Hi guys! I have another recent thread where I am picking the brains of you kind folks as to why I cannot get about 75% of HTML5 CSS3 templates to even properly open in either MS Expressions 4 or Bluegriffon (which is HTML 5 compatible(.
Of course, the old school non responsive templates operate and open fine, it is just the HTML 5.
I am rebuilding a 110 page commercial/authority static website, and Joomla was a disaster, causing many duplicate pages, bizarre dynamic pages, canonical issues, and scripting errors. So called experts to help me have caused more problems than solved. Plus the templates are just ugly and non flexible. They are too hard to modify.
So I just wanted to redo the whole thing in regular HTML, as to have control over my pages, site structure, and the creative.
It really seems the HTML 5 is far more trouble than it is worth, as I have been trying to work with this format for a week, and I cannot get the templates operational.
I would really like your opinion, as if I had just stuck to the pre HTML 5 design, the website would be mostly done by now, and I could design it so that it would be acceptable looking on laptops, as well was mobile devices, though it would not be "technically" responsive.
