How to use certain features and navigate ChristFirstClothing.Com.
There are three noteworthy features on this website:

Simple Links
Mouse-over Effects
Images

Simple Links: These links are distinguished by their appearance. Most links on this site look something like this: samplelink. They’re generally color-matched to match the color or theme of a particular page– just as the sample link above matches the theme of this page. By clicking on a link, you can be directed to a different page, email client or another site– depending on the context in which the link is described or being used.

Homepage Links: In the middle of the homepage, the titles on the LEFT (not the images on the RIGHT) are the actual links to their respective corresponding pages. You must click on the title to view its page and remaining content.

Mouse-over Effects: Mouse-overs look identical to links and may or may not have a link attached to it. Unlike Simple Links, however, the mouse-overs display additional information about the link, image or field its affixed to. A mouse-over example is included below. You must hold your mouse’ cursor or arrow over the word to view the mouse-over effect:

With a link attached: samplemouse-over
Without a link attached: samplemouse-over

Mobile Devices and Tablets: A key drawback to viewing this site and many other sites that use mouse-over functionality on a mobile device or tablet is: the mouse-over feature does not work.

Images: Most images on this website can be enlarged by simply clicking it. All enlarged images should appear in a new browser window. If it does not, please click here or the “cf admin” name at the top of each page and let us know.
