    Hi, is there anything specific you want feedback with?

  3. Bea? Typically Your WordPress is for one site only. ;)

    I had to double check that both sites are actually running WordPress. They're both very clever and the transitions on your second site are really good.

    What did you do/use to create those relative URL references on your http://www.beacabrera.es/ site?

    Well, I didn't explain much because I was looking for a "first impression" hehe. I guess I would need to know how it feels like when you see either of them for fist time. You know, having watched the same page over and over again for weeks makes you lose a little perspective and you sometimes tend to forget the obvious like "hey, where's the name of the page??", and that kind of stuff.

    Design issues, any stuff not working properly, wordpress stuff that you would expect and is not there... perhaps ways of enhancing them? any plugins you might know that will provide something new and exciting? Any suggestions on menu enhancement? Perhaps it looks quirky in your browser... please tell me! (and also which browser ;) ).

    The first is the one I'm working on right now. The second is my personal one. Both of them are based on themes but heavily tuned.

    The monkey one is suposed to be clean and direct, with item portfolios opening on the same homepage reducing navigation to a minimum. Those were specifications.

    My own page has a front page from a non-wordpress theme that I have adapted as a wordpress theme template so that it actually retrieves information from the wordpress installed. The rest of it bares some resemblance but yes, as you say, the front page typically looks as a one site only because it is intended to be a one site presentation card. The rest of the website (blog and other stuff) will serve only for the curious and friends really. I know is not a clear page, I don't want it to be because I'm not that kind of a person... but is it too much? I don't want to fall on the opposite side either... aggg it's difficult for oneself to create their webpage!

    I'm sorry @Jan what is exactly what you're asking? I can look it up for you but I don't tink I fully understand the question.

    thanks guys!

    WOW - these sites are phenomenal! I really like your personal website how everything flows so smoothly.

    That happens to me a lot. I sometimes ask questions poorly. ;)

    When I look at the source for http://beacabrera.es/ I see references like so

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/the_loop/wp-content/themes/liquidfolio/cover/variation/css/flexslider.css" />

    Which is relative to your installation's URL as opposed to

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://beacabrera.es/the_loop/wp-content/themes/liquidfolio/cover/variation/css/flexslider.css" />

    Which are absolute. What I was wondering is if you've done that by hand or are using a plugin/functions.php file to generate those relative URLs.

    oh! I do it by hand. It is easier for me if I ever switch folders in my server to keep the references and avoid broken links. Sorry to disappoint! :s

    Thanks @jeffpearsonusa. I'm glad you liked them! Is there anything you would change?

    aloha,

    I love both your sites and how dynamic and multi-media centered they are, great overall presentation, colors, fonts and keeping your users engaged.

    On the Monkey site, only the twitter and vimeo social links are working - the others are just links to #

    Loved both of them! Your personal site however is more tasty to my buds.

    The left brain, right brain presentation is awesome. And I love your team. Adding the cat in their, very cool and creative. I think out of the box but wouldn't have thought of something like that with the cat. Cheers!
