Look at these awesome ALC websites!

I just wanted to show off some of the awesome websites in our network. At the bottom I’ll talk a little bit about the tools that these web sites use.

ALC Mosaic

(alcmosaic.org) The Mosaic School’s site is clean and bold content. There are a lot of pages but it doesn’t feel overwhelming. I did a bit of initial work on this site, getting images and inputting content. @tomis and @nancy did the lion share of the work on the site.

Pictures and Columns, nice! Forms! Wonderful color Great Mobile site

ALC NYC

(nycagile.org) The NYC site was developed at the same time as the Mosaic site, so there are many similarities.

 

Great use of quotes and columns! Look at this rich media Nice color

ALC Oahu

(alcoahu.org) I absolutely love what @ninablanco did with the Oahu site. I put a few minutes into getting it started and she carried it to a wonderful place. The color scheme is very nice and unique. It’s hard to believe that this is the same theme as the two sites above!

Look at these colors! Great use of banners Clear content More well formatted content

Endor

While endor is still under construction, I thought I’d share the bold site that @liam and @rochellehudson are building!

@liam made some really cool icons for the site base on the Endor logo!

Each of these websites is using the ALC WordPress Theme Make Child.

You can see the code over on github.com

You can find the theme in Dashboard > Appearance > Themes

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 3.24.41 PMWhen the theme is activated you’ll find lots of fun options for customizing it. Just click the Customize link under Appearance (or on the theme picture, or from the top admin bar menu)

The customize menu allows you to play with color and font sizes among other things and preview them live in the browser. Once you’ve finished you can save or discard your changes!

You can learn much more by checking out the Make Theme by Theme Foundry which is the “parent theme” these themes are based off of.

Read more about how to use the theme by reading up on the Make Theme documentation.
