4 New HostPay Templates - Heart Internet Blog - Focusing on all aspects of the web

We are pleased to announce the release of four new and stylish web hosting templates for our HostPay customers. We feel the new designs will give you a very clean and professional looking hosting template which can be installed in a matter of clicks!One of our main objectives was to make it easy as possible for our customers to change the look and feel of each template to their liking so as a result everything is controlled via CSS. As the templates are CSS driven you’ll be able to edit the content within the pages much more quickly, as there is now less code and imagery you’ll find the pages load lightning quick, in fact around 400% quicker than our original HostPay template.

You will also find that the HostPay templates are XHTML & fully standards compliant (Yes it passes the W3C test!) and will render nicely in all browsers, Firefox users will also get the added bonus of rounded corners as the templates take advantage of the -moz-border-radius CSS property. You won’t find any < table > tags used within the coding of the design either! πŸ™‚

    Great new templates! The fact they are in pure CSS is really good too. I’ve just used the blue one as the basis for my new site branding that I’ve been working on.

    Also, a good tip for people wanting the rounded corners to show in Webkit browsers like Google Chrome and Safari is to add -webkit-border-radius: (then the pixel amount) every time you see an instance of the -moz-border-radius:

    Fantastic news guys. This is long overdue and will help me greatly. I’ve been trying to find the time to convert the old HostPay interface for over a year now.

    It’s always fallen to the bottom of the to-do list but now we have a nice tableless design so that I can feel in total control of things.

    I look forward to setting it up and pulling in many new clients.

    Big thanks to all that worked on making this possible.

    @ Phil

    Glad you like the new templates, having pure CSS should make it much more easier to update and I can see from your website you’ve done a fantastic job. Thanks also for the webkit-border-radius: tip!

    Cheers for your Comments.

    @ Tim

    Thank you also for the feedback, i’m glad the new easy-to-use templates will no longer put you off in creating your new-look hosting company. We wish you great success with your business.

    Dam blast to the new templates!

    I have no excuse stopping me from setting up HostPay now. lol

    Great work “Team Heart”.

    A little hint for others : Using the Fire Fox plugin “web-developer” will help get you up to speed with your design.

    Wish you all well.

    Urghh, very nice looking templates but kind of annoying as about a week ago i spent a long time customizing my site xD.

    Probably will just keep my site how it is, may go to your templates later on then re customize it to my look so its W3C compliant.

    Great job anyways πŸ™‚

    Hey nice new themes.

    But one question, I cant seem to get the control panel looking like this https://www.heartinternet.uk/blog_assets/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/blog-template-cp.gif

    is that just an example of what it may look like or can we set it too look like this?

    Regards

    @ Chris

    It should just look like this once you have installed the theme. Feel free to raise a support ticket if it is not showing up correctly for you and we will have a look into it.

    It would be great to see these in action. If anyone is using the new templates and is willing to share it with us leave us a link here so we can check it out.

    In the hostpay theme selector page there is the option to download all of the themes but these themes in the download are only the original image versions. Is this download going to be updated so we can get our hands on the css templates to modify before having to install them via the theme selector? eg can we have a base copy to update and then ftp these to the server?

    by the way they are great looking templetes and would allow for greater customisation. Many thanks for listening.

    Excellent!I’ve been avoiding setting this up due to the work that would of needed, but now with the new templates I’m finally going to dip my toes in the water πŸ™‚

    @ Dave

    Yes we will get those updated for you.

    Great templates,

    It looks much easier to update and customize than the previous ones, it’s a shame that I already have my own customised!

    What I would like to know is if there’s any way I can get hands to the images of the front end of the new templates and the register form/s without installing everything again?

    What you guys doing with Hostpay is fab, well done you all.

    @Helio – on the HostPay page where you choose your template, download the zip file at the top of the page and the images are available in there. Hope that helps.

    Great templates, I agree finally no excuse to get this setup!

    Now we need the same for the control panels etc.. bring on the nice new templates

    Also we need access to the scripts that HostPay runs, it is all about the programming and access to these, or even limited versions would be a start…

    Thanks

    Are there any good articles about making the whole HostPay process automated? I.e lists the actual packages you set in the HostPay setup, kind of seems a little silly to state packages which don’t get automatically added to your HostPay installation. I am hoping I am simply missing something obvious.

    Would also be nice to see some examples of what other customers have done with HostPay as a system.

    Using these new themes in IE 8 do not show the rounded boxes?

    Does anyone know why or what needs to be changed in the CSS for these to work??

    Thanks

     
  • Ben

    @ Stuart

    Thanks for your question,IE 6, 7 & 8 do not yet support the rounded corners CSS property, so if you wanted rounded corners in all browsers you would have to create a static image with rounded corners using your favourite graphics package rather than relying purely on CSS.

    {background: url(/path/to/background.png) no-repeat bottom; width: 200px height: 300px; }

    You’ll need to of course change the width, height and the background location, but I hope that gives you an idea how to do it.

    Hope that helps.

    Are these templates still available and if so where can I access them.I have tried following the link above but just keeping getting an error message.

     
  • 03/11/2010

    Andrew,

    Yes they are all still there. Have you installed HostPay? You need to activate that first.

    For rounded corners on ie6,7,8 use cssPIE this would also require some hacking in css itself applying position:relative and z-indexes to the divs.

    Hey has anyone used these? How do they render on mobile browsers? It would be great if they degrade well also.

    Great templates, well done.

    Still would be cool to get a “how-to” to modify the templates or even how to create our own ones if possible.

    The majority of the people are familiarized more with html, css and even php, but with ruby stuff its a bit more complex to work through it πŸ™

    Hope a nice tutorial is released on the blog and or emailed to reseller customers.
