  • I made an artist’s portfolio site (Lisa DeJohn) using WordPress for the text pages (About Me, What’s New, etc.). It’s very stripped down (no sidebar or comments, for example). I just used WordPress to make the pages easy for the artist to edit, without her having to learn any HTML.

  • I think it looks really great! I tried unsuccessfully to use WP to build a portfolio site a few months ago, but I grew frustrated. The site you built looks great.

    However, I’m confused. I thought the menu on the left side was a sidebar… is it just html or frames?

    Again, great work!

    The menu on the left is a sidebar, but it’s not the WordPress sidebar. It’s just HTML in the WordPress Page template, with a variable body id to make the current page stand out.

    Wow, neat idea. Again, really great layout and design!!

    Absolutely fantastic in all it’s simplicity! Great work. Did you release the theme or edit an existing one? I think it’s perfectly beautiful…just right for an artist!!!
    Bravo!

    Great look…. about my only complaint is that the jpgs have so many “artifacts” – makes it look “sloppy”. pngs would be better, especially for an artist’s site (this from the person on dialup…. but then again, jpg artifacts are so amateurish-looking….)

    I just edited the default theme. And yeah, pngs would be higher quality, but they’d really add to the page load times.
