That’s one of the most hilarious tweets I’ve seen. Long live Google Chrome.
IE 9 , it slices, it dices, chops and blends. But wait there’s more! It mows your lawn, grates your cheese and tons of other stuff…can your browser do this?
Thanks for this thread for some revealing insights into Magento. I’ve been using Wordpress themes for clients wanting simple e-commerce sites but lately I’ve had more serious inquiries and and would prefer using a platform built for e-commerce. I’m a little scared of the learning curve though as I know absolutely nothing about Magento, but there’s no time like the present.
I resorted to using a classified ad theme for a business district in NYC which I modified for a business directory (from another theme provider), but the closest thing I saw on TF was Open Press, but it doesn’t have the style I’m looking for.
There is a site that offers a paid business directory with all the bells and whistles for $10,000 US, and I think all those features can be easily duplicated by the quality TF authors here. Not sure if I can post that link.
Just want to say thank you for this collection. It not only saved so much time browsing the various marketplaces but also made me aware of other items that may be of use to me, not only now but which I can bookmark as well. For example, dtbakers Ultimate Client Manager, though from 2009, was exactly what I needed but never knew existed on Envato nor looked for here or elsewhere, and now I found it.
Or maybe it found me
Try FTP , it should work. You have to unzip the folder and make sure that it’s only the theme folder that’s uploaded. Most (if not all) downloaded themes have the actual theme folder inside the zipped folder and many users mistakenly attempt to upload the original downloaded zipped folder via Wordpress and therefore get the error.
Wow, I was just thinking that same thing a few minutes ago and coming from both veteran TF authors and new, for example Kriesi’s new BroadScope and DM Themes CircloSquero (which looks like a runaway success).
How are you uploading- via Wordpress or by FTP ?
P.S. Serious stuff aside, maybe the one thing you got right was the girl in the red bikini
OMG , you have to be joking. I’m a theme buyer but they’re absolutely right my friend. Credit to you that you’ve put in many hours of hard work but in my opinion this is so not up to TF standards. Where do I start- the fonts, the layout, the menu itself. You say ‘oodles of options’, where are they? How can I demo them? Are there any shortcodes, alternative home pages, skins, backgrounds, social media links etc.?
I’m sorry, but if you put this alongside Periodic theme or Link by wearepixel8 and peerapong the difference will be clear. Options are great but if the theme’s overall look is sub-par then the options won’t matter. As a theme buyer I go for the look first to determine if the theme will be a good fit for my client, then I check the features hoping all are there. If not, I ask for them or try to live with them, or look for another theme until I find a compromise.
My advice is to go back to the drawing board in Photoshop or have a designer create one for you, then slice it up and add your options.
