Customize your Storenvy store html and css

UPDATE! This tutorial was written for the old Storenvy theme so not all changes will work for the new default Cooper theme.

You can also find premade Storenvy themes in my design shop.

Storenvy is great place to open up a shop because it’s free and you can customize your own store design. The default shop uses very clean css and html and is real easy to change.

Below you’ll find a tutorial on how to edit some basics, using css and html. Make a backup of your code before editing by going to your Storenvy dashboard > Design > Current Theme > Download Files.

————————————————————————————————————-
1. CSS – CHANGE STYLE OF PRODUCTS TITLE
————————————————————————————————————-
A. In the Storenvy dashboard go to Design > Edit styles > CSS mode
B. Find the h2#title { } code and replace it with the following code. This code removes the border at the bottom. Change the size of the font by changing 18px to a smaller or larger number.

h2#title {
color: #777777;   /*: Page Title :*/
border-bottom: none;
font-weight:normal;
font-size: 18px;
background-color: #FFFFFF; /*: Page Title Background :*/
}

Tutorial: Fix broken blogger template designer

A while back I wanted to change my blog design and found my template designer was not working anymore. I thought I had broken it by editing the html and css. So I started from scratch and installed a standard blogger template but found it was still not responding.

I googled this and googled it some more and found many more bloggers having the same problem but no fix. This drove me up the wall for a couple of weeks until I finally found the solution. It seems there is a bug in Blogger. When you disable the mobile template, like I did, it breaks the template designer. Simply turning it back on will not do the trick, you will also have to restore your template. I’m not sure this will work for everyone but here’s how I fixed it.

DIY: Heart bokeh

For the photo below I made my own heart shaped bokeh, it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I was a bit lazy and didn’t make a cap for the lens but simply held my cut-out in front of the lens.
I set my camera to manual mode and set my 50mm f1.8 lens to manual focus. If you use auto focus for this shot your camera will automatically focus on your christmas lights and you won’t get the pretty bokeh.
It was a little tricky trying to get the right exposure because the heart shaped cut-out blocked a lot of light, so I bumped up my ISO to 1600, and set my aperture to f2.0 and my shutterspeed to 1/30.
