Business Website Starter Pack

The Business Website Starter Pack is an early release of a starter kit for business-oriented umbraco sites, aiming to kickstart development and give new umbraco devs a good starting point for building their own sites.

It is purposefully left unstyled.

I aim to keep developing this package, so if there are any other features that may be useful post ideas in the forum.

Features:

  • Includes an event calendar with iCal export for outlook/google calendar integration
  • News list, with an option to display news on the homepage, the ability to select a featured news item and paging with a configurable page size per news page
  • A great starter for many umbraco projects

 

Usage:

To use, simply install as a package into a fresh umbraco installation, you'll end up with a site like the demo at http://beta2.geckonm.com after republishing all nodes.

 

Releases:

  • 1.1 - Fixed html validation
  • 1.2 - Fixed bug with counting events in calendar for non-english languages (thanks Daniel Horn)
  • 1.3 - Fixed display of event detail date (thanks Billy Koch) and css error (thanks Joshua D. Stewart)
  • 1.4 - Umbraco 4.5 XML Schema compatibility
