Post subject:  Finally I re-did my own site

After about a year and a half I finally managed to get around to re-doing my own site.

It's not finished yet as I am going to add a Blog, but there is enough there which is ok to make it live. Also going to make the home page slideshow randomised, which actually uses the News module for the content. That's why I love CSMS, as there is more than one way to crack an egg.

Fully responsive for tablet and mobile and code condensed for high page speed score of up to 98 out of 100

CMS 1.11.7
CGSimpleSmarty
CGExtensions
CGContentUtils
FormBuilder

I look forward to hearing any comments.

Looks great. I don't have any criticisms at all (anything I have to add to this would be down to my preferences and design style). Great work!

That's a very nice site indeed, you should be pleased. :)

You might want to run it through the W3C validator to fix a few minor issues with your output though. Other than that I can't fault it.

Thanks Tetsuo

I had checked it previously re the WC3 Validation then made a few additions afterwards, now all sorted.

Can you give a few details on how you used the News module for the slideshow? Looks great.

There is a typo on the slideshow, on the slide for tablets - adapt spelled adpat.

Hi proboscidian

Thanks for spotting the typo.

Re using news module. I just created a new category and a template for it and used an existing jQuery / CSS slideshow. Then in the page content just used the smarty tag call to news i.e.
\$1:
{news start='0' number='3' summarytemplate='Slideshow'}


The advantage of using the news module is that you could set up multiple slideshows just by changing the start number.
