Hi,
I'm interested in template 39739 'Motive' for an artist website and I have a few questions.

I'm wondering about my options concerning the display of a portfolio. Could you please let me know whether it is possible for someone without coding knowledge to:

a)easily change the background grid of the template, to a chosen plain colour?

b)implement a gallery display, that when enlarging a particular image, it is shown over a white background, as opposed to the dimmed out grey/black background as in your Demo?

Also could you let me know whether this template operates with a CSS3 and HTML5 platform?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Zohrab.

Hi Zohrab!

For your first question I feel it is easy, but you will have to make some changes to a CSS file to do what you want. Basically in the CSS file called style1.css you will find something that looks along the lines of:

Quote:
body {
url("../images/texture.jpg") repeat scroll 50% 0 transparent;
}


The important part there is "../images/texture.jpg". Basically you can replace the texture.jpg file with another background image you want to load, or remove that line completely. If you want to put a solid background color instead you could do something like:

Quote:
body {
background-color:silver;
}


Or you could use a more specific color using the #234141 syntax. Not sure if that will seem easy or hard to you.

For your second question if you are just wanting to change that dimmed out grey/black background to a white background, then you would need to do another CSS edit by opening up media/system/css/modal.css in the template directory. In there you would change:

#sbox-overlay

basically you will see a background-color set to #000000. Simply change that to white or #ffffff and that should make the background a white color instead of a black color.

For your last question this template is using XHTML 1.0, so it is not using HTML5. You would need to convert it to HTML5 if you really want that.

I hope that helps with your questions :)

Hi Brian,

Thank you for your swift and detailed reply. Yes, that sounds promising.

The only thing left to decide is whether HTML5/CSS3 is really necessary. My main concern is about the alleged SEO advantages of going down this route. I had't thought about converting to HTML5 as you suggest, is this complicated for someone who is competent with computers, but has no real coding experience?

Thanks again,
Zohrab

Hi Zohrab,

I am not sure there would be many SEO advantages of using HTML5 vs XHML or HTML4. I just don't see Google, at least at this time giving higher rankings to websites that are using HTML5. In my opinion they are more about ranking high quality relevant websites first that a user would be interested in based on their query. Most users don't care what goes on behind the scenes and I think Google would understand that.

I think your deciding factor on if HTML5 is necessary is if you plan to use some of HTML5's features with your website, such as the video and audio tag, or if you are wanting to be more semantically correct with your content which might assist with screen readers or accessibility, or if you plan to use the canvas element for certain animations or special effects, or any of the other things HTML5 opens things up for.

To convert the template over probably wouldn't be too hard, you would need to change the doctype at the top, and possibly add a JavaScript HTML5 shiv to help older IE browsers to continue to render your website properly. However, you would probably need to learn HTML5 and some basic coding experience as you might have to get involved with working around PHP tags to be able to change the template over. Nothing too complicated, but would probably take a basic understanding of HTML5 and any complications that are currently involved with using it (mainly older browser support).

Hope that helps in deciding what way is best for you :)
