Usage, Extension and Personalization
of Strata Three

Minimal Usage

Basic usage requires the custom Bootstrap and Strata files (CSS in the head, JS before the closing HTML). You may further minify these or call them directly from

/* Head */
<link href="//" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_/s3/css/bootstrap.min.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_/s3/css/strata.min.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_/s3/css/print.css" media="print">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="">

/* Footer */
<script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_/s3/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_/s3/js/strata.min.js"></script>

Extending Strata Three

Additional files are included for styling the features and sliders found in the Design Patterns section of this site. You may opt to use custom feature and slider code. Refer to the next section for recommended placement.

/* Head */
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_/s3/css/extend/strata-flexslider.min.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_/s3/css/extend/strata-features.min.css">

/* Footer */
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_/s3/js/extend/jquery.flexslider.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_/s3/js/extend/jquery.easing.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_/s3/js/extend/modernizr.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_/s3/js/extend/flexslider.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_/s3/js/extend/strata-carousel.min.js"></script>


Additional background are available by extension. Please refer to Code Library: Backgrounds for usage.

/* Head */
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_/s3/css/extend/strata-backgrounds-rs.min.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_/s3/css/extend/strata-backgrounds-saw.min.css">

Image Blocks

Additional image block styles are available by extension. Please refer to Code Library: Blocks for usage.

/* Head */
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_/s3/css/extend/strata-blocks.min.css">


Block shape styles are available by extension. Please refer to Code Library: Shapes for usage.

/* Head */
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_/s3/css/extend/strata-shapes.min.css">

Personalization: Title and Navigation Locations

The site title is duplicated in order to accomodate the fixed header while navigation is duplicated for better mobile and desktop usage.

Site Title: #fsu-top and #fsu-title; Site Navigation: nav.fsu-nav-global and #fsu-nav-primary

Site Title: #fsu-top
<div id="fsu-top" class="col-xs-7 col-sm-8 hidden small text-uppercase"><p><a href="">FSU</a> | <a href="/">Web Style Guidelines and Resources</a></p></div>

Site Title: #fsu-title
<h1 id="fsu-title"><a href="/">Web Style Guidelines and Resources</a></h1>

Site Navigation: nav.fsu-nav-global (first instance)
<nav class="fsu-nav-global">
... navigation ...

Site Navigation: #fsu-nav-primary
<div id="fsu-nav-primary" class="s3-c s3-scored s3-b-b0">
	<div class="navbar text-center" role="navigation">
		... navigation ...

Personalization: File Location

Recommended placement of custom code is within /_/local/. This style guide uses the following structure for its files:

  ├── css/
  │   ├── strata-styleguide.css
  │   └── strata-styleguide.min.css
  └── js/
      ├── strata-styleguide.js
      └── strata-styleguide.min.js

Local resource calls are after Strata Three's calls:

/* Head */
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_/local/css/strata-styleguide.min.css">

/* Footer */
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_/local/js/strata-styleguide.min.js"></script>

Personalization: Fixed Header

This package includes code for a fixed header when you scroll past the header using a browser wider than 767px.
The default height of 164px (based on may need to be adjusted to meet your site's needs.

body.add-fixed {margin-top:164px}

Find the height in px of your website's <header> and replace the number value (add this to your site specific css file.) You may need to adjust the margin-top value at each of the different breakpoints

body.add-fixed {margin-top:164px}
@media screen and (max-width:991px) and (min-width:768px) { /* sm */
	body.add-fixed {
		margin-top:231px; /* height of <header> */
@media screen and (min-width:992px) { /* md -lg */
	body.add-fixed {
		margin-top:190px; /* height of <header> */
