Showing Off Wasdale Mountain Rescue

    Just looking for feedback on Particularly from anyone using IE9 since my PC is running XP I can’t test it in IE9.

    Thankyou for an excellent theme!

    It looks good in IE9. In fact, it looks the same as it does in Firefox 6. I love what you have done with the top-nav bar and the footer. A very creative use of what is otherwise usually blank space. Please tell us how you did this.

    Thank you Ken,

    For the header I hooked onto the graphene_feed_icon action hook and used numbers greater than 10 (the default) for the order. Since all three added bits are floated left I gave About Us 11, Contact Us 12, and the Rescue Counter 13. Then I cloned the CSS to match the nav menu.



    /* — Adds About us link to top bar — */

    add_action(‘graphene_feed_icon’,’wmrt_about_us’, 11);

    function wmrt_about_us() {

    echo ‘<div id=”wmrt_aboutus”><link a href=”‘ . get_site_url() . ‘/about-us/” title=”About Us”><span>About Us</span></link a></div>’;



    I added link to stop the forum software mangling it.

    Hope this makes sense, and thanks for the feedback.

    Using backticks is your best bet for this.

    Action hooks! I was just looking into this today and seeing how they could be used and then here’s a perfect example. Talk about serendipity. You’ve definitely given me a lot to think about here.

    Looks good! Maybe add little icons for the sunset and sunrise time? Also, it’ll probably be better to define a background colour for the header (eg. black), so that it won’t be see-through while the header image is loading.



    It looks amazing 🙂

    How did you add that ‘Want to join the team?’ text at the bottom of the site?

    Not sure, but that looks like a custom menu added to the footer menu area. I haven’t messed around too much with the footer menu, but it is one of those other under-utilized areas.

    Jon, you are really making good use of everything that Graphene has to offer. Well done!

    Syahir, thank you very much for the feedback, and of course the excellent theme, both ideas now implemented.

    Charlie, Yes I just created another menu in the custom menus and then set it to the footer menu. Nothing too complicated.

    Ken, thank you !



    Excellant Facebook menu on the left. I am still learning menu building and would like to know how you did that one. Thanks.



    Never mind. Figured it out!
