This was a HUGE undertaking, but we finally launched yesterday. This entire site was done by two of us.. front end designer and back end WP programmer . . and of course the help of css-tricks and diggin. EVERYTHING is populated via WP.
Take a look at it and give us some feedback. Look at the footer for a link to the old version of our site.. to see the progress we made.
thanks.. looking forward to hearing your comments!
I think it’s quite nice. Everything has breathing room and the content really steals the show with that simple layout.
If you don’t mind my asking, how did you put together the artist area? Do the artists have control over their little page? A friend of mine recently put up a “things to do” website for our local town and was thinking about adding a section for local artists to sign up for free and I’ve been thinking of different ways we could give an artist control over a single page profile.
Ha so bizarre, my two-person team is starting almost the exact same project for a .org based in Michigan. Site looks great, content-focused with a modern feel.
Only thing that strikes me a bit odd is the blog link having target=”blank”.
Also you get horizontal scroll on 1024 monitors!!
@Josh “If you don’t mind my asking, how did you put together the artist area? Do the artists have control over their little page? “
Technically we could allow the artists to update their section, but we are assuming the quality control for now. The page utilities a Gallery plugin for the images, which manages and sizes them automatically, and the copy is just styled. Everything is put in through a “page”.
@DogsChost: yeah, we need to work on the blog, It’s old and needed updating. The “higher ups” wanted in to be targeted in a blank page. And we are trying to narrow down the width a bit.
