Changing Template

Hello. I would like to change the template on my website to the Horizon template. I tried to use the administrator mode, but was struggling. Could you help with making the header on the new Horizon template look like the one I have on my current site. Also, I would like to arrange the widgets the same in the new template as they are in the old template, but leave the "always farm fresh" as is for now. My custom instagram widget did not carry over to the administrator test. Also, in this new template, I think I need to drop the "Grow Your Own Consulting" tab so there is just one row of tabs across the top. I will upload new photos to put into this new template.

Lastly, could you explain to me how to use the bullet function in the text boxes and still leave blank line spaces between each bullet so that they are easier to read?

Thank you for your help.

Kristina

    Hi Kristina:

    We'd be glad to help.

    Now the "Horizon" template only had 3 photos in the header while your current template has 5. Do you have a preference which 3 photos we use from the current header?

    We should be able to copy over that instagram widget.

    Maybe we can just change "Grow Your Own Consulting" to just "Consulting" or something like that to keep it up there but make it short enough to work in that template's menu space. We can play around with that.

    In the bullet function if you just hit enter, it will create another line with another bullet. If you do SHIFT-ENTER, is should create a blank line. So if you have a bulleted list already created, just put the cursor at the end of each line and do SHIFT-ENTER and it will add blank, non-bulletted lines where you need them.

    THANK YOU. You can choose any
    ​three photos. I'm going to upload some new ones now and can go in and
    replace them...I think! :)

    Hi. Thanks for helping with this. When you do the header is it possible
    to carry over the tag line (...connecting) as it exists now with the farm
    name?

    Ok, check out the work I did on the header so far.

    I added that extra text. Also, since I thought you might like your logo up there, I superimposed it over the photo of the peppers and inserted it there. Just thought you'd like to try that out.

    I also shrank a couple of the menu options - "Sunbow CSA" became "Our CSA" and I made the other one just "Consulting". Now they all fit on one line alright.

    I'll get to work on the widgets here in a bit.

    Hi. Header looks great. Like having the logo on the pepper pic. Can we
    make it a little smaller and over to the left some so as not to block the
    purple eggplant?

    When you work on widgets, can we get rid of "join our mailing list" and put
    them in the same order as on the current page? Under Always Farm Fresh
    would be sunbow on instagram, member center, work share members, what's
    new.

    Also, can we remove the left hand menus and widgets on all the secondary
    pages? I would prefer to have more room for the content of those specific
    pages?

    Lastly, I think, can I change the section on the bottom left of the footer
    to be the content of the "About our Farm" page rather than the home page?

    Thank you so much for taking the time to help me!

    Ok...

    1) Header changes made

    2) Widgets added/adjusted in the new template

    3) I removed the sidebar menu and extended the main content area. I've never done that on this template, so let's keep on eye on this and make sure nothing gets formatted weird, but its looking ok on my computer.

    4) On the template the main content area and that footer pull from the same "description" page. There isn't a way to override that.

    Thanks. Looks like the sidebar content on the front page got dumped way
    down - starting at the very bottom. Can we fix that?
    Everything else that I noticed, I think I can adjust.

    How do I take this page live once we fix the sidebar issue on the front
    page?

    Ok, that is fixed.

    To go live, just go to - Display --> Template Settings --> Template Settings and go to the "Choose New" tab and click the "Set as Current Template" link next to the Horizon template. That'll make it the live template.
