No Template option please help!

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am having an issue with templates.

I can't access templates, the option has disappeared. On my other website the option is there but for the one i have just paid for, it isn't there...am i missing something? 956442171_Screenshot2020-03-24at11_53_56.png.703207970a6102969ab3f2b17541725f.png

You use SS 7.1?

All sites in version 7.1 share the same template. That means:

  • They all have the same style options and features.
  • They all use sections to add content to pages.

There isn't a need to switch templates, so that option isn't available in version 7.1. Instead, to try out different looks for your site:

  • Change your global styles.
  • Add new pages with different starter layouts.
  • Create new sections to change a page's feel. For example, add a section with a background image at the top to create a page banner.

When you build a new site on 7.1 you choose a 7.1 "template" which is really just a layout, color palate design different from another 7.1 "template" . After its built if you want to change "templates", you tweak your site to look like a "template" you didn't choose. Unlike 7.0 where changing from one template  to another in the same family is one thing but can be quite a challenge and a huge change in style and features from one template family to another. The second usually requires a new buildout.

How can we switch to 7.0?

You start a new trial using same account , build your 7.0 site activate it, move domain, cancel first site, you will be credited for any time left on 7.1 site.

Why did they do this? Is it supposed to be better?

It depends on what level you are as a designer or want to be. 7.1 is mobile driven, easy to set up, not a lot of control so harder to mess up. I want control, greater flexibility as to what I can do with the template family I am using. Don't want all my sites to be me too looking. I use a lot of code, so I mess up every now and then, but I fix it, I learn what each template family can do (and some like Avenue are a one template family) Brine family has a lot.   I would choose to stay in the Brine Family with 7.0 instead of going to 7.1 because they look a lot alike. 7.0 really has only about 18 templates, because there are 18 families. Each family very different than the other one, so it takes a bit of time to learn them before choosing a template to build on.  I  choose to stay with 7.0, I have five sites there now.
