Light or dark mode – your choice
The example template you’ll see is a dark theme one – just to illustrate it as such. But you can personalize your website as you wish, from light to dark to mixed.
It’s easy to change the appearance of each page by three different factors:
- Buttons and links color
- Sections background color
There’s two choice of fonts that come with this template. They have a stylish and a professional look and feel. Hence, it’s easy to switch between them by changing a single parameter in the body tag.
Still, if you want more control, you can always add your own fonts as well.
Buttons and links color
We call these CTAs – call to action. As for the fonts above, you can change the buttons and links color by changing one parameter in the body tag. There are six colors already defined in the template: red, green, blue, orange, pink and cyan. In addition, to use your own colors, you can easily change a few values in the css files.
Sections background color
To make your website all dark or light, all you need to do is to set each section to the same background color. Same goes for the header and footer sections, which use the same values. Or, you can mix them up to have a more colorful, diverse website.
Your choice of background colors, out of the box, are white, light, grey, dark, and black. This free bakery html template was built as full dark mode just to illustrate that you can. Therefore, by changing one parameter at the beginning of each section in the code, you can switch between these predefined background colors.
Change the values in the css files to use any other background colors you wish.
To add even more options for customization, the sections come with a very simple way to define top and bottom spacing. There are a few predefined values you’ll find in the code short coded as s, m, and so on up to xl.
There is much more that you can customize and use with the free template. Documentation is available with the premium version of this template if you choose to purchase it. The free bakery html template is a small scale version of the Basic8 HTML5 template, the premium version, which contains more features and functionality, besides the documentation.
