Support » Everything else WordPress » Examples of sites heavily using Pages

  • Hey all, I’m looking for examples of wordpress sites that are heavily using the static pages to build a site – in contrast to the weblog.

    Thanks.

    The public side of 1.5.x is not overly different from that of 2.0.

    http://www.saynocasinos.com is almost all Pages, “The Latest” is the only part of the site that uses Posts.

    The site is completely run using WordPress. With the exception of image links, the entire site’s navigation is being generated dynamically.

    Interesting. Can someone point to more detail about how
    this navigation is accomplished in WordPress?

    Thanks, Roy

    Hi Roy – my guess is that they are just dumb a href links to the wordpress-produced pages using a nice perma-links structure, but I could be wrong. That is what we do at http://www.cadc.auburn.edu/soa anyway. In this site the only thing that is super-bloggy is the entry page; pretty much everything accessed via the menu structure (except for the news and a portion of the events topic) at the top goes to static pages that are built in wordpress. The sidebar menus for the static pages use the wordpress parent-child structure though, so that when we add pages to a menu item they automatically show up in the sidebar navigation.

    For starters we use wp_list_pages(). We also used wp_list_catagories() for “The Latest” (which is the only category in our Blog side of the site. There is also a custom call to the database to get the parent id of the Classic Lies sub-pages which is then spit into another wp_list_pages() tag to get the page siblings to put in the box on the right.

    All the “Facts” and Reference are done through Custom Fields with some plug-ins to help the formatting. All this extra work went into the site so that users who don’t know a thing about HTML can add multiple forms of content and the layout adjusts accordingly (such as if there are no “References” then that area won’t get drawn on the page).
