Hello everyone…This is the first post in the new “Freebies” category and I want to celebrate this by offering you something original and special.I`m giving away a free “Site Under Construction” Template ,to use it whenever you have a new website to launch or a re-design of your old website,or for anything else.

This template is a simple one page “Under Construction” template that allows you to keep your users informed,while you work at your website.The template has a jQuery slider containing 3 slides:one with your social pages,like Twitter or Facebook,one with a subscribe-by-mail form and another one with an area for writing what you do.I thing it`s very useful.Now you have to convince yourself of its functionality.

Main features of the Template

  • jQuery Countdown Script-thanks to Keith Wood.
  • Valid PHP e-mail subscription form-thanks to Abraham Soria from MetaMindVisual
  • jQuery Slider
  • .PSD File included

  • You may not claim intellectual and exclusive ownership to the template.
  • Do not provide the direct download link nor upload the template onto other servers for your own share. If you want to spread the words, just link to this article.
  • You may use it for your clients’ projects / websites.Unlimited number of projects.
  • In one word,you may use it as you want,but be a nice guy and remember me :) !

To set up the countdown, all you have to do is to open index.html and locate the jquery countdown function which is between lines 14 and 20.

$(function () {
var austDay = new Date("December 10, 2012 02:15:00");
    $('#defaultCountdown').countdown({until: austDay, layout: '{dn} {dl}, {hn} {hl}, {mn} {ml}, and {sn} {sl}'});

Just change the date with your own date.

Update: WordPress version available!

I recently created the WordPress version of the template to celebrate the beginning of a new chapter in my life as a wordpress developer: DeliciousThemes , a place where you`ll find and get Premium WordPress Themes ,accompanied with a great support team.

The theme is compatible with WordPress 3.3+ and has a great control panel .You don`t have to modify the code.All you need is inside the panel.

So,check out the Wp version too and thank me later :) :

    Installing Theme from uploaded file:

    Unpacking the package…

    Installing the theme…

    The package could not be installed. The style.css stylesheet doesn’t contain a valid theme header.

    Theme install failed.

    please don’t play with people……..

  • Andy

    Thanks for this! It’s almost exactly what I was after.I have one question however.Where do I edit the social media links?Currently (obviously) the Twitter,Facebook,Stumbler etc links are images,but when I add the code to make them link to valid accounts,they disappear??

    Other than this,it’s a lovely ‘plate.

      The place to edit them is inside index.html. In fact, all content is there. Just replace the “#” and everything should work fine.
