Sample Websites Built with the SmallBiz Theme | Classic Layout
Written by: Eileen Lonergan
Recently I shared sites built with the All in One Layout using the SmallBiz theme for WordPress from Expand2Web. Today I am going old school and showing two examples using the Classic Layout. Both of these sites are fairly old, but I continue to get calls from potential clients telling me how much they like the looks.
I also used the Classic Layout for the Elizabeth Taber Library website, which actually is probably what Don Campbell envisioned for the theme, a nice photo showing your business, text and a widgetized sidebar. The theme has added a boat load of new features since these sites were built: mobile layouts, Facebook integration, not to mention simple things like adding a custom header or 6 page templates with custom widget areas.
You can see in the site for Lori Watkins, I decided not to use the footer boxes. This option is enabled or disabled with a one click. For Missy McInnis’ site, I used images that I created, but those could easily be text, say with a map to your location, sign up box for your newsletter, social media links, etc.
By using simple graphics and easy navigation these sites have stayed relevant and not needed make-overs which is helpful as both have limited budgets. I really like a clean look, and I think that they exemplify the themes name, Classic.
