Migration from CE4 to Backlight completed

I completed the migration of my CE4 site to Backlight. The few issues I encountered during migration were already explained somewhere in the forum. I love the new architecture of Backlight compared to the previous plugin concept of CE4; the workflow has significantly improved. Thank you, guys!

Cool! I like the multicolor masthead on the gray background.

Thanks. In CE4 I had my homepage outside the package as a separate html file. Now in Backlight it was no deal to create such a page within the module.

Re: Migration from CE4 to Backlight completed

I like the "menu" you created on your home page! It looks good on my iPad but breaks down a bit on my iPhone 6 (three icons on one row, one icon beneath).
You could probably remedy this by placing the "menu" in the TTG responsive grid and perhaps some custom styling.
You could try a two column grid, placing the first two links in the left column and the last two in the right column. When the site goes responsive, the grid will reform with the left column (and its two items) on top and the right column (with its two items) beneath.

Re: Migration from CE4 to Backlight completed

Rod, you are absolutely right. I noticed that the icons do not wrap very nicely on small screens like phones. It is my limited knowledge of object wrapping, but I am studying  the theory of floating blocks and will take your suggestion to improve.

Or a simple code change: Just define the width of the icons as 24% instead of 100px. Then the icons just scale enough to fit the smaller screen.

Rod's proposal is nicer, but this gets the job done in a few seconds.
