I like it as well but here are a few small things to get you started:
- Add some navigation to the featured slider
- Make navigation items show as selected when on page. About link should show as selected when on about page
- Perhaps adjust the font size of slider, heading & logo on homepage as they are all too similar in size
- Sidebar is awkward in spacing and too wide. Perhaps add some padding on the inside of the list items.
- For me, I dislike the pushing down of buttons on click, but that’s just a personal one
Your quick at adding a sidebar . Personally your killing me by using Default Permalinks! Those url’s look hideous.
The hover effect on the navigation doesn’t really go well with your overall design. Swap it to something less contrasting.
Surface your HTML Codes in the navigation as buyer’s want to see this (Randomly found them typing in a default search):
Homepage is too bland for me. Spacing doesn’t match the rest of the website.
Overall I like the design but I feel like your missing features or maybe our just not showing them off.
I’ll give you another option by saying Dreamhost has been great for me. It’s affordable, reliable, and fast.
Don’t get Godaddy Hosting(Not that you were considering). They have tons of problems, with WordPress especially.
How do you make options, for example, for slider images?
I assume you can select posts for the slider and use images from the posts – but how do you setup the ordering of the slides?Am I missing something here or ?

Your in luck. There is a WordPress version of the same template:
ffmi, you shouldn’t need anything special to upload basic PHP files. Just upload the PHP files to the server as if they were HTML files. They are included to make your life easier. Example: the header and footer can be updated in one file rather than having to be updated on every single .HTML page. This is done via PHP Includes, nothing special. Contact forms are commonly done in PHP as well but this won’t really have minimum requirements or anything to setup.
The search is probably just a design and still will not function when you upload the PHP files. More than likely it is included as a placeholder for a WordPress version down the road or if buyers want to convert the Site Template themselves.
