A few WB-powered sites...
« on: July 06, 2007, 02:42:52 PM »
A portfolio site for my wife: http://www.lazypie.com/romy/

A design site almost ready to launch: http://www.deusdesigns.com/

The 14th Minute, another site almost ready to launch: http://www.14thminute.com/

My first WB site, a World of Warcraft theme: http://www.orbitalhq.com/w/

A community site for my neighborhood: http://www.saltcreeklanding.com (not a whole lot of my work there, just some image customization)


Just thought I'd share a little. ;)

Nice stuff...

the portfolio site... this is a pet-peeve of mine so take it for what it's worth.. but I hate layouts that shift right to left all the time when the scroll bar comes and goes. With your background, you may want to give it a set left margin so the page always lays across the graphic of the woman the same.

Dues is pretty slick... is the menu hard-coded, or did you do it using show_menu or show_menu2?

14th minute - I like that! - dang.. I had a notebook page style theme on my to-do list and you beat me to it. heh. The forums posting on the bottom of the main page, did you write the code to pull those out? I was going to do that for my paintball site and haven't gotten around to it... care to share?

Ah, good suggestion. I think I will implement that!

The menu on Deus, up at the top... it's hard-coded. There WILL be a dynamic menu on the site, but it will be part of the "content" and not the header.

No, I didn't write it; since I'm using the SMF Forums on the site, they have this "SSI" stuff that will allow you to do exactly that. The home page for 14thMinute has four sections: WYSYWIG, News, WYSYWIG, and Code.  The code section is this:

Code: [Select]
echo "<hr><div class='forumview' align='center'>Latest forum posts</div>";

 require_once("forum/SSI.php");
 
 ssi_recentTopics();

And that handles the latest forum posts. Really, it's that simple.

It's not a mod, it's something they built into the forums. You ALREADY have that functionality, you just need to get it integrated with your site.

Now here are some very fresh looking sites! Well done. I specially like 14minutes and lazypie. Shows that shared templates can turn into something unique after redesigning.
Keep on baking and sharing.
