Required Software

Text Editor

To modify this product you will require a text editor. There are a wide range of softwares out there that will do the trick but we would recommend Sumblime Text or Brackets.

Installation

Follow the steps below to setup your site template:

1. Unzip the downloaded package and open the /HTML folder to find all the template files. You will need to upload these files to your hosting web server using FTP in order to use it on your website.

FTP Client

To publish your website you will need an FTP client which is a software that will allow you to connect to and upload the HTML files to your server. We would recommend using something like FileZilla.

Connect Using FTP

In order to connect to your server using an FTP client you’ll need the following information:

  • Host URL
  • Username
  • Password

Most hosts create an FTP account for you and commonly send out the above details in the welcome email when you sign up for a hosting plan. Others, require you to create an FTP account through your cPanel. If you have never set up an FTP account before, your host should be able to do this for you and answer any questions you may have.

Connecting using FTP

Below is an example of the FileZilla interface:

2. Below is the folder structure and needs to be uploaded to your website root directory:

  • HTML/css. – Stylesheet files
  • HTML/img. – Image files
  • HTML/js. – Javacript files

3. You should upload all or specific HTML files as per your need.
4. You’re now good to go..! Start adding your content/images and generate your beautiful brand new website for your awesome users.

Edit Pages

Logo

We recommend using text format

<a href="index.html" class="logo"><b>fo</b><i>lish.</i></a>

Background screen

Backgound screen has a structure

<div class="bg-image">
    <picture class="picture image-cover">
        <source type="image/webp" srcset="img/main-img-2.webp" class="">
        <source type="image/jpeg" srcset="img/main-img-2.jpg">
        <img src="img/main-img-2.jpg" alt="">
    </picture>
</div>

The main page uses a slider as a background:

<div class="bg-image">
    <div class="bg-image-slider" id="js-bg-image-slider">
        <div class="slide">
            <picture class="picture image-cover">
                <source type="image/webp" srcset="img/main-img.webp" class="">
                <source type="image/jpeg" srcset="img/main-img.jpg">
                <img src="img/main-img.jpg" alt="">
            </picture>
        </div>
        <div class="slide">
            <picture class="picture image-cover">
                <source type="image/webp" srcset="img/main-img-2.webp" class="">
                <source type="image/jpeg" srcset="img/main-img-2.jpg">
                <img src="img/main-img-2.jpg" alt="">
            </picture>
        </div>
        <div class="slide">
            <picture class="picture image-cover">
                <source type="image/webp" srcset="img/main-img-3.webp" class="">
                <source type="image/jpeg" srcset="img/main-img-3.jpg">
                <img src="img/main-img-3.jpg" alt="">
            </picture>
        </div>
    </div>
</div>

Posts

Posts have a non-standard grid:

<div class="posts-list">
    <a href="collection-single.html" class="post-item">
        <div class="post-image">
            ...
        </div>
        <div class="post-item-head">
            ...
        </div>
        <div class="post-item-body">
            ...
        </div>
    </a>
    <a href="collection-single.html" class="post-item">
        <div class="post-image">
            ...
        </div>
        <div class="post-item-head">
            ...
        </div>
        <div class="post-item-body">
            ...
        </div>
    </a>
</div>

Posts without images must have “without-img” class.

Single Page

The main content of the post is pictures:

Each block with pictures has a structure:

<div class="collections-items first-large">
    <a href="#" class="collections-item">
        <div class="collections-item-image">
            <picture class="picture image-cover">
                <source type="image/webp" srcset="img/single-1.webp" class="">
                <source type="image/jpeg" srcset="img/single-1.jpg">
                <img src="img/single-1.jpg" alt="">
            </picture>
        </div>
        <div class="collections-item-info">
            <div class="_subtitle">Clothes</div>
            <h3 class="_title">Chopper and blouse</h3>
        </div>
    </a>
    <div class="collections-item">
        <div class="collections-item-image">
            <picture class="picture image-cover">
                <source type="image/webp" srcset="img/single-2.webp" class="">
                <source type="image/jpeg" srcset="img/single-2.jpg">
                <img src="img/single-2.jpg" alt="">
            </picture>
        </div>
    </div>
</div>

And each div.collections-items has unique class that is responsible for rendering the mesh. It can be such as first-large, first-small, fullwidth and slider

<div class="gallery-items">
    <a class="gallery-item instagram-item">

        </div>
        <div class="gallery-item-info">
            <p>
                ...
            </p>
        </div>
    </a>
    <a class="gallery-item instagram-item">

                Would you like to contact us? Fill out the form and we will definitely respond to you
            </h2>
            <form class="form">
                <div class="input-wrap">
                    <input type="text" class="input" placeholder="Name">
                </div>
                <div class="input-wrap">
                    <input type="tel" class="input" placeholder="Phone">
                </div>
                <div class="input-wrap fullwidth">
                    <textarea class="input textarea" placeholder="Message"></textarea>
                </div>
                <button class="btn submit-btn js-form-success-status">
                    <span>Send Message</span>
                </button>
            </form>
        </div>
    </div>
</section>

Submit or error messages are at the bottom of the page:

<div class="bottom-message success-message" id="success-message">
    <span>
        Thanks! Your message has been sent
    </span>
</div>

<div class="bottom-message error-message" id="error-message">
    <span>
        Error message!
    </span>
