Template Underground - Site for graphic artists

Postby MrRoyce » Sat May 19, 2007 8:35 pm

Website URL: http://www.templateunderground.com

Template:  Customized

Additional Extensions (Components, Modules, Plug ins): virtuemart, flash rotator

Custom Development: Some VM customization, the site is mostly static pages that display templates available for purchase

Other Features: e-commerce, pdf-word converter

Three (at least) specific areas of my site that I'd like feedback on (design, code, graphics, etc.):  Design, Usability, Overall Impression

Additional Comments:  Hi there, this is a site for graphic artists that want to get InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Word, etc templates.  We will evenutally offer services, but the primary focus is downloading templates.  Looking for a better flash rotator for main page - I know the birthday banner is a poor one to start off with.  We will evenutally make the banners more of a "story" and description for the site. 

EDIT - The "graphics" menu item is the most filled out to date.  The others have a handful of items or is empty.  We are madly building content,  but gotta sleep sometime!

Looks very nice. The simplicity is great. All you need is to finish the content. Didi you use a component for the images on the graphics page?

Great site and good luck.

Thanks for the compliment.  No, there was no component used, I have a template that makes it a bit easier, but it is still a bit tedious to use.  As usual, its all about getting content and we are struggling to define exactly what we will provide.

Might I ask which script/module you use for the item image rollover effect with you click on one of the products - such as the business cards? (i.e. when you mouseover one of the business cards, an image of it appears to the left).

It's a combination of a this:

Code: Select all

function YY_showHideLayers(L2show, L2hide) {

  if (document.layers){ //ns
    for (i=0; i<(document.layers.length); i++){
      if (document.layers[i].name.search(L2hide) != -1){document.layers[i].visibility = 'hide';}
      if (document.layers[i].name.search(L2show) != -1){document.layers[i].visibility = 'show';}
    }
  }else
  if (document.all != null){ //ie
    var yydiv = document.all.tags("DIV");
    for (i=0; i<(yydiv.length); i++){
      if (yydiv[i]) {var yydivname = yydiv[i].id;} else {var yydivname = '';}
      if (yydivname.search(L2hide) != -1) document.all[yydivname].style.visibility = 'hidden';
      if (yydivname.search(L2show) != -1) document.all[yydivname].style.visibility = 'visible';
        }
  }else
  if (document.getElementById){ //mz
    var yydiv = document.getElementsByTagName("DIV");
    for (i=0; i<(yydiv.length); i++){
      if (yydiv[i]) {var yydivname = yydiv[i].id;} else {var yydivname = '';}
      if (yydivname.search(L2hide) != -1) document.getElementById(yydivname).style.visibility = 'hidden';
      if (yydivname.search(L2show) != -1) document.getElementById(yydivname).style.visibility = 'visible';
    }
  }
}


and this:

Code: Select all

onmouseover="YY_showHideLayers('1','amx')" onmouseout="YY_showHideLayers('9','amx')">


and some funky FF browser bug stuff  ;)

Looks great, and a useful sevice.

One comment is that it seems to be rather, er, enigmatic, in terms of who you are and what you offer. Perhaps a short text paragraph somewhere on the front page just to fill out what you already have.
