Complete XML+CSS Website //Fullscreen Template v3

Update – 12/20/09: Version 3.2

All bugs fixed!

Update – 10/2/09: Version 3.1

Main changes / features added:

Overall:

The folder/file design. Every page is now a “module” that you use from that folder. For example, if you wish to create two text pages (currently the about age), all you have to do is create a duplicate the XML file for the text page, change it to the images/text you want, and just add it to the main.xml file!

Index:

The intro page and the main page now have an option for either XML text or an XML image logo!
The main page can be set to any width and height via XML ! The title, menu, line, etc will all reposition themselves automatically.
The size listener will also resize and look at specific sizes according to the size of the main page size.
About page:

If there are no images for the slideshow, the text box will reposition and resize itself, making the text cover the full page!

Reel page:

Completely new thing here! It’s a full video page that plays one video. In the XML , you can set everything, including the size, position, buffer, video loop, auto start, starting volume, accent colors, and the option to show each control on the bottom individually, meaning you set what you want to show and what to hide, and it will reposition itself all automatically!
The music also stops on this page for the video, and if it was playing before, it will continue to play when you leave the page.

Video page:

This is a mixture between the reel page (described above), and the image gallery. It basically is a gallery, and when you click on a thumbnail, it will take you to the video. In the XML file, you can set everything, including the size, position, buffer, video loop, auto start, starting volume, accent colors, and the option to show each control on the bottom individually, meaning you set what you want to show and what to hide, and it will reposition itself all utomatically!
The music will also automatically fade in and out between videos.
Each video also has an option for its own custom width and height, and if its too large to fit in the page window, you have an option to hide the background stuff (menu, title, background for the page, line, etc..)
Each video also has an option for a link that will show on the top of the video when you roll over the video.


----------—-

Version 3 is here! Version 2 took about a month to build, and then another month to make sure everything is working smoothly.
Version 3 took about a year of planning, and over a month of building, taking all the advice given from the previous versions, creating the ultimate website template!

All text, images, colors, etc, are all loaded dynamically through external XML and CSS files. That’s right, we have CSS in this version too!

Can have the whole website be award winning status with all of your info/text/images uploaded in no time, and have absolutely no trace that it’s a template!
It will look like a custom website built costing thousands of dollars!

Everything is set, and included. The template is ready, and all you have to do is upload your images, text, and music.

AS2 – Actionscript 2 / Flash8 and CS3 files included.

Video Page will be added shortly!!! Will be similar to the images page.
