Fulcrum Associates
#1
Fresh out of the oven, Fulcrum Associates has been launched using GetSimple. There were several server issues that had to be overcome (not the best host to deal with), but the site is doing well. It is a completely custom design not based on an existing template. Here is a list of the plugins we used in it:
  • GS Blog
  • Custom Title
  • i18n
  • i18n Custom Fields
  • i18n Gallery
  • i18n Search
  • News Manager
  • Multi User
  • SEO Manager

Cheers,

Nice, it's a good example of what you can do with GetSimple CMS as far as making advanced sites. Thank you for sharing it!

That looks very nice! I would suggest a mobile theme as well! Or some edits to make this one mobile friendly.

Nice, first thing that jumps out is the advanced drop down menus...
Is that a plugin or in an easily editable format someplace, or just straight coding?
I didn't spot it in your plugin list.

nicely done site!

@Crssp - Thank you. The top navigation is a combination of static coding and using the navigation portion of the i18n plugin to pull the sub-links into a list.

Could elaborate what part is hard coded? Did you hard code the navigation? I'm trying to do something like this. any help would be appreciated!

@lnickel - Basically the pages were created in the admin and nested as needed. Then the links were coded like this:

Code:
<li id="navbar-fulcrum" class="first"><?php get_i18n_link('fulcrum'); ?>
    <div class="navbar-subnav corners">
        <ul>
            <?php get_i18n_navigation('fulcrum', 1, 1, I18N_SHOW_NORMAL); ?>
        </ul>
        <div class="navbar-right-content">
            <img src="<?php get_theme_url(); ?>/images/img_offices_mega_photo.jpg" alt="Fulcrum" title="Fulcrum" class="img-left shadows" />
            <h4 class="burgundy">Fulcrum continues to lead in construction management</h4>
            <p>Fulcrum was founded in 1989, offering construction management and services firm focused on consulting services for banks with distressed real estate assets.</p>
            <div class="align-right"><a href="/about.html" title="Learn More" class="burgundy">Learn More &raquo;</a></div>
            <br class="clear" />
            <p class="align-center"><img src="<?php get_theme_url(); ?>/images/img_fulcrum_mega_tagline.jpg" alt="Setting the bar for high-performance construction since 1989" title="Setting the bar for high-performance construction since 1989" /></p>
        </div>
        <div class="mega-footer align-center"><img src="<?php get_theme_url(); ?>/images/img_mega_footer.jpg" alt="" title="" /></div>
    </div>
</li>

The rest is just CSS. Hope this helps.
