This is a new travel photography website created with Weaver Xtreme. It’s a personal website, completely non-commercial. I started with the “kitchen sink” sub theme and made a few changes to it. The color scheme is taken directly from elements in the photos.
Website width is 1200px, and the standard image width for the pages is 900px.
Plug-ins that I found useful for this site include Media File Manager, Huge IT Slider, Page Builder by SiteOrigin, Widget Customizer, WP Sitemap Page, and Feature a Page Widget.
I’m happy to answer any questions, and I welcome feedback and suggestions.
The technical aspects of WordPress and Weaver X are mostly within my understanding, and I think the basics (navigation, features, site-wide consistency, etc) are OK; my deficiency is obviously a lack a creativity in the web page design and layout. It took me weeks just to pick a website name. 🙁March 30, 2015 at 23:21 UTC - Views: 4 #20961
The site looks very nice 🙂 Just one comment about the breadcrumbs – black text on the darkish green background is very hard to read.It’s nice to read about and see photos of Mudgee and Singleton in my home state. Is it just a coincidence that you ended up in winegrowing areas :-))March 31, 2015 at 00:05 UTC - Views: 3 #20962
Thanks. I knew the blue and red didn’t jump out from the green, but I figured not many people use that feature anyway. It’s there if they look for it… You’re right though, I will investigate other color options to replace the green. FYI, the blue and red are taken from a photo of a colorful Australian bird and the green is from a fern leaf.
I work for a small geophysical company that does consulting for the mines. Is it a coincidence that so many people grow wine grapes in coal mining areas? 🙂
It’s probably no coincidence at all; there seems to be vineyards everywhere in Australia.
What town are you in, generally speaking? I have many pages to add yet, perhaps there’ll be a page of photos from there.March 31, 2015 at 09:13 UTC - Views: 3 #20963
Hi BobI’ve been a Sydney girl for many years now, but was born and bred in Wollongong 🙂And, yes, vineyards are everywhere – you can work your way around Australia visiting them :-))April 1, 2015 at 14:19 UTC - Views: 4 #20964
G’day. I’ve spent time in Wollongong and Sydney, but have few pictures from those places. And I’m more interested (personally) in small out-of-the-way parks and locations. In the works though is a slideshow of NSW lighthouses that may contain photos from each of those cities.
Thank you for the feedback. I have switched to a lighter green for the breadcrumb container.
