The widgets areas on the front page, as well … [Read more...] about Genesis – Move the menus to the header so that they share the background image
For some time already, I had been thinking about adding a static homepage to this website. In which case, a magazine like front page would be the most obvious choice, since Wilwebs.com is a blog. The post about the Dynamik Skins was an excellent opportunity to try the BlogPress skin. Generally, all Dynamik skins offer a pre-customized layout and styling. And BlogPress offers a … [Read more...] about Prototyping with Genesis and Dynamik – A Redisign
In the Dynamik Website Builder Review, we walked through the Dynamik Settings and touched some of the Dynamik Design options.

The current version is 1.7.1, so an up-to-date Dynamik Website Builder Review is definitely justified. The Dynamik Website Builder, or Dynamik for short, is a product of Cobalt Apps. Just like the Genesis Extender, which has been reviewed here … [Read more...] about Dynamik Website Builder Review

In the earlier episodes of this series, we created a layout and added styling to that layout. Together these make the design of a website. When building a website with Headway, you usually start with the blog index. The layout and styling of the blog template offer the foundation for all other page templates; single posts, single pages, homepage, portfolio, 404 page, etc. The … [Read more...] about Headway Themes Project Part 3 – Creating the Homepage for wilwebs.org

It is already two years ago that I wrote a review about Headway Themes. Back then I used version 3.2 of the Headway Theme. Several new version have been released since, and I must say that I like how Headway keeps improving itself with every new release.

Following the same procedure like two years … [Read more...] about Headway Themes Project Part 1 – Creating the Layout of wilwebs.org

The first edition included all WordPress related frameworks that I came across. Whether the product was still actively maintained, or that the development had been already ceased; it was included in the … [Read more...] about Overview of WordPress Theme Frameworks – the 2014 Edition
