Customized diplomas and WEB results

Diplomas and the WEB result are build using HTML. This allows the user to freely build and customize the layouts of the diplomas and the uploaded LiveTiming and Result WEB pages. Actual the provided layouts should only be taken as samples. Please feel free to customize them anyway you like. It is easier than you think.

You can use any editor, provided that you have a basic understanding of the HTML involved, or alternatively you can use an editor that does support HTML. I.E. Microsoft Word might be used to edit the pages, provided you save the data in HTML format.

 
LapMaster used HTML models stored in the “C:\LapMaster\Multimedia” folder, but distributed in the “C:\LapMaster\Multimedia\Factory” folder.  This means that LapMaster first look for your local version in the MultiMedia folder, and if not yet there copies the distribution versions from the Multimedia\Factory folder. In this way you possibly modified models will not be overwritten by a LapMaster upgrade.

 

These models contain some replaceable parameters in the style [NAME], which will be modified by LapMaster before being used as the actual HTML file.
