Grill
#1

This is not just a theme it is a complete sample site. Once you have the sample site installed you can delete parts you don't want and replace pages and content. The theme alone will not work without the right plugins. Install like this on a web server or locally on wamp/lamp:
1. Install Getsimple with your own username and password.
2. Copy the contents of the zip archive over your site root so that each folder(data, plugins, and theme) merges and overwrites the existing folder.
3. login to the site admin pages or backend and Activate the theme 'Grill'

You should then have a sample site with pages and subpages, components, blog posts and plugins. You may wish to update the plugins if they aren't the latest versions.

Customisation and Editing

Page Templates are put together from partial templates with the extension .inc.php so you can assemble pages to include or exclude sliders, content areas etc.

All Images are in folders in data/uploads so they can be replaced through the GS backend.

The sliders contents are written in Components for easy editing and alteration.

The signature colour (orange) is entirely css generated so change it by 'find and replace' in templatemo_style.css

Special sidebars and taglines are created by naming a component sidebar-slug or tagline-slug. No need to edit the templates. Examples are included.

The icons are all fontawesome and can be changed to what you like. The hr element uses an icon also.

There is css for just two levels of navigation.

Recent Posts from News Manager are displayed in the sidebar, the footer and on the index page. The posts are different because they are selected by tag. The layout is done with Carlos's brilliant nm_custom_display_recent function from NM Addons which means the post extracts can be given any layout and can be integrated into the bootstrap grid.

Hope it all works okay!

Nice template!

How to change settings for Fancybox (slide show on the homepage) to disable;
- autoPlay = false (so without auto sliding, just on click)

I've been looking in JS but could not find the solution.

Cheers

That slider on the homepage i a woo flexslider and I don't know how you change the settings, I think they might be in the js folder somewhere. The fancybox plugin is used elsewhere but it isn't working how it should and it never validates either. I should remove it really.

[edit] yes plgins.js line 1033 //FlexSlider: Default Settings looks like the place but you will have to try it[/edit]

Thanx Tim !

Your template ( more a package) is quite similar to the one that im building for my self.
However the progress is somewhat too slow as I have to do other work too ..
I have decided to stay away from the Bootstap (overloaded css) and not necessary JS and to hand code following smacss rules.

Thanks Timbow,

if it can help... "templatemo_misc.css" need to change line 194
.fancybox-overlay {z-index: 8010;} --> .fancybox-overlay {z-index: 800;}
(I really don´t know what was wrong, UFO file, but it works to me with this little change)

also in folder:
/images/fancybox_loading@2x.gif
/images/fancybox_sprite@2x.png
/images/fancybox_overlay.png
/images/blank.gif
/images/fancybox_loading.gif
/images/fancybox_sprite.png

In "templatemo_style.css":
.search-box input {margin-top: 0px;} -->(I think if you set the height -in somewhere-and the color it is better to avoid problems with the icon)--> Example-->
.search-box input { width: 210px; height: 28px; margin-top: 2px; background-color:#fff;}

Thank you this is a very nice template.

However I found a problem with the meta tag, after fill some sentence in meta description, It was still empty when output on the page.

I checked with index.php and found something like that:

<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title><?php get_page_clean_title(); ?></title>
<meta name="description" content="">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">

It's seems like meta description doesn't refer to the right value? I'm a newbie with getsimple and PHP. How can I fix this?

Many thanks and happy new year.

Cheers

In the GetSimple admin, under pages then open Page Options you will see a place to enter a meta description. Is it not working?

Great theme!

I ran into a problem with the Font Awesome Icons on the index page. I tried to change them, but now it shows two icons, the original and the one I changed it to.
Here's the code:
<div class="icon"><i class="fa fa-heart"></i></div>

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
See attachment for visual.

You don't put anything inside the tag your doing it wrong

fontawesome normally requires
Code:
<div class="icon"><i class="fa fa-heart"></i></div>
but CKEditor doesn't like the empty tags so I had used an alternative syntax:
Code:
<div class="icon"><i class="fa">&#xf004;</i></div>
getting the unicode for the icon from here:
http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesom...heatsheet/

There is a post somewhere about altering the config of the editor so that it accepts empty <i> tags if you want to do it that way

ah yeah don't put both class and a entity, you'll get 2 icons

I just tried just that. Got 3.3.5 installed. Made sure the install finished and the vanilla site worked then I overwrote the grill folders (plugins, data and theme). choose the theme and poof..it works..like a charm.
(check temp test site: http://mealex.nl/stijl.lizz/).

Make sure you first finish the install on the new getsimple install, THEN overwrite the grill stuff, it should work.

then i did upload these 3 folders from grill then i uploaded these 3 folders from the get-simple package

I can't do it for you. They are the devil's work those drop-down and fly out things. Could you put the third level static in a sidebar? You can get the php from here:
