New Horizon for Elegant WordPress Themes
Semiomantics innovative WordPress based website developments have explored a new level: a Glossy Elegant WordPress Theme based on the combination of the Semiomantics tuned Thesis Theme with Semiomantics Evolution Flash developments.
The Idea behind the Project
Semiomantics first priority in developing WordPress has always been the performance and SEO of the sites. Media and media related semantics are less efficient on Google than text; therefore Semiomantics has focused for media development outside WordPress, namely in connection with Flash developments.
Customers and visitors of Semiomantics Evolution sites are amazed by the quality of the media, display and effects. While flash offers the most stunning visual effects, their semantics is less SE efficient than traditional html.
The idea was now to associate the flash developments with the WordPress developments and to use flash media to shape the look of WordPress. Inversely, one could imagine to import WordPress content into Flash environments.
At the bases of the development there is always a Semiomantics WordPress script.
The Purpose of the Project
Traditionally, commercial customers have to choose between a smashing flash website, a SE efficient HTML site or some sort of a compromise of both. Compromises are rarely satisfactory, that’s why people often use two sites and interlink them.
The purpose of the project was therefore to associate the advantages of both extremes under one Semiomantics WordPress CMS to let visitors of the High Performance Semiomantics WP experience the smashing media delivered by Semiomantics Evolution.
Implementation and Screenshots
The test run this past week-end was run on this website in combination with Semiomantics Evolution and EVO2.
A first shot was to integrate Evolution right below the header banner of the WordPress site. As the image results from a heavily zoomed out screen, the full width of EVO2 is not displayed on the screen shot. In reality we see the whole display of EVO2. Also the Logo on EVO2 moves down to the menu, just because of the Zoom effect:
The second shot was to display only EVO2 on the Home Page, giving the site a look of a glossy magazine. This screen is not zoomed and displays the content correctly.
Here it is where things get interesting: the menu in EVO2 can serve as a WordPress Navigation and inversely, the WordPress Navigation can be associated with the menu of EVO2. Here is how it works:
If on the EVO2 menu we select ‘HOME’ we are directed to the home page of the blog, there we would see the Homepage content of WordPress as well as the corresponding Media from EVO2. The same applies to every category of page. Further development would be needed to create associations to posts with custom media.
The EVO2 Navigation would allow to select categories for example and the WordPress navigation could display menus featuring the contained posts and related media.
In the end, EVO2 can serve as a fully integrated multimedia box for WordPress based websites!
