This is the first of many websites I will be making in PHPwcms

http://magicomm.biz/index.phtml

I'm eventually going to add a blog and forum to it as well as front end login however I'm torn between adding the functionality with modules or waiting for a new release. I will probably resort to PHPBB for the forum unless anyone has a better solution.

I also had to create my own replacement tag for the file list template so i could display the info that was typed in through the backend.

I also changed the calendar mod a bit so that it displayed events for the whole year.

I really like this site. Great use of colour, graphics and images. Nice work.

Did you create a new template for each category so the left nav will display each sub category? I tried nav setlevel ages ago but haven't used it for a while, is there another way to do it now other than different templates?

Ben,

Just look here http://www.phpwcms.de/forum/viewtopic.php?t=14273.
Lift level is the magic word.

Level lift for the vertical navigation, beginning at the first level behind :
Code:

Code: Select all

[PHP] 
if(isset($GLOBALS['LEVEL_ID'][1])) { 
$level_id = $GLOBALS['LEVEL_ID'][1]; 
echo '<div class="nlu_navi1">'.LF; 
echo '{NAV_LIST_UL:F,'.$level_id.',,act_path,active}'; 
echo '</div>'; 
} 
[/PHP] 
Greetz,

Axel

I actually did create multiple templates. At first i was just going to use one, but i wanted the freedom of being able to change the banners and look and feel of the main topics.

I like this page. But there are some minor points which could be a little bit better (only small fixes):
  1. 1.) The headlines / H-tags. They are a little bit too strong in my opinion. It would be a little bit better if the color would not be so dark and if the font size would be a litte bit smaller.
  • 2.) Color of links: the default blue color is a little bit boring - try it with a different color.
  • 3.) Main menu (top of the page): the indicator which shows the active section is a little bit difficult to see. Perhaps you can use the 2pixel line on the top of each menu point to become a different color when the section is active.
  • 4.) Sub menu: there is no indication which section is active. :(
  • 5.) Conact form: try to format the form fields and buttons.

The design is very nice, but the header (especialy the main-navi) somehow does not fit into the rest of the design and i think you should work a bit on design of the content (link-colors, contact-form etc.).
But all in all: nice site ;)

I added a blog
Is it core code hacking or a module? If the latter I'd be interested!
It's mostly all about webdesign, logo design, new and old pages refresh, print BUT slowly switching to be supporter for the band Mykket Morton. Visit Mykket Morton on FB. Listen Mykket Morton and live videos on youtube.

I used his module and then edited the frontend.render and db.functions file as well as made a custom rssfeed.php. If anyone is interested id be more than happy to get it all organized and put it up somewhere.
