Naming Container ID’s

We suggest that you use the existing naming conventions and ID's that have already been established in the default templates. You can replace ID's with your own structure if you are confident with CSS and HTML.

 

 

Example

 

cC – eg; “Copyright”

cH – eg; “Header”

Typical Container ID's

 

Within your Template file you do not have to reference all the Container ID’s listed, only the ones where a functional module is required.

 

The following table outlines Containers that are possibly used within the Default files and their corresponding ID’s together with a Module that is typically used in each Container.

Extra non-functional DIV’s can be added to the Template file and associated CSS file, purely for design purposes (rather than functional purposes) to replicate your proposed design visuals.
