Things you really need to know
Please do not skip this section before submitting questions about making changes in template.
LinedUp Coming Soon template was created with:
LESS CSS - http://lesscss.org/
CSS was created with LESS so if you would like to make changes in styling you will need to open css/style.less file and make changes in it and then compile this file to css/style.min.css.
If you work on windows then one of the best and free solutions for working with LESS files is: http://wearekiss.com/simpless. For other platforms please search Google for "Less css compiler".
All Stylesheets are minified to enhance the loading time of template so please remember to use minify option after making your changes.
Bootstrap from Twitter
We used standard 12 column LESS version of Twitter Bootstrap so remember to look in libs/bootstrap folder if you like to make changes. Also remember that subscription admin panel uses the same instance of Bootstrap.
This plugin can be found in: libs/jquery.tweet.js. Configuration of this plugin is in: libs/custom.js (line 141). It's main goal is to present last 3 twitter messages in Socialize with Us section.
Whole configuration of non-standard plugins etc. is located in libs/custom.js file - look for comments to locate code that you want to edit.
Configuration of contact form is located in: libs/sendmail.php - only thing you really need to edit is e-mail address located at line 4 - $sendto variable.
Google Map configuration is in: libs/google-map-config.js file - only thing you need to edit is LatLng values:
var myLatLng = new google.maps.LatLng(40.731129,-74.201961);
Countdown plugin - configuration is located in libs/custom.js on line 133 - change the date: "17 may 2013 12:00:00" to something that fits your needs.
Subscription form is located in libs/subscribe folder.
For more information about configuration please check out the Basic setup section of this documentation.
Server side requirements
LInedUp Coming Soon Template has some basic requirements:
PHP and mail() function
Contact form sends e-mails using mail() function so without this function available on your server you wont be able to receive e-mails from people that will visit your website.
Newsletter form uses MySQL database to store the e-mail adressess. It is a lot safer solution than storing e-mails in some random file name on web server and this was the only reason we decided to go with MySQL.
Things you need to do for successful configuration of LinedUp.
Connect to your FTP server and upload all files from the html folder to your server. If you dont have any FTP manager then I recommend the Filezilla or Total Commander.
Once the files are in place navigate to your hosting control panel and locate a tool for MySQL database management - one of the most popular is phpmyadmin.
Create new database and user that will have full permissions for operating on that database.
Import the newsletter.sql file to your database - it will create "emails" table where all e-mails will be stored.
Open libs/subscribe/config.php file and define (simply edit current values in quotes):
Password that will be required for successful logging in to admin panel (admin is a default password)
Open libs/sendmail.php and change the $sendto = 'firstname.lastname@example.org'; to your desired e-mail address where all e-mails will be send by contact form.
Open libs/custom.js and navigate to line 133 where you will find: date: "17 may 2013 12:00:00" - and change it to date when your website will be ready. Clocks on the main page will adjust. You can also define an additional callback function.
Open index.php and navigate to line 99 - change the data-percentage value to adjust the progress bar animation.
LinedUp allows you to export all of your subscribers to a CSV file.
To access this feature navigate to http:///www.yourwebsite.com/libs/subscribe/admin.php
Enter password that you configured on top of the libs/subscribe/config.php
Hit the Export to CSV now! button to export all of your subscribers to a CSV file or simply copy and paste all subscribers to your e-mail application.
