Before I go on vacation, more Thematic madness!

Demo
I’ve mentioned in my previous post about Thematic that I want to implement a static web-page using WordPress and Thematic as a CMS, so here’s a sneak  peek: Demo. It doesn’t have a lot of content yet, I still have to install a form builder, a photo gallery, create some more pages and perhaps a video with the clients Auto Shop, but the main template is done. And again it was so easy to implement.

I have to say this is not a child theme, because I made small changes to the header file of the Thematic theme . Other then that, the needed changes for the thematic_belowheader ( for the slide show ) hook were done through functions.php file.

I have to say I can’t wait for WordPress 2.7 to implement full theme inheritance. Things will really take of then.

Away on vacation!

Finally some well deserved time off. It’s been a really interesting year for me and things appear to become even more interesting.

I’ll be away until the first of September so expect a full blog post in the first week after my vacantion on how I’ve used and implemented WordPress and Thematic as a CMS for KraftAuto .

Until next time, have fun!

  1. Wow, way to go!

    I can’t believe that’s thematic under there. But, as I’ve said before, it’s definitely a powerful framework.

    Pretty soon (wordpress 2.7) you won’t need to edit Thematic in order to change your header.php, so you’ll be really laughing then!

  2. I’m just now getting to know Thematic. Is there a tutorial on how to create a Thematic-based theme? Are there any open-source themes based on Thematic? Thanks.

  3. Hi Ed,

    I haven’t written any thematic tutorial. Just some tips about it ( http://www.cozmoslabs.com/2008/08/11/10-design-tips-for-your-custom-wordpress-theme-built-with-thematic/ ) .
    As far as wordpress themes built on thematic go over to http://themeshaper.com/ and on the right look for WordPress Themes. They are developed by Ian Stewart, the creator of Thematic.
    If you have more questions about it go over to http://themeshaper.com/forums/ There are a lot of resources there.

    Have fun with thematic! :)
