GP.com is a CMS, as such it sets out boundaries for where and how content can be displayed. You can edit the styles/colours/images used, by referring to the Admin pages.

I'm not saying this is the only site - but take a look at mine [masquerade.guildportal.com], you'll see it has custom borders/styles etc etc. most of this is done through CSS (I think the gp.com manual explains it, if not try a search here for CSS).

Strictly, you can't import a Dreamweaver template, but you can [with some effort] make a template based upon gp.com, then use that to develop and try out designs for your site - it's what I do


For more inspiration, take a look at other sites listed on the Spotlight list

I was in the same boat my friend. I wanted to create something that didn't have the same replicated feel of other guildportal sites. So, I did alot of the things that were mentioned above. I looked at other guildportal sites, read up on CSS coding and went to town. For someone that has little to no html or web design experience, I think ours came out pretty well.  Take a look [Eternal Twilight]. I hope it helps.

My issue is I know some CSS but I am more of designer than a programer and it would take me more time to pull items over into CSS than to just simply import it.
