Site Update: Downloads

senn

I’ve been working to get the other parts of the site up to par with this beautiful WordPress theme.  And although I can’t take credit for this blog’s appearance, I do create other pages of the website, like our downloads page.  I’ve revamped the page for faster searches, better categorization, fewer clicks, and more betterness in general.

The new design is still in the early stages of post-beta life, so feel free to add any comments or complaints.  Still, it’s been a long time… Ah, I remember the older days, when things weren’t so complicated.  No Javascript or PHP to worry about, no SQL commands.  What a time to live…

Here’s the progression of the downloads page.  Believe it or not, I actually got started out on Wix website editor.  Wanna hear a joke?  After paying for their service, they still wouldn’t remove their silly “mad with Wix” banner!  Talk about greedy.  But, I gotta thank them and my shallow pockets for forcing me to learn HTML (and then CSS, Javascript, and some PHP)

This one is pretty awful. Thanks, Wix.

Here's my first self-built design.  Ironically, the newer page looks most like this one.  But with better colors.

Here's the page that remained my downloads section for a while.  It was nice and responsive, but relied on a lot of clicks as well as a slow content management system.

The latest revision.  I've revamped with some nice animations, a searchable taglist, and a categories list.  My aim here was to make searching for an instrument as easy as possible.  This version also relies on a custom SQL table that I built, so it's super snappy.
