This is our second XML-driven Flash creative portfolio website which you can customize by simply altering the default XML attributes in a single XML file, and by replacing the external audio/photo/video assets with your own.
A major benefit is that the whole website is modularly structured on sections, while using only one XML settings file. Both the template and its XML settings file are logically-structured and very easy to customize.
A big Thank you goes to:
- the tallented Gixxer audio artist for his superb Flight Of The Dragon and Memories songs he was so nice and allowed us to use in the preview template!
- Adrien for his great music samples
- the owner of photos8 for their amazing photos
We’ve included both CS3 and CS4 .fla source files for your convenience.
- Smart Color/Desaturated (black& white) Mode Switch, customizable via XML
- liquid layout – the contents will always be centered horizontally AND vertically, regardless the browser width / aspect ratio
- smart website menu – you don’t have to worry about the length of each button’s label, the buttons will always resize to include the text you need them to display
- Smart FullScreen On/Off Switch, with optional right-click menu entries
- expandable music player – elegance and simplicity, combined with smart functionality – the advanced music controls appear only on mouse rollover
- Customizable, HTML syntax-driven “Terms And Conditions” Section
- Smart, class-driven Scrollbars, that are able to hide when the content is short enough and doesn’t need to be scrolled
- Right-click and copyright info – set them up via the XML settings file, you are given the possibility to use your imagination when setting these values.
- Small “Hint” notification window that slides up to inform the visitors they can use the left/right arrow keys to navigate the galleries
- smart contact form module – uses a smart algorithm to validate the filled-in email address, and checks for all fields completion before allowing the visitor to submit the email message
- LightBox-Style galleries implementation – the image container will smoothly resize according to the width/height of the image it has to display, while staying centered all the time!. The same goes for the Video Gallery section.
- Smart Background Image Changer Module – will always scale the photos you’re using as background images, mo matter the display resolution / aspect ratio (i.e. 4:3, 16:9 etc.) while keeping the image proportions constand and smoothing the image at the same time. You can set up the minimum stage width / height at which point the images won’t be scaled anymore, and even disable this option by setting this attribute’s value to zero
The “LikeNoOther SELENE XML Showcase Template” will load 5 sections, MAIN PAGE, LATEST NEWS, PHOTO GALLERY, VIDEO GALLERY, and GET IN TOUCH. The features of each section can be set up by editing the attributes you can find within their specific XML node.
What you get:
- everything you need to get your website up and running in no time, including the source files and the GreenSock TweenLite classes, should you intend to further customize it more than the XML file allows you to
- an extremely detailed, 20-page userguide document, with screenshots and explicite info about the XML settings and more
- tech support available almost daily should you encounter any bugs, or you need the website to be customized to your specific needs
Last, but not least:
We will gladly fix any reported bugs, but if you need extra features to be added or you want to modify the website in a more complex manner, please take into account that this would imply a freelance approach from our side, and thus extra payment for your custom job, based on our hourly rates. Feel free to contact me for more info.
Thanks and enjoy our unique template!
Please, do us a favor and rate our files And, of course, comments and questions are always welcome. Thank you so much!
