Does anyone know skins with a user-friendly UI to manage the page content, specially for effects like parallax backgrounds, flip boxes, carousels, and all the other special effects that modern websites MUST have today?
I had a closer look to several skins in the DNN store, and some of them have a basic admin UI to set up colors, fonts, etc., but when I want to create a flip box or a carousel, I'll have to enter plain HTML, with lots of DIVS and CSS classes, into the source view of an HTML editor! I think this is very user-unfriendly, and there should by an easier way for this, specially for end-users without HTML knowledge!
So my question: does anyone know skins that have a UI to edit the special effects?
Yes you are totally right. It is a must have and offering an HTML module is not the way to go.
Most of us will use some form of structured content module for this like 2SXC (https://github.com/2sic/2sxc/releases) or OpenContent (https://github.com/sachatrauwaen/OpenContent/releases). So, not a skin but a module that allows you to take code snippets of the skin and offer editors just a couple of fields to manage the content.
To give an idea of how you could setup a bootstrap card in 2SXC, you can watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDz...2&t=6s
