I usually use wordpress, I know that it’s a blogging platform but it does have the ability to add pages and those pages are overall pretty easily customized. You could just not display blog posts anywhere and just use the pages that wordpress offers.
Just my thoughts though I’m sure someone will have another suggestion.
Great– so how should I approach this? I have my mockup all finished up for each page within Photoshop. Should I just go ahead an code it like a normal page (html and css, add images and everything)? Or should I just code within the WP files?
Also, any solid WP theme creation tutorials out there? I have seen a few, but they are all for blog-type WP sites.
* Complete Design
* Code all templates in basic HTML / CSS / JS
* Convert templates into WordPress
These days, though, there seem to be some pretty amazing WordPress templates that are design to be a starting point. I checked out *underscores* recently and thought it was pretty great: //underscores.me/
I’ve been eyeing perch for a while – I like how it’s progressed.
@andy_unleash how does image management work? The one thing that always seems a frustration is the management of larger images clients upload and they can make it show up with smaller pixel dimensions but the file size was still 2mb. When you upload images in Perch does it resolve that issue?
@ben_boomer@strages you should check out our newly launched //copybar.io . We built it for the exact use-case you enumerated. It can be implemented client-side or server-side, works with WP, and gives your users the power of incontext editing in addition to element by element ACL. I use it for a number of different client sites where WP is too clunky and my clients want a simpler workflow. Please forgive the shameless self-promotion, but I sincerely think Copybar would be useful in this case.
