When I built this site I decided to use a combination of WordPress and the Pagelines Framework which when combined the two create a powerful content management system and blog. Pagelines is structured in sections so each element of the website is a separate section you can control, change and move elsewhere by using the drag and drop framework.
To build this site I made my own child theme that overwrites certain sections such as the ‘brand-nav’ with my own customised version and change other sections superficially with CSS like the featured boxes I use to display the rotating banner of pictures. All of this came together to produce the website you see now and that website has just been featured in the Pagelines Showcase Battleground #5 where you can vote for this site to win!
If your looking for reasons to choose my site over some of the other entrants then heres a few:
- Utilised PageLines Framework effectively
- Customised the site from defaults (ie the feature boxes, brand-nav and the social icons are all different)
- Its a good design!
Thanks for visiting and prepare yourself for more updates in the future, this is only the beginning.
