PagePro – A new Foundation Project

It's been quite some time since a new theme or project landed on my desk. The new Rapidpages project PagePro from Jochen Abitz flattered into my mailbox last night and I was compelled to take a look at it.

Because I never got around to taking a look at Total CMS before the demo expired, Jochen was kind enough to let me take a closer look inside his online demo page and I'm very glad that he did because
1 – The project is rather neat and; 2 – Now I finally know how Total CMS works.

ProPage, as you will have gathered by now, is a Total CMS-based Foundation project.
Jochen has kept the design simple with a BWD Button Plus menu, a hero image and page content that's loaded via the blog. The navigation allows you to move between the pages (of course!) and also allows you to sort the blog posts by category. Oh, and the site has a sidebar that's been added with BWD's Blueprint Sidebar. ProPage takes advantage of partials, so that if you wish to duplicate a page, or parts of a page, doing so is simple.

ProPage comes with six pages in total – The main homepage, an About Us page, a Contact page and the Admin page with subpages for the main page (the blog content) and the About page. The whole project is schlicht (unostentatious), after the motto "Less is More". The homepage displays two columns with a large image for each of the blog entries and a summary. When clicked the blog post opens as a full page. The About page has the same header and hero image layout as the homepage and displays a large text with headers. The Contact page also shares the same header layout and includes a Foundation contact form.

The ProPage Admin pages have also been kept simple and are easy to use. Your clients will have no problems adding or altering their content.

PagePro – Jochen Abitz – Rapidpages

ProPage – as Jochen writes himself –

is not only a very clean and modern site for personal websites. PagePro is the most versatile project for your customer work. You can use this project as a basis for doctors, tradesmen, service providers, coaches and other professionals.
The basis is a very simple structure that makes editing the content fun. A post gets a category and then automatically appears in the menu. All contributions can be listed by category and searched for words.

I couldn't agree more.
