Official Template Repository
« on: March 09, 2006, 06:25:42 PM »
As a replacement for my template showcase, an official template repository has been set up at
http://addons.WebsiteBaker.org/templates/

You can preview and download templates for WebsiteBaker there.

This site is managed by Matthias (ruebenwurzel), Woudloper and Klaus (kweitzel).
If you want your template showcase there, please send a mail with your zip file attached to one of them.

As soon as the addons repository is complete, a formal announcement will be made.

Nice to see it become official. Wouldn't it be nice to also put an image of the template on the site.
Now you have to preview every design to see if it fit your needs. Maybe some additional info, for example number of contentblocks or columns.

I have my templates on my own site so i can see the stats. How many times it's downloaded etc. Can something be done like on http://www.oswd.org and http://www.openwebdesign.org.

Very good initiative! But what is the difference between the official template repository and the completed templates section?? Is it not better to have one section for templates?

The addons repository is meant to replace the "Completed" sections.

Good idea. Just to be complete. When i have a quick look there are a few of PeterM missing (it is hard to keep up with him i know): andreas09, cloudy, mamboportal, fluidity, bluesky and K2. On Peter's site there is some kind of documentation called "road to conversion". Maybe it is a good idea to add this to the documentation section.

yeah i think its a great idea to include his conversion document, i use it all the time. Its actually possible to break that down aswell into sections rather than stating what was changed in the template.

It would look so much nicer, in my opinion, if is was titled as displayed. For example:

<b>How to add a search:</b>

Code:
Only registered users can see contents. Please click here to Register or Login.and so on.. that way people can simply cut and paste what they want.. :) the features of the WebsiteBaker tagging would be helpful too like:

Code:
Only registered users can see contents. Please click here to Register or Login.this is defined in the admin section at .........

see my point? :) great work PeterM though...

@jschor

Hello, at the addons page we have at the moment only the Templates from stefans site and the on from the completed templates. There are a lot mor templates in the forum (the one from PeterM you post and a few more). I will look at the weekend to hopefully download all this templates and test if they are ok to release on the addons page. Saw that some templates have wrong zip structure and in some info.php's needs to be mor informations.

I also plan to write o short descreption for the template developpers, what they have to do to get their templates shown on the addons page.

My conversion document was just a forum topic, to let people see what sometimes need to be changed to make a template for WB. I will try to make a better and real document about making templates for WB.

OK ... kibmcz ... changes are made.

@all:
When I uploaded some of the templates, I realised, that they where zipped the wrong way. The ZIP-File had a folder with the template name in the root and in there where the files. Please make shure (also for unexperienced users, who test your template for their site, befor it is posted in the rpository) that you zip the content of the folder and not the folder (btw, saves us some work as well  :-D)

cheers

Is there any way to alphabetize the list? Or organize into categories based on layout?

Can you add "what's your solution" to the list? (it was there before).

http://www.robcomm.net/pages/downloads.php

I like how the list is alphabetized!
