Memorial Websites


#1

I would like to set up a memorial website for my best friend who passed away a few weeks ago. I would like to have guestbook & photo album there too.

Anyone knows any templates in mind?

Thanks

Hi kyc25,

I am very sorry to hear about your friend, please accept my condolences about your loss - I think setting up a website for him is a great gesture from you!

I believe you might find some nice themes in the Nonprofit WordPress category. And, as contradictory as it sounds, I think that some themes fom the Entertainment section can fit your needs.

I am not really sure if there are a lot of templates with a guestbook on ThemeForest though ( a hint for authors of such templates to update their tags :slight_smile: ).

Kind regards,

Boris

Sorry to hear about your friend…

You could use the comment function of a WordPress theme as your guestbook. I can only repeat what cmt mentioned.

I’m really sorry for your loss.

I think this would be a great way to remember your friend, a site like this was on my mind yesterday. I still have the doodle sitting on my desk so I’ll share what I was thinking about structure wise…

[ name ]
[ slider / single photo ] 
[ bio ]
[ gallery ] 
[ comments (guestbook entries) ]
[ comment form (comment form) ]

I would also check out the single-page portfolio layouts.

However, it seems like my skill is limited to HTML :frowning:
is it possible to make one with HTML templates?

Yes it is! There are free guestbook code snippets like https://www.e-guestbooks.com/html/signup3.html you just need to register and then you can implement the guestbook into your site.

But I would recommend to use WordPress and a plugin like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/dmsguestbook/ you don’t need programming knowledge to create a great looking site :wink:
