropdown to any color you choose. Once you select a color,
just click on a color box below and foam will auto maticly select that color for your template. After you select a color, a link
that says "Done! Preview Changes?" will appear. Just click this link and you should go back to the preview screen where your new color should be surrounding your auction!
If you are ready to paste your code into eBay, click the "View Html" button. Then you will click "Copy to Clipboard". Now your
code is ready to paste into eBay. Go ahead and start setting up your auction up to the Item Description screen. There should be
two tabs. One for "standard" and one for "Enter your own Html", we want to swich over to the "Enter your own HTML tab. Next click
your right mouse button, and select paste. That is it! You should be able to now preview your auction in eBay!
No knowledge of Html is necessary to design eBay auctions with FOAM. I hope you see how easy it is to design great looking
auctions for free! FOAM Premium has the same features are the Free version with the added ability to upload pictures from your
computer. With the free version you can insert pictures, but only if your pictures are already on the internet, like if you are using a hosting service like photo bucket.
Until next time, have fun!
