FASO Releases the new Morphic Maplelicious Template


Morphic Maplelicious template

 

We're talking about a new type of template today - Morphic Maplelicious.  Not only is it a new "look" but it also has a new feature - it's a responsive template that adjusts on mobile screens.  Not sure what that means?   Responsive templates rearrange elements on the website as necessary to look great on all screen sizes.  This allows your site to look awesome to visitors whether they are on a smartphone, a tablet or a desktop computer.

 

Of course, this falls into the Gen 3 template category - need a reminder on why you'd want to update your site style to a Gen 3 template?  

 

Generation 2 and 3 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 you like the new Morphic Maplelicious template, it will only take a few minutes to add to your site...

 

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.  You'll need to click on the image that says Morphic Maplelicious.

 

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

 

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

 

Still not clear on responsive templates?  Remember when we said that it arranges elements on your site so it'll look good on all screen sizes?  Here's an example of your portfolio page on a responsive template.

 

First, a "regular" view of Clint's site:

 

 

Notice that the images are four across but staggered so that they fit better on the page.  This is a full screen view of the page.

 

Watch what happens when I resize the browser and make the window smaller...

 

 

It squeezed the images from four across to two across to allow better viewing of the images.

 

A few of our members are using Morphic Maplelicious now...if you click on any of the links, you'll be able to see the responsiveness in action.

Hi All,
I just updated to the Morphic Maplelicious template. I love it. The only transition that wasn't made were my 'Gallery' items. Do I need to make an additional adjustment?
Thank you,
Steve

The features sound great (tho I'm new to this stuff) because by summer I'd like to add prints for sale with pay pal, and many do use mobile devices, but I want to keep my color choices for a while. All of my new marketing materials were made to go with and should match my site colors. Thanks.

Judi,

If you like the responsive template but want to be able to control colors, try Cosmic Chameleon. It's the next in the series of templates - I'll be doing a write up about it very soon.

Thanks Carrie, The Cosmic Chameleon is best for me, because I could keep my colors the same as other marketing materials. I like the format and new options, tho have to learn to use them more. I accidently deleated one of my recent blogs, but will do new one simular for a new mixed media soon and release new art with it.
