I think it is unfair to complain about design and visual aspects. What is important is the purpose for which it added and how that purpose connects and affects the other sections. (cross linking, diversions etc) For my eyes visually that is perfect. Personally my worry is we are disturbing buyers from deep selection of items.

Don’t make something unless is it both necessary and useful but if it is both necessary and useful don’t hesitate to make it beautiful.

fortunately buyers come here for authors work not for how the top header looks.

but having nice clothes when selling is a plus for the vendor. :)
Well you know… If I have a 20 year old car it WILL take me to the place I want. But if I had a brand new Ferrari I somehow would be more happy about it regardless of the fact that it does much or less the same thing as the 20 year old junk car. Probably a pure HTML site (like 20 years ago with no CSS at all) would also attract buyers as there is no better marketplace in therms of items quality. As for the header we are talking ONLY about the visual aspect of it (don’t think the UX is that great either, but that’s another story). The fact that “buyers come here for authors work not for how the top header looks” doesn’t mean it can look like crap.

I actually think this looks more than bad. I can’t believe that bunch of designers and developers from envato with several years of experience in webdesign came up with something like this. Looks more like a poor first attempt of a designer who never heard the term whitespace.

@davidbo90 That would be exactly what we have now on TF :/

PS. I can bet every single penny, that if such template would have been uploaded to ThemeForest reviewers would never accept it!

2. About the wpautop – I know we cannot screw with the wp core but can we still filter for example our shortcodes to avoid p and br tags injection all over the theme?
No, you cannot do that. Those filters cause major compatibility problems with hundreds of plugins. I’ve personally lost 100s of support hours due to those filters. Utilize this instead: justintadlock.com/archives/2012/10/03/grid-columns-wordpress-plugin
No, they don’t if done right: https://gist.github.com/bitfade/4555047

Yes I am using this one – well not exactly word by word, but close enough. Hope it will be ok. I know that there are plugins for grid etc. but as someone already said why should I have to be forced to use someones plugin? Or even someones way of doing something HE think is right?

So just to be sure

1. It will be ok to use shortcodes if I put them into a plugin? And for shortcodes that are inadmissible I have to provide other plugins to do the job? So all in all in the end we will provide a theme with TGM that will install 20 other plugins right?
