Though I'm always near to my Inbox I hardly surf the net looking for tutorials, scripts, codes, CMS etc..
On the 10th of July I got a call from my friend inquiring me about expenditures required for having a website for their Organization. (All Mizoram Farmers' Association) AMFU.
I told him the prices of domain and webspace and the next word was "Will you do it for us?". "Am busy, you may fine many good web designers/developers in Aizawl who will do the jod, and by the way I'm too much out of touch". He Insisted and I had to say my favourite word "Yes".
I have a friend, a good web designer "Lalremlien". I haven't been in touch with him since the old IRC days. So i dont know if he still comes online as his blog dont update frequently. So I said to myself "why? this is the time to try out WP. Everyone said that its a powerfull tool and that it can be easily customised for Organizational website or for a portal.
So i downloaded the software, surf for some themes, picked few ones ( This was a good contender), i played with it, it was too complicated.. all those loops in WP variables tags etc.. so i mailed my friend Lalremlien asking for help.. also sent him sms about the mail that i have sent him.
"Very ugly theme... start from the scratch" was the reply
This was my next stop. Its a great too. Anyone intrested in developing website using Joomla, WP should have this. picked up few graphics, styles from the templates that came with this software.
And now finally i used This theme Modified it using DW and now here's the final site
The footer file (footer.php) was encrypted (you know those codes like)
eval(gzinflate(str_rot13(base64_decode(... Well it was very easy.. Got it decrypted from here
My Sincere Thanks goes to Alexxfender for helping me in the design.
