  1. Site URL: https://www.waterdragonfabrics.com/ Hi folks, I hope you are all doing well! This might not be something that's generally posted here but I thought there are probably some talented people that could point me in the right directions. I'm looking to realize something, (with the help of an expert of course) that I don't really have any knowledge about. The project is planned for this page: https://www.waterdragonfabrics.com/ It is about creating an interactive chart that let's people choose and visualize various color combinations and clothing designs in some kind of interavtice chart. This is a tailor-shop for traditional Chinese martial arts clothing. We offer a variety of different designs (cuts), fabrics, and options for the trim (multi colored outfits). The customer can browse the shop and choose from a variety of examples. He then adds his preferences, fabric choices and variations. Some products have a pop-up form that shows up when they click on the "add to cart" button. This is used to fill in sadditional information. The customer submits his measurements after placing the order. You can see that this process is rather difficult and creates lots of friction in the checkout process. I am not sure if this is something that can be realized but I'm sure you will let me know. 😉 My plan is to create a drawing (probably a vector file?) with simple black lines for each upper garment. This means there will be a shirt with long sleeves, another drawing is the same shirt with long sleeves but different cuffs, then a short sleeve shirt etc. Each design will be a different variation. Sometimes the variation is only slightly different like the amount of buttons. This means there will be a good 20-30 drawings in total. The next step I am imagining is to link all these pictures to a text link in a chart. In other words, if the customer clicks on "Traditional shirt with long sleeves" the allocated drawing will show up. Up to this point I believe it's not too bad to realize. However, my next wish is as follows: I would love a feature that allows the customer to color different sections of the individual drawings. That means the section of a trim detail, for example the cuff, can be colored by simply choosing a color from a normal color palette. The goal is that the customer can visualize the color combination. Our goal is to make the internal processes easier and get rid of the friction in the checkout process. If we can somehow connect the choices of the customer, may it be a direct link to the shopping cart with allocated variants connected (to adjust the price according to the customers choices) or even simply to submit the choice via email or to download the choices for sending them to us manually, that would be great. We try to get the customer to make a purchase as quickly and easily as possible to remove the friction. The prices will change depending on the design variations and not the color variations. This means the filled-in color choices would not have to be linked to a different price, only the design option (that's allocated to a different drawing). We do have different prices depending on the fabrics, but I'm open to simplify for the sake of convenience for the customer. The more intuitive this chart can be, the better. The more we can link the customers' choices to different price selections the better. If we can somehow guide the customer directly to the shopping cart after selecting this would be great too. I understand that this requires a bunch of coding, possibly Javascript, html or even programming. If you think that squarespace is a bit limiting for creating something like this, we'd also have a separate web server that possibly works instead. We could somehow connect them. If there are any simplified solutions that have a similar effect, reducing friction and making it easier for the customer, I'm open to hear any suggestions. For us it would be very convenient if the customer somehow submits this drawing with his color choices because we'd be able to use it for processing the order with our tailor. So we'd save some time there, too. I will be able to provide all the drawings made via illustrator or photoshop. Please let me know your thoughts on this project. If you think I can begin creating the drawings (since these will be part of the project no matter what) what file would you make them as? Or am I imagining things too easy? Again sorry if this in the wrong place. Maybe someone knows someone that's really good at this stuff. I am looking forward to your reply.
  2. Site URL: https://www.waterdragonfabrics.com/ Hi there! I am trying to create a piece of CSS code to change the font on my gallery image block (poster). The text that's in bold letters on top of the image. I have just tried piecing something together but I have not enough knowledge of CSS. Something along the lines of this: .design-layout-poster .image-title p:(color:white!important font:? size:? You can see I am not too experienced. Would appreciate your help. Also I am not sure where to take the font info from. I am imagining I can just use a font name that squarespace offers me in the site styles? Best wishes, Marco
  3. Site URL: https://www.waterdragonarts.com/online-courses/yijin-jing-extensive-program Hello there, I am having a little problem which I hope is easy to solve. I want to have a text with a "read more button" at the bottom. I found this post and entered the CSS and code exactly how it was described. And it works almost great! (The only downside is that when you click "read less" it goes to the footer and not back up to the beginning of the text) This is not my problem though. Here is the deal: The text that I want to appear is very long and I need to brake the lines in multiple spots to make it nicer to read. However, I don't know how to do that. It always goes back to one space. I have tried using </p> to brake the line. and yes, it works, but than the button doesnt work anymore and the entire text stays visible (it doesn't collapse). Any idea how to fix this? Here is the CSS: .read-more-state { display: none; } .read-more-target { opacity: 0; max-height: 0; font-size: 0; } .read-more-state:checked ~ .read-more-wrap .read-more-target { opacity: 1; font-size: inherit; max-height: 999em; } .read-more-state ~ .read-more-trigger:before { content: 'Read More'; } .read-more-state:checked ~ .read-more-trigger:before { content: 'Read Less'; } .read-more-trigger { cursor: pointer; display: inline-block; padding: 0 .5em; color: #666; font-size: .9em; line-height: 2; border: 1px solid #ddd; border-radius: .25em; } .read-more-trigger:hover { background:#666; color:white; } And here is the code: (Still with the </p>) <div class="show-hide"> <input type="checkbox" class="read-more-state" id="visible" /> <div class="read-more-wrap"> <p>The Daojia and Xiongshi Yijin Jing are my personal favourite Qigong practices. I have researched the Yijin Jing extensively within my own body, guided by my Taoist master Wang Gang and master Qu Hai. Through many years of practice and correct guidance I was able to experience the effects of the Yijin Jing not only externally, but also the many subtle changes that happen internally. After an additional 2 years of training Taiji and Qigong in a full-time setting in China, I feel ready to humbly pass on this technique and guide you through this journey. When you develop this practice to a high level, the Yijin Jing can transform even the smallest framed individual into a healthy and strong person capable of incredible feats of strength and willpower.