What makes this template special is that it can be adapted to work with multiple types of websites:
Online service website
Typically, if you have an online service of any kind, your main goal is to get users to register. You can use a screenshot of your application on the front page, or any other illustration that explains your service. The tabs can be used to introduce your service, or give a step by step presentation. The green button would be “sign up”, and you can remove the “download” tab.
Here, you don’t want your visitors to register, but instead to download your application. Don’t worry, Platinum is flexible enough to accommodate your needs. Just replace the “sign up” button by “download latest version”. The “download” tab can be used to give more detailed download options.
And don’t forget to hook up the “blog” template to your favorite CMS to keep users posted !
Yep, Platinum can even make a great portfolio. Put in a slideshow of your latest work instead of screenshots of an application, and you’re well on your way to a kick-ass portfolio. The tabs can be used to explain more about your work, services, or background. Just replace the “sign up” text by “contact me” and put in a link to the existing contact page (did I mention the form fully works with both AJAX and PHP validation ?).
But how will you showcase your work ? Easy, just take the “tour” page and replace the video by a large screenshot of your latest masterpiece.
Setting up the slideshow
Here’s an alternative home page demo to show you how easy it is to modify the slideshow.
In home.html, just locate the cycle() function on line 41 and change its “fx” option to any one of the effects on this page:
That’s it !
