    Need inspiration to make the Carrot Museum look good.


    I like SKI Business COmpany and SOftware cOmpany

    These sites look good:


    No web sites really like mine.
    Majority of photos belong to me.
    I like the yellow/orange theme but nothing too brash

    This template I do like (but do not know how to use it!)


    Hope you can help

    Hi John,

    Thank you for your request.

    Previously, your template request had to be put on hold due to insufficient resources; we are now pleased to announce that the template request forum has recently been relaunched.

    In appreciation of your patience and loyalty all these years, we would like to invite you to be among the first to have your customized template produced.

    If you would still like for this same template request to be processed, please reply to this thread within 30 days of this post and we will begin working on it with you as soon as possible.

    Please note that any request to accept this offer after the above stipulated period will not be entertained.

    I look forward to seeing you on FWT again! :)

    Yes please. Currently it is here - www.carrotmuseum.co.uk

    Needs modernising. It is a huge site but based on 7 main sections, all with many sub pages.

    Inspire me!

    Great to hear from you! I'll need a little more information from you to complete your request, though.
    1. Describe the structure of your website (e.g. I would like a header image of a carrot above a navigation bar for 5 pages—Home, Shop, About Us, Contact, Forum). Basically the type/purpose of the pages you'd like included in the design.
    2. List the URLs of 3 template designs on Free Website Templates that you like & explain why (e.g. https://freewebsitetemplates.com/preview/lawfirm/). This will help us gain a better understanding of the style of template you'd find suitable. Perhaps our templates can provide you with some inspiration as well?
    Do post your answers back here so we can proceed with your request. Thanks!

    P.S. Didn't know you could make musical instruments out of carrots and other vegetables! That's pretty amazing! :D

    Oh the whole site is quite an education AND it is huge - some 120 pages!
    I like the way this site looks and works (surprise-surprise!) - http://britishcarrots.co.uk/
    Yes an image showing the main carrot colours above (or below) a navigation bar of the main sections (see below).
    The structure of the site is:
    1. a front landing page which introduces the main sections of the site:
    History - Wild - Cultivation - Nutrition - Recipes/cooking - Trivia
    2. Each of those introductory pages has many pages "behind it" going into more depth about those individual sections
    So for instance History then goes on to several time periods - see http://www.carrotmuseum.co.uk/history.html
    So I would like a nice, unique, front page style then every landing page in a different style from that front page but otherwise the same as each other. .OR a simple page which can be used throughout the site.
    I would also like a site search and the usual links (perhaps at the foot) a contact us page and a links page. The site also operates a Twitter feed.
    Some of your template sites I like: Garden Walkthrough Organic Gardening, Organic Food
    I like the "boxy" layouts" which seem to reflect my current front page. I like people to be able to see at a glance what they are looking for and go to it directly (as possible)
    Does all that make sense?

    Love it! Only one dislike - the black & white background image behind "Discover the Power"

    What would the linked pages look like?

    Where do I go from here?

    Mimoun Administrator Staff Member Director Verified Member

    John what would you like to replace the header image with?
    Just remove or a colored photo?
    Linked pages is the second phase, first we make a homepage you like then go to the step of designing the inner pages based on the homepage design.
    Also this is just a picture mock up, we still need to do HTML5 and CSS coding in a 3rd phase.

    Hi Mimoun

    A coloured photo please. I have plenty if you are struggling to find one. I always try and emphasise the various colours of carrots throughout the ages so if you can incorporate the attached image (or part of it) that would be great. I have larger version if required.

    Can I just say, this is FANTASTIC, very much appreciated.

    My website sort of stuck in the 90's and I am not really knowledgeable of "modern" web design or mark up language etc, so be gentle with me if I do not understand some terminology and "new" html or CSS.

    That's a great picture. Did you take the photo yourself? If not do you own the copyright to it?
