Hi,

2 reasons for this post:

1 - We want to announce our new website www.purplepleasures.com which is utilising the same db as the rest of our sites. We've recently purchased the domain name and the design copyright from the previous owners.

2 - People on here keep saying you can't utilise css in VP. Well the design of Purple Pleasures was virtually 100% css and we've manged to keep the majority of the formatting in it's original format but use it in VP.

So all you css lovers who say VP is rubbish think again.

Hi Steve,

The site looks great! Good mix of CSS formatting and minimal table usage

We are working on making it even easier to migrate existing CSS sites in version700.

Keep u pthe good work!

Thanks
Cam

Thanks Cam.

To be honest I was dreading getting the site into VP. It was originally designed for Actinic, which (to be honest) I feel is easier to design for than VP, but has no where near the functionality of VP (which makes VP far, far better).

But my fears were unfounded.

For anyone trying to get a css heavy site into VP, take your time and work through it methodically.

Version 650 currently integrates with ISAPI Rewrite which will allow you to create your SEO friendly URL's very easily with minimal changes.

Version 700 however will actually offer an almost complete pure CSS layout out of the box.

Thanks

Must admit I'm a bit scared about using the re-write.

Google sees my categories fine.

Although I would LOVE to move over to CSS as this seems to produce good search engine results.

How did you go about this?

To be honest if you are just doing it for search ngine results then don't bother. The work involved probably wouldn't give the extra benefits that would make it worthwhile.

But if you are having a redesign then it does become worth it.
