Free Under Construction XHTML/CSS Template

Advertisement

Design Informer loves to give away freebies and resources. This is our first freebie from the Design Informer. By the way, there will be many more to come. It is an under construction website template that has space for a logo, a twitter stream, contact information, other websites, and portfolio links.

This was my old Under Construction page for Jad Graphics1 but I only ended up using it for a week because I finished the main site right away.

How to Customize the Template

Here are just a few things that you can do to fully customize the template. You can also change the colors schemes as well in the CSS file. I have also included the PSD file so you can add your own logo.

  1. Open up Logo.psd and paste your logo. Save this as logo.jpg inside the images folder.
  2. Open up the HTML file. Change the site title, the keywords and description.
  3. Change the inside of the h1 tag to your site name.
  4. Replace all the content with your own.
  5. To add your twitter stream, just look for this code:
    http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/jadgraphics.json?callback=twitterCallback2&count=3
    Replace jadgraphics with your twitter username. Under count=3, you can change 3 to the number of recent tweets that you want to show.

    Hi Jad,

    I am ramesh…I saw your template, it really nice design. I am willing to make it up on mentioned domain for few days….I tried using your script for twitter posts, but I am not able to see my page updating..is it needed to put my page online onto a server? Coz I am trying to run the html page on my machine itself.

    I would appreciate if you could kindly help me out resolving this issue or else would be delighted if I can have facebook profile badge instead…i tried doing it too but it appears somewhere in the corner of the page….

    Awaiting response..

    Thank you,
    Ramesh
