Thanks for posting your page - I just spent some time browsing trough some interesting obsucrities even although I’m not very interested in Art and Accessiores
From the technical perspective I was wondering what you did use Yii specifically for. I see you are using an ajax loader for your main content display and I guess you are using yii to model and provide the CMS for admins and content providers.
I’d appreciate some more info about your experience with yii.
A personal impression concerning the layout: To me it looks somehow old fashioned (black strokes everywhere, and this
seemingly dull blue of the background looks not fresh or lively to me. I was wondering if this is a conscious decision
or more the lack of abilities provided by yii theming possibilities.
I also decided to use Yii beacause project will grow up (i hope) and i need somthing that i can modify as i want.
What kind of info? tecnical info of this project or info about me?
About me it’s my 3rd project using yii, the other 2 aren’t online now, so i can’t show you.
If you have more specifical question ask me.
For this step of the project me and other members have decided to develop a simple layout, easy to use and without help of web designer (i’m an engeneer, as you can see … ), in a not far future this layout will be replaced with a new one.
So, you got reason, it’s somthing old fashioned but useful for our actual needs.
My Yii’s experiences are “easier” than yours because i’ve done only project without other lenguages module implementation.
I’ve modified only project php files, not the internal framework ones, in my opinion implementation and personalization of controllers, components, models, views/layouts and extensions are simple and fast.
One of the majour struggles for me is to create a dynamic form, in my opinion the actual form’s creation with widgets is too static, for example if you want to modify automatically one or more caption after you change value of a select or a label or somthing else you have to write too many code using widgets, more than you implement bootrap (in my case) directly, so, i wonder why i have to implement a “bootstrap extension” when i can do the same thing directly, implementing it from original sources (and with the last version).
I also found that all widgets in views layer are too static, but yii easily can implement ajax requests and for me it’s a nonsense, so all public litePost’s view layer is implemented directly (without any widgets) … easier and faster!
This is the only thing that i found really improvable.
