The Template you've been waiting for!
« on: July 25, 2015, 05:43:28 AM »
Good Morning

I don't know in what time zones you folks are, but if you get a chance please view my site www.sa-only.co.za it is still in alpha development stage which I primarily focus on adding new types of html and css "modules" to make the site look funky and attractive, please note the site is not responsive yet so please try to view the site with a screen resolution of 1440px by 900px and most of the buttons are not working(if I the add new modules "yourfilename.tpl" I break the code for the buttons aswell, so I use my own JS functions - I am still learning smarty but if someone can help me with the correct method of adding actions to the buttons I would appreciate it) What I would like you folks to do is, is to suggest layouts, I'm already satisfied with the top block below the login header menu(1st image) I am also going to implement a slideshow for the block with the 1st image you can see an example here http://wowslider.com/rq/picture-slideshow-html-on-google-sites-7s.html but for the 2nd block - 2nd image with the accordion I need people to give me suggestions(after all this will be a free template) if you've seen nice sites do share, I am changing the whole template so this is only the first page!

If anyone's interested leave a comment or pm me!

Looks good, the only thing I don't really like is the grey background on the social media icons on the left.

Bootstrap is nothing complicated really, it's just predefined classes added to div's. I like to keep it simple, I like javascript because there are some things you just can't do without it, but if I can stick to css(3) then I do, it's easiest explained like this. In the default-3-column you use a stylesheet default.css right? basically we could use default.css for the bootstrap classes too, the only reason I use seperate files are because server requests' complete faster if it's multiple tiny files instead of one big one. The nice thing about bootstrap is it's like (rapid application development) but only for the web in java I go for code re-usability - try to use one class as much as possible, that's why I kind of got confused because smarty runs on both OOP and Procedural Programming, We want faster execution times, that's why I decided to restart my project with a framework instead. But my domain is currently giving some issues I can't access cpanel through 2083 OR through my direct client login to my domain provider, even ftp refuses to work. So now I am quickly downloading a xampp, so I guess you will have to wait and see Pharg.

But you'll be very impressed when I am done. Hopefully this inspires folks to learn more about web development it would be nice if we had a coder's community! Like even if we had people doing different things, like UX Designers, Bootstrap designers and developers. But hey I guess I will have to do this on my own! Well I don't mind! I'm having fun!

Hi blacksmoke90,

I already have two sites that use bootstrap sliders and advanced galleries etc, there just hasn't been one made lately on osDate, so no rush.

So I think everyone else may be asleep, I have some good news to share unfortunately I can't reveal the template I am busy building, what I can tell the audience is that there is awesome news!!! And Not so awesome news for the non-technical folks, I decided not to implement just a bootstrap, it's so limited instead I decided to implement a framework! And let me tell you guys I really searched for this framework for nearly four hours, I reviewed all of the so-called "best frameworks of 2015" until I discovered materializecss, I chose not to review it like 5 or 6 times! Let me tell this is going to be so freaken cool!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Hi folks so this is taking a bit longer than I expected, but things are looking good. visit www.sa-only.co.za You'll see that I have implemented the framework, the preview  showcases an accordion, an off-canvas menu, รก modal popup instead of the old boring fixed login oh and ofcourse a slideshow there's still much, much more to be seen, I am working very hard on this to get it finished, checking for bugs and so on, oh one last thing it is fully responsive :) I am busy rebuilding all of the layouts.

Hi blacksmoke90,

Looks good, one thing though, you will find many of us have changed our menus, even though osDate has just the
basic rather boring menu, it's just there to give the members a idea how they can have it.
