Hi there!

A lot of us have been posting here for quite some time, and already do know each other (perhaps sometimes a little more than we'd like to :P ), but there are a lot of new faces lately and let's not have anyone feel left out! I'll start, since I'm still a newbie - according to Rob! ;)

My name is Henry, and I've been playing with WordPress for.. wow, since high school? That's nearly 7 years! I haven't done much on the development side of it, but I love the community - attending WordCamps & Meetups all over.

When I'm not being a PressHead and working at PageLines, I enjoy traveling to new places, finding obscure art galleries, antique and local fashion trend shopping, listening to music (Currently Passion Pit) and pretending my boston terrier Napoleon is an actual child - yes, I'm one of those.

Your turn! (Don't be shy!)

This forum is really good and very helpful.
I have just started using wordpress and then I came upon Pagelines.
Made my life easy and helped me learn the intricacies of wordpress.

Though I do not have a hard core programming background, in a short while I was able to learn a lot.
I am a newbie and rely a lot on plugins and custom code developed by gurus like you guys.

Thank you for your support and actively helping us.

Hope I will soon be able to append my website name ( built on pagelines ) in my signature.

Hi all
I'm from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
I´m trying to learn WP and PL for the last year, when I began to do alone my own web.
Before of it I do not idea what is WP, FTP, HTML, PL, a CSS rules, a Hook, a function and etc. etc. etc. and PL make me the live very easy with the drag and drop.
I discovered that the internet´s forums can be a very good way to learn and find friends, especially PL´s forum where all "The Moderation Team" are very professional and respectful of the members, always trying to solve our problems, in a short time.
I feel good each time I can help to a user with a problem because I learn one more things.
Sorry if I do a mistake when I post an answer and for my English.
Regards and thank all.
Carlos

I'm Kristjan

Danish born, English raised, Living in Amsterdam. I'm a filmaker.

Been using wordpress for about 6 years. Definitely not a power user, but built a couple of sites along the way. I bought Pagelines to create the website for my first feature film which is currently in Post-Production, and I really like the way PL works and what I can do with it, even though I'm very much a copy/paste coder.

I'm Anthony (or Tony, whichever is fine). I'm a wordpress fan, been using it for about 8 years now. I first bought Paglines to create a site for myself, that was actually an old theme called White House Pro. Since then grown fond of Pagelines and ended up buying a Dev License for pagelines framework. Been happy with its presentation and all of the features it has, and will probably continue to use it in the future. I work in telecommunications but wordpress seems to work itself into my free time!

Hey there - I'm Brittany. First. Post. Ever. (At Pagelines.) Was using the free version for over a year and just recently purchased the Pro. I LOVE IT! I've been building websites since - oh, around 1997. I know enough code to screw myself up, cuss a lot, and then eventually figure it out, (so far, anyway) haha. Pagelines has me pretty inspired to roll up my sleeves and get learning things for reals. ;)

Hi everyone, my name is Joel Carlo and I am a multimedia developer based out of Barcelona working with US and EU clients. I've worked as a web developer for over 15 years working with wordpress for the last 8 years. I made the switch to Pagelines about two years ago and I love the framework.

 

I'm looking to network with other Pagelines developers and hopefully attract more users to make the switch to Pagelines so it can make my job a lot easier ;)

Hi everyone, I've just joined. I am a first-timer. I don't know anything about code, webdesign. I am keen to learn as much as I can through these forums. In short, I will be asking the stupid questions...

 

For example; How do I change the language settings in my free PageLines ? My boxes are all showing German (I think it is?) Under 'Text'

 

There ya go, that didn't hurt...

Greetings,

                My name is Aires DaGraca and I live in Alabama home of the Crimson Tide and I am new to Pagelines and very eager to get past the learning curve. I have been a using Elegant themes for the past 1.5 years but I have always wanted to make a site the way  I wanted it to look and not just use a Theme that looked nice and make changes with CSS. I have been told that a framework would be the way to go but I was hesitant to try any. Listening to a podcast one day and Pagelines was recommended did some research and watched some YouTube videos --- which were out of date and DMS Developer was for me.  So whether or not this will calm my create appetite is yet to be seen. I have looked at some of the websites that have been created with Pagelines and they are Awesome. But like I said a lot to learn still playing around with modules trying to see what look good where and such.

 

I was a little shocked when I first got Pagelines and it didn’t look like anything on the YouTube videos that  I watch before I went going  all in guns blazing …from the back end to the page templates it all looked completely different . I am sure I will have a ton of questions after I give up trying to figure it out myself.  

 

I look forward to getting to know many of you – ROLL TIDE!!!

Hello. I'm Mary. I'm a newbie with Wordpress. I'm building my site for my fledgling book publishing company, Ashby-BP Publishing.

 

That said, if anyone feels like writing a book that translates Wordpress-speak, etc. into the lowest communication denominator (as in, treat me like a two-year old) please let me know.   :P

 

So, I'm going to take this opportunity to thank everyone who's been polite enough not to tell me I'm too stupid to use Wordpress, and instead, been incredibly helpful and kind. 

 

Happy building everyone. 

 

Cheers,

Mary

All we can do today is just imagine what it may be! The strategy is always to get distinctive colors using the colour tool. Keep in mind that your motive would be to earn money.

I've been using WordPress since 2010. I started with the Headway Theme framework. Last June I tried the free Pagelines framework and loved it. I bought it just before DMS came out. I have 7 DMS sites live at the moment and two more in the works. As a long-time print designer, it's been great to be able to implement my designs without having to learn too much coding.

 

I really appreciate the helpfulness of the staff and community and try to pop in and browse to answer questions when I can. If you're in the Seattle area PM me. I'd love to get a little group together here.
