If you purchased an Enhanced Signaure Theme, you will complete this Rivendell worksheet and complete an additional Enhanced worksheet. This Rivendell worksheet will serve as the project base.
Once the Rivendell theme is customized for your organization, the site colors are part of the design and are not editable through the CMS site manager. Rivendell can use up to three colors.
If you have a logo that uses your branding colors, we strongly recommend that you allow us to brand the site based on your logo colors. Choose the first option below - "Use my logo for site colors/branding."
Rivendell requires a transparent white logo for the homepage. If your organization is not able to provide a logo that meets these requirements, our design team will try to create a version for you. In the event that the logo file cannot be converted easily, we will typeset your organization name for the homepage and provide information and options with your first set of design proofs.
Internal pages require a horizontal logo. If your organization is not able to provide a horizontal version, our design team will try to create one for you. In the event we cannot create one for you, we will typeset your organization name on the internal header.
Logo files must be high resolution PNG, EPS or JPG files. Transparent PNG or EPS files are preferred. Provide logos through your Basecamp project.
Rivendell supports a minimum of 2 categories and a maximum of approximately 60 characters/spaces or 8 categories (whichever comes first) for it's main navigation. The exact amount of space varies with each unique combination of lettering. We will work to accommodate your requested navigation.
In the box below, please enter your navigation categories in order using a comma in between to indicate a new category. (Example: Welcome, About Us, Community, Donate.)
In addition to the main navigation, Rivendell features utility navigation in the upper right hand corner. The links will use the Links List tool and will be editable by you. There is the ability to add a maximum of 5 links with up to 15 characters each. Placeholder text will be used in the design proofs.
If you would like a search box that searches your site, you'll need to setup a Google account and Google Custom Search for your organization's domain name.
The slideshow images feature an overlay with a headline and caption. The position of the text, as well as the style is not client editable. If you do not want the text to appear on your image, simply leave the headline, caption and link fields empty on that slide. The images for your slideshow are editable through the CMS site manager.
The headline text is editable with a maximum of 30 characters.
The caption text is editable with a maximum of 170 characters.
The homepage slideshow can have up to 8 active slides at a time to ensure quick load time. We recommend keeping the number of active slides to 5 or less.
You also have the ability to use a video in place of your slideshow tool. The video does not include a headline or text.
There are up to two buttons in the slideshow/hero video area of the homepage. The text and links on these buttons are client editable. The button text can have a maximum of 15 characters. Placeholder text will be used in the design proofs. The position and style of the buttons are not client editable and are a set element of this theme. If you wish not to use the buttons, you will have the ability to remove the link for the button in the site manager.
Rivendell features a text section below the slideshow/hero video section that includes a headline, text and two buttons. The headline, text and buttons are all client editable. The two buttons allow for a maximum of 15 characters each. The layout and style of the section is not editable.