</p> <p class="read-more-target">As you will find out soon, there are different layers (sets of cues) to this practice and it is important to be patient and stick to the correct order. The Daojia Yijin Jing is particularly good for beginners because you’re basically starting out by setting the correct foundation for any type of Qigong. - Relaxation and the awareness of Qi. Only if you are able to fully relax in each position you will gain the benefits of this practice. The Xiongshi method of the “Muscle and Tendon Changing Qigong” is specifically designed for martial arts. Both classics are following the principle of Zhan Zhuang Gong. (Standing Pole Exercises) This program is the result of roughly 2 years of work, study and specific training. I have constantly come across new questions and traveled to China to find answers and study under authentic mentor-ship. I may assume that you too, will have questions. That’s why I offer my guidance and encourage all my students to stay in touch with me. I am always happy to help. The practice of Qigong is vast and requires us to frequently check in with ourselves and assess our experiences. It is a practice for a lifetime, especially considering the internal development and self-cultivation. In fact, there is not such a thing as a “finish line” or a final goal to achieve. The practice is to further ones skill in many aspects e.g. health or martial arts, sensitivity to Qi, for self-cultivation and awareness, as well as harmony with what is and what will be. Throughout that journey we will observe the transformation and welcome the beneficial change in our body, mind and spirit. </p> <p> What is the Yijin Jing? </p> <p> According to a legend the Yijin Jing was left behind by Damo (Bodhidarama) in the cave in which he meditated and developed it for multiple years. Legend says that when Damo found refuge in the Shaolin temple and realized that the monks had been neglecting their physical body in their cultivation practice, he decided to retreat there to find a solution for cultivating body, mind and spirit simultaneously. It is said that the Shaolin monks achieved their great skills due to achieving this manuscript but also lost the correct purpose of cultivating the Way. (Dao) </p> <p> The true strength of the body is expressed through the tendons, rather than the muscles. Tendons don't just require much less maintenance and caloric fuel than building muscles, they also hold up their strength long term. The practice of strengthening the tendons allows the joints to open, grow stronger and store more energy. These exercises are great not only to strengthen the muscles/tendons and nourish the entire body but also to become more sensitive to the sensation of Qi. </p> <p> The Daojia Yijin Jing, which we will begin this course with, is attributed to a Taoist Master called Zhang Boduan. It is noticeably different from the famous Shaolin Yijin Jing. The Shaolin version is commonly practiced in a very soft and dynamic way, loosening muscles and moving energy through the body. Most of the time you only stay for a short moment and for very few repetitions in the ranges in which your tendons are most actively used. The version we practice here is from the Taoist school and involves staying in these ranges for longer periods of time. This is the very effective principle of Zhan Zhuang Gong (Standing Pole Exercises). </p> <p> The Xiongshi Yijin Jing, which we practice after the Taoist method, is attributed to the Xiong family. You will be accumulating Qi in different areas of your body through moving in ranges in which your tendons are most actively used. Throughout practice we will constantly change from tension to relaxation, from soft to hard and from yin to yang. This has a stronger effect on the tendons. This method was specifically designed for martial arts and is very effective due to more demanding postures. </p> <p> The purpose of the Yijin Jing is to transform weak sinews and tendons to strong ones. Movements are gentle but the execution requires holding limbs out for long periods of times which can be quite vigorous. In coordination with your breath, you will unify your will and strength to perform these exercises and build an awareness of your energetic body through relaxation. The various postures influence the static nervous system and structure of your body. Through stretching muscles and tendons you nourish your organs, joints, bones and cultivate Qi, as well as gaining flexibility. Besides the obvious affects like an improved sense of balance, better stature and body coordination, you will use the breath to refine and increase your Qi. Unlike the exercises done at the gym which focus on developing muscles or cardio, the Yijin Jing focuses on infusing soft tissue, including the ligaments, tendons, fascia, and even the bone marrow with this refined Qi.</p> </div> <label for="visible" class="read-more-trigger"></label> </div>
  4. Sorry for the late reply. I Didnt like it. Lot's of bugs and it slowed down the website too much. that being said I don't really know what I am doing half of the time. Some others might be able to add some code or things like that to fix some of the problems.
  5. Hello everybody, A while ago I installed the star widget and facebook comment box and ran into some problems. It never displayed until I would refresh my browser. (It's the same with Opera, Mozilla and Chrome) I will attach a couple of screenshots that will show you the problem. I wasn't really too concerned but now I decided to go with a better rating widget, I chose to try Bawkbox. I placed the code under each product. This new widget (paid version) has the same issue and it only displays correctly when I refresh the page. Unfortunately my coding knowledge goes as far as copy and paste. I do believe in the importance of public reviews and ratings of products though and really would like this to work. Do you have any idea what this is caused by? Thanks, Marco
