Pre-sale inquiry

Permalink Browser Info Environment
Hello,

For my Concrete5.7 site, I am trying to achieve the kind of front end found in the following HTML templatehttp://www.flashmint.com/template-demo-5275.html...

As I am new to Concret5 and unfortunately do not have the time to learn its deep innards/API to adapt this HTML template, I thought Long Story Short could well be the answer to my problem and this with a minimum of fuss!

I would therefore be very grateful if you could confirm that Long Story Short will be flexible enough (with minimum hacking) to at least approach the look&feel as well as structure found in the 5275 HTML template.

Thank you very much in advance.

Kind regards

Hello,

in my opinion, sometimes it can be pretty tricky to make a theme look like another: this can involve lots of tweaking and customization. If you really want your site to look like the template you mention, I think it will be more straightforward to turn that template into a concrete5 theme.

If you're a developer, the documentation and tutorials can help you. The process of turning an HTML template into a concrete5 theme was specially easy in concrete 5.6. If you don't have the time, you can also try posting in the Jobs forum.

Just my honest opinion, hope it helps :)

Thank you Jordi,

Well I only really need to be just an approach of the example template and therefore will take the plunge in buying your Long Story Short :-)
In the worst case scenario, I am sure I can put your theme to good use.
Thanks for pointing me out to the jobs forum too - being new here I didnt actually know nor seen that there was one - I sure won't fail to use it if needed be.

Anyway, once more, a big thanks for your prompt reply and honest opinion, very greatly appreciated :-)

Continue the good work and all the best!!

Monty
