    I had this post prepared yesterday and ready to go but did not publish it because the first 700 words of this post was very negative, and totally trashing the developer’s of Artisteer. My fever was back again yesterday, so I was probably more irritable and combustible than usual. After a good night of sleep, I decided to leave all my strong feelings out, and let you decide how amateurish things are at Artisteer and Themler. Anyway, let me start with the real purpose of this post – Part 1 will be dealing with a common issue found in some paid artx files, and Part 2 will show you how to insert sliders in themes like a pro. Below is the code Continue Reading…

There are plenty of websites where you can find images to use with your themes and websites you create. Some are super expensive, some are not that expensive, some are free but not for commercial purposes, some are free but you need to get permission from the owner or the picture, some require attribution, and some it seems that the way they make money is by unleashing their attorneys demanding ridiculous amounts of money from those who illegally use the images. Really, it seems that their real business is suing people, and not selling pictures. The website that I use to get my images is Pixabay. Their homepage says “Free images and videos you can use anywhere”, and “All images Continue Reading…

  This function was given to me by Malinka, so all the credit and appreciation should be directed towards her… There are numerous plugins that add this functionality to websites, but if you wanted to have the “scroll to top” feature without a plugin follow the directions below: 1 – Place this Javascript code at the bottom of the script/script.js file: /* Back to top script */ jQuery(document).ready(function () { var offset = 200; var duration = 500; jQuery(window).scroll(function () { if (jQuery(this).scrollTop() > offset) { jQuery(‘.back-to-top’).fadeIn(duration); } else { jQuery(‘.back-to-top’).fadeOut(duration); } }); jQuery(‘.back-to-top’).click(function(event) { event.preventDefault(); jQuery(‘html, body’).animate({ scrollTop: 0 }, duration); return false; }); }); /* Back to top script end */   2 – Place the following in Continue Reading…

  This is super cool – I promise ! Some of us prefer changing the default CSS art- prefix. That’s fine. Also some of us, write additional CSS rules in Artisteer to further customize some of the rules. We have a few places to write those custom rules in the export options panel, naming the “Additional CSS”, “WordPress”, “bbpress”, “Admin Page CSS”, and “Woocommerce”. Make sure to always use the art- prefix for those custom rules, because when you instruct Artisteer to change the art- prefix, it will replace all references of this prefix  with the new one. So, if you have many custom CSS rules, all having the default art- prefix, in the future, if you decide to change Continue Reading…

  I’m by all means not a SEO specialist, but even a novice web designer should know that one page websites are horrible as far as SEO is concerned. If you have very little content that fits in one page, you are better off by dividing that content into different pages. That said, we a have  a feature in our themes that we can decide which custom menu to display per page/post. Thus we can have the best of both worlds, a regular website, with blog posts, e-commerce, various other pages, and a page that will act like a one page web site.         Ok, lets start. To create a one page web site we need a few Continue Reading…
