Hi Greg, I had a similar issue with a web forms intranet application. I decided on purchasing a ready-made bootstrap theme to do the styling work for me - https://wrapbootstrap.com/theme/inspinia-responsive-admin-theme-WB0R5L90S.

I have previously suffered from the terrible problem where I spend more time on formatting and stying than I do on coding. Sometimes it can take 1 hour to get a single web page working, then it takes 4 hours to make it look nice. I thought I'd try Bootstrap this time to ease the burden of styling, but now I'm wasting more time learning all the conventions and quirks of Bootstrap. This is typical, I find if you decide to use some "kit" then you usually have to become an expert in that kit. The answer to this problem is to split the development into (1) coding (2) styling. I have done this twice before, over 10 years ago ... I write a completely working web site with only the bare minimum formatting and styles, then later someone comes along and styles it beautifully. Is anyone still doing this sort of thing? What do others do to style their sites with minimum suffering? Finally ... Is there anyone in this group who is a styling boffin and might take a short contract in several weeks time to style my app once it's near completion? I guess it might be several hours work spread out over a few days. If you can help, please email me off-list at gfke...@gmail.com<mailto:gfke...@gmail.com>, or phone on 0419-113-543.
