FAQs

What Are  Flamin’ Fig Theme Kits?

What Is The Sparkle App?

Are The Theme Kits Responsive?

A Flamin’ Fig theme kit is a complete, well thought out and efficient website build that covers a select number of business /industries that aim to get you noticed. The theme kit, as is, can be your website with a bit of editing and personalisation, or it can be a starting point for your own new website build.

The Sparkle App is a ‘breath of fresh air’ to the design community and to users with an eye for web design. More to the point, it’s a visual CMS that resides on your macOS allowing for  great security, efficiency, and ease of use. It’s backed by a team of dedicated developers providing regular updates, tweaks, and bug-fixes.

Yes, all our Flamin’ Fig theme kits are responsive  and suited for the desktop, tablet, and mobile screens. We work with what is called “adaptive design” where we have fixed-width breakpoints instead of “responsive design” which has fluid-width breakpoints.

How do they work?

Do I need the Sparkle App?

What is fixed-width responsive?

The theme kits are designed and styled to a theme which, when opened with the Sparkle app, allows you to edit, swap out the content  and further personalise all while on your macOS. When done, you upload (publish) to your preferred hosting provider.

Yes, to use your newly purchased Flamin’Fig theme kit you will need the Sparkle App to open it, to place your content, and to personalise the visuals. The app is a one-off purchase.

Our Flamin’ Fig theme kits  is set to three common breakpoints (mobile, tablet, and desktop) so, for example, when you view your website on a smartphone you are served up the mobile version of your website . It makes loading time much faster.

Can I personalise the theme kits?

How is the Sparkle App different?

Do they work on modern mobile devices?

Yes you can and quite liberally at that. You can add your text content, swap out the images, add video, remove page(s) or add page(s), work your SEO, add your instagram account. You can even further personalise the mobile layout… whatever you want.

It’s in a league of its own! It’s a free-form visual canvas that resides on your macOS. The beauty of it is that there is no code to touch - Sparkle generates all the code that makes up your website which you then publish to your host with a push of one button!

All our Falmin’ Fig theme kits run on any modern device ranging from the varied sized smartphones, to the tablet formats, and the small to very large desktop screens.

Is The Sparkle App Like A CMS?

How Do I Make My Website Live?

Does Sparkle Have Widgets Or Plugins?

It totally is! It’s a CMS that resides on your macOS computer where you can make changes and preview it in your browser before you even hit the publish button. Not only that, it is secure and generates clean web page HTML  / CSS / javascript and stays away from server-side script that hackers love.

Your Flamin’ Fig theme kit file works with the Sparkle App on your macOS desktop so even if you don’t have internet you are still able to work on your website project. Once you have completed your site you connect it with your hosting server and hit “publish”. The Sparkle App does the rest.

No, and although widgets and plugins expand programs such as Adobe Muse beyond their framework  they also cause headaches and issues and require constant updates. Sparkle, on the other hand, allows you to embed code snippets to extend your theme kit. This is far more reliable and secure.

Can I edit my website in the Sparkle App?

How do I publish my website?

How can I extend my website functions?

Yes you can edit just about everything! You can edit the text, your can edit your font-family, the theme kit colours, edit or replace the images, remove pages, add pages, etc… You name it and it can be edited.

Does the Sparkle App sit in the cloud (server)?

Once you’re done with your website project you hit the “publish” button and the Sparkle App turns your website to code and uploads it to your hosting server, making it live to the online world.

How Secure Is The Sparkle App?

You can do this by embedding code snippets that you acquire on the internet (e.g.Disqus). Once you embed the (Disqus) snippet into your Flamin’ Fig template you end up with  an integrated comments platform - simple!

Does the Sparkle App have a blog function?

No, your Sparkle App will sit solely on your macOS computer and the only connection it will have with the cloud / hosting server is via the publish button - it is totally secure and you own your website!

It is far more secure than your traditional online CMS driven websites such as WordPress. For the most part, your generated website is HTML/CSS/javascript with hardly any server side script and is therefore far less tempting for hackers!

With the recent release of Sparkle3, Sparkle has now a “baked-in” blog system allowing for blogging as an addition or as the main purpose of your website.

Is Sparkle App Similar To Adobe Muse?

SEO Is Important - Is Sparkle Up To It?

Yes there are similarities, but the big differences are: the intuitive app layout, the absolute non-touching of code, and the outright stability and speed that Adobe Muse could never offer to its users!

Add the passionate and professionalTeam behind Sparkle and you have an overall superior product .

It sure is! Once your website is live, the need to further fine-tune the SEO is an important element of having people find you online and this is so easy via the Sparkle App.  Sparkle generated websites rank well because they have been built from the ground up with SEO practices baked-in for search engines.

How long has the Sparkle App been around?

Can I improve my SEO with the Sparkle App?

The Sparkle App has been around since 2014 and has gone through a number of iterations and developments to make it what it is today! A fantastic visual no-code CMS!

Yes, the Sparkle App has a number of elements and attributes allowing you to improve your SEO such as selecting your site’s language,  connecting to Google Local Business, adding sharing, Google Analytics.

How can I get help with my Sparkle App?

Does Sparkle cover a range of SEO tactics?

The Sparkle Team are eager, perceptive and knowledgeable; they are keen to answer questions or help in any way they can. The team at Flamin’ Fig are also very adept with the app so you can equally ask us for help or assistance.

Yes. You can  approve website ownership, add your Instagram account, generate a sitemap, add alt and title tags, optimise your images, customise page names, the list goes on… Sparkle3 now also has a SEO assistant baked-in.
