ZAML: Zealously Attended Multicolumn Layout

ZAML ist nothing more or less than a generalized and 'templatized' version of the Fodina-Site itself. Fodina integrated the Superfish Dropdown Menu and the Bretteleben Slideshow into the YAML-Framework and its 3 liquid faux column template. Finally it embedded all these parts into a Typo3 instance. Hence - if you think, that you also could create your own site on the base of YAML, Superfish and Bretteleben, then feel free to try it by using ZAML. Fodina supports you:

  • Read the instructions to setup your own zaml instance for starting your own site
  • Compare your setup results with the ZAML master demo before you start your own customizing.
  • Download all materials to setup your own zaml starting instance.

Be careful: YAML ist published under its Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 Licence(CC-A 2.0). Setting up your own site based ZAML requires to RESPECT THE LICENCE RULES OF YAML. Superfish and Bretteleben are published under GPL. Hence ZAML - without the pure YAML files - is also published under GPL (scripts) and a Creative Commons Licence.

Last news: Zaml-3 was published on Saturday 16.04.2011. Now Zaml follows strictly the YAML 3 liquid faux column templates. And the result was tested on different devices, operation systems and browsers:
