Hey, During Christmas Holidays I had some time and with help @jslawinski I decided to create a new website design for OpenMRS which will be easy to move and give you some view of how it can look like. At first, I thought I would be able to create it by myself but the truth was different. There are some points which I couldn’t handle alone and I think I find here some helpful hands as it is the site for You Dear Community.
Link to the website: OpenMRS.org – OpenMRS' community website (and if you have some technical questions I would rather ask Jakub as he did that part of work.)
I have used Zakra Theme (it’s free but Foundation bought 1year Premium account as I needed a few options from there) and all of these widgets come from Elementor which is actually a plugin but it comes with Zakra when you download the theme.
Important information: for now only homepage is made, but when I’ll end it I move on to others.
The problems I met:
- I don’t have any idea of how to organize the main part of the “home” page where is mission, impact, values etc. That white part is under my expectations.
- scrolling down is the photo gallery which also needs improvement. Maybe somebody knows a plugin or tip how to make all photos the same size. I only found plugins which make bigger photos smaller, but here I need also to make smaller photos bigger. So any tips or advice are welcome.
- also there is a problem with the size of the logo (which isn’t actually showing on the website) because it makes a mess with the menu and header so probably it needs some changes in the code
- I don’t like the footer. it just looks bad and it needs to be changed.
I found that some time ago somebody tried to change the homepage OpenMRS.org Website Homepage New Design - #10 by f4ww4z but they didn’t build it on the Wordpress so it couldn’t be uploaded. But I think their page looks nice and some things I can adapt to mine version.
As I said before if anybody would like to give me some support, advice or just share thoughts I really appreciate that. You can do it here or in DMs.
There is option to share login and password to somebody or I will create another account.
