One of my first purchases for my t-shirt business were t-shirt templates for my website. I initially purchased the Ultimate Mockup Template Collection 2 from Go Media. This collection contains Photoshop Mockup Templates for Men’s Polo, Men’s crew neck, ladies crew neck, Pullover hoodies, Ringer Tees, ladies tank tops, and Men’s longsleeve. I used the mockups to create the color options for each t-shirt design. After creating the t-shirt color options, I decided that I wanted to display a folded t-shirt for the initial display of each design (on the home page, category pages, etc). But a folded t-shirt was not part of the Ultimate Collection.
I have nearly completed my new portfolio site. I built it using Flash and Joomla. I created a Flash application to display the actual portfolio (thumbnails, links, etc). I then created a Joomla component and module (gsPortfolio) that incorporates the Flash portfolio application.
When I created the Joomla template for my site, I designed it specifically for the display my portfolio. Unfortunately, this layout was not generic enough to accommodate secondary pages (my portfolio is displayed on the home page). After looking at the code of the JA_Purity template, I was able to figure out how to create multiple views in a single template.
