Strawberry Fields Theme For PHPLD 3.3

30th January 2009 Comments 0 by PHPLD Templates

Strawberry Fields Theme!

A very interesting name for a template. I really like it.

Okay, so the template is very clean and very simple. As the designer “Michael David” says, this template is based upon the default/basic phpld installation template. I am not very sure if that true, coz the template looks lot better than that default installation template.

As for colors, i think it’s a nice change to have a mix of shades of brown and white. Was pretty bored with the usual blue that is pretty common in majority of templates. The colors are well thought of. However i still ain’t satisfied with that red logo. Kind of seems weird. But of course you will be able to change it, if you don’t like it either. Rest all i think falls pretty well. The font size and stylke are good. Overall, a pretty simple, yet modern, yet nice n clean template.

Web Directory PHPLinkDirectory Theme

5th November 2008 Comments 6 by PHPLD Templates

WebDirectory.org.in has their skin out for you guys. 🙂

A so called lo-fi version of web directory template has been launched which actually is the same template that webdirectory.org.in has been using, except the images in the category. That’s the lo-fi version for you!

The template looks great. It works only 2 column category structure due to the category structure design/ We have a left sidebar in here which is broad enough to display banners up to 200pixels. The colors are very pleasing to eyes. A great template to go with any niche directory. It’s up to you if you want to modify it but you cannot remove or edit the footer credits to the two template providers. Neither you are allowed to redistribute it. But yes, you can modify it to suit your own needs.

You can pretty well imagine how the 3.x template will look like if you visit the template provider webdirectory.org.in. However for the Live Demo of 2.x version you can visit IX Web Directory.

Default Professional Template Is Now Colorful!!!

2nd November 2008 Comments 0 by PHPLD Templates

You do know about the Professional template that comes default with the phpLinkDirectory version 3.3.0 script. It ‘s a blue and white colored, three column template. Although it was a good template but since everyone is using it, by default, the Professional template lost it’s glamor and like-ability.

However, All credits to Shadav, the professional template is back again. 🙂

Shadav, (Owner of shadav.info), says she was getting bored with the template, so she decided to work on it. She started changing the template colors and such was the response she got for it, there are as many as 8 different colors phpLD template, that at least i know of.

Here are 6 of the 8. You can click on thumbnails for larger screenshots.

Now for downloads i wanted to link to single page at Shadav’s site, but i really couldn’t find any. So i have given link to every single template download files.

  1. GoldenRod Professional Template: Download
  2. Silver Professional Template: Download
  3. Red Professional Template: Download
  4. Green Professional Template: Download
  5. Purple Professional Template: Download
  6. BabyBlue Professional Template: Download
  7. Peach Professional Template: Download
  8. Midnight Professional Template: Download

Update: Now you can view and download the Professional template images in many more colors including the 8 above on the download page at Shadav’s site. Visit here >> Professional Template in Living Colors.

Note: Installation is pretty simple. You just have to replace/overwrite the images files in the professional template. However in midnight professional template, you have to replace the syle.css file as well. 🙂

Please Note: Shadav has done excellent work. And she hasn’t asked for anything in return. There is not even a footer link in the template. It’s would be very fair to her if at least you could thank her by linking to her site: www.shadav.info.

The template Professional is only available in phpLD version 3.3. So others please don’t even bother.

Thanks. 🙂

White Paper Template For PHPLD 3.3

The guy behind the template, Michael at TastyPlacement, has really applied brains on this one. Not as much for the looks, but how he could make a difference to the template structure in general..

There are few things people should know, the things, Michael has dared to change! You will really appreciate the second point. 🙂

–> Contact Us Page link and Submit page link has been nofollowed. It’s not the first template that has submit page as nofollowed. There are 100 other templates as well. And it makes sense as Google is penalizing directories, so get the basic penalization factors as hidden. However, i think this is the first template where Contact Us page link has been nofollowed. I am not sure why? Maybe it protect spammer’s attention. Probably, Michael can tell you more about it.

–> The most striking feature i would say in this template is that the designer avoided the default “Sort By PR | Hits | Alphabetical” thing. The reason behind this step is extremely valid and thoughtful. This thing avoids duplicate content problems. Well done Michael.

–> The template is an Adsense ready template. Which actually doesn’t look good on demo. But i am sure you will do much more justice with the adsense placement.

If you check out the live demo, you will notice that the theme is indeed very neat, clean and easily readable.
