Site Just Launched – Community Swimming Pool

    We just launched a site I did pro-bono for our neighborhood swimming pool. I would love constructive feedback, but be nice – I’m not a graphic designer and it is all volunteer time!

    I also want to say that I just love this theme – so flexible! I barely had to write a drop of code. This is the first time I have used a child theme and it was just so clean and easy. The support here is phenomenal and I will leave a donation.

    Any plans on creating a “responsive” version of the theme that will support mobile devices, I would definitely be willing to pay for that!

    Nicely done.

    Two things:

    In Appearance >> Background, I would set the background attachment to “fixed” rather than “scroll”.

    In “Videos” I would include a link to your YouTube channel.

    Love the color scheme. Very nicely done.

    Hey carmenj,

    A quick question for you. Upon clicking either the “Staff” or “About” tab for your website, a page shows up but does not display the subpages included. How did you manage to do that?

    @canyon,

    I used two methods to do this. One is that I used a different page template for those pages. Second is that I created the “child page menu” using custom menus and widgets. I used a plugin called Widget Logic to attach the menu widgets only to the pages I wanted them on.

    Carmen,

    But how are the subpages hidden away in their Parent page? I don’t quite understand how the method achieves such result.. Pardon my lack of understanding 🙁

    @canyon,

    The menus are not SOLELY based on the parent-child page relationship. I have created custom menus. Ex: Swim Team Staff is a child of the Swim Team page, but I have it in both the “Staff” Menu and in the “Swim Team” Menu. I don’t have any menus being automatically created via parent-child pages. They are all custom menus.

    Does that answer your question?

    Carmen,

    Appreciate the explanation! I will attempt to do the same when I get a chance. Thanks again for your time!

    Did you know how many time I’ve searched for “Create WordPress Custom Menus” in your site and linkback here and there? 🙂
