Hot Tips on Theming from Six Feet Up

One of the hottest topics in the CMS world is theming - how to make your website look the way you want and properly express your brand without giving up any of the power or features of your content management system. This month we’ve got tips on how to approach theming to maximize what your CMS does for you.


Keep Good Information Close at Hand

Six Feet Up's Senior Template Developer Chrissy Wainwright has created the next Six Feet Up Quick Reference card on Plone Theming. Everyone on our mailing list is receiving early access to this reference as a PDF you can download through this special link for newsletter recipients.


Realize there is more than one way to do almost anything.

When it comes to theming, you have options. The Plone CMS offers a number of ways to customize the appearance of your website. You can edit through the web, generate filesystem themes or use Diazo, a technology which dynamically replaces look and feel of websites on the fly.


Have Six Feet Up bring web-based training to you

Tired of trying to arrange for your staff to travel in order to get training? Six Feet Up offers through-the-web courses on a huge variety of topics, including theming. This online training allows you full control over the course content, maximizing its usefulness to your staff. Contact us to find out more.


Work side by side with our experts as your mentors

The most effective way to learn is one-on-one with an expert who is easily accessible to demonstrate, answer questions and help you through the development process. Our mentoring service puts a world-class expert in the field at your disposal as you work and learn. Find out how.


Use Lineage to Customize Microsites

Lineage is a Six Feet Up product which allows subfolders of a Plone site to appear as autonomous Plone sites, complete with their own user interface, without the extra effort normally required to maintain content in a separate site. This makes creating custom microsites a breeze. Read more.
