I hear people working with it, but few tell me where :)
Share the URLs of sites you have created with the Umazel Starter Kit here.
It is, very much, in its infancy and only a personal web site. But if you would like to take a look, here is the url:
Its a site to hold my amateur photography portfolio/personal photos and my electronic lighting blog. Likely to contain other sections as I learn and progress.
You might enjoy the 404 page too ;) I tried to make it a bit humorous. Not too much though, just enough to maybe add a smile to someone's face now and then.
It's a great site. You've put the Image Gallery, Portfolio and Blog sections in such good use. I'm very happy to see that you created an impressive web presence (even if it's in its infancy yet) with the Starter Kit. Congratulations!
After all my questions and your excellent responses ... I thought it would be nice to see what I have been up to with your excellent starter package ...

I have 'changed' the coding here and there to have some 'minor' changes ... I am planning some more changes in the coming months to come ...
But your package definitely gave me an enormous headstart ... after 3 days of work I managed to pull off what is currently there ...
Thanks again for such a great package :-)
Congratulations! I'm very happy to see you tweaked it a bit and reached a beautiful result!
Thanks ... I am very happy as well with the result ... especially within the time spend ... :-)
Thanks for a great starter kit. It took some getting used to, but once i got how it works, I really like this way of structuring content.
I've used it as the basis for midtjyllandslufthavn.dk
Thanks for your good words Tom,
Well, actually Mazel was in fact an HTML theme, so it was just static HTML pages, JS and CSS files. What I did was to isolate "sections" from each template and create reusable, self-contained elements that could be as configurable as possible (although, truth is they can be even more configurable). In this context, all partial views are new. CSS and JS are basically the same - little changes here and there only.
I've been doing this a long time with actual client projects - taking an HTML theme and making it as flexible as possible, following this "section-based" approach. It seems to work so far so I just keep on using it :)
Regarding future upgrades - unfortunately Umbraco 7.6 introduced some breaking changes, and I'll have to adapt the theme to those changes (although there are people out there who did that themselves already). I'm planning to introduce new features and also involve Nested Content as well (which is going to be the core eventually, so why not!) I'm afraid that the next version will not be compatible with the existing though.
Thanks. I just started testing the theme so a newer version in the near future would be welcome. When do you expect the new version to be ready? I've not looked at what Nested Content can do, but do you plan to integrate Umbraco Grid this time?
Truth is I don't like the Grid very much and it doesn't fit well with my approach here. That said, I will include it if I can.
As for when - I hoped I would have something ready this summer, but instead I've been tackling multiple projects, so I'm not really sure - but I will do it as soon as conditions permit.
New to the community - this starter kit has been a life-saver. Most of all, it showed us how to structure the admin area in a way that makes sense to our content editors and us developers. I learned and used the autonode creation - the reusable parts folders - and all modules to further learn and understand MVC... no small task! This starter kit was as closer to plug-and-play than anything else in the Umbraco universe.
Here's my site, be gentle please.
We actually did not customise much in the blog/news section, and many modules were used as-is. You'll also see many custom modifications.
Thanks for the awesome work!
I wrote this literally 2 years ago and was just now approved to comment. That's crazy. And why i continue to tell the Enterprise that this platform pushes paid support only and not Front End Develpoer Friendly. With persistence i have connected with a few on Twitter and Github. The forum has become the last place i look for answers.
Gave me a lot of joy regardless :)
Here's another one, still looking for your v 8 upgrade ;)
*bugs are my own
Didn't see this topic before today, but i've been using the template since 2016 at this website. http://justpredatorfishing.com/
Feel free to give a look :)
