This is the default BlackCandy theme, but changed with HTML5 tags.

  • The JQuery JavaScript library is included by default in this template.
  • The ideas of this template were based on HTML5 boilerplate site.
  • For the license, use the same license at Silverstripe and such BSD would be the better choice. (http://silverstripe.org/bsd-license/#bsd)


If you have any issue with the template, please contact me at hugues.lamy@m2i3.com
