I don’t always follow set conventions as far as design is concerned so some people may disagree here but personally…

1. I would halve the height of the big image so you can have some text below it which would stay there no matter what photo you’re looking at – that would be a great place for the site owner to tell us all about him/her plus get found by Google. It would also give a space for the copyright sentence (everybody likes them) ©2009 Whoever.com

2. I would addd a ‘skills’ page where the owner can talk about what skills he/she has as a Photographer; I know a few professional photographers so I know there are many arts/skills to photography.

3. I’d also add a ‘Clients’ page (that should keep TF happy) where the owner could talk about their famous clients, maybe a few logos to make it look pretty.

themolitor – MultipleIEs is rubbish (in my opinion), try http://www.my-debugbar.com/wiki/IETester/HomePage

My client has IE6 and no intention of updating, I’ve told them the reason but it’s not going to be so my question is…how do I test for IE6 on my PC which has IE7 installed? I tried a program called ‘Multiple IE’ but it doesnt show the site the same way as it does on my client’s proper IE6 .

Any ideas or just a website that shows how it would look on IE6 would be a great help, thanks.

I know not all search engines care much for the meta ‘robots’ tag but I’m wondering if it would be a good idea to go ‘index,nofollow’ on my Portfolio page (where there are links to live websites) as I don’t want to be marked down for linking out to unrelated websites.

Any feedback please?

Thanks for your reply mate but I actually gave up and used my own fonts Georgia and Lucida.

Deffo agree with that. Not being an author at TF (at the moment) I can only speculate but I think many authors do the ‘tried-and-tested’ designs to earn $$; after all, you wouldn’t want to slave away on a theme for weeks to earn very little.

99% of the designers here have some real talent and I personally think TF would benefit from people breaking out, not just from this design mould but also from the whole ‘Portfolio’ theme – why not try something like this:
  • Nightclub theme
  • Driving instructor theme
  • Haunted house theme
  • Modelling Agency
  • These are all subjects I have personally been asked to design many times.

I don’t want to offend anyone, I mean this only as a constructive comment. I know ‘themes’ are just templates to be tuned by the buyer but in reality a lot of people who buy these themes hardly change them at all so there’s definately an opening there.

I have a number of people interested in becoming affiliates for a product I sell but I’m not sure how to make affiliate links so’s I know who sent the customer. Any ideas please? I think it’s a CGI thing isn’t it?

Do you recognise Fonts better than the ‘WhatTheFont’ website? If so, could you tell me the names of these fonts please:
