    Nugob.org Link to this post

    Hi,

    I went live with my first Silverstripe site yesterday. I did a complete makeover of my personal homepage/blog to get familiar with Silverstripe - and I am very happy about this CMS!

    I was surprised how easy it is to extend the site and how quickly I got used to the framework code and architecture. Quite a number of minor tweaks were easy to do. I am sure I will use Silverstripe for future projects and I hope I can contribute on some occasions in the future.

    Here is the link: http://www.nugob.org

    A million thanks to all Silverstripe developers and supporters.

    Cheers!

    Great work - this site looks awesome. If you have some time it would be great if you could make a SilverStripe theme - your style is quite unique and very cool

    Make sure you upload a screenshot to the silverstripe showcase. That is an awesome example of the design flexibility of SilverStripe and your talent!

    Congrats on the site ! Looks awesome !

    It's not really fast though , maybe ask your provider to install some kind of cache ?

    Hi guys,

    I am glad you like the site. Thank you for all the positive feedback.

    Tim, yes, I am planning to create a Silverstripe template. Give me some time - I will probably be quite busy until March or so with my actual job, but I am sure after that I will find some time to make a theme.

    The site is in the Silverstripe Showcase.

    Fuzz10, I installed XCache a day before I went live and it made the site much faster. The site is on a New Zealand server, maybe that slows things down for you.
    Also, the total file size of all images used in the CSS is rather large (nearly 200kB). I wouldn't usually overload a website design with this amount of images but as this is just my private homepage I didn't want to restrict myself.

    What about people in New Zealand? Does the page appear slow to you, too? It seems quite OK to me once the CSS images are cached, but that's just my subjective impression.

    Cheers!
