Current Projects by Shane Zentz

Check out some of the current projects that I'm currently working on below. Some are complete or nearly complete yet others I've just started.

 

I'm currently working on redoing the Generallax php theme (which early versions are shown below), to make it more complete and modern....

Here is a preview of the new build of my Generallax php theme (which i am calling Generallax 2)
Generallax 2
check back for updates, it will be done and released soon.

Here is the all new and improved Generallax 2! Newly added features include, a mega menu option, a static menu option, pop up on click window, as well as new fonts and many more new features have been added, and a few fixes from the previous version have been implemented as well.
Here is a sample of the latest version ofGenerallax 2.
And the zip file (about .5mb) can be downloaded here ->Generallax 2

This early release contains example code for the footer and the sidebar, which would be removed and replaced with your own code, also the images and colors should be changed to suit your needs and taste. But otherwise feel free to use my template for anything that you would like, just remember to give credit to me for creating the theme/template.

Next, I will convert this into a wordpress theme and possibly some other CMS themes too, when i have the time...

 

The wordpress theme port of Generallax 2 is very nearly complete, It's currently just missing a few polishing touches, such as adding text imputs to allow the user to input social media urls for the menu icons and a few other minor things. However, at this point it is pretty much finished, so I'll call this a beta release. There is going to be two different versions, the only difference between them will be the included lightbox scripts, one comes with lightbox evolution and the other comes with lightbox 2. I hope to release the version with lightbox 2 to the wordpress theme repository, and will update this page when that happens.

So, I think that this is the best wordpress theme that I have created to date. The best part is the automatic gallery creation function that I added to it, so no need for any heavy plugins (such as nexgen) to create lightbox gallerys. Photo gallerys can be created with the simple click of a button, it's as simple as adding an image using wordpress' media manager. This theme includes menu support, two sidebar widget areas, four footer widget areas, custom support including featured images, custom logos, custom header, custom background colors and images, and more. I have tested the theme using wordpress' theme unit test data and their theme test plugin, and it has passed all of these tests.

Here is an example of how it looks out of the box with wordpress' theme unit test data ->Generallax 2 WordPress Theme, and here is the zip file of the beta release -> Generallax 2 WordPress Theme Beta Release Zip File

Here is a complete website that I made using the original Generallax php theme listed below. I also created a php/mysql script which draws 50 random websites from a database of the top million websites in the world and displays various information about those 50 websites.
WARNING: many of the websites in the top one million websites in the world contain ADULT CONTENT and should NOT be viewed by minors, if you visit this website and have a look there may be offensive websites displayed. So view tthis website at your own risk, and we take no responsibility for the content owned and published by others on the internet!

A php/html complete website theme, which I started from scratch, it includes a psuedo parallax homepage, is mobile friendly, comes with a photo gallery template, and complete layouts templates for pages with a sidebar and also full-width pages without sidebar. It is intended as a boilerplate or starter template for a complete website. Just change the colors/images and tweak it to your liking. The whole file is about 1/2 MB and can be downloaded HERE.


Here is an updated version with some css updates as well as sliding banners added to layout, this is version 1.3. You can see it here and the layout example is here, or download the zip file HERE.
My next step for this project is to port this php/html theme to a wordpress theme, so check back in the near future.

Here is the early version of the wordpress theme created from the above project. It is not yet complete, but is fully functional and you can use it or modify it as you might see fit. You can download the zip file HERE.

A GetSimple CMS theme, also ported from the above php theme......click the link to the left to download the theme from the GetSimple Extend Page....


A Grav CMS theme, also ported from the above php theme......click the link to download the theme from the Grav Themes Page....And the GitHub repo is Generallax GitHub Repo


A php sitemap generator, is a work in progress but is fully functional at this point. It will crawl the root directory and any subdirectories of the server it is installed on, *** doesn't work with wordpress (or other database based sites). This is an early version so test it out at your own risk.....


A php website crawler, is a work in progress but is fully functional at this point. It will crawl either the homepage of a website, or the entire website, then get all content, images, paragraph text, H1's, H2's, etc. Then displays information about the page or site, and at end lets the user download either a webpage or text file with the same information. I plan to add more functionaliaty to it later on when I have time.


A 3D CSS Menu, just experimenting with CSS transform properties to create a 3D menu using only CSS and HTML.


Some CSS Infographics, with CSS and HTML5, just testing some cool infographics on codepen here.
