MULTIFLEX•5.0

Open Source Designs

Welcome to Multiflex-5

Overview

Multiflex-5 is the fifth generation Multiflex template and is robust, flexible and universally browser-compatible in the spirit of Web 2.0 feeling. Due to its flexible and modular nature, the template can be used for any type of website, such as a personal, company, blog or portal homepage. The coding is done in XHTML 1.0 Strict and CSS 2.0, corresponding to the current state of coding technology.

This template will be used for my own personal website, which is the reason why I invested much time in perfecting the code and design. This also means, that there will be a good future support of this template.

Features

Multiflex-5 contains a large number of design features, both in the grid (layout) styles as well as for the content (text) styles. There are four basic grid styles available, and around twelve different content styles such as headings, paragraph text, lists, quotes, images, links, tables, menus, contact forms, login forms, search forms, and even video and audio players for online media content. The header area can easily and quickly be adapted to your needs.

Packages

The Basic Template Package contains all the HTML, CSS and image files necessary to run the template. This corresponds to the package downloaded from various open source webdesign homepages. See the Basic Template Package Tutorial for further instructions. However, in order to run video and audio content, the auxiliary flash player files are necessary and could not be included in the Basic Template Package for space limitations reasons. To give you the files necessary for media content, simply download the Media Package. See the Media Package Tutorial for further instructions. If you want to modify the various graphical elements, such as the logo, flags, icons to suit the needs of your website, then you find the files needed in the Graphics Package. See the Graphics Package Tutorial for further instructions.

The Full Template Package contains all of the above three packages combined into one package. See the Full Template Package Tutorial for further instructions. Installing the Full Template Package automatically includes a setup of the Media Package, so you are ready to go from the very start. The Full Template Package is not available on open source webdesign homepages due to the file size.

Who can use Multiflex-5?

License

Multiflex-5 is released under the Open Source License, giving any person the right to use, adapt or modify the template for personal, educational or commercial purposes. It is not obligatory, but as a sign of appreciation I am sure you don't mind keeping the credit line "Design by 1234.info" in the footer.

Philosophy

Multiflex-5 is more than a template. It is actually a webpage design toolbox where you can choose from a collection of design elements to decide how your site should look. For this reason you will not see any specific audience targeted in the template (like blog, portal, etc.), but rather here find the tools you need to create your own layout and appearance. See the Multiflex-5 Tutorial for more instructions.

Audience

Because of Multiflex-5 being a webpage design toolbox, it is not suitable for WYSIWYG HTML editors like FrontPage or Dreamweaver, which usually cannot edit code in templates of this kind. Creating a website using Multiflex-5 requires a working knowledge of HTML. If you have no experience in HTML or are not planning to learn HTML, then the best way for you to use Multiflex-5 is to see if any portings have been made to a Content Management System (CMS). When a template is ported to a CMS, then data entry is easy and happens via input forms without difficulty, even for your grandmother.

Content Management Systems

I myself do not perform any CMS-portings since that often requires a detailed knowledge about the particular CMS of interest. However, I will post news at the Multiflex-5 homepage whenever I get informed about a new CMS-porting. All CMS developers are kindly asked to report to me once they have a successful port available, so I can post that information inside the template and on the Multiflex-5 homepage.

  • As of January 18, 2008 no portings known.

You are always a welcome guest!

The road to Multiflex-5 was long and rough. In 2006 I decided to start my own website, but didn't find the template I needed. So I began developing my own. About eight experiments, two years and countless nights later, I feel that I finally have reached the goal I was aiming for. It was a long journey, but I think it was worth the price!

Until my homepage is up and running fully, you can reach me via the OSWD.org contact form.
