FASO Releases the new Gotham Template


The new Gotham template

 

 

Back in February, we were showcasing some new color palettes and we tempted you with a teaser for the not yet released Gotham template.  

 

We're happy to say that the new Gotham template is ready for your use[1] and it gives you full advantage of all the benefits of an enhanced template.

 

Just in case you were wondering, some of the new features of our enhanced templates include:

 

* Up to 13 main navigation categories

* built-in support for Facebook "like" buttons

* improved design and css capabilities

* improved email newsletter signup features

* PayPal "Buy Now" system upgraded and includes a shopping cart

* unlimited miscellaneous pages with new "pages" module

* much more

 

 

If the Gotham template intrigues you and you'd like to change your website's layout, please follow these instructions...

 

 

1.  From your FASO control panel home page, click on the Design link in the upper navigation bar.

 

 

2.  Then, click the link that says Change Your Site's Template

 

 

3.  Clicking the link that says Newest will sort the template so that Gotham will be at the top of the list.

 

 

4.  After sorting, you'll need to click on the image that says Gotham.

 

 

5.  It'll then show you a preview page and you'll want to click the link that says Use this template design on your site.

 

 

6.  You'll then get confirmation that changes have been made.

 

 

Some of our artists are already enjoying this new site style...

A couple of interesting details about Gotham that you should know:

 

* The color is hard coded and mimics the Dark Knight color scheme.

* Gotham is now the first template to support "fade-in" images on the works zoom pages.  Here's an example to see this in action:  http://lindadistel.com/workszoom/1164800

 

 

The new Gotham template - elegant, intense and quite possibly the perfect compliment for your amazing art.

 

 

[1]The Gotham template is still in beta development, so while we're pretty sure we've got all the details worked out, if anything arises, you'll want to let tech support know.

Hi...I like the layout of the Gotham website but if I am understanding correctly, I would not be able to change colors? I feel we need to have that option with all templates. I would also like to see the option to magnify or zoom detail rather than only enlarge. If I were an art buyer, I would want to be able to see detail up close and in particular if it's photography check that it is in fact in sharp focus. Other sites utilize this feature, so the only disappointing element to be missing from FASO.

I tried the new Gotham template right away; love it! The technical department helped with a beta issue and I am set. I still have other changes I am working on, but thank you for the new template!

I just applied the new Gotham template. I love the slick look of it! I like the side bar of new works and other aspects of my site. More enticing than a simple menu across the top. Thanks again Clint for another wonderful application, applied effortlessly :). Two thumbs up!

Monika,

If you like Gotham but the color scheme isn't quite what you need, you should try out the template "Evoke". It's most similar to Gotham and you're able to customize the colors.

As for the detail option - our developers are considering it. I don't have any idea on a potential release date but it is something they are aware of.
