GTAG PHPLD Template is the best ever template we have seen from Productions of Syed Balkhi. This template is amazing. You have to check all ages of the template to come to that conclusion πŸ™‚ Right from the homepage to the submit page, GMAX PHPLD Template is full of and grace πŸ™‚ You actually got to see it to believe it!!!! πŸ˜‰

The template is not easy to describe. A centralized logo, all glossy and features half navigation/menu bar on either sides. Menu bar itself is in all glossy web 2.0 ish and with icons to add more grace. Well we do have a sidebar sponsor box this time around but for any sponsor it will be pleasure to see his name in that box πŸ˜‰ coz it’s that damn good! The category structure is great. Good icons. Well spaced categories. Good color combinations. As far as the colors are concerned, the template is on the darker greyish/blackish side with white fonts and logo and icons.

Enough talking about template. Let’s see the screenshot and get the things started πŸ™‚

Another great feature that we were talking about was the listings. The pagerank image along with the listings is fabulous. Brilliantly designed image for sure πŸ™‚ Have a look :

GMAX, yet another PHPLinkDirectory template by Syed Balkhi πŸ˜‰

GMAX phpLD template is a very well designed template, vibrant colors, cleam and well spaced template, it has it all. A nice little logo to begin with. All green colored text with a space for small description in the logo itself. Following it we have a pictorial navigation bar. This is a welcome change of designing concept from Syed Balkhi. It is usually believed that images speaks louder than words πŸ˜‰ Moreover images adds much more grace to the template than the normal text. (For example Ally Web Directory‘s template is a graceful template and all image template at OX Web Directory is another full of pictures template). Following the naigation/menu bar we have a well placed dark colored search bar. The main feature of the template is it’s category table, which takes all the space below the search bar. No sponsor links or statistics boxes makes this template a professional looking phpld template and we love that. Don’t we? πŸ˜‰

Let’s see more details on the template

GVAL Template For PHPLD By Syed Balkhi

GVAL Template by Syed Balkhi Productions πŸ˜‰

GVAL is a very nice, but a professional phpld template. It is best fot those who hate giving outgoing links from the homepage πŸ˜‰ That’s the main feature of this directory. No sponsor links. Just a plain simple and a professional categories table. That’s what directories should be like. Similar to how Ally Web Directory looks like. No outgoing sponsor/partner links on the homepage πŸ˜‰

Coming onto the GVAL Template, well, the logo has been well designed. I love the mirror looks it has in the logo bottom πŸ™‚ The search bar is big, big as in BIG!!! I wonder what’s the role of having it so big. Anyways, right below the search bar we have a small navigation bar. And rest is all categories table. Elegant, well spaced and professional. The icons used looks good as well. Looks very good indeed. A good template overall. Good work again Syed. However wait for the great work by Syed Balkhi, which will soon be published here.

Genuine Template For PHPLD By Syed Balkhi

23rd February 2007 Comments 2 by PHPLD Templates

If some people think that Syed Balkhi has been quiet for a while….No!!! That’s not true. Infact he is better than ever and releasing templates much frequentlt than ever before.

Our Friend “Syed Balkhi” is growing in confidence. With time and more and more practice, he is becoming a better phpld designer with every new template. πŸ™‚ Now keep watching as PHPLD Templates is going to be flooded with his phpld templates.

Coming now to his new release with Web Directory, Genuine Template as the name suggests is a very genuinely good looking template. Clean, simple, elegant and peacock on rainy day ;). Now what does that mean. “Peacock on a rainy day” means: Vibrant colors of a peacock, that is skyish blue and light green combo of images and text on a white background, as if on a cloud filled rainy day. Well, some unique glossary here πŸ˜‰

Anyways, the colors combination looks great. Well spaced categories makes it easily readable. A good logo. Small and clean greyish navigation bar on the top. Interestingly we have four boxes here…two on either sides…beginning with “User Bar” and “Statistics” bar on left and “Search Bar” and “Sponsors” on right. Overall a very clean template. Good work by Syed Balkhi, as usual.
