So I went a little WordPress crazy and built 4 sites in the past few months. Like them or not I think that for a novice they are decent sites.
I’m going to list them all here rather than clutter this board. All feedback is welcome – but especially critical feedback. Does something not look right? Did I miss something? Do they look like crap on your browser? I’d love to hear about it!
More than anything, I’d just like to thank everyone on this forum that ever took the time to help me out!
Art Gallery site with over 150 artists and about 2000 images so far. I use a custom Zenphoto theme for the gallery and Mimbo for the site. It’s plug-in heavy and has useful but common features such as a rotating logo and banner and NextGen sidebar thumbs.
Very basic political image site. After spending a lot of time on the two sites above I felt like I needed a place to post images that I came across – without any commentary or words. Each image is intended to spark a debate. Some have. Most haven’t. All of the navigation is done through tags.
I’m moving toward simplicity and ease in web sites and was very attracted to the Barecity theme which I used for this site.
This is a philosophy blog. I built it for my wife to use as a resource for her students. We maintain it together. Again, I use Zenphoto in the video gallery and a heavily customized Firebug theme for the rest. This site was my first attempt at going deeper with typography and CSS.
Like I said, I was a total beginner going into making these sites. I know that some of you think that a site is never truly your own accomplishment unless you build the theme. I’d like to try that for my next project but for now I’m happy with the customizations and changes I made for these sites.
I’ll reply to any comments made but I’m only going to add to this thread once and that’s when I add my Fluxbb forum to each of the sites in a couple of weeks.
