Tinted tiles theme set
The Tinted tiles theme set was based on a modern flat design trend. The look of the theme can be customized by simply choosing different spacing for gadgets and selecting background colors that are best fit for your association. Taking colors from your association logotype is in most cases the right way to go.
The Tinted tiles theme set also introduces animation within system pages. You can find animated control panels on blog and forum pages for example.
Here you can place a brief description of your fundraising campaign. You can add the description within the donation goal gadget settings. There, you can also select a different style for your gadget to better fit your page design. The donation goal gadget does not have its own background setting, but you can set the background for the layout in which the gadget has been placed.
Background image for your gadgets
While the flat design of this theme set does not encourage using images as backgrounds, that shouldn't stop you. Use your best judgement to decide whether to use background images.
Margins, grids and typography
Any good looking site must have some kind of system to make it look consistent across all pages and within pages themselves. With this theme you can use all kinds of grids to make that happen. You can use a 10px grid so all your margins and padding will be a multiple of 10. Or you can use any other grid, but once you've chosen your multiplier, we advise you stick to it.
In our case, we use 10px as layout and gadget spacing, and 40px as side padding for the gadgets themselves
light and dark backgrounds
Gadgets are building blocks of Wild Apricot site pages. Each page consists of one or more gadgets arranged within page-specific layouts or theme-specific placeholders.
To help you set up your pages, this theme provides two theme styles for light and dark backgrounds. These styles have special typography that will make your gadget look good on the background of your choice.
