Hi
I want to make some of my website designs available for free on my website. Does anyone know what software or script (?) I would need to get and install so I can display a "demo" of the templates? I want the visitor to be able to double click on a thumbnail picture of the template and it will pop open so the person can decide whether or not they want to download the files.

Thank you in advance :)

Why not just have a mock-up of the layout loaded on a page on your site? That way users can view the template by clicking a normal link and then you can zip the files and link to that if they want to download.

Alternatively use thickbox or lightbox to show a screen shot of the site.

Hope this helps

What about the templates we have here on this site. Do they do somewhat what you're looking for?

I did look at the templates on monstertemplates.com and that's why I'm asking the question.

I have many websites that I've made from dreamweaver and I know those files but I don't know how to take those files and display them in a "demo" format. That's why I'm asking the question. So if you don't know, then you didn't need to reply to my question. Thanks for nothing.
