This is called a hard rejection – when your template needs quite a lot of work they don’t give specific details.
Here’s my honest feedback: your template currently is a bit of a mess, there appears to be several sort of styles going on. The typography is awful in some places, the spacing is not consistent, elements don’t line up at the edges etc. The “Why do you Choose Appolo” section in particular looks just awful; that text shadow is hideous!
I recommend you read up on web design and start by creating something much more simple. Just keep creating more and more, and you will get better eventually.
I’ve had bad experiences with 1&1 before and haven’t used them since, I can’t say my experience with GoDaddy was much better though!
I use IntoVPS now, but a VPS with them is unmanaged – so if you know a bit about servers, or are up for the challenge of learning about them, it’s a pretty good deal at $10/month
I’m interested in doing this for you – please contact me through my profile.
Many thanks, Toby
I’m looking for a list of WordPress themes and HTML templates that use a description in the navigation menu. One example I’ve found is SmartStart, are there any others?
Thanks in advance!
Don’t like this at all either. It looks rubbish.
This is a much bigger change than adjusting the background colour, where’s the thread about it?
It is a genuine forum, a lot of the people on there do make some money through internet marketing techniques such as affiliate programs. A lot of the WP plugins on there are a bit crap, but they appeal to the internet marketing crowd.
What you need to distinguish between is the forum itself, where if you wanted to take up internet marketing you might find some useful information, and the WSO (Warrior Special Offers) Forum which is just full of people selling crap to gullible idiots
Usually your functions.php would contain something like this to register a slider:
wp_register_script( 'slider', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/slider.js' ); wp_enqueue_script( 'jquery' ); wp_enqueue_script( 'slider' );
or, you can use this, which has the dependency jQuery so you don’t need to enqueue it separately.
wp_register_script( 'slider', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/slider.js', array( 'jquery' ) ); wp_enqueue_script( 'slider' );
Finally in the simplest form, you can just use this:
wp_enqueue_script( 'slider', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/slider.js', array( 'jquery' ) );
I agree, not cool.
I’m a bit confused about what you’re looking for… as far as I know this is how most portfolio themes work, this is how I do it anyway:
A portfolio item is added through the custom post type ‘Portfolio’, this just looks like a standard post, but is added through a separate menu within WordPress.
The image shown in the area of the theme that displays portfolio items is the featured image, or post thumbnail, set when you create the post.
Clicking on this thumbnail will usually take you to the actual post, which is whatever the user puts into the WYSIWYG editor within the post creation screen. Most themes choose to show the featured image on this page as well, but in full size.
This whole process is separate from standard posts, usually with separate categories and tags.
