|New cover page|
I had been using the Momentum template but after checking out some of the newer offerings by Squarespace I decided to go with Fulton. I am still designing my own opening page (Home) by using the Squarespace Cover Page offerings. These pages are really meant to be used as one page web sites but with some tweaking, I use one of the templates as my web site cover page.
The Fulton template allowed me to design the various image gallery pages so that on opening they default to a grid layout of images rather than a slide show of individual images. Clicking on any of the images immediately transforms the view to a full page slide show and a click on the "X" in the top right corner takes you back to the grid. Clicking within the enlarged image advances the slide show from image to image if you choose to remain in the slide show format. I also like the width of the grid which is 1200 or so pixels wide rather than extending full width of the screen and the banner that you can create across the top using an image of your choice.
I tried my best to keep the design simple and clean, resisting the urge to muck things up with clutter. Let's see how long this permutation lasts….
