Include the ability to display social network links (optional) from 9 flavors: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Mastodon, Tik Tok, Dribbble, LinkedIn, GitHub and YouTube. Include a possibility to send e-mails with the use of the major online solutions (Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo! or local system) from a Modal Box.
Notice this important advice: do not forget to associate all your other specific sections (of your new theme in development) to the “Wait Me” theme. Otherwise, public access to inner pages (some may be predictable like a “
/contact” one) will be allowed for indiscretions.
Unzip the distribution and place the theme folder
wait-me into your
fonts folder (and its content) into your
/root/ directory (optional).
Version 2.4 (onward):
Upload an image of your choice from the Textpattern “Images” panel (dimensions: 350 × 500 px). This will be the image that is displayed with the main page; because Textpattern do not offer by default a simple method to support “Retina Display”, upload an alternate image copy of that image (2 x in sizes) into your
/images directory it must be named
1@2x with the same file extension as the one uploaded from the “Images” panel.
This theme use only 2 page models (
error_default) and only one form model:
config form is used to store all informations to customise your maintenance website from TXP variables. Set it accordingly to your needs (all variables are commented).
Upload an image of your choice, that must be named
0, into your
/root/images directory (dimensions: 350 × 500 px). This will be the image that is displayed with the main page; set the extension image file with the corresponding TXP variable into the pages. To support the “Retina Display” screens, please download the same image of twice the size and named
0@2x with the same file extension.
The theme use only 2 pages: “default” and “error_default” where you could find some TXP variables to set accordingly to your needs. Finaly, activate it.
Note: the email address for the contact feature is grabbed from the one set as the administrator of your website.
