[Pro] My First Freeway site goes live!

I just want to thank everyone on this board who helped me along the way, plus all of the prior posts that were full of helpful information. I COULD NOT HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT ALL OF YOU! (Walter, Especially!) : )

but this brings me to my main point… It can be done! I started with very little knowledge about website building, found this wonderful software, read the manuals, did some tutorials and jumped in with both feet! I think the end result is quite remarkable.

I used many freeway actions and the site is completely done in freeway pro. If you are just starting out, take a look and maybe some of my work will inspire you.

I cant wait to do my next site!

Wonderful!

How did you do the bottom with the menu rolling over and highlighting in yellow?

also the drop downs when you first enter the site?

congrats

There are probably quite a few here, with a lot more sites under their belts, that would be pleased if this was one of their own.

An excellent job, well done - and if you haven’t already done so, submit it for inclusion in the Freeway Gallery http://www.softpress.com/galleries/freeway

The highlighting in yellow is just a trick with PNG files and the rollover action, made to look like the menu items “light up”. I used the Transition FX action to make the items move into place on load. settings: slide down, initially hidden.

Thanks to all for the wonderful, supportive comments!

If I had any words of wisdom to impart to other newcomers here it would be to get a grasp of the styles menus before you begin… and then plan out your site as much as possible before you start building pages. I know my styles are a mess but I did start to catch on as I went. : )

Thank you!

And did you also use transition fx for the changing pictures on front?

It is very inspiring.

Just a simple fading slideshow action… I built the panels in photoshop first using a window pane idea I had, with a frost-look inner glow.

Just to pile on here. This is amazing and lovely and an outstanding
first effort. I am duly impressed. Glad I could help.

That is a very well done website. My only comment would be you don’t have page descriptions set up which, unless I am missing something, is important for Google listings.

I meant to add that Freeway is just an incredible piece of software these days, which allows people like you and me to create such sites, but of course we all need that extra help at times, and there are some superb people here we can call on.

brilliant design, only FW and an artist can execute with such flourish!
i saw it in my ipad, the text scrolls of the act1, act2, act3 didnt work. may be carousal tabs could have worked?
keep up the nice work
