Free Website Template ‘Ripley’
Here’s a free website template – ‘Ripley’. Despite having a decidedly Aliens theme, this simple website template can be used for any business.
What’s included in the Ripley Website Template?
The website template includes:
- Inner Page with Sidebar
- Full Width Page
- Contact Page
All the source files and code is included for you to amend as you wish.
The site is based on Bootstrap 4.0.0 as is a hand coded, completely original design.
How to use the Ripley web design template
The Ripley Logo
To replace the logo you will need 2 image files – one in colour, the other white. These should be PNG files ideally with pixel dimensions of 229 x 38px. The easiest way to replace them is to create the 2 files in PhotoShop, Illustrator or whatever graphics program you use and call them the exact same names as they are now and replace the existing files. That way the site can just be refreshed and your logos will replace the current ones. 2 logos are needed due to the colour change of the navbar when scrolling.
The Background Images
Add your images to the /images folder and update the ‘ripley.css’ file located in the /css folder. The top image is either the .jumbotron or the .page-header. You can have different images if you like. Simply replace
with the name of your image once you have added it to the images folder.
I recommend making background images 1950px wide as a medium quality .jpeg or .jpg file. This way you get a good quality background image that still allows the page to load quickly.
The forms are not included as working – you will need to add your own php files etc once you have uploaded the site.
Google Map on the Contact Page
You can replace the Google map with your own – just replace the embedded code with your own code from Google Maps. Remember to make the width 100%.
Uploading the Web template to your hosting
You will need an FTP connection to upload the site to your hosting server. I use Filezilla which is free to use and very reliable. Download Filezilla for free here: https://filezilla-project.org/
