The PRO's PRO Template Contest is starting on November 13, 2009.
Participants can enter the contest by creating and submitting one or more WebriQ sites on or after that date. The site(s) can be created here.
NEW GUIDELINES AVAILABLE!
Upon logging in to your WebriQ site, choose the 'Universal Template' Lite or PRO from the 'Design\Templates' submenu. We recommend the PRO for those participants who want a completely unique design therefore want to change every parameter whereas the Lite is for those who want to start off from a solid basis.
As only the sky with the stars and imagination is the limit, we encourage you to create a unique design. Aesthetics and originality are two key factors when evaluating the contest works.
You have the following options:
- When you want to change the layout of the basic design (which we recommend to start with): Click the 'Design' icon on the admin menu bar and choose the 'Layout Preset' submenu. Here you can set the skeleton and layout of your site
- When you want to change the basic design: Click the 'Design' icon on the admin menu bar and choose the 'Customize' submenu. The online interface will allow you to set the color, size and images of the design elements. You can save more version of your settings then you can revert to any of these versions and load it to your site anytime.
- When you want to create a completely new design: Click the 'Design' icon on the admin menu bar and choose the 'Template Creator Kit' submenu. Here you can Export to your computer the CSS code with all its modifications. The exported ZIP file contains:
The modified sample xhtml page
The images directory of the design
A readme file.
Modify as needed the CSS file taking into account the instructions in the readme file then compress it and Import it. If you follow the instruction you reach the desired result. You forgot something? No worries! You may either use the on-line customization or modify the CSS off-line then load it up again.
As far as the content is concerned, you can create your menu structure as needed with the 'Menu Editor' in the admin menu bar then fill it up with content using the functions of the admin menu bar.
