How to use CSS / JS files

CSS and JS both are important part of the website. we've included all the plugins css/js inside style.css, plugins.js and scripts.js files with proper commenting to avoid more http request to server and to make website farster.

style.css Inside tasver > CSS you can find style.css which contains all the css.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">

Bootstrap.css Inside tasver > CSS you can find bootstrap.css which is the main part of the website as style based on bootstrap 3 it is recommended to include bootstrap.css file right after style.css file.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/bootstrap.css">

Page Loading Transitions

You can show Interactive loaders to your Visitors while the Pages of you Website loads in the background & then Reveal your Pages with CSS3 Transitions. Page Loading Transitions are enabled by default. To disable the Transition, you can simply remove id="preloader" right after the start tag of <body>. Also you need to remove javascript code written in scripts.js file placed in js folder.

<div id="preloader"><div class="pulse"></div></div>

Changing Fonts

Change your Fonts on the Fly as we have included fonts in Style.css Tasver use 1 Font namely: Montserrat from the Google Fonts Library.

@import url(https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Montserrat:100,200,300,400,500,600,700,800,900);

In order to change the Fonts, you will need to Edit the Above Links with your Custom Font if you plan to use a Google Font or Remove it complete if you plan to use a Self Hosted font. Here is an Example for using Self Hosted Fonts.

Website Optimization Tips

A Fast & Optimized Website has several factors which needs to be implemented in order to achieve the desired results. There are several Optimization Techniques available which will definitely affect your Website's Performance in a Positive Way & we want to share a few of them with you:

  • gZip Compression & Browser Caching

    This is probably one of the Most Important Techniques you should definitely implement in order to bump up your Website's Loading Speed. gZip Compression is used to compress the Files that are delivered when loading a Website. It covers HTML, CSS, Javascript & Font Files along with other miscellaneous text files. Where as Browser Caching also covers Images & Videos apart from including the above files. This is used to saves the Static Data in your Browser itself so that when you open the Next Pages on the Same Website, the content does not gets Downloaded again, loading the Website fast.

    gZip Compression & Browser Caching can be enabled using the .htaccess File on an Apache Web Server. You can use the Codes from here: https://github.com/h5bp/html5-boilerplate/blob/master/dist/.htaccess to enable these modules on your server.

  • Image Compression & Optimization

    We tend to use Lots of Images on our Websites but we often do not make efforts to Compress & Optimize them. Remember, the Larger the Image, the more time it takes to download and therefore this slows your website loading times affecting User Experience. Your customer will leave your website if it does not load within 3-5 Seconds which adversely affects your Sales. Therefore, it is important to Resize, Optimize & Compress your Images before using it on your Website. Here are some Tips which might come handy in optimizing images:

    • Resize your Images: Resize your Images before using it on your Website. Do not just Download an Image & place it as it is in your Website's <img> Tag without resizing it. The size/resolution of the Image matters since it is not recommended to use an Image size of 1200px x 800px in a Content Size of 300px x 200px as this unnecessary. Resize it to 300px x 200px
    • Image Formats: There are three common file types that are used for web images which are JPEG, GIF, & PNG. For images with a Flat Background use JPEG images, for images with a Transparent background use PNG images and for images with Animations use GIF images.
    • Compressing Images: Images Compression is important as it considerably reduces the size without losing the quality. There are several FREE Image Optimization Tools available to Download.
      For MAC use ImageOptim
      For Windows use Riot for compressing JPEG Images & PNG Gauntlet for PNG Images.
  • CSS & jQuery Minifications

    It is also recommended that you Combine & Minify all your CSS Files to a single CSS File & all Javascript Files to a single JS File since Minification reduces the size of the File and Combining the files helps in reducing the number of HTTP requests made to the server. This is also an Important Factor in increasing the speed of your website. There are several tools available online to Minify your CSS & JS Files. Our recommendations are:
    For CSS use CSS Minifier and For Javascript use Javascript Minifier.

  • Content Delivery Network

    You can use a CDN to further speed up your website. You can use the CDn to deliver static files of your website like CSS, JS, Images & Font Files. There are several CDN Hosting Providers available on the Internet but we would recommend MaxCDN or CloudFlare. Note: CDN setup requires Extra monthly Fees to setup, so it is completely optional & according to your needs.

  • Fast Web Hosting Servers

    A lot depends on your Web Hosting Servers, so it is recommended that you choose a Hosting Company/Server that provides a Reliable & a Fast Hosting Service. You can check out some recommended Hosting Services here: http://themeforest.net/get_hosting.

Header Types

You can choose between 2 Types of headers while creating your Pages. Simply adding the Header Type CSS class to the Header Element will activate the Header Type. The list of Header Type Classes & its descriptions are provided below for your reference:

Type Class Features Code Example
Default [.bt-header] Header with Burger Menu and with Menu.
