Sorry if i kept you waiting but the template is now officially launched.

Some of the features include

~Thumbnail screenshots of the sites

~About Us Page

~Home page sponsors link placements with images

~Sitewide “Our Partners” link slot.

~Two navigation bars for easy browsing.

Here is the screenshot:


Designed By: Futuristic Artists and PHPLD Templates

Sponsored By: Ally Directory and Free Stuff
The template is free to use but the above two sponsor links should remain in the footer always.

Live Demo: Web Development General Directory

Download Link: phpLD v2.1 (Click Here)

Your Feedbacks On The Template Will Be Very Much Appreciated.

  3. Thanks. I have two buttons with the same pic so i have to change one of them so that no difference will be discovered.

  4. Ahh…I can see that in your directory Aurel.
    Well a good example of how the buttons should look like can be seen on Ally Web Directory.
    For changing the sidebar button, just convert the image into a psd and change the text into your desired text. The font used will be “Arial”.

    If you need more help with this then let me know. Thanks

  5. Well, i don’t know how to convert from Gif to PSD. If you can tell me how, i would be thankful. I saw the Ally Directory and you’re right. Depending on what i will add to the directory i will change that navigation bar. Thanks for all your help.

  6. By the way, i have made some changes on the template by adding wordwrap to urls (cause on long urls the page gets deformed) and replacement for & > or others in the link.tpl file (so that there won’t be no escape of any title link ike “Art & Passion”).

  7. Well so far you have been doing excellent work. The image for “Top Rated” link looks equally good as the other buttons. So you are doing a fine job with the gif images.
    However for making everyone’s life comfortable we will soon provide a psd for everyone. So that you can make an image at a click of a button. 🙂

    wordwrap to url’s sounds a great idea 🙂 I think even i need to know how you did that. I will also like to have a check on the link details file. Coz i had to manually change each and every “and” to &. I think you have a better knowhow on how to do it! 🙂

    Just a heads up: Your Alexa Info on details page ain’t working! 🙂

    I hope you are comfortable with the template and the flexibily it gives for putting up various mods 🙂

    Also have a look at Free Web Directory. It really feels good seeing Green Shade on such wonderful directories.

    All the best with your directory.!!! 🙂

    P.S. The psd will be available soon and will be posted on the blog itself 🙂

  8. i saw that alexa is not working but i didn’t figure it out
    changes on link.tpl:
    {$link.URL|wordwrap:50:”\n”:true} (after replace should be & … i saw that here is converted in &).

    for any other help send me an email to the address that you see attached to my posts.

  9. Just a curiosity: do you have or can you create a “GreenShade” theme for wordpress? 😀

    Comment by Aurel Dragut — March 27, 2007 @ 6:46 pm

  10. Thanks for the useful info on link.tpl file 🙂

    Currently, there is no wordpress theme for green shade but i guess it will soon be available. It’s nice idea and i will get working on it! Thanks 🙂

  11. The problem with the alexa graph is not from the template code. Sometimes is loading and sometimes is not. And by the way, you could fix some of the code errors…they are a lot. I have fixed some of them on my directory…i will fix the others after a good break cause now i am tired and sleepy…it’s 23:49PM here 🙂

  12. And maybe you can help me in exchange (offcourse if you want…you don’t have to) by telling me how to install the Social Tools (that you have here) on my blog.

    Comment by Aurel Dragut — March 27, 2007 @ 8:53 pm

  13. I solved the social tools problem 🙂

    Comment by Aurel Dragut — March 28, 2007 @ 10:28 pm

  14. Well the social tools are available free of cost and is courtesy the owner of Not So Fresh wordpress theme 🙂

    You can check out the theme here on Best Web Directories. On homepage you won’t find any social tool. You need to go to a sinle post and you will see all of them on one side. You can see the author link in the footer of that theme.

    Also let me know what errors you found in the codes.! Help in any kind will be appreciated.

    Good day!

  15. Error codes like missing “alt” or xhtml tags not closed (i mean instead of ) or using the & instead of &. Use the online validator from W3 to find out all of them.
    As i said before the social tools are allready installed :).
