Already posted this somewhere else, but figured it fits better over here

Have the following table:

= ID = PRICE =
==============
- AA - 40000 -
- AA - 50000 -
- CC - 20000 -
- BB - 10000 -
- CC - 30000 -

I want to:

Group by ID, BUT show all – order by PRICE, also inside the group AND count group results.

Wanted results:

= ID = PRICE = COUNT =
======================
- BB - 10000 - 1

- CC - 20000 - 2
- CC - 35000 - 2

- AA - 30000 - 2
- AA - 50000 - 2

So even though the second CC price is higher than the first AA – it needs to be under the first CC because the first CC is lower that the first AA etc.

Anyone?

Can’t remember seeing a theme like such – but the idea is great though.

But – maybe you can find a normal blog and put it inside the title?

A lot of blog themes have big sized titles and the date is inside a small info text – so if you create a blog post title like: “Day 10 – Week 2: another thing” maybe you have sort of what you need..

So i guess we can conlude that most of us find all the animations an overkill – and some even the (mis)use of big sliders in general.

@parallelus has a good point. The cool factor attracts buyers, but a lot of ‘cool factors’ are there just to dazzle without considering if it’s beneficial for the content.

As for sliders in general – i think they still could make a site “lipsticked” sexy like Net-Labs mentioned. Problem with most sliders is that they’re mainly just a big block sitting on top of the site. Maybe when a slider is more integrated and related to surrounding content it does a bit more than only visual appearance.

Guess it’s up to us to make things better ey :)

Got an SSD and Dropbox, so I think I’m pretty much okay :)

i wouldn’t use an SSD for long term storage. also a online service is nice – but best is always to also actually have it at home or office.

If you run a business ( like me ) having your data safe is the first priority. Besides all the work done in all those years, there’s also things like administration, bills, invoices etc. you can’t lose them ( also have printed versions ofcourse ).

I work from a RAID system that always instantly saves everything to 2 harddrives. So if one breaks – i always have the second one with the latest data. Besides that i run backups to 2 other drives every day – that i swap each week. The backupdrive not in use should be in a safe or off-site ( in case a fire or something breaks out ).

So, i’m pretty sure i’m safe – unless….. a meteor hits my town or something :O

I’ve had a similar case like that, only not with photos but people claiming to be the ‘webdesigner’ handling the site and they need the theme or something.

Just don’t reply ( allthough i couldn’t resist to tell him where he could put his ‘webdesign’ skills :P )

I’m unlocking the thread for awhile in case there are any questions. Thanks everyone!

With all due respect, but sometimes threads are locked way too soon which is extremely annoying and mostly when it’s about a sensitive subject.


We have taken a more honest and brutal approach to our portfolio of themes, without any connection to the recent requirements.

We will only keep themes that we are actively supporting and updating, and at the same time themes that generate enough sales to justify this. Once a theme goes down in sales for a sufficient time we simply call it a day and remove it. I think this is only fair to the buyers community and to ourselves. We should not fill up the marketplace with items that are abandoned and no longer maintained (at the pace things evolve these days, if you don’t update your theme for half a year or so, we can definitely conclude that it’s abandoned).

This is not to start a quarrel with the authors here. Everybody wants to do good business. These are just my 2 cents on this matter.

+1 – Agree with this

It’s such a nice badge to have. With it’s color, curves, delicate lines. It just makes you all fuzzy inside :)

it actually doesn’t have any curves… it’s round ;)
