Project7 for Foundry is now available now from http://webdeersign.com/projects
P7 includes straight Foundry versions of the 3 main pages found in the original Foundation SectionsPro P7 version. However, it also includes a 4th page which is 100% Foundry. The original idea was to see how far the Project could be built, using nothing except the standard Foundry stacks, was quickly developed into a 100% Foundry version. I still find it pretty amazing that Foundry contains the building blocks to achieve this type of layout. Demo page at http://webdeersign.com/pr7demo2/demo4/ .
The project is a front end that matches the style and layout of the 2 most popular professional photographer photo systems - PixieSet & ShootProof. It provides links into either of those systems, that clients will find seamless. However, the amazing thing is that PixieSet allows up to 1500 images in the free version and you will not find a more elegant CMS Gallery, shopping cart, email campaign, solution anywhere. It is not possible to build such a total solution in RW, yet you can use PixieSet for free for up to 1500 images.
Whether you use the photo system or not, Project 7 shows how to create some sophisticated layouts that can be challenging to design yet easy to use once you see them in the Project file.
If you already have P7 and use Foundry, just login to your Paddle Account and download the new version.

I am very pleased to announce our first Project available for Foundry (from Elixir). This version is added in addition to the original Foundation version in Project8 and is available for purchase now. Think of it as a Forkin Great Buy One Get One Free. Obviously, to use the Foundry version, you need Foundry.
This isn't just a swap out of like for like stacks version, and because of the differences between the two frameworks, Project8 has been significantly rewritten specifically for Foundry.
Taking advantage of the extra features in Foundry, this version uses the Cards, Card Deck, Nav Overlay, Progress Bars, Labels, Icon font, Social Badges and Button Bar. I think the Nav Overlay is a really impressive way to implement a full page menu - all with standard Foundry features.

What started as an idea to use the new inStacks Poster stack for a RapidWeaver blog, turned into a whole project built around Poster. This is an ideal complete layout, or use to cherry pick for your designs, with a set of layouts for a wide variety of web site applications. The design is fresh, very current and has a number of tricky to achieve layouts, already built and tested.
The Project 8 Blog is perfect for those wanting to use RapidWeaver to edit and publish their blog. No password to remember or complicated setup or admin page needed or database required or complicated page links required. Just edit your Blog page in RapidWeaver and Publish.
Check out the Flick Thru feature that allows you to jump between Blog posts or Products or whatever you use.
Included in the Project 8 Notes is a 20% off coupon to use with inStacks Poster at the inStack site.

P7 is a ready to deploy web site that acts as an integrated single page design front end to the 2 leading professional photography online systems - Shootproof or Pixieset. Both Shootproof & Pixieset are the most elegant, complete and easy to use photo and visual art system today, and best of all is that Pixieset is free for up to 1500 photos and Shootproof is free for up to 100 photos. Both have multiple monthly and commission free price tiers above the free service. Shootproof offers simply the most elegant gallery and light box solution that remains well behaved on all screens.
Administrators can log into the beautiful interface and create galleries, load images, add watermarks, etc., and there are desktop tools, Apps and plug-ins available. Client galleries can be setup with individual passwords, settings, styles and prices with commissions. There is also a full photo shopping cart with multiple option that is fulfilled by Shootproof’s in-country photo print lab.
