We appreciate your feedback Carl but when developing PageLines Framework, we read through all the feedback we received regarding Platform Pro, to see where we went wrong and what we could improve upon. One of the most common issues users of Platform Pro had were that the number of options available was just far too confusing.
So due to the feedback, we decided to remove some of the options, which in the past only lead to a bloated product and confusion. These changes allow our users to create a great looking website up, fast with little to no effort and make the experience as pleasant as possible.
We knew that in doing this some users, especially designers would require custom CSS to achieve the certain designs. That is why, we used color math, which created different highlights and tones based on the colors you have chosen on the Color Control settings panel. We also gave all sections unique classes, which can be used to easily override the default style.
We also understand that some of our users have little to no knowledge of CSS and will require assistance to achieve the look they're after. This is why I am currently re-writing the docs, with these users in mind and in the future be finalising the customisation section which will hopefully address some of the most common customisation questions, such as:
How to center my navigation for Fixed Navigation, NavBar, Nav Classic, Secondary Navigation and Scroll Spy
How to change the size of fonts for specific sections or areas.
How to add contact information or a google advert to the header/branding area of your website
And so on...
You can see my progress here -
For designers, we created a theming center which should assist most designers -
Also, I would welcome any feedback/suggestions regarding our docs. You can use the following form to contact me -
