Launched Another Site
AnonymousMarch 30, 2012 at 12:20 am #4053
I created another site for one of our DJ’s that’s rising on the top.
All feed backs, opinions, comments are welcome. Also I am willing to help if you have any questions on how to achieve a look from my site. Thank for your time. Again and again this theme is by far the best! Thank you.

Thanks everyone for the great comments. I appreciated the feed backs.
There’s several ways to achieve a site like this depending how in-depth you are with CSS, HTML, and PHP.
There’s lots of tutorials on this forums that will give you step-by-step instructions on how to create custom menus and to style it.
As far as plugins:
Firs things first, create a child theme. If your not sure how download this plugin and read instructions: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/one-click-child-theme/.
Then you are ready to start styling your new Child themed Website.
I use http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/content-slide/ To achieve the top banner, it rotates images with faded effect, and you add as many as you like. You’ll have to add a bit of PHP coding to your header.php in order for it to work, all explanations are in that link.
Sidebar widgets are endless. For example for my events feed I use Google Calendar, I downloaded this pluging http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-calendar-events/
it takes the feed from Google and posts it on your sidebar widgets with different looks. Also customizable CSS.
Facebook widget here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/
Add this social sharing: http://www.addthis.com/
Photo Gallery: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery/
Contact Form: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/contact-form-7/
There’s thousands of plugins out there you’ll just have to see which one works for you. It’s a lot of trial and error, and lots of reading and learning if your new at this. But in the end it’s worth it. Hope this helps thanks again!

As usual, another well customised site by Tee! Congratulations!
I think contact form needs some polishing.. Width of the Name, Subject, Message and Attachments fields are unequal. (in firefox). Try to well align them.
Here is a list of well designed contact forms – Best Practices of Contact Form-Page Designs in WordPress
My contact form – http://www.prasannasp.net/contact/ (Using Contact Form 7 plugin)
And the Custom CSS used in my contact form – http://pastebin.com/xW744LA0
Your Contact form in FF
Looks almost fine on Chromium,
