    Web Design site using heavily modified Aurora template

    Posted 5 months 1 day ago
    • Hi Everyone,

      We've recently re-launched our company website.

      We're a Web Design company based in Australia. We experimented with flat design, incorporating graphical elements, flat blocks of colour and many different Gantry particles. We really wanted to show clients that a templated web design doesn't always mean it ends up looking like the original template.

      We're super please with how it's turned out.

      If you have a spare couple of minutes, take a look and let us know what you think.

    • Again another site - watch out for the markup errors though... https://validator.w3.org/nu/?doc=https%3A%2F%2Fmarketeam.com.au%2F . It's always worth checking all pages with that tool.

      Regards, Mark.

    • I was referring to the errors not the yellow warnings - but ignore them if you wish, I was just making a suggestion to improve your site.

    • I know - and I appreciate it - I was just being a cheeky bugger! :-P

      I am interested however, one error seems to be thrown from embedding a Google Map, and the other is from the subscription particle - I don't see how I could get around not using an iFrame for a Google map but the subscription particle error is interesting.

      Will look into that further.

    • Using an Iframe is perfectly acceptable - it's the use of the "frameborder" attribute on that tag that is not.

      I see you moved forward with the other error too now... but there's still a couple to address left and I don't think the issues are coming from RT code - but let me know if you think that they are.

    • Hi Mark,

      Ok - I've managed to get rid of all errors bar one.
      validator.w3.org/nu/?doc=https%3A%2F%2Fmarketeam.com.au%2F

      The Google Map was easy, just removed the frameborder reference from the code (although I have to say I think it's silly Google adds this to their embed code if it's going to throw a w3c error??)

      The Subscription particle was easy enough to fix, just tweaked some of the code in the override.

      The one I don't really understand is the 'role' in the g-offcanvas-hide div. I gather this is to hide the mobile menu on desktop and larger screens. Would it be a simple case of adding

      role="mobile-menu"

      To the div?

      I'm not overly familar with ARIA - that's why I pay for a template subscription!!!

    • You won't be able to fix that one... that is caused by Gantry 5 and there is an outstanding ticket for that... https://github.com/gantry/gantry5/issues/2127 .
