Hello
I have found a css style from www.free-css.com and I am not sure as to how I implement it on to my site. The style is itdesk. In the download package it just gives you images and some css code. Please can someone help me with instructions on how to implement this. The style dowmload link is here.

Regards
Amar

P.S I am a silver customer.

Hi,

Unfortunately, you cannot use a downloaded CSS style unless you are well versed in CSS. (Or know someone who is.)

If you really want this style I suggest you give me the link to the style you chose, and it'll take a few days (or maybe more) and then I'll give you the code.

Please note that I may not be able to do it, I'll tell you after I see the style you chose.

Hi Parthiv
Where I say "The Download link is here" that is where the style's page is. In the download package there is heaps of css code and images. The thing I am unsure of is how to implement this in to yola. I have access to custom css editing so that may help.

Regards

Unfortunately, this template has too much content, so it'll be extremely hard (very near impossible) to put this in Yola.

Well, I guess you could pay someone or ask a friend to analyse and translate the code, but, like Nazlie said, it'll be a time-consuming task.

Unfortunately I don't have the time to translate the whole style, but I can help translate, give a few pointers, etc. to whoever's translating it, if you want.

Hi Amar

I do hope that Parthiv will be able to help you out with this. I haven't downloaded the code myself, but if it is quite complex as Parthiv says then it will be time-consuming to analyze.

If you guys have questions or want advice, please keep adding to this thread and we'll help out wherever possible.

Thank you
Nazlie

Oh so you want the whole site CSS huh? Hmm.... Well I see some stuff that might not work. Like most likely the CSS includes the menu to and if you dont have the right id="" and class="" on the menu items it will not be affected. I will download this package and take a closer look.
Hmm pretty simple but I'm not sure if it will just work with the yola site.

Hi Amar,
I'm glad you asked that question. I've come across your same problem a few months ago, while working on a site for a volunteer group. There was a great style available for download, yet no way to directly add the CSS file. What I did was compromise and added elements of that style into the volunteer website. The hard part was making a style that matched the one I wanted. Luckly there is site that lets you write CSS (or JavaScript or HTML) and shows you the instant results, so you don't have to wait to see if your coding works. It's: w3schools.com.

Doing it that way is not as easy as just cut and paste. It also doesn't fix the class issue. But it does save you a lot of time and puts direct control of your site content into your hands. Maybe something to consider.
