Using WP 2.1 as a CMS (19 posts)

    This site is being put together using WP 2.1 as a CMS rather than a blog. I have created my theme to suit the sites needs and is quite specific to the site.

    Anyway, enjoy and please bear in mind it is still work in progress.

    Cheers!

    Looks very "designer corporate" which I guess is the style you need for such a site so that is good.

    Only prob is that the banner/footer at the bottom of the page isn't fixed. I have a wide screen monitor so the banner is over to the right of all the other content.

    Very nice site... doesn't look like a WordPress template.
    Again Nice!

    How did you remove "category" from the URL?

    http://www.insideout-dzine.com/additional_services/ instead of
    http://www.insideout-dzine.com/category/additional_services/

    @web
    Those are pages not categories.

    You can hackishly remove the category by setting the base to '/.' (sometimes you have to set it to './'). This can cause some conflicts though if you have pages with the same name as the category.

    I started with the Classic theme that ships with 2.1. And then just hacked away. I did remove a lot of code as I didn't need things like comments, dates, times etc.

    Think about sharing it. It's good.

    @glabaw, thanks for the compliment, when I get a chance I will strip it down and make it available.

    Tidied up the template some more and improved the CSS. Also there is more content there now which hopefully demonstrates how truly flexible WP 2.1 is.

    Loving WP more every day!

    So, ready to share yet?

    BTW, on top page the graphics appear to be links but at least FF doesn't go anywhere.

    @cybernorris, I will share the template just as soon as I have finalised it and I am 100% happy with it.

    Thanks for pointing out the links issue, this is now fixed :-)

    The site looks amazing. You've put a lot of work into it, you can tell. I viewed your site using IE 6 with the script error alerts turned on. There were several javascript errors on page load. Just a heads up...

    Hello nice work!
    I want to know what kind of plugins you are using for the wp-cms. I'm searching for some informations which plugins are ok, and which ones are obsolete. There are too many plugins with the search "cms" :( Thanks for replies.

    -Dagon Design Form Mailer
    -Google Sitemaps
    -ImageManager
    -WP lightbox JS

    Hope this helps!

    I love it, it looks fantastic. I am looking to set up a WP blog for my sister in laws company as well and would love it if you made your version of this theme available. :)
