    Here is a website made with WordPress using the Weaver Xtreme theme and various plugins.  I put the website together and maintain it but do not control the content.  Seems like a good site to “showcase” since it does contain some extra features including a slideshow, file downloads, photo galleries, and site map.  I’d be happy to answer any questions regarding plugins or other semi-technical aspects of the website.  Suggestions for improvements are appreciated as well.

    Well, that is a really good-looking site! 🙂  I’m just starting with Weaver and finding it a bit of a challenge, particularly the home page.  May I ask what plugin you used for the slider on the homepage?  And also, how you got the circular linked images on the homepage – I take it they are widgets?  That’s what I want to do and so far haven’t made any headway.  The tutorials say in some places that we can put widgets anywhere but …how?!!  I also think it’s using shortcodes, yes?  …but so far finding that difficult to suss out.  Which is why I’ve just come to the forum.  Many thanks for your help in advance 🙂

    The main thing I’ve done is used SiteOrigin’s Page Builder plugin to create the main page.  Page Builder works by arranging widgets in customizable rows.  These rows replace the normal “main content”.  Not a single word of custom coding necessary.  Works with any sort of widget – photos, text boxes, menus…

    Specifically, those circles are merely a row of three photos that link to the appropriate pages.

    I’m not sure which plug-in is used for the slider.  I’ll have to log in to the editor later and let you know.

    I use the same PageBuilder plug-in for my personal site, especially on the home page:  http://placesandpics.com/
    One difference, on this page the slider is not in the main content / PageBuilder area; it’s in the container_top widget area with a bit of custom code that allows it to stretch the full width.  The slider on this site is the free version of Huge IT Slider.

    Ah many thanks for that! 🙂  …I’ve progressed a bit since I commented above but still have a way to go.  That Pagebuilder sounds wonderful, going to give it a try
