I design in Fireworks and code using Notepad ++. I find Fireworks a lot quicker to use so suits my workflow. The PC I use is a pretty standard Packard Bell running Windows7. The most recent upgrade was a Radeon HD5770 .

I about to start looking for a laptop so I can work mobile. As much as I would love a mac I am really put off by the step prices.

Even when it came out it wasn’t a good browser.
Compared to what was available back then it was a super modern high end browser :)
That doesn’t make it a good browser, it just makes it better than what was available at the time. It like saying those huge 80s mobile phones were good because they were better than the competition.

If it was a good browser it wouldn’t have aged so horrifically.

At first I thought the comparisons with Unite were unfair but having seen them side by side it looks like an exact copy without the detail. I think it’s also that lack of detail that would prevent it from being accepted had it not been a copy of another design.

The simplest solution is use an existing CMS and template (WordPress, Drupal, etc) and set them up with a google analytics account and tracking code.

You’ve had to pay to use it commercially for a few months now.

I have been looking into a way of preventing WordPress from adding the random paragraph tags in shortcodes. Is there a way to remove the filter only from the content of a shortcode? The only solution I have been able to find so far is to remove the filter altogether which I am reluctant to do.

What do you mean by start page? If you mean a home page template then I would say yes you should add one to your themes as a lot of people use WordPress as a CMS rather than just a straight forward blog.

If you make substantial changes to the core features you would have an argument to release it as a completely new theme but I imagine the reviewers would expect to see a clearly altered design as well to differentiate it.

I agree with everyone else in that you should charge for it. Any customisation work you do does not come with a lifetime of upgrades. You did a job for them to the brief you were given at the time so they have no reason to complain.
