Template Design - PLEASE HELP!

Dec 13, 2012 6:29 PM

Tags: #layout #templates #html5 #cs6

Hi! 

 

I purchased a template from ThemeForest.net.  When I open the index.html file in Dreamweaver, it looks nothing like the design.  Boxes are all over the place.  I've attached two pictures -- one of what the website looks like in a browser and another of what it looks like in Dreamweaver.

 

Thanks!  I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but it is impossible to edit.

    If you purchased a product, the seller should be accountable to support

    you. At least, that's how we work. Can you not contact Theme Forest to

    see if they can help you?

    I wasn't asking you to buy one of our products - although they are quite

    better. Two things...

     

    1. Does Template Forest have a phone number?

    2. Certain modern CSS approaches are beyond Dreamweaver's capability to

    render in Design View. Have you modified the page at all, or is it in

    its default state?

     

    Since you do not provide a link to a test page it would be hard for

    anyone to test/analyze.

    I've tried a "help" forum there, but couldn't get anyone to respond.

    Have you used their ticketing system?

    blschlawin,

     

    Have you tried previewing the design in DW using 'Live' view? This will give you a more clearer picture of what the design will actually render like.

     

    There shouldn't be an issue with the theme as such. Don't rely on 'Design' view all the time for making changes. Try getting used to 'Code' view. And yes, DW cannot render most modern CSS styles (as yet). Live view will. You could even 'Preview in Browser' to see what it looks like.

     

    -ST
