Hi,

Unfortunately there is no way to put the controls on the top of the screen, you can zoom out your browser screen to make the whole template fit into the display.
Regarding the video with the voice, we are now not sure about recording tutorials with the voice as not all our users do understand English and that's really a complicated task to record the video with different audio levels including different languages.
In any case, there are several videos showing how to create the HTML template and you can ask about some points that are not clear directly here.

You can find some tutorials in the examples from the link below.

I think 70% of population understand English so you can make the video OK not in audio at least can make one video start till end covering everything or PDF file with pictures showing step by step. Once you make one video then others users will start making videos in their languages.

Thanks I have manage to do the zoom. And can see all its small but OK.

Hi,

I'm not sure I understand your question completely. Please explain in more details what theme you want to delete. If that is a theme in the My Themes tab in your BillionDigital account, then simply hover over the theme and the delete icon will appear in the right bottom corner of the template preview.

Hi,

There is no such option. You will need to upload the video on some hosting beforehand and then embed it in the template. The easiest way is to upload the video to YouTube and then simply use the Video Control in Themler.
Why you do not want to upload the video in YouTube?

Dear Hella,
Cause I want to design websites for schools and some other so for safeguarding children you can not put video on you tube and others. So I need that option, so if you can add this option it will be fantastic. Plus another suggestions to add things like Pictures albums, login redirect, and calendar with event options.

Hello,
actually you may embed other video into your theme which is stored on your server, but it requires a bit different solution.
You may consider adding video via shortcode as described in the article
http://answers.themler.com/articles/3622/video-shortcode

Or add video using <video> tag, as described at http://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_video.asp

About other options:
Pictures albums
It depends how you'd like to output them. You may consider using Themler Slider control to list images. Or create a gallery with the help of Joomla plugins. In the last case the galleries are created on Joomla admin back end.

login redirect
The login redirect is not handled by Themler. You may consider using one of Joomla extensions or follow article like this one
https://docs.joomla.org/How_do_you_redirect_users_after_a_successful_login%3F

Calendar
Calendar should be added on Joomla admin with the help of special extensions.

regards,
Aileen

Aileen,

The method you described, and as outlined in the referenced pages, does NOT work.
In brief, what the references describe is exactly what Themler uses for videos if I'm designing the "page" within Themler. If I'm designing a "page" within Themler, the code appears in the (Joomla) Articles > "page_name".
If I do anything to edit the code directly in the article (page), it has no effect.

The option that "may" work is to add the code to a Joomla position. But, in the Themler template I've designed for that page (where I want the video), it's not possible to "Insert" a Joomla position into "Article:"
Each time I attempt to insert a Joomla position into the "Column" where I currently have and need the video, Themler automatically moves the Joomla position into the CMS area.
If I try to move the position it will not allow me to reset the position to the "Article:" area.

So I'm right back to the beginning where I'm asking, HOW can I insert a video that will loop?
All of this is really odd since the "only" thing that Themler won't do with a video is allow it to loop - unless one uploads the video to YouTube or Vimeo - which I'm NOT going to do. The video "must" reside on the server where the Web site exists. I need to embed the video, but as you can see from all of the above, that's not possible.

When will Themler have coding added that will allow the video to loop?
That's all that's missing in the method that Themler already has to add a video where desired.

Because the design is very complicated, it's not possible to use Joomla as it's designed because the "Article" pages need to have extensive code to allow for a fluid design.
I'm left with creating a template for the one page and not using the Joomla "Article" for anything other than a placeholder.

If you need to see the work in progress you'll need to move this portion of this thread into "Private" and I can send you the link.

The bottom line is, simply add code in Themler to loop a video that's NOT on YouTube (or anywhere outside the Web site database.

Thanks.
Tom
