Hey guys and gals,

I’m looking to try and find someone who can create a rather deep and complex flash project in order to create an online invitation program almost exactly like http://www.invys.com

I am a graphic designer by trade and will be directing the artistic elements of the site and the layout etc. but I am not even in the ballpark when it comes to understanding the intricacies of Flash and especially actionscript (let alone something of this caliber).

Is there someone who feels confident they can create something like this? If so please drop me a line at elementel.net@gmail.com

I apologize beforehand if this kind of post is not allowed here.

John

I know right? but actually it was a pretty reasonable use of a table it was an exercise schedule made out in tabular form.

Ok I don’t know if this is the right place and I’m sure wordpress.org would be a more appropriate place but it’s just so huge that I don’t feel like I get any good responses to big questions like this.

So here it is. My clients all seem to know wordpress and want to use it. So I build them a template and then let them destroy, errrr, customize it themselves as they add their own pages and posts.

But one consistent problem I’ve seen everyone have is using the visual editor within wordpress. I’ve upgraded them to tinymce advanced and have even tried fckeditor. Both of them make all sorts of weird code and make really lousy mistakes. I thought my clients were just being wet behind the ears so I tried a few myself (I personally just use dreamweaver and then insert or can just code it if I have problems). So I try myself to do something so painfully simple as adding an image inside a table. So I’d click in the cell, press the insert media, choose a picture and then add to post. Voilah, now the picture is pasted above the table outside of the cell? So I cut it and then go into the cell and paste it, which is still BS but I’m willing to let it go. Now I want to add an additional image below that image. So I try the same thing, I’m just going to paste the same image again. Only trouble is, NOTHING I DO ALLOWS ME TO JUST GO RIGHT BELOW THE EXISTING IMAGE ! First of all inserting the cursor in there just to the right of the image is like playing Operation. Secondly, trying to press the cursor arrows sends you all over the fricking place. And then don’t ever ever ever hit return to go around the image unless you want thirty paragraphs inside the code!!

This is just the table experience. There are other for-instances but I’m not going to go into it. I’ll save myself the pain and you the drama.

Has anyone found a way to make the internal html editor work even half decent?

FWIW one of my clients actually has been using TinyMCE on her other site that is using a proprietary CMS . She loves it and it works fine. But the TinyMCE in wordpress has her calling me every fifteen minutes.

HELP !

Thanks guys and gals!

Are there any here based on the 960gs? I have just started learning about that and it seems really frickin rad.

Hey all,

I’ve been using wordpress for about a year now to design websites for my clients. If there’s one thing I’ve found that seems to be consistent with all themes I’ve used to try and deliver my client’s product it’s that they all tend to have quirks and issues with CSS , PHP and so on.

I want to get where I am cranking out site after site and I basically design by creating a psd that includes a basic shell for the site. I then chop it up into the background, the header, the body and the footer. Then I go to surgery and put the stuff in place.

What I really want is a wordpress template though that is so well commented, so well organized that it’s a snap to go in and make things happen. For instance, people using little pieces of image to create spaces between links? Seriously? Is this 1999? I really don’t mean to sound like a jerk so my apologies. But bottom line I really need a professionaly coded template that makes my efforts much more streamlined. And I’ll be the first to admit I AM NOT THE ONE TO DO IT . Plain and simple I’m really scatter brained. I don’t comment all the time, I don’t always follow the best syntax and sometimes I forget to tab in my code. Stuff like that. That’s why I need someone else who DOES do all that kinda thing to make a great basic template I can use for projects. A dark template and a light template, and then we’re set!

Does anyone else feel my pain or does anyone else have a template or theme they can recommend??
