Striking Studio - FASO releases a new Generation 3 template

Striking Studio (beta) template


In addition to our newest color palettes, we've also been at work on our newest template release - Striking Studio.  This template is a very clean, modern look with most of your navigation options on the left side of the page.  It's a mobile responsive template, so your site will look great on laptop, tablet, and mobile phone screens.  The one difference you'll note is the widgets are at the bottom of the screen rather than on the side.



Another cool feature to note is, depending upon which color scheme you choose, the navigation area is a gradient color rather than a solid block of color.


If you're wondering, this template falls into the Gen 3 template category, which include:


* Up to 13 main navigation categories

* built-in support for Facebook "like" buttons and other social sharing options

* 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've been mulling over giving your site a fresh, new look you should give Striking Studio a try.  Here's how:


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 Striking Studio


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


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



Some users are already enjoying the new template - take a look at how they've made it unique for them.














Clean, responsive, and easy to put into place - so you can get back to the studio and keep creating those masterpieces.

Good afternoon,

I love everything about the Striking Studio (beta) template except the fact the artworks are displayed in such a big size. I am reluctant to use it because when you look at a collection, you have to change your web display to a smaller size and I don't think a visitor will (know how) to do it. As a result, you only see half of the painting.
For this reason I kept the Devonshire template because I like the main view, which is the one where you see the thumbnail of all your paints.

Thank you for reading !

These are new responsive designs, so you have to keep in mind that the artworks CHANGE size and how they are arranged depending on the size of the screen. They are bigger on big screens, smaller on smaller screens, and rearrange down into one column for phones.

The reality is that we're moving away from a world where web designs have a fixed layout like a page and into a world where we have to deliver the best experience we can for each device.

But we will keep your suggestion in mind for future templates for sure as we can probably work something out!

OK, I understand why it was designed this way and how it accomodates the display with the device that it is viewed on.
The feature I liked too is having the links like Blog, newsletter, etc at the botton of the screen instead of the left.
Anyway, thanks a lot for your reply and keep us posted if/when you get a new template out !
