We recently launched the new Mitsubishi Website for the venezuelan community and would like to have your constructive feedback on it.
Website URL: http://www.mitsubishi-motors.com.ve
We made 6 custom templates for the site
Additional Extensions (Components, Modules, Plug ins):
- DBQ manager: used to display prices
- DOCMAN: file downloads for the general public
- MGM Joomla! Gallery Manager: Still the best gallery manager out there, used for all the galleries in the site
- Moslate: for custom element design, there is no way to do what we did without it. Great stuff!. Custom code for page structures, custom titles, custom video loaders and a long etc.
- Extended Menu: at last a great module for professional templates , with the level of detail and flexibility needed
- mod_flexcontent was used for the videoblog list display (the button on the first page)
- AllVideos Plug in
- Tabs & Slides In Content Items
- And a hack to the mospagebreak bot that allowed us to put the TOC were we wanted
We built a custom flash menu that uses AMFPHP to communicate with the joomla DB. The menu does just what we needed. We have a lot of trouble with the commercial and free solutions available.
We also modified mod_latestnews to include a link to the news section, this is a very useful addition.
This site uses the fork of JOOMLA's Accessible Joomla! (http://forge.joomla.org/sf/projects/accessible_joomla). this fork is being actively maintained and is a great option if you need to use a tableless xhtml compliant version of JOOMLA.
The site use the last version of sfir from http://novemberborn.net. The titles use Univers Condensed Light.
We integrated mootools (http://mootools.net) in two of our templates in order to get that AJAX feel. We had many problems with this due to the interaction between flash and mootools: this technologies don't go well together at all.
Three (at least) specific areas of my site that I'd like feedback on (design, code, graphics, etc.):
We would like your input in the usability, design and implementation of joomla technologies. We still need help on testing the site on Opera and other browsers. Your input is very important to us
We would like to thank the Joomla development team and the developers of each and every component we are using in this site. We also thank the community in this forum for the ideas, solutions to problems and feedback.
The Triphase Team
