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 .ico/.png – Favicon
  • HTML/img. — Image files
  • HTML/js. — Javacript files
  • HTML/video. – Video 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.

Logo Settings

The logo is set via img in the .logo block

<a href="/" class="logo">
    <img src="img/logo.svg" alt="">
</a>

Image & Favicon Settings

Image Settings

Meduza download package does not contain images which are there in our online demo. We are using placeholder images instead of real images. You will see the image code as mentioned below. You can replace placeholder image url with your image url like img/yourimage.jpg

<img src="image path" alt="image alt text">

Favicon Settings

To change the favicon image of your site, you need to load a new ICO image in a site root or to point out a new address of the image.

<!-- favicon -->
<link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="180x180" href="img/favicons/apple-touch-icon.png">
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="32x32" href="img/favicons/favicon-32x32.png">
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="16x16" href="img/favicons/favicon-16x16.png">
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="16x16" href="img/favicons/android-chrome-192x192.png">
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="16x16" href="img/favicons/android-chrome-512x512.png">
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="img/favicons/favicon-32x32.png" sizes="32x32">
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="16x16" href="img/favicons/favicon.ico">

Edit Pages

The Main Slider

Each slide is separated by a .slide class. The image of the slider is set in the .slide-img block of each slide through the style attribute (background-image). Also, the path to the picture should be written in the slide_right block in the data-slide attribute. For each slide, the background is indicated in the style attribute of each .slide block (via background-color).

Product Sliders

Product sliders on the main page. In each product slider on the main page, there should be an even number of slides.

The switching speed for each slider is indicated in the scripts.js file in the “speed” parameter of each slider. You can find the slider by the id of the element.

Catalog

The catalog can be displayed in 2, 3 or records in one row. For this, each page has its own classes two-items, three-items, four-items, respectively.

Each product has an element with the .to-cart class, which is used to add goods to the basket. To maintain validity, this element must be specified as a div.

Categories of products in the sidebar

If a category has subcategories, then inside. list-item should be a button <button class = «button»> </button>, and accordingly a list of subcategories via ul — li.

Product Page

The slider on the product page has two parts: navigation and demo. The number of elements in them, and the elements themselves, must coincide in these two parts: div # product-slider-wrap and div # product-slider-nav. 

In the element where the quantity of goods is indicated, a restriction of 3 characters is provided. This can be changed in the data-maxlenght attribute of each such element.

Filling in the data in the order

Fields can be full width and 50 percent. By default, fields are 50 percent wide. In order for the field to become full-width, for the parent element .input_wrap, you need to add the .fullwrap class.

General tips:

For images, the object-fit and object-position properties are used. For such images, for the parent element, you must specify the ie-img class (for proper display in IE)

In order to launch a window about successful sending, you need to use the success() function. You can change it in the scripts.js file on line 936.

The following script must be deleted during development (line 948):

$(".submit").not(".submit-search").on("click", function(e){
        e.preventDefault();
        success();
    });

Embed a video through an iframe by specifying a link to the video. Example:

<div class="video-block">
           <div class="video">
                     <iframe src=https://www.youtube.com/embed/XXXXXXXX?rel=0 allowfullscreen></iframe>
           </div>
 </div>
