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 Coda 2.


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 as a background-image for .top_panel a

<div class="top_panel">
    <a href="/" class="logo"></a>

Note: Three images are used for the logo, one for the default logo (white logo / dark page) and second for alternate logo on a white page (black logo).

The third logo is used on the preloader page

Image & Favicon Settings

Image Settings

Ontold 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="shortcut icon" href="favicon.png" type="image/x-icon">
<link rel="icon" href="favicon.png" type="image/x-icon">

Changing Fonts

Ontold uses 1 fonts: Roboto from the Google Fonts Library.

<!-- Google font -->
<link href=",500,500i,700&display=swap&subset=cyrillic" rel="stylesheet">

Edit Pages

Home page Slider

Each slide has a class .slide. To add a slide, you need to add a new block with a class .slide. Each slide has a block with a class .bg_color, in which the attribute is registered with the background color. This color is used to darken the content of the slide.

For a slide with a video you need to use the class .video-slide. The video slide must have an attribute data-background, which contains the path to the image that is displayed on mobile devices when the video is disabled.

The image for the slide .slide is set through style=”background-image: url()”,where the url should specify the path to the image.


Images in portfolio entries .portfolio.item are set via background-image for the block .img

Contact form

The actions of the button when sending are described in file scripts.js starting from line 272 (for programming)

Form in modal window

The actions of the button when sending are described in file scripts.js starting from line 331 (for programming)

Showcase Page

The page contains switchers and associated whith them blocks. The switches are in the block .tabs-section.

Note: when you add or remove a new switch, you must do so in two blocks: .tabs and .js-mobile-select

.js-mobile-select – switch for mobile devices, connected to the main switch

div#portfolio contains the contents of the tabs. Number of switches and bloks .portfolio-block must match

Blog pages

Switches work similarly to a page with cases.


The videos on the pages must contain the path to the image in attribute poster to be displayed before the video is played.

Changing the color of the menu opening effect. To change the colors you need to edit the block .shape-overlays > linear Gradient, parameter stop-color

To add menu items, you need to add them via <li> in .global-menu__item .right ul
