I got an brief email from Thom Meredith Monday that read:
Hi, just wanted you to check out my site that I built using Typepad and using your site as a great guide (no other site had as many great tips)
The link was to www.latimesmagazine.com. Go check it out, it's amazing.
The entire site is built on TypePad, but each section is customized to present its content differently. Category archives such as 50 and Turn it Up use image icons to spice up the list, while the individual entries are customized to display the feature material at it's best. Throughout the site, slideshows, mouseovers, and dynamic content all come together to present engaging content cleanly, quickly and without feeling cluttered or overdone. Rather than showing you screenshots, I'd urge you to go visit the site and explore all the sections to see them in action.
It's nice to know that after a year away from TypePad Hacks and a ton of changes to the platform, people are still finding value in the tutorials here.
