My page about australia

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Now online:

www.australien-fuer-anfaenger.de

The page is only in german. I hope you like the modified sketch template.

The website is for everybody who wants to go to australia, for example a work & travel year as i did last year.

Cheers and thanks for your support and feedback!

Does nobody have something to add? ;)

I need some opinions about my background color, it's maybe a little bit to dark. Or what do you think?

For example, perhaps dark blue? I need a color wich is in association with australia.

Hey Sebastien,

That is nice work really. Good pictures. They seem to be quite processed and the site helps them to stand out. If were to add colors to it maybe something textured and at the top. Australian colors are of course green and gold, or sea blue or red brown. Red brown cracked earth would make a good background at the top.
I'm sure there are better eyes out there with more credible suggestions so speak up :)

Cheers,
Jason.

Thanks Jason, thats a good idea. What do you think about a texture like from the red brown earth around the ayers rock?

Sounds good to me - gotta be careful with an image that size though :)

I agree, that can work but you'll need to process the image a bit and make sure it isn't too overpowering in size or color. :)

I changed the background image now to a much nicer picture. You can't see the full image, but this is desired. At the moment, it isn't the best one (not sharp enough), but it's just an idea...I kept the background color in black, the black color gives a good contrast...or what do you think?

Step in the right direction :)

I'd keep the background as black too.

Hi Sebastian!
Sehr schöne Seite!
Was mich beschäftigt ist, dass die prettybox bei dir läuft!
Hattest du keine Probleme mit den Thumbs?
Falls ja, bin für jeden Tipp zur Behebung meines Problems dankbar!

Gruß, Michael

questions upon questions ...

If I install K2, I don't get major problems within the template?

Sketch doesn't come with a K2 theme, but K2 would work fine. The issue would be you would need to style the default K2 template to suit your needs. If you are doing just fine without K2, there would be little reason to change to it. I'm a fan of using the default features as much as possible.

Ich finde die Seite schön, aber es gibt ein Flash Ding oben das funktioniert nicht oder falsch. Etwas von Sitespring, flash verlinked.

hmm its gone now. Perhaps it was just a bad load from SiteSpring that pushed the top bar down a little bit.

Hey Sebastien,

Thought Id say that this is one of my favourite implementations of the Sketch theme - really awesome stuff!

Thank you Anthony!!

There is just one question:

/*
Layout/Structure
*/
/*
Wrappers
*/
#container { width: 876px; margin: 150px auto 20px auto; padding: 0; background: url('../images/content_bg.png') repeat-y top center; }

I would like to have the content_bg just 146px down, that i don't have the content_bg as a background for the header_bg.

I tried some things, but it didn't work. Do i have to rewrite some css parts?
