Any preferences regarding a CMS? I know Joomla has some 3rd party plugins like ZOO or K2 which would help you create something like this. Also, you could try using a e-commerce theme: I know e.g. woocommerce has a ‘catalog-mode’, so it will hide all Cart-functionalities.
Aiaiai, a ‘mile-wide’ tornado. Insane. Really can’t imagine seeing that, as an European. Stay safe over there, god bless you.
Spacing is key! Add some more whitespace between the text. (CSS: line-height) For 14px text, a line height of ±22px-24px looks good, most of the times.
Guys, I’ve found a great developer already. But, thank you all so much for your interest in my project!
@CFXd Thanks man, really appreciate it!
@mustachethemes Haha, to be honest, I have no idea how to use programs like After Effects and stuff. This video was created with Keynote, a ‘presentation’ app from Apple. You can do some nice things pretty easy. If you set all animation to ‘automatic’, you can export your presentation to a .mov file.
Thanks again, have an awesome weekend! Robbert
I’m kinda new here, so.. Hi! I’m a graphic / web designer, currently studying Multimedia design. Because of some free time I have at the moment, I decided to design a theme for Themeforest. I started designing a portfolio/grid theme last week, and I would love to hear your opinion. It’s a really clean design, focused on the freelancers’ work. It has a large slider on the frontpage, making the theme interesting for web agencies too. (Since a full grid isn’t really commercially attractive for larger agencies.)Made a little video, so you can get the idea. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9R1B6FED-w
Since I don’t have the skills to develop a (responsive?) HTML / Wordpress theme myself, I would love to collaborate with a developer. I can do the design and support and you can do the development.
If you aren’t interested, I’d still like to have your opinion about the design. Remember, it’s still at it’s very early stages.
I’d love to hear from you!
Cheers, Robbert, 94themes
I watched the live event last night with some friends. Really worth it, fun to watch. Weird that they didn’t show the actual device. Now I don’t know what will be underneath my TV this Christmas. So.. I guess we’re not only waiting for GTA V now, but on the PS4 too. Damn you, time, go faster!
” And the Ken Burns Dramatic Zoom ? For.The.Love.Of.All.That.Is.Good.PLEASE.No.”
Haha, this is so true. I wonder who ever came up with that, it’s terrible.
Thanks for the advise. I’m currently designing a portfolio-page, and will definitely keep these thing in mind.
The author says this in the ‘Handmade 2’ comments: “All Handmade One customers get a free upgrade to Handmade Two. Firstly you will need to sign up for a free account at http://www.obox-design.com, you will be taken to your profile area where you must input your purchase code (from Handmade One) found in your ThemeForest license certificate in the right side bar. Then send us an email via the contact form and we’ll get it taken care of for you.
That depends. In what format do you have the sample data?
Some authors provide a Quick Install package, so you can install Joomla + the theme + the data in one time. Others include a XML file, so you can import only the articles. However, I don’t think importing XML is a ‘standard’ functionality in Joomla 2.5 / 3.0, you will need a extension like J2XML Importer.
If a XML isn’t included, you could ask the author for one. However, if there’s a Quick Install package, I think you can copy the data from a SQL-file (?) in the ‘Installation’-folder and insert this in your SQL database. This, however, requires some knowledge.
Remember to always make back-ups before trying things. Good luck!
@pezflash Wow, I never knew that. Struggled with that for hours, drove me crazy. Thanks for the tip!
@Freshface Aaaah, never knew that Family Guy was based on that video. That’s awesome!
I’m learning things here!
