Nebulae - free google sites template



Hi all, Yup, still alive and hopefully, things'll be more active around here.

 

We'll releasing a heap of new templates in the near future. But in the meantime enjoy the latest template out of the stables. I'll be doing a writeup in the next couple of days and writing up some articles showing you how to recreate and personalise this template. So you can put your own twist on it.

So stay tuned!




As with most of the templates we create, this template is using the theme 'Blank Slate'.

Below are the site layout dimensions that were used.


To get the logo to sit aligned with the left margin of the site body was a bit of trial and error.

Essentially what had to be done was, the png was created with 150px's of extra transparent space to the left of where the word 'nebulae' started. This allowed the logo to be pushed to the right and not hover above the menu.

I was going to leave it above the menu, but I think that it looked a bit unbalanced. It's still not perfectly aligned but with all the inconsistancies with all the different browsers out there it'll never be perfect.

The rest of the look was just making use of different fonts and creating a bit of dynamic typography to grab your attention.

I've included a zip file below with all the resources needed to create this theme.

Enjoy and sign up to the group to let us know what you think.


Sparkle free Google template

Sparkle - free google template by gethemes.com
 
Introducing the latest template to exit the stables, Sparkle...
 
 
There will be a write-up over the next few days on how you can customize this template to suit your branding and how to integrate the flash banner using gadgets. So stay tuned.
 


Update:

-Customizing the Sparkle template-

This template is using, for lack of a better term, a "fake" flash header.

This "fake" header is created using a flash embed gadget wrapping a custom flash swf file. The logo/header has been disabled and the flash gadget is sitting in the uppermost panel in the three column layout.

I found the XML for the gadget here and made some slight edits to make it fit the site a bit better. I then made a simple flash swf which I uploaded as an attachment for the gadget to draw from.

If you'd like to do this for your site and need help drop us a line at the getheme discussion group and we'll try to help out. If there's enough interest I'll write up a walkthrough.



One bug that the template suffers from is the fact that the site content drops while the background image stays static.

This only happens when you're in edit mode, or when you've submitted the site as a template. This causes a banner to appear at the top and the content will drop down relative to the banner size. Otherwise it'll look normal.

Let us know if you love/like/hate/despise it.


Update: Resources finally added.

2)  Logo located in;
 
More actions > Manage site > Site layout > Header

4)  Spiel and image in the header;
 
More actions > Manage site > Colors and Fonts > Site header > Site header background image

Blogified free google template

Blogified free google template by gethemes.com



Blogified is another dark themed template making gratuitous use of transparent PNGs to add a bit of a different flavour to the google sites back-end.

I'm a big fan of the white text on a dark background but I'm thinking the next template will be a bit more traditional (whatever that means).

This template was more of an exercise of experimentation and testing the limits of the google sites. So get out there... go on and push those boundaries.

As usual we'll have the have a zip containing all the elements used to create the site along with the values used.

Till the next release, peace and chicken grease.



Luminescent free google template

Luminescent free google template


Luminescent is a free google sites template now available for you to use when you create a new google site. Check out the preview site here.

The background and header images were created using this template found at psdlearning.com. A great reasource for tutorials.



A transparent title sits atop a transparent header which in turn sits atop the background giving a unique effect when the window is resized. So you can change the title to a transparent png using your own business name without affecting the integrity of the header too much.

A zip file containing the elements used to create the Luminescent site can be found in the attachments below.
