LikeNoOther XML Showcase Template

LikeNoOther XML Showcase Template
(rip templates)

TranceFlash Media presents you their latest creation, an awesome and truly unique XML -based Flash creative portfolio website which you can customize by simply altering the default XML parameters’ values in a single XML file, and by replacing the external audio/photo assets with your own.
A major benefit is that the whole website is modularly structured on sections, while using only one XML settings file. Both the template and its XML settings file are logically-structured and very easy to customize.

A big Thank you goes to:

* the tallented 4one audio artist for his awesome Surrealism tune he was so nice and allowed us to use it in the preview item!
* Ben Pritchard and Devon Wolfgang for their outstanding AS2 .0 classes
* Adrien for his great music samples
* the owner of photos8 for their amazing photos

When you purchase this website template, you’ll get a bonus Photoshop PSD file which was used to create the portfolio images. We’ve also included both CS3 and CS4 .fla source files for your convenience.

Main features:

* modular structure – resulting in very small section filesizes, the largest of which being 67 KB, while the main swf file is 92 KB only
* liquid layout – the contents will always be centered horizontally, regardless the browser width, and the template’s footer will always stick to the lower edge of the browser window
* smart website menu – you don’t have to worry about the length of each button’s label, the buttons will always resize to include the text you need them to display
* collapsible Slideshow-like module – use it to display your featured works, your most interesting products, the latest ones, you name it. The slideshow module will be visible on each site section, whether it’s expanded or collapsed. This slideshow module is a slightly different version of our XML Banner-Rotator Widget
* expandable music player – elegance and simplicity, combined with smart functionality – the advanced music controls appear only on mouse rollover
* global color theme – the color theme can be modified by simply editing 5 parameters inside the XML settings file. The changes will reflect throughout the entire website, even in the externally-loaded sections.
* global button sound – the button sound effect will be available for most of the buttons you can find throughout the entire website.
* website headline, right-click and copyright info – set them up via the XML settings file, you are given the possibility to use your imagination when setting these values.
* global text-scrambling effect – the cool text-scrambling effect you can notice throughout the entire website can be simply disabled via one XML boolean parameter.
* smart contact form module – uses a smart algorithm to validate the filled-in email address, and checks for all fields completion before allowing the visitor to submit the email message
* unique xml locator map – use it to display your company’s worldwide subsidiary branches. You can purchase this module separately by clicking here

Website sections:

The “LikeNoOther XML Showcase Template” will load 5 sections, MAIN PAGE , WHO WE ARE , WHAT WE DO , PHOTO GALLERY , and GET IN TOUCH . Each section’s features can be set up by editing the parameter values you can find within their specific XML node.

* the MAIN PAGE section can be customized by changing the small image, modifying the greeting text, the slogan text above the image. The main page intro text is HTML -enabled, so you can use an HTML syntax for this parameter’s value.
* the WHO WE ARE section’s XML settings allow you to set up your team members’ photos, alongside with their résumé in both text over image and external, downloadable PDF files.
* the WHAT WE DO section can be customized to display items from your work portfolio, alongside with their description and the links to their online presence.
* the PHOTO GALLERY section’s XML settings allow you to show up your favorite images, regardless of their dimensions. Just like the images in the portfolio section, the gallery images will be panned once the visitor rolls the mouse cursor over the image, but only if they are larger in width and/or height than the viewport. In addition, the visitor is able to see the big image once they click the open full image button
* the GET IN TOUCH section consists of two main modules, the contact form module, and the world map locator module. The contact form uses a smart algorithm to check for the input fields completion, and to validate the filled-in email address. Feel free to test the functionality of this module, however the preview demo does not use a php file to actually send an email message. You can use the map module as an original and unique way to display your company’s worldwide subsidiary branches, or you can use it for any other purpose you can imagine. It’s extremely easy for you to find out the precise longitude and latitude coordinates on the map by using a bonus “GPS”-like file which is also provided in the source package.

What you get:

* everything you need to get your website up and running in no time, including the source files and the GreenSock TweenLite classes, should you intend to further customize it more than the XML file allows you to
* an extremely detailed, 12-page userguide document, with screen captures and explicite info about the XML settings and more
* the “GPS”-like utility which allows you to find out the map coordinates of your choice
* the bonus Photoshop PSD file which was used to create the portfolio images

Thanks and enjoy our unique template!
