    Here is a coupon site currently under development with the responsive Framework:

    Couponic: Australian Promo Codes.

    Features:
    Menu altered with only css, Twitter Bootstrap is awesome.
    Tabs utilised with specific custom queries.
    Customised Hierarchy, Taxonomy and Permalink system.
    Community Focused and Coupon Only, not a fan of generic type deals.
    Taxonomy Pages rewritten to allow for various sorting abilities Example:
    The Iconic Coupons
    Tabbed Active and Unreliable Section.

    Still a heap to do but getting there.

    Brilliant, you have chosen some of my favorite colors, real nice site.
    Love the use of fabric graphics.

    One of the if not the best coupon site I have seen, for most you need to put your shades on before viewing. 😎

    Well done Aaron.

    Can’t wait for the Shop Responsive.

    You enjoyed doing that I can tell, your list of enhancements sounds like someone who has customized and suped-up a motorcycle or car. 😉

    Cheers guys, True David, its been like a labor of love thus far 🙂 The current VPS it is on is driving me nuts though. Not looking forward to setting it up again an another server – Cant find a decent Aussie host to save myself, and I have been through a few 🙁

    Aaron how are you finding customizing with the new framework over the old one?

    Not many issues here Mark. Most of it was figuring out how the css works in regards to the multi CSS class “span”
    I customised the gallerypage somewhat and made my own version. There was a rogue div in there that drove me crazy for a while 🙂
    I have noticed though the coupon popup does not work with shortcodes – may have to edit it in the template.

    All good thus far, great work on a great framework!

    Hi Aaroon… Good stuff, at least now I have a website that inspired me on making a coupon website.

    Really interested to learn on how you pull it out together 🙂

    Thanks guys.

    @zhiwei You can change the width of the searchbar in your child themes _functions.php where the div class spans are declared. I am using Span 10 for the box and span 2 for the input.

    An idea of how Spans are used in bootstrap: https://getbootstrap.com/2.3.2/scaffolding.html#gridSystem

    Nice work on your website Aaron. I appreciate your help with the search box code to remove the store drop-down menu.
