New Themes: Emotions + Schloss
updated by rck, 2004-10-12

I had an idea on Sunday. What, if I'd try to make phpWebSite look less like a content management system and more like a Designers site?

While I am no designer, far from it, I did some googling and came up with a nice singlecolumn layout. Combine it with a banner-image and the corresponding Swatches and you get Emotions. Or Schloss.

Proof of concept vs. assembly line

Schloss is the green one, Emotions the red/black/white one
Emotions vs. Schloss

Emotions has some kind of innovative touch on it. Look at the nice fonts and their sizes. Look, how the colours blend in each other and fit perfectly. Mind the two menus, the single column layout with the integrated sidebar. Good bye functional design, hello graphical design!

Schloss on the other hand was done in less than a hour (Emotions took two days). Scan image, choose swatches, enter the colours in the stylesheet, change the topmenu a bit, that's it.

Try them out

Registered users simply choose their preferred layout from the Control Panel. So, if you are fed up with Polar, give them both a try. Even if you like Polar, Emotions and Schloss are refreshingly different. Like in completely different.

    Would you share your template and css files so I can use them with my own graphics?

    I like it better than the two column ones I have, because photos break the design if they're over 600px wide. This layout look unbreakable.

      Actually, it's not unbreakable. Please have a look at the css creator thread I wrote. I have to sort out a couple of problems, this is the worst.

      I'll try to write an article about that layout, as soon as it's working the way I want it to. I'm curious, how you will use it smile

        As i have seen in the css-forum, the bug is fixed. Can we expect a release of this nice theme soon?
